On the most recent leg of his national executive amnesty tour, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) suggested that Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) should start “looking at his own family” before opposing President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty.
Abbott’s wife, who is of Hispanic descent, is the state’s first Latina First Lady.
“Let me just suggest to the governor of the state we are coming, we are signing people up for the executive action. Millions of families, and he should turn around looking at his own family and ask what will he like the government to do for them,” Gutierrez told MyFoxHouston after his Sunday visit to the Lindale Assembly of God Church in Texas on his executive amnesty tour.
Texas is leading a coalition of states (26 states have joined the lawsuit) challenging Obama’s executive action in federal court. Though Pro-amnesty advocates are preparing for the worst, Gutierrez is attempting to inform millions of illegal immigrants about how to apply for and receive Obama’s executive amnesty. Gutierrez believes that it will be tougher to overturn Obama’s executive amnesty if millions of illegal immigrants receive temporary amnesty and work permits.
