During election season entrenched establishment politicians like, no love, to lie about their records and views on matters of national importance so that they can garner votes to return to Washington and continue aiding and abiding the status quo.
Take for instance Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger, one of the biggest supporters of amnesty in the House outside of fellow Illinois congressman Luis Gutierrez, who has resorted to lying about his stance on immigration and amnesty on his campaign website; this despite the fact that congressman Kinzinger faces absolutely no opponent on the November 8th ballot.
Kinzinger says on his website:
While I believe we must make reforms to our broken immigration system, we must first ensure that our borders are secure or we risk returning to the status quo. It is vital we update our antiquated immigration system to better suit the needs of a 21st century economy, but we must not reward those who have come here illegally. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to ensure we develop immigration policies that secure and strengthen America and provide fairness to those who attempt to enter our country legally.
Congressman Kinzinger’s own amnesty supporting past says something very differently.
Earlier this year Kinzinger joined with a handful of other amnesty supporting Republicans and the majority of the Democrats to get a provision passed that paves the way for illegal immigrants to serve in the United States military. Kinzinger is a Major in the Air Guard and is an Iraq veteran.
When a previous attempt to let illegals into the military failed Kinzinger said during a radio interview:
I think this amendment to strip this frankly came from a very ugly place in our party that won’t even look at the idea of somebody that’s 3 or 4 years old when they were brought here, looking at the opportunity to say I want to earn an opportunity to be a citizen of the United States of America….There is nothing more Republican in my mind than people earning an opportunity to have a shot at the American dream.
If we as Republicans can’t get behind the idea of studying the merits of earning citizenship in this country by serving in the military than that frankly frightens me and I don’t know what we can stand for that is more Republican than that.
Before that on the issue of President Obama’s executive amnesties for certain, large, groups of illegal immigrants Kinzinger said stopping DACA, Obama’s first executive amnesty, sent “the wrong message to send for our party.”. In the months leading up to President Obama’s 2012 edict Kinzinger said that taking preemptive steps to stop President Obama from issuing any amnesty via executive order, “would have made our already broken immigration system more confusing and inefficient.”
Yeah how exactly was stopping a lawless President from committing an unconstitutional usurpation of the power of Congress going to make the illegal immigration problem worse?
As a Chamber of Commerce bankrolled member of Congress that is totally and completely loyal to GOPe leadership congressman Kinzinger should drop the pretend to be an immigration hawk act, it’s old and really transparent.
Just admit you are going back to Washington for another term to make sure illegal immigrants continue to get more benefits, continue to get to stay, that the border remains a political hot potato playing second fiddle to “comprehensive immigration reform”, and the Chamber of Commerce and other big corporations continue to have access to keep foreign labor, you’d at least be honest saying that.
