REP. GUTIÉRREZ: “SENSIBLE MAJORITY” THAT APPROVED HOMELAND SECURITY FUNDING BILL COULD ADDRESS IMMIGRATION IF LEADERS ALLOW IT
Today, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives to “congratulate” the Speaker and the Republican majority on – finally – passing a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security, but admonished his Republican colleagues that the government shut-down crisis “should never have come to this.”
Today, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez issued the following statement in reaction to the vote in the House of Representatives that approved spending for the Department of Homeland Security and avoids a partial government shutdown:
"The Republican Party’s goal of forcing this President to deport all the non-citizens they want deported will simply never be achieved until the Republican Party elects one of their own to the White House. And the strategy of the Republican Party…pretty much guarantees that one of their own will not get to the White House any time soon.”
