Okay, here we go. That was fast. Democrats are keying up to frame the issue, so to speak.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), one of the most vocal proponents of executive action on immigration, last night accused Republicans of being prejudiced against Latinos for worrying about illegal immigrants crossing the Mexican border.
Gutierrez said immigrants come into the country in other ways, such as on airplanes, so he indicated Republicans must be racists for focusing on stemming illegal immigration from “our neighbors to the south.”
If you wanna make it about people from Latin American, if you wanna to use xenophobia, if you wanna use bigotry and hatred and prejudice, then you wanna to mix up the facts . . . they always wanna to make this about our neighbors to the south.
