Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) Wednesday suggested that pregnant women should be forced to give birth to “fill jobs” and solve the “population growth problem.”
Greene made the remarks during a House Oversight Committee hearing on immigration policy.
“Sitting in here earlier, I was listening to the discussion on jobs and that the whole reason claimed by my colleagues on the other side of the aisle is that they want to bring in as many illegal aliens as possible, give them amnesty so they can fill jobs in America,” Greene claimed. “And then they talked about that we have a population growth problem in the United States.”
“Well, I think we can all say that if maybe, perhaps, 63 million people weren’t murdered in the womb, we wouldn’t have a population growth problem, would we?” she asked. “That’s not women’s reproductive rights. That’s called abortion. It’s called murder.”
Greene blamed abortion rights for slowing population growth.
“But Democrats claim that we’ve got to replace Americans with illegal aliens to fill jobs,” she said, referring to the theory that immigrants are replacing white Americans.
“That’s their solution,” Greene complained. “And take away jobs from Americans.”
