Paul Ryan’s buddy Luis Gutierrez on the GOP: “It is almost as if they despise all of our children”

posted at 2:01 pm on August 1, 2014 by Allahpundit

That’s Charlie Spiering’s quotation of what he said today in reaction to the new House border crisis bill. I haven’t seen video yet but HuffPo quotes him substantially the same way:

This is the same guy with whom Paul Ryan’s been working on comprehensive immigration reform for years, and of whom Ryan said last year, “He’s not trying to play politics, he is sincere in trying to find common ground to solve the immigration problem and I very much appreciate that.” Common ground, evidently, encompasses, “you hate our children.” In reality, there’s no one in the House who’s consistently more willing to demagogue Republicans as anti-Latino for resisting a massive amnesty sellout (so far) than Gutierrez. And yet, he’s forever being placed by Democrats at the center of immigration negotiations. He was a member of the House’s doomed version of the “Gang of Eight” and he’s invariably included when the White House huddles with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on immigration. The next time you hear a liberal lament Steve King’s influence over the Republican caucus, remind them that the fate of immigration policy in America seems to revolve around this sleazy A-hole, by the consent of their own leadership — and the GOP’s. Right, Paul?

And no, the curious use of “our” in the quote isn’t an accident or Freudian slip. Gutierrez has been candid about where his allegiances lie:

“He’s as close as the Latino community has to a Martin Luther King figure,” says Frank Sharry, founder of the pro-immigrant group America’s Voice. Yet Gutierrez’s tactics are controversial. While many admire his tenacity and credit him with keeping immigration reform alive, others, including members of the Obama administration, believe his confrontational style can be counterproductive. He sees things more simply. “I have only one loyalty,” he says, “and that’s to the immigrant community.”

If I were Boehner, I’d pass whatever they’re going to pass today and then walk away until Gutierrez apologizes. Part of the reason demagoguery from liberal attack dogs in Congress is so nasty on this issue is because they pay no price for it. On the contrary, they have every incentive to ramp it up: The more they accuse Republicans of racism, the more GOP leaders seem to tremble and start murmuring about comprehensive immigration reform again. Boehner’s repudiated King before, publicly and privately. Let’s hear Pelosi or Reid or Obama open their mouths for once if Gutierrez won’t do it himself.

And by the way, it’s time for Republicans who speak Spanish to start paying attention to this jackhole’s press conferences. Here’s an interesting tidbit I hadn’t heard before courtesy of WaPo reporter Ed O’Keefe:

One of the reasons even the Senate’s Gang of Eight bill demands that illegals learn English before being legalized is to encourage assimilation. If huge swaths of the population speak different languages, balkanization is inevitable. Assuming O’Keefe is right, Gutierrez is exploiting the language barrier for political ends, encouraging balkanization by presenting two different versions of political reality depending on which language one speaks. Again, this is one of the most influential people in America when it comes to immigration policy. Pull the plug, Boehner.

“I have only one loyalty,” he says, “and that’s to the immigrant community.”

Then that disqualifies you from office, as your oath of office swears you to protect and defend the Constitution… and place The Law above the “immigrant illegal alien community”.

Since you are refusing to carry out the oath you have sworn, you should be immediately impeached and removed from office.

“There is a dentist on site,” Lucero said.

Isn’t that special.

I wonder how many poor or low-income Americans would like to have the chance to get free treatment from a dentist.

I recall a story from a few years ago when a dental group went into a town in the U.S. and offered free dental work to poor Americans. They were inundated by people who could not afford a dentist; some who had not seen a dentist in many years. People were lined up as far as the eye could see in the photo accompanying the article. The dental group had to stop taking people in, because there were just so many waiting.

Yet despite all the Americans in need, our tax dollars are now being used to provide “free” dental care to foreigners who have come here in violation of our laws.

You can’t make this shit up.

You’ve got to hand it to those tough Hispanic kiddies. Traveling, UNESCORTED, through 600 miles of the most forbidding country on earth. Outlaws and murderers behind every bush and rock.
Traveling through crocodile infested swamps and rattlesnake infested deserts. No food and no water . Kids that tough don’t need our help or sympathy. They could all get jobs as Ranger training instructors.

“Speaking at Democratic news conference on immigration, Rep. Joe Garcia says, “We’re looking at possibly one of the most anti-Hispanic Congress in Generations.”

Did you know that DHS is now putting up help-button signs near the border with instructions in English, Spanish and Chinese — because so many of the illegal aliens coming across the border now are Chinese?

It’s true.

So I guess anyone opposed to the current invasion of our country is also part of one of the most anti-Chinese generations too, right Luis?

Best post by Allah in a long time. But it needs to go further.

This is the same guy with whom Paul Ryan’s been working on comprehensive immigration reform for years, and of whom Ryan said last year, “He’s not trying to play politics, he is sincere in trying to find common ground to solve the immigration problem and I very much appreciate that.”

I don’t really care about Gutierrez. Guys like that are what they are. In fact I’ll give him credit – he’s honest about where he stands, he’s tough, and he stands by his constituency. Would that our guys were the same.

The problem is guys like Paul Ryan. Our guys. Every one of them is worthless, and, believe me, that includes Ted Cruz.

Paul Ryan needs to go bye-bye. Toss him out. He’s vulnerable. Find a decent candidate, hire Dave Brat’s campaign manager, and primary the guy. Look around for some Dem votes if that’s what it takes. They did it to conservatives, why can’t conservatives turn around and do it to them?

Cantor was a start, but the GOP leadership sees his defeat as a fluke. Even so, with all the advanced warning, they had to go all out and mightily soil themselves to keep Cochran alive in Mississippi. They can’t keep that up.

BTW, I hope conservatives vote Democrat in that election and toss Cochran out of office. Can you do that?

Joseph K on August 1, 2014 at 3:43 PM

“Previously, the people being held at the facility were called detainees. Now they will be called residents. Guards are now called resident advisors. Even the facility itself will be referred to as a resident center rather than a detention center…

Lucero said the building will provide a safe and sound environment for families who are waiting for either asylum or a return to their home country.

“While they are getting their due process and going through the proceedings, we will provide a safe environment for them.”

The amenities do not stop simply at safe. Families will be given a health examination upon arrival along with six sets of fresh clothing for each member. Doctor attention will be available at all times and residents will have access to a dentist. Even the walls of the center have been painted with many colorful characters and pictures as many children are expected to call it home.

“There will be cartoons playing for children and games of that nature,” said Lucero.

Other amenities include recreational fields, a library, internet access, and a cafeteria which will serve three all-you-can-eat meals a day. Certified teachers will also be on site to provide year-round education and small jobs will also be available paying $3 a day for four hours of work…”

In case you missed the Lord of the land flies

obama has saved us!

Paraphrased:

He has added 1.2 million jobs so far this year..
Best numbers since the wonderful days of the late 1990s, he said.

He didn’t mention that 78% of them are servants, illegal alien invaders, and 18% of them are for lawyers for illegal alien invaders.

And the rest being part time private sector jobs.

And also he saved the world by working with Russia to make Iran and Ukraine into Free States or something.

And if Putin does what 0bama wants, he will help Russia grow its economy too.

Punk ranted about the republicans in congress.

Said he will do what he wants, since they won’t act, but they are stupid to complain that he does what he wants, because it is their fault for not doing what he wants.

He is the only one with common sense. Everyone else just plays political games to get the TEA party radicals to like them.

He also said that 80% of Americans (peasants) agree with his plan to secure the border and take care of the broken immigration system… and 80% of the Republicans in the House and Senate agree too.

But that damn 20% TEA Party racist xenophobe pool won’t let the good ones do what needs to be done.

The Eunuch in Chief then biatched about not being asked about his birthday (God, why wasn’t his mom more of a leftist?) and his Martha’s Vineyard vacation…and then he showed the land and the world a big finger and departed.

You’re welcome!

Assuming O’Keefe is right, Gutierrez is exploiting the language barrier for political ends, encouraging balkanization by presenting two different versions of political reality depending on which language one speaks.

This is exactly the same thing we see from the Middle East where Palestinians, Iran, etc. will say how they want to negotiate and reach compromise when speaking in English and then turn around and, in essence, say “Death to America” when speaking Arabic.

MEMRI has untold number of examples of this.

Looks like the Dem Latinos are learning that lesson in dishonesty.

RdLake on August 1, 2014 at 4:42 PM

There’s a lot more vulnerabilities LuisGutierrez has had for years. The fact that he’s still approvingly given airtime and quotes in the MSM doesn’t speak highly of those who should have been working to discredit him for years.

Likewise with @EliseFoley but to a much lesser extent. On Twitter I trapped her in to a position that would be that of opponents of the DREAMAct, yet when I pointed out she should oppose that she clammed up. That would have been a good opportunity for others to chime in. Making a HuffPo reporter admit that the DA would harm U.S. students would be very valuable.

In the current case, the answer to Gutierrez’ quote is to turn the “compassion” argument around. Point out that those who encourage kids to cross the border are by doing that increasing the number of border deaths. You can make that argument to, for instance, those @KirstenPowers tweets at or those who tweet at her. If only a few dozen people consistently made that argument, we could turn the “compassion” argument around. But, you have to do that to those who’ve bought in to that argument.

How Will Obama Pay For His Next Illegal Alien Amnesty?

But Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is an unprecedented abuse of that prosecutorial discretion. Obama isn’t just deciding which illegal immigrants he will or will not pursue. He is also granting those that meet his made up criteria a special new status that also allows them to get work permits, a Social Security number, and a drivers license.

Setting up a new legalization program and adminsitering the many new rules for who does and does not qualify for that program costs a lot of money. But Congress never approved Obama’s amnesty and never approved any money for it.

So where did Obama get this money? The New York Times reports:

Many thousands of Americans seeking green cards for foreign spouses or other immediate relatives have been separated from them for a year or more because of swelling bureaucratic delays at a federal immigration agency in recent months.

The long waits came when the agency, Citizenship and Immigration Services, shifted attention and resources to a program President Obama started in 2012 to give deportation deferrals to young undocumented immigrants, according to administration officials and official data. …

Until recently, an American could obtain a green card for a spouse, child or parent — probably the easiest document in the immigration system — in five months or less. But over the past year, waits for approvals of those resident visas stretched to 15 months, and more than 500,000 applications became stuck in the pipeline, playing havoc with international moves and children’s schools and keeping families apart.

(emphasis added) In other words, Obama stole money from legal immigrants who played by the rules, and gave it to the illegal immigrants who benefitted from his DACA program.

If the House had approved Obama’s $3.7 billion request for the border crisis he created, he could have just used that windfall to pay for his next unilateral amnesty.

But now that conservatives have blocked Obama’s supplemental request, how will Obama pay for his next amnesty?

Gee… Obama stole money from legal immigrant families playing by the rules to give to illegal aliens who benefited from his DACA program. Must mean he hates legal immigrant children.

Let’s ask Luis.

thatsafactjack on August 1, 2014 at 4:53 PM

NRO’s Andrew Johnson reports on the presser:

President Obama gave forewarning that Congress’s failure to act on the border crisis will force him to use executive action to address it.

“I’m going to have to act alone, because we don’t have enough resources,” he said on Friday from the White House briefing room, saying the administration will have to reallocate funding in the meantime to cover basic functions.

“We’ve already been very clear: We’ve run out of money.”

The House is still working on a bill to address to border situation, and is expected to vote on it later in the day. The Senate, on the other hand, has already left for the August recess.

The president pulled no punches in his comments regarding the House’s decision to pull a bill yesterday, and took shots at the Republican infighting.

“In circumstances where even basic, commonsense, plain-vanilla legislation can’t pass because House Republicans consider it somehow a compromise of their principles,

or giving Obama a victory,

then we’ve got to take actions. Otherwise, we’re not going to be making progress on the things American people care about,” he said.

What the heck? If we have “run out of money,” then we don’t instigate a crisis, idjit. Or is that how you have always run your own personal finances?

“Plain-vanilla legislation”??? Is that a dog whistle to slur those who oppose funding lawlessness?

“Giving Obama a victory”??? The boy-king is now referring to himself in the royal third-person? And he makes any opposition personal as a typical narcissist does?

Making “progress”? There is that word again. Apparently he is reading the wrong polls, too. The American US, tax-paying citizen is not interested in supporting the world’s gate-crashers.

Gutierrez is going to keep being quoted as if he were a normal quote source no matter what anyone says about him here.

In order to change things, people are going to need to take smart action.

So, let’s say @ANewYorkTimesReporter writes “Steve King, who famously [cantaloupes etc.] said” but doesn’t write about Gutierrez in the same way.

You then point out what the reporter did on Twitter, asking how he can justify that. When the reporter doesn’t respond, you then look up those he speaks with and point out the reporter’s bias. You do that over and over in many different cases and eventually they’ll get the hint.

Gutierrez has the blood of thousands of children on his hands. He is like a man who, trying to be popular, irresponsibly invites all children over to swim in a pool while tearing down the fences and sending the lifeguards away. When the inevitable tragedy he created occurs, he hides behind race to try to blame others for the carnage that he himself has caused through his own reckless actions.

Fax this Congressman. His words are deplorable, and by making the choice to speak more stridently in Spanish Gutierrez has demonstrated that he cares not a whit about this country or the complexities of illegal immigration.

He won’t accept emails outside his district. But his fax number is 202-225-7810. What a hateful, despicable person. I hope Paul Ryan’s eyes have been opened.
