Pro-Immigration Reform Activists Target GOP’ers with Kids in Town Hall Campaign

Over the weekend, the story of an 11-year-old girl cornering Rep. Scott Desjarlais (R-TN) at a town hall meeting and asking how she could avoid having her illegal immigrant father deported exploded online. The pro-GOP crowd cheered when Desjarlais responded that laws need to be obeyed, prompting a number of left-leaning organizations to promote that exchange as an example of the GOP’s heartlessness when it comes to immigration issues.

This time, the questioner asked a GOP Congressman whether or not he would adopt the children of illegal immigrants once they are deported.

I see propaganda all the time about how “gun violence” breaks up families. Why is the Ad Council not issuing similar propaganda about illigal immigrants?

With hypocritical democrats It's always for the chi'rens.....

They don't hesitate to climb over the bodies of 60 million dead babies to proclaim their concern for children.
