Former INS special agent ties national debt to illegal immigration

Are illegal immigrants partly to blame for the national debt? Former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) agent Michael Cutler thinks so and he explained why on this episode of "The Conservative Cartel."

Cutler cites several reasons for the economic downturn in America including:

  • Foreign workers who compete with Americans for jobs.
  • Remittances being sent out from both legal and illegal foreign workers to their homelands amounting to $70 billion.
  • And the American government for allowing it to happen.
  • Barack Obama's executive actions on U.S. immigration policies ("DREAMers").
