On Wednesday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) vowed to leave no illegal immigrant behind in pursuing amnesty.
Gutierrez made his remarks at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Conference a day before President Barack addresses the Conference on Thursday evening. Gutierrez urged Obama to give amnesty to illegal immigrants who have been in the country for at least 10 years and to include more DREAMers so that he does the “greatest good for the greatest number of people.” He then said declared, “We will leave no one behind.”
As he has said before, Gutierrez said Obama’s temporary amnesty is merely a “down payment” to the Latino community. Gutierrez has also said that when the White House asked for forbearance for delaying his planned executive amnesty, he demanded “interest” in the form of a broader executive amnesty in the fall.
