Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) believes that “too many” House Republicans are “appalling” bigots.
In a Wednesday interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos, Wasserman Schultz argued for a pathway to citizenship for all of the country’s illegal immigrants. Echoing Maryland Democrat Gov. Martin O’Malley, she also said that illegal immigrant juveniles whom America deports are being sent back to “certain death.” She called Republicans “outrageous” and “irresponsible” on immigration before taking it a step further.
“The Republicans have not only played politics with this for too long, but I think deeply embedded in too many of the Republicans in the House of Representatives is a thread of bigotry that is appalling,” Wasserman Schultz said.
Ramos did not challenge her inflammatory words; he simply changed the subject by saying, “I’m just going to leave immigration to the side.”
