During his recent commencement address at Cambridge College, Democratic congressman, Luis Gutierrezz, cried about the right-wing news coverage illegal immigrants and Muslim refugees.
“Breitbart and Fox News didn’t invent their opinions on Mexicans and Central Americans or Muslims,” he said one day after the London Bridge attacks. “They’re just recycling them.”
He told the graduating students and guests, “I say lift the Muslim ban and tell the Supreme Court to say it’s unconstitutional and un-American.”
Gutierrez described President Donald Trump as an “unqualified game show host” and insisted he saw “in our country great hope and great enthusiasm for resistance against Trump’s America and what it stands for.”
After the terror attacks on the London Bridge, the president said we need a “Travel Ban” as an “extra level of safety” and that “we must stop being politically correct” or “it will only get worse.”
“We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!” Trump tweeted. “We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.”
But Gutierrez said, “wrong about the Irish Catholics that fled Ireland” and they are “wrong about the Syrian refugee Muslims that come to America seeking a place of refuge.”
“I ask you to never forget as they try to roll back voting rights and civil rights that people were murdered, churches were bombed, people were lynched, they were beaten and brutalized so we can have these voting rights and civil rights,” he said.
