Luis Gutierrez publicly chides President Obama for not supporting immigration laws

April 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

Don’t count on Rep. Luis Gutierrez automatically throwing his support behind President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. The Representative said that Obama needs to step up efforts to reform the nation’s immigration laws to win him over. Gutierrez, who has been on a multi-city tour to raise awareness of the effects of deportations on immigrants and their families, made the comments at a church in Pilsen. “There are four million American citizen children, and those four million American citizen children shouldn’t have a federal government whose main goal is the destruction of their family,” said Gutierrez. Rep. Gutierrez was a major supporter of the DREAM Act — a federal proposal that gives illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship through college enrollment and military service. The legislation was blocked last year. He also wants the government to offer options to illegal immigrant parents whose children are US citizens. (nbc)

NOTE: Under this President, there have been about 800,000 deportations. Gutierrez is an Illinois Democrat, as is Obama. This public statement really says something about the ways things stand today.
