Conservative Florida Congressman Allen West, an Army Lieutenant Colonel (ret.) with a distinguished record doesn’t collude with liberals on re-christened amnesty
PJ Media is reporting that Florida’s Republican Sen. Marco Rubio and liberal Democrat Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez have been engaged in a “fruitful conversation” regarding introduction of an alternative to what we have long termed the “nightmarish” DREAM Act.
But the plotters were larger than just this odd twosome. The duo was also deeply involved in dialogue on the topic of back-door amnesty with Democrats Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Rep. Charles Gonzalez of Texas.
According to the report, under Rubio’s version, certain illegal minors “would receive legal status, but not a special pathway to citizenship.” Gutierrez has derided that alternative as the “Stolen Dream Act,” but said he’s now willing to give Rubio a chance to see how the proposal comes together.’
“He asked me to give him a chance, and I’m going to wait,” Gutierrez said. “I asked him when did he think we could hear more, he said in a few weeks. Sounds great to me.”
No doubt it does.
Longtime readers of Seeing Red AZ will remember Luis Gutierrez as Jeff Flake’s comrade on exactly such issues. This blog has an entire category devoted to Jeff Flake’s preening arrogance, left-of-center positions, McCain-like flip-flops and liberal associates.
Prime among them is his close congressional ally Chicago’s “lonely far-left” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, who actually commends Flake for “helping him turn more red states blue“ in this article in Progress Illinois — hardly the trait Arizona Republicans are looking for in their next U.S. Senator.
After giving strenuous support to the La Raza-backed DREAM Act, slick trickster Jeff Flake found a way to be on both sides of the issue, which in its simplest form is a state-subsidized reward for lawbreaking.
Here the pro-amnesty Flake, now in campaign mode, changed his long-held, lenient-on-illegal-immigration position, vexing his cheerleaders at the pro-open-borders Arizona Republic. Flake’s politically expedient reversal on border policy exposes him as McCain‘s astute protégée, for which the stunned newspaper angrily slammed him as a mere “politician.”
As serious Vice Presidential considerations take form, Florida offers us a superb alternative to the much hyped Marco Rubio. U. S. Rep. Allen West is an actual conservative. Check out his bio. You’ll be impressed.
