Why would El Gallito do this to us? Are we not in enough strain already with nuclear war threats and the bad flu season we’re having this year. I wish Rep. Luis Gutierrez would think about us little people who need him to be the MLK of the Latino community in Congress. It is a matter of human resources. Gutierrez should not abandon his followers in the Democratic party just because he’s having disagreements with how President Trump leads this country over immigration matters. El Gallito, say it ain’t so!
Rep. Luis Gutierrez, keep your eyes on the road.
The rearview mirror is meant for checking your back, not to be the prime focal point. In the same way, it helps to stay current on where we’re heading. DACA was intended by President Obama expressly as a temporary measure, not a law in and of itself. “Don’t let a disagreement on a single issue be a deal breaker on every issue,” President Obama November 20, 2014 (@ 8:18 – 32). DACA was to give an opportunity for Congress to create a law. President Trump has designated an 1/8 of his first term for Congress to come up with a solution. This is not a good time to throw in your hat and say it is over.
Hang on there cowboy. That Bull is not done riding yet!! Luis’ grassroots connection to the people makes his Fighting Chicken, a breath of fresh air to the movers and shakers of the DNC! His zest for jumping into the ring could inspire other Democrats to come to the table too. What good is a debate when there is only one side to the argument? You have made no power by dropping out. Not even chickens would be so preoccupied with other business they would not want to peak around, at least a bit!
