I just watched a video interview with Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) where he is arguing for “comprehensive immigration reform”. During this interview (4min 50sec mark) he makes a long statement about the “need” for immigrants. His statement essentially boils down to this:
“We need immigrants to pick our lettuce”
I’m sorry, say what? If that had been your average white guy, or god forbid, a conservative, making that statement, the liberal media would be spending weeks crucifying him. But since Gutierrez is Hispanic, and a Democrat, he gets a free pass.
