AWFUL. Democrat Gutierrez Calls Trump Immigration Plan an Extension of His “White Supremacist Agenda”
President Donald J. Trump sent a letter to Congress outlining the findings of a detailed review of immigration policy and principles on Sunday night.
On Monday far left Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez called the plan an extension of President Trump’s “white supremacist agenda.”
Because Democrats believe borders are racist.
And Democrats also HATE white voters.

Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) called President Donald Trump’s new proposals for legalizing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program “an extension of the white supremacist agenda” on Sunday.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Gutiérrez said, “I warned Democrats not to negotiate.” He said that Trump “has never wavered from his xenophobic positions” and added that “what they want to do is criminalize and delegitimize Latinos.”
The proposals, obtained Sunday evening by Politico, are being called “hard-line” by mainstream media observers. Though none of them is framed as a veto threat, they represent conservative positions that skeptics of DACA have insisted ought to be part of any deal to provide legal status to those brought to the U.S. illegally.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) was arrested in August along with 30 other protesters outside of the White House during a DACA rally.
