Did you watch beyond his opening statement? I had the same thought, but he widens the scope and quotes certain bodies' position and their push to expand immigration. Even if framed as a purely humanitarian argument he shows that it doesn't hold up to scrutiny.

I'm watching it, and the only bodies he talks about are "some people" and "the elites". I've never heard this argument before either.

I watched until the point where he started adding a second batch of gumballs to represent the people living in countries with a lower average wage than mexico.

But isn't that the problem? They're portraying immigration as 'think of the starving Africans' but actually bringing in University educated Nigerians/Egyptians etc.

Well you're part of the problem then. Can't even bother to watch a 5 min video of someones ideas. He goes on to say that American politicians will keep brining in 1mil immigrants and hurting the lower class Americans, instead of tackling the root of the problem, which is to make those countries better. The implication is that we should stop offering support to shit holes by immigration, to make ourselves feel better, but to actually help those shit holes.
