In a quip that certainly helps explain the Democratic Party’s dogged support for illegal immigrants, a candidate for governor of the state of Georgia included those who are “undocumented” as part of the fabled “blue wave” coming in November.
Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams said as much last week at a campaign rally with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
“But the thing of it is, the blue wave is African-American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian Pacific Islander,” Abrams told the crowd. “It is disabled. It is differently abled. It is LGBTQ. It is law enforcement. It is veterans.”
And just when you thought she had covered every possible variation of the party’s base, she then included those who are in the country illegally.
“It is made up of those who are told they are not worthy of being here,” Abrams said. “It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented.”
The crowd was eating up the described diversity of the coming “blue wave” the left is counting on to sweep Democrats into office — even if it does work against their best interests to encourage illegal immigration.
“Well, if you’re undocumented you’re not supposed to be able to vote,” Fox News’ Ed Henry noted.
Abrams’ opponent, Republican nominee Brian Kemp told “Fox & Friends” on Monday that legal residents in the state should be able to decide who their governor will be.
“I think hard-working Georgians should decide who their governor is,” Kemp said. “Not people here illegally like my opponent wants.”
The Democrat took to Twitter after the fact to essentially move the goal post, saying the “Blue Wave isn’t just about voting.”
In a spin on American values, Abrams talked about a collective America.
“It’s about a new era of American values – a day and age in which we value our families, our communities, and those who work for the American Dream. The Blue Wave is one of community building and solidarity,” she tweeted.
The Blue Wave isn’t just about voting. It’s about a new era of American values – a day and age in which we value our families, our communities, and those who work for the American Dream. The Blue Wave is one of community building and solidarity.
