Dem Lawmaker Warns GOP: Pass Immigration Or Bush Will Be ‘Last Republican President In American History’


Illinois Democratic lawmaker Luis Gutierrez wants to caution his Republican friends opposed to comprehensive immigration reform, declaring that if House Republicans don’t fall in line President Bush will go down as “last Republican president in American history.”

On Tuesday the congressman reached across party lines, taking to the House floor to generously deliver five minutes of sage advice to his political adversaries.

“The positions Republican candidates feel they must take to win over their base make them unelectable when they face the American people in the general election,” Gutierrez claimed. “Latino voters are repelled, and the loud but small contingent of immigration opponents have backed the Republican Party into a corner that they don’t have the courage to break out of.”

“So Mr. Speaker, I give you George W. Bush,” the congressman flourished, “the man who will go down in history as the last Republican president in American history . . . There is a demographic reality that will make Republicans a footnote in history — just like the Whigs and the No-Nothings — unless they do something to get the immigration issue off the table.”

But despite having a little over two weeks of legislative session remaining, Gutierrez exhorted his Republican colleagues not to give up home. “You still have time to change history!” he said selflessly.

This isn’t the first time Congressman Gutierrez has so freely provided his helpful input to his political adversaries. Last month he graciously warned Republicans that President Obama will bypass Congress to take “broader, bolder action” on immigration.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
