Brian Bilbray, Leader of Republican Anti-Immigrant Caucus, Accuses Democrats Who Support the DREAM Act of Being Accessories to Murder
Will GOP distance themselves from this whacko, or let him speak for the Party?
WASHINGTON - September 22 - Representative Brian Bilbray (R-CA), who chairs the House Immigration Reform Caucus, wrote an anti-DREAM Act screed in The Hill that takes anti-immigrant politicking to a new and dangerous low.
In the essay, "Something to consider before casting a vote for the DREAM Act," Bilbray noted the horrible massacre of 72 migrants in Mexico at the hands of a drug and human smuggling cartel and had the unmitigated gall to write the following:"Unfortunately, some people in Congress and in the business community share the responsibility for the murders. When my colleagues talk about providing amnesty (or ‘a pathway to citizenship') they become an accessory to these murders. When they support amnesty, introduce bills that provide a pathway to citizenship and, in the most irresponsible of cases, use amnesty to motivate voters, they tell people: ‘work with the cartels and come across our border illegally, for we will eventually give you amnesty and citizenship.' This talk of amnesty is not only an insult to every American who has come to the United States legally and the millions who wait patiently while playing by the rules, but is in part what makes it possible for the cartels to murder those 72 innocent migrant workers."
