    Luis Gutierrez: Immigration reform prospects dead

    The hope for immigration reform this year has been sucked out of perhaps the most optimistic advocate on Capitol Hill: Rep. Luis Gutierrez.

    In a fiery floor speech Wednesday, the Illinois Democrat – the leading congressional advocate on the issue – declared the prospects for reform dead this year and said the only option left is for President Barack Obama to take unilateral action to stem deportations.

    Using an analogy from the World Cup, Gutierrez said he had already given a “yellow card” to the House GOP as a warning that if they continued to drag their feet on immigration reform, Obama would move on deportation relief on his own.

    Gutierrez had called on Republicans to produce immigration reform legislation before the Fourth of July recess, which begins next week. Other Democrats on Capitol Hill have pressured the GOP to move on immigration bills by August.

    “I gave you the warning three months ago, and now I have no other choice,” he said. “You’re done. You’re done. Leave the field, too many flagrant offenses and unfair attacks. You’re out. Hit the showers. It’s the red card.”

    “Your chance to play a role in how immigration and deportation policies are carried out this year are over,” he declared. “Having given ample time to craft legislation, you failed.”

    The already-dim chances for immigration reform on Capitol Hill were largely darkened with the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in his primary race earlier this month, when challenger Dave Brat hammered the powerful House Republican over his support of incremental reform measures.

    And the current influx of unaccompanied minors through the southwestern U.S. border has further complicated the prospects, as Republicans point to Obama’s immigrant policies as a cause for the humanitarian crisis.

    At a breakfast sponsored by the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, two leading senators sounded some hope that immigration reform could still happen this year – though they acknowledged that recent developments such as Cantor’s surprising loss don’t help their cause.

    “I can’t tell you … that we have a great shot at it, but I know the consequences of failure, which will motivate me to continue to try no matter what,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), pointing to the need for his party to make inroads with Latino voters. “You can do the demographics, I can show you the math of the rise and influence of the Hispanic voter not only across the southwest but in other parts of the country as well.”

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) also noted the political dynamics inside the GOP that he said made him hopeful that House Republicans would move on immigration reform this year.

    “They know they have to do it now,” Schumer said of Republican leaders. “I think if they don’t do it, we will win the presidency, the House and the Senate. And then we’ll do it. So they know that.”

    Luis Gutierrez, Socialist Immigration Puppet

    Submitted by Trevor on July 28, 2011

    This week Illinois congressman , Rep. Luis Gutierrez was arrested for staging a sit-in in front of the White House, to demand that President Barack Obama stop the deportations of undocumented immigrants.

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez

    Without doubt Gutierrez is the US Congress’ leading activist for the open immigration movement – especially Latino immigration.

    The Communist Party USA, Democratic Socialists of America and other Marxist groups, have long campaigned against barriers to Latino immigration, for a number of reasons.

    The left knows that Latinos lean heavily Democratic in their voting patterns. They also tend to be poor and undereducated, perfect fodder for Marxist agitators and Democrat vote manipulators.

    Its no surprise then that Luis Lutierrez is such a champion of the cause – he has spent his whole life working with the revolutionary left.

    Of Puerto Rican extraction, Gutierrez grew up in Chicago, where he became a leader of the Puerto Rican Socialist Party – a Marxist-Leninist, pro-Cuban organization.

    Luis Gutierrez worked in Chicago mayor Harold Washington’s administration from 1984 to 1985 as the administrative assistant for the mayor’s subcommittee on infrastructure.

    Washington’s far left electoral coalition included many members of the P.S.P. Luis Gutierrez who became an Alderman under Washington was able to secure government funds for the P.S.P. sponsored cultural center and for Party sponsored social services.

    It was Harold Washington’s socialist and communist stacked administration that first inspired the young Barack Obama to move to Chicago in 1985. It is no coincidence that the nation’s three top immigration “activists,” Obama, Gutierrez and Service Employees International Union Vice President Eliseo Medina, all came out of the Democratic Socialists of America/Communist Party USA led Chicago left.

    When Luis Gutierrez was elected to Congress in 1992, Chicago D.S.A. regarded it as a “progressive” move:
    Progressive forces in Illinois made history November 3 by electing Carol Moseley Braun as the first African-American woman to the U.S. Senate.
    Chicago City Council member Luis Gutierrez was elected the first Latino to the U.S. House of Representatives from the midwest.

    When Luis Gutierrez ran for Congress in 1998, D.S.A. did not officially endorse any candidates but he was “recommended” as worthy of a vote by Chicago D.S.A. - citing his involvement in the D.S.A./Institute for Policy Studies initiated Congressional Progressive Caucus and Progressive_Challenge.

    Luis Gutierrez is a member of the Progressive Caucus, and a supporter of the Progressive Challenge.

    A Globalization From Below was a conference held May 29-31, 1998, in Chicago Illinois, organized by Chicago D.S.A.
    Invited speakers included Rev. Jesse Jackson and DSAers Dolores Huerta, Rep. Danny Davis, Jose LaLuz, and Stanley Gacek and Luis Gutierrez.

    In 2008, Jose Laluz would become a leader of Latinos for Obama, while Gutierrez would join DSAer Eliseo Medina on Obama’s Latino Advisory Council.

    On October 13, 2010, immigration activists from around the country gathered to join in a vigil and rally in front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC., where Congressman Gutierrez and other elected officials launched a new push for comprehensive immigration reform, building to the opening months of 2010. Their banners read “Reform Immigration FOR Families” and “Family Unity Cannot Wait.”

    More than 750 people traveled to Washington on buses from up and down the Eastern seaboard and as far away as Texas, Florida, Ohio, Minnesota, and Michigan. They spent Tuesday morning meeting with Congressional offices before being joined by thousands of people from the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area, who gathered on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol to listen to testimonies from families, veterans and children who face family disintegration because of immigration laws and deportation.

    Religious leaders from a diverse array of faith traditions around the country, some organized through “Familias Unidas,” added their voices.

    At the event Congressman Gutierrez outlined a set of principles for progressive immigration reform that needs to include a rational and humane approach to legalize the undocumented population, to protect workers’ rights, to allocate sufficient visas, to establish a smarter and more humane border enforcement policy, to promote integration of immigrant communities, to include the DREAM Act and AgJOBS bills, to protect rights guaranteed by the Constitution, and to keep families together.

    The lawmakers who joined Rep. Gutierrez on stage and addressed the gathering included Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY),Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus Chairman Rep. Michael Honda (D-CA), Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairs Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ) and Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), Congressional Black Caucus Member, Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Democratic Caucus Vice Chair Xavier Becerra (D-CA), Jared Polis (D-CO), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Michael Quigley (D-IL), and Delegate Gregorio Sablan (Northern Mariana Islands).

    All of the above are on the far left. Several have ties to the Communist Party and/or D.S.A.

    The pressure for open borders to the South is all coming from the US’ hard left.

    Luis Gutierrez is no doubt sincere in his views, but he is merely a puppet for some of the most anti-American organizations in the country.

    I do not trust Gutierrez, so when he says something is dead, it it worrisome. Sorry, tell lies, even once, and it is hard to judge when truth is uttered.

    Immigration reform is not dead, it's still out there being pushed hard every day by the reptiles who want to end the sovereignty of the United States and suck the life and breath out of the only nation on this planet that can and would stop the New World Order and One World Government, the ultimate goals of this remnant of the reptilian cholera.
