Gutierrez Speech Puts A Spotlight On Clinton’s Many Immigration Reform Flip-Flops



In his address to the Democratic National Convention, Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) toed the line and praised Hillary Clinton. Yet, the Illinois Congressman was not always that laudatory about Clinton’s record. Last year, America Rising put out a video highlighting a number of Gutierrez’s critiques of Clinton. On immigration reform, Clinton now has many positions completely opposed to what she once believed.

In fact, a Clinton aide even admitted that Gutierrez’s support of Clinton came about because of her willingness to adopt more progressive positions:

“A Clinton aide attributed the congressman’s support to the campaign’s focus on immigration since, in the spring, when Clinton rolled out a more progressive stance on the issue.”

As Gutierrez praises Clinton, just remember that Clinton record is simply a reflection of her willingness to say or do anything to get elected president.
