Skip to comments.Republican Senator Lobbied for Mexican Foreign Workers on Friendís Behalf
Posted on 08/23/2017 8:03:33 AM PDT by Cheerio
Sen. John Boozman (R-AK) lobbied for Mexican foreign workers on a friends behalf, according to a report disclosing emails from one of Boozmans staffers obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Institute through an open records request.
The report includes emails from Rebecca Caldwell, a staffer for Boozmans office, to the U.S. consulate in Monterrey, Mexico, asking for 80 farm hands to work on an Arkansas farm.
Caldwell wrote in an email May 28, 2015, that she is reaching out to the consulate on behalf of my constituent Doug Gillam of Gillam Farms of Arkansas, INC.
The senator has asked that I reach out to you regarding this issue as he is personal friends with [redacted], Caldwell added.
Boozmans office declined to comment or give the identity of the personal friend referenced in the email.
Gillam does, however, own the farm with his brother Jeremy Gillam, who is the Speaker of the Arkansas House of Representatives.

Boozman is actually the senior senator from Arkansas (AR), not Alaska (AK). Some of Breitbart’s contributors are a bit challenged in terms of basic knowledge of the world and cultural literacy.

One more for the list.

So they couldn’t find 80 Mexicans, illegal or otherwise, HERE?

The democrats/unions would like to kill the temporary visas like H2A and H2B, because it is hard to organize temporary workers.
Dems/unions prefer permanent visas
Well, we sure do have our work cut out for us. Next year we have an “opportunity” ( if the idiot voters buy a clue) to rid the Senate of The Three Useless Mormons ( Hatch, Heller, and Flake), plus The Tennessee Dwarf, Bob Corker. Don’t know enough about the rest (Fischer, Wicker, Barrasso and Cruz) to make a determination as to their “future.” I had thought Cruz should go, but he’s seemingly doing a marginally better job now. Wicker probably should go because, he’s from Mississippi, the state that put Thad Cochran back in office. It would have really been a plus to just have to concentrate on ridding the Senate of some of the 27 RATs that are up for re-election. If we don’t clean out the GOPe “outhouse,” there’s really not much reason to go after the RATs.
At what point do we admit that the R is synonymous with the D and that the citizenry is just being played by ALL these professional parasites?
That’s a big list. No wonder we cannot get anything done.
These lazy useless Republicans are slowly getting peeled like sour grapes If only they were smart enough to recognize the cause and effect that is happening to them - but nah never happened. They THINK they are untouchable.
The Senate has become our very own House of Lords...
The opening paragraph sez the aliens were wanted for a farm in AK. That’s Alaska. Then later on, it spells out a farm in Arkansas. Which is AR. To quote the famous Mayor Shinn, from the movie THE MUSIC MAN, in a lecture to his daughter, “You’d better mind your phraseology!”
I added one word to your excellent summary!
Excellent addition. I will use it in that form going forward.
Undocumented Democrats is a two edged weapon, against undocumented Democrats and undocumented Americans.
Both groups are deceitful lying criminals.
“The Senate has become our very own House of Lords...”
My favorite expression for those folks in D.C. is:

My biggest desire is that someday WE will force them to be subject to ALL the SAME LAWS we are !
Have they no Home Depots in Arkansas?
