DCCC Launches One-Stop Shop for House Republicans’ Immigration Quotes
With the immigration debate moving to the House, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is launching a one-stop resource so members of the public can peruse House Republicans’ positions on immigration – in their own words.
RepublicansInTheirOwnWords.com features public statements from Republicans who have taken an array of positions on immigration, whether it’s vehemently opposing reform, waffling on the issue or denigrating immigrants with incendiary and hateful rhetoric.
“Some of these Republicans have made comments that are so ugly, you wouldn’t let your children on this site. Some of these Republicans are attempting deathbed conversions or shifting their positions so quickly that you’ll get whiplash. And some of these Republicans are attempting the Sisyphean task of convincing their colleagues to embrace truly comprehensive reform,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Whatever they’ve said, it’s archived and publicly available.”
The site will be updated regularly, and the DCCC also invites the public to submit Republicans’ statements to RepublicansInTheirOwnWords@dccc.org.
