Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez, an illegal-immigration activist, proved he can’t handle the truth as he became completely unhinged when confronted with his own words by an immigration expert.
Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday about the dangers of “sanctuary city” policies.
When Gutierrez took the floor he accused Vaughan of not being informed and said she was “exploiting” the murder of Kate Steinle, the young woman who was murdered by a 5-time-deported illegal criminal, to make a buck.
Vaughan had angered Gutierrez by repeatedly referencing a remark he had made about Steinle’s murder. Gutierrez had told Telemundo during an interview on July 16 (emphasis added), “Every time a little thing like this happens, [Republicans] use the most extreme example to say it must be eliminated.”
Gutierrez’s testimony offered the Steinle family a few platitudes about his “sympathies,” but he was only able to keep it together for a short while.
“Apparently people have decided to besmirch people’s reputation, and take their words, and exploit the death of a beautiful young American woman… But don’t exploit a young woman’s death in order to receive a paycheck to put food on your table,” Gutierrez said.
“You should find a more decent and practical way about going about your living,” he shouted.
What an ironic thing to hear from the mouth of a career politician from Illinois.
