Ohio Republican Bernie Moreno, a candidate for U.S. Senate, has released a video message telling those seeking to immigrate to America illegally to “wait in line.”
“Everyone is angry when you’re waiting your turn and someone cuts in line, whether at a grocery store, an airline gate, or a public bathroom,” Moreno says in the video. “But when an illegal immigrant cuts the line, no one is angrier than the legal immigrant — I should know. My family came here when I was five years old.”
Moreno continued, noting in the video that he “achieved the American dream” and explained that this is a “personal” issue for him to discuss:
I came here legally. I learned the language. I started a business, and like many immigrants, I achieved the American dream. This is personal to me. I firmly believe we have to stop illegal immigration.
