Jeff Flake’s radically liberal congressional buddy Rep. Luis Gutierrez is currently on a national 20-city tour to rally support for another attempt at gifting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the United States. It wasn’t all that long ago Gutierrez was complementing Flake for helping him to “turn more red states blue.” But now Flake is a senatorial candidate and is showing a more circumspect face.
So this time, in view of polling showing overwhelming support of Arizona’s SB 1070, the Chicago Democrat Gutierrez is bypassing Congress and taking his message straight to the White House.
Last year Gutierrez wrote that our Arizona law making it a crime to be in the state illegally “calls for congressional action.”
Barack Obama is reportedly holding meetings to determine if illegal aliens can be granted amnesty by Executive Order as he continues pushing his tyrannical “democratic socialism” in an overt violation of the Constitution.
On the heels of the groundswell of support after the killing of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, Obama’s own infallibility levels will persuade him the time is right to move on amnesty by writ of an Executive Order. Such actions will ensure the 2012 election as we witness this willful abuse and exploitation of power over the American people.
At a rally this past weekend in Chicago, Gutierrez told a crowd that Obama should use the executive power of the presidency to stop deportations and that he (Gutierrez) has “nothing but the greatest desire to be helpful, and to join arms with [Obama], and march across the country toward his re-election.”
Readers of this blog will remember the last time Luis Gutierrez took his amnesty sideshow on a 17-city national tour to pressure the Obama administration to prioritize legalization of those in our country illegally. Flake was nowhere to be seen in 2009 when it stopped off in Phoenix. He has always presented a different face to his East Valley constituents, talking endlessly about his abhorrence of ‘earmarks,’ while never acknowledging his partnership with liberal Gutierrez on amnesty issues.
National Journal’s Sean Sullivan cuts right to the chase in this piece on Arizona’s upcoming U.S. Senate race, taking Jeff Flake to task for his duplicity evidenced in this ambitiously revealing statement: “In the past I have supported a broad approach to immigration reform — increased border security coupled with a temporary worker program. I no longer do.” Sullivan termed Jeff Flake’s illegal immigration position switcheroo as a “turnaround as swift as it is predictable,” as he emulated his mentor, John McCain.
The amnesty proponents at the Arizona Republic were so dismayed they mocked Flake as a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman.”
He is currently running unopposed for the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacant when Jon Kyl retires. Beware Arizona. This will be viewed as a mandate. We can do better.
