Where’s Jeff Flake and why does he want to help “turn more red states blue?”

Although Arizona Congressman Jeff Flake has been a vigorous supporter of Democrat Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez when partnering with him on immigration reform issues in Washington, he is mysteriously MIA from the list of those attending the Phoenix rally for legalization of the nation’s millions of illegal aliens today. Democrat Congressmen Raul Grijalva and Ed Pastor will be on hand. If you’d like to join the 4:00 PM meeting, the information is here.

Gutierrez is on a 20-city amnesty tour to drum up support for forcing the Obama administration to prioritize legalization of those in our country illegally.

In his home district, Flake talks up his opposition to “earmarks” — those outrageous spending packages we all disdain. Yet 3,000 miles away, in the halls of congress, Flake works on behalf of the costliest of measures — pushing the “Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy Act” or STRIVE Act, granting tuition and other benefits, while extending amnesty for illegal aliens living in our country. STRIVE and the nightmarish DREAM Act were applauded by La Raza.

The GovTrackUS website lists Luis Gutierrez as a “Lonely Far Left” Democrat.

Read this stunning article titled The Numbers Are On Our Side written by Gutierrez in Progress Illinois. In this excerpt he specifically mentions Jeff Flake:

“During the 110th Congress, I introduced the only bipartisan, comprehensive immigration bill with my colleague, Congressman Jeff Flake, from Arizona. Our bill would create a system that allows undocumented immigrants to come out of the shadows and work here legally and safely and humanely…It creates a system predicated on family values by developing laws that keep families strong and, most importantly, keeps husbands and wives, parents and children together.

Passing sensible immigration reform is good policy and good politics. So how do we win? We need more engaged progressives who are willing to stand up for what is right. We need labor unions to keep leading the charge. We need grassroots efforts to register immigrants to vote and to turn them out on Election Day. In the end, democracy is about numbers. The side that can count the highest wins. And the numbers are on our side. Hard-working immigrants are turning red states blue.

They are electing leaders from school boards to the U.S. Senate. They are standing up and marching and speaking with one voice. Immigrants will remember on Election Day who heard them, respected them, and fought for them,” says Jeff Flakes’ friend and co-sponsor of amnesty bills, Rep. Luis Gutierrez.

    I notice Gutierrez calls liberals “Progressives.” the newly disguising word. Right after he says Flake is onboard as a co-sponsor, he says “We need more engaged progressives who are willing to stand up for what is right. We need labor unions to keep leading the charge. We need grassroots efforts to register immigrants to vote and to turn them out on Election Day. In the end, democracy is about numbers. The side that can count the highest wins. And the numbers are on our side. Hard-working immigrants are turning red states blue.”

    That exposé from his chum must delight Flake on his home turf.

    All I can say is this information is extremely disappointing. I hope some conservatives from the district show up at this rally today and ask Rep. Gutierrez about the amnesty co-sponsorship. No doubt the press will be there. We deserve some answers.

  3. Chuck says:

    Hey, how about keeping the red states red and bringing some more in to join them? What kind of alliance is this for our Republican Congressman to make?

  4. Terry G. says:

    I have never attended such a rally in my life. After reading this article I am boiling mad at my so-called “conservative” representation in Congress. Count me in.

  5. Ron D says:

    Bull’s-eye Seeing Red AZ! Flake passes himself off as a champion for fiscal conservatives. What has he ever actually accomplished to eliminate an earmark or to save taxpayers a dime? He, himself, does not take pork to Arizona–that’s it!! And if Flake gets his way with the STRIVE and/or DREAM Act he will have cost us billions more than he ever thought of saving us. As Gutierrez points out…Flake is the most open borders “Republican” in Congress. I’m disgusted with Flake’s hypocrisy.

    Here is the illegal alien’s best friend in the Republican Party, Jeff Flake. He’s quick to give away benefits at taxpayer expense. When has he ever introduced a bill or lifted a finger to secure the border? Never! Flake is for illegal immigration only! That’s your taxpayer hero. “More hard earned American wages should be spent to benefit illegals.” DUMP FLAKE!

  7. Jana Simmons says:

    Quite frankly,after reading what Rep. Luis Gutierrez wrote in his article, I feel scammed. I would very much like an explanation from Congressman Flake.

  8. Hagar says:

    Flake is considered a joke back in Congress. Check out how many votes end up with only two on one side, his and Ron Paul’s. Although I campaigned for him his first two terms, I jumped off his bandwagon when he started cozying up to Fidel Castro. Also, in addition to his open borders plan, don’t forget how he reneged on his promise to only serve three terms. What a liar!

  9. Clementine says:

    I sure do remember him making that term limits pledge. His trustworthy meter falls to zero with those who are on to him. We need a reputable candidate who actually represents the district — not a Flake! His alliance with a liberal democrat sure doesn’t get much play here at home. Thanks for the info.

    I stopped at the Circle K this morning to pick up an Arizona Republic, expecting to see some coverage of the demonstrators who showed up to protest Rep. Luis Gutierrez’s national amnesty tour Phoenix stop. There were about 50 of us, including Anna Gaines chairman of American Citizens United — a border security advocacy group. Channel 3 and Channel 10 were both there covering the protest. In fact, I watched Channel 10 use this as their lead on last night’s news.

    But NOT A SINGLE WORD of this event was reported in the Daily Disappointment. It doesn’t play to their agenda of open borders and amnesty for illegals.
