It makes sense that a congressman from Chicago, Illinois would want to do everything humanly possible to cut down on the city’s gang problem. I’m not sure how he feels about gangbangers who are citizens, but Rep. Luis Gutierrez is certainly concerned about criminal alien gang members who could be removed if H.R. 3697, the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act, picks up more traction and becomes law:
his [Speaker Ryan’s] priority is feeding red meat to the anti-immigration wing of his party and satisfying them with a big helping of ‘let’s label Latino youth as machete-wielding menaces.’1
That sounds a little inflammatory even for Gutierrez, but when it comes to immigration he has a knack for that.
