That is so false it deserves no response.
Well, maybe you could explain your understanding of why Guest Worker programs exist at all.
In countries that are welcoming to immigrants, such as Canada, they don't have guest worker programs. Countries such as Japan, Germany and France are culturally hostile to immigration, they rely on large guest worker programs. (Germany's experience is a good lesson: they are stuck with a huge, segregated population of Turks who are non-citizens and resentful of the their German overlords.)
I can think of no reason for a guest worker program other than hostility to accepting people of other ethnicities as legal immigrants and full citizens. Can you offer any other explanation?
Republicans are wildly enthusiastic about Guest Worker programs, they want them an order of magnitude larger. Rep. Labrador said Guest Worker programs are essential to limiting illegal immigration. What other interpretation can there be, other than that he is hostile to expanding legal immigration?
America's is the great melting pot, the land of immigration. When did Republicans turn against American values?
