Speaking in Spanish, Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez claimed Republicans wanted to punish his community by not giving amnesty to illegal aliens.
||They know he’s going to act soon, they want to maintain this crisis to condemn our community, a community without rights for our kids at this moment, our DREAMers, and for millions of others that the president has said he wants to help. That’s what they want. They want to punish our community, and that punishment will be met with an electoral punishment. Be assured that we are not going to forget the mistreatment our community has received.||”|
