Rep. John Carter (R-TX) is recognized as one of the more conservative congressmen in the House. Yet, he has decided to be a member of his body’s ‘Gang of 8’ in the immigration debate. In this capacity, he has decided to team up with Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) to push for a
comprehensive immigration reform amnesty for illegal aliens. Aside from exercising extremely poor judgment in getting behind such an effort, Carter has disgracefully aligned with one of 70 members of the 111th Congress who was a registered member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) caucus in Gutierrez.
Both Muslims in the U.S. Congress – Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) – were part of that group of 70.
Again, immigration is not solely about Mexican nationals. It is also about stealth jihadists.
If you can stomach it, here is an interview with Carter and Gutierrez conducted by Texas Tribune’s Evan Smith:
So why is Carter doing this? Why do otherwise principled men do blatantly unprincipled things?
Yes, Bruce Springsteen is as liberal as it gets but this song explains the Petraeus effect pretty well.
