    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) described the Trump administration’s immigration policy as “cruel” and “inhumane,” and added President Donald Trump’s rhetoric was used to “gin up” his political base ahead of the midterms. Gutiérrez said, “The president uses words like breeders, sanctuary cities are protecting breeders. He said yesterday they have come to infest. These with the kinds of words that the Republican Party and this president uses. He doesn’t use it as immigration policy or border control policy. He uses it as an issue to energize his political base for the midterm elections. It’s wrong...

    Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) on Sunday accused President Trump of using immigration rhetoric and "cruel, inhumane policies" to energize his political base. "The president uses words like 'they're breeders,' 'in sanctuary cities they're protecting breeders.' He said yesterday 'they come to infest.' I mean, these are the kinds of words that the Republican Party and this president uses," Gutiérrez said on ABC's "This Week."

    The House Committee on Ethics released a series of reports on Friday and ordered Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D., Ill.) to repay the government after allegations he misused federal funds. Gutiérrez has been told to repay $9,700 to the Treasury as a result of what was called "inadvertent" use of funds provided to his office for its operation, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The Illinois Democrat had hired former chief of staff Doug Scofield to advise his office, resulting in questions as to whether Scofield was acting as official staff. "The OCE Board recommends that the Committee on Ethics further review the...
  • Luis Gutierrez: If Trump ‘Is Not a Racist, I Don’t Know Who Is’

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) told National Public Radio (NPR) on Monday that President Donald Trump is a “racist” because of his immigration agenda. “If this president is not a racist, then I don’t know who is,” Gutierrez said. The Illinois Democrat insisted that Trump’s immigration agenda is really about limiting non-whites from entering the United States, falsely accusing Trump of only wanting “people from Norway” instead of immigrants from Africa, Latin America, and Asia. According to the Washington Post report about Trump’s “shithole countries” remarks, Trump reportedly “also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because...

    They scowled as President Trump touted soaring jobs numbers, sat stone-faced when he honored veterans, and one even walked out after becoming triggered by a patriotic chant. Democrats at President Trump's first State of the Union, after a year of partisan rancor, showed they were in no mood to accept his call for bipartisanship. "Why are @TheDemocrats not applauding job growth, higher wages and the drop in Latino and African-American unemployment?" pollster Frank Luntz asked in a tweet. "I thought economic success is good for everyone regardless of party." Rep. Luis Gutierrez walked out after chants of "USA, USA!" erupted...

    Mystery solved? After Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez abruptly announced his retirement Tuesday and endorsed a successor without revealing his future political plans, Fox News has learned the outspoken immigration advocate will be testing the waters for a potential 2020 presidential bid. Few national political figures could be more ideologically opposed on the issue of immigration than President Trump – who wants a border wall and has fought to suspend immigration from some Muslim-majority countries – and Gutierrez, who blasted even the Obama administration over legal deportations.

    Gutierrez told the Chicago Sun-Times on Tuesday that he and his wife bought a home for more than $1 million last year in Dorado, on the northern coast of Puerto Rico. He said they’re renting out the property now but it will “probably be our house that we live in” at some point. “I’m going to be active in the politics of reconstruction of my island, because I love that island,” he said, noting that he had a plane ticket to leave Sunday for his fourth trip to Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria devastated the tropical U.S. commonwealth in September....

    ---SNIP--- So the GOP House Members were officially whipped on Monday June 9th. The results confirmed what John Boehner and Paul Ryan already knew – They had enough votes to pass it. On Tuesday June 10th Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor (Majority Leader) and Kevin McCarthy (Majority Whip) had lunch together discussing timing the vote Thursday night or Friday Morning. However, later that same night the results from the 2014 Virginia primary showed an unknown conservative outsider, Dave Brat, had defeated (primaried) Eric Cantor. At 7:00pm Tuesday night the first word went out that Cantor had lost. Boehner, McCarthy and Cantor...

    NBC 5 has learned Congressman Luis Gutierrez will announce Tuesday he is not running for re-election after 24 years on Capitol Hill, sources say. Guitterez telephoned key democratic leaders late this afternoon to let them know of his plans. Calls to Guitterez tonight have not been returned. Already printing petitions Monday night-- to begin the process of getting signatures before next Monday's deadline -- is Cook County Commissioner Jesus Chuy Garcia. Ald. Carlos Ramirez Rosa is considering a congressional race. This will also leave an opening on the county board should Garcia opt for Guitterez's seat.

    We barely had time to forget Rep. Luis Gutierrez's (D-IL) shameful attack on Chief of Staff John Kelly's military service, before he stuck his foot in his mouth again. President Trump released his new immigration demands Sunday night, informing Congress that any new deal must include funding for a border wall. In exchange for an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the president wants to see a a crackdown on sanctuary cities, thousands more Customs and Border Patrol agents and progress on the border wall. As expected, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi decried the...

    Sept. 20 (UPI) -- Three Democratic congressmen were arrested outside Trump Tower in New York City while protesting for immigrants' rights. Reps. Raúl M. Grijalva of Arizona, Luis V. Gutierrez of Illinois and Adriano Espaillat of New York were arrested on civil disobedience charges. Melissa Mark-Viverito, speaker of the New York City Council, and six other protesters were also arrested. "I stood in front of Trump Tower today with a whole lot of DREAMers, immigrants and Americans to say enough to Trump and his criminalization of our immigrant communities," Grijalva wrote on his official Facebook page. In a statement, Guttierez...

    I wrote here about how Rep. Luis Gutierrez called John Kelly, President Trump’s chief of staff, a “hypocrite” and a “disgrace to the uniform he used to wear.” Kelly served in the military for more than 40 years. Gutierrez never served a day. However, he became hysterical over Trump’s decision to phase out the DACA program, while giving Congress the opportunity to implement its protections. Gutierrez claimed that Trump’s action violated a promise Kelly had made. As I demonstrated here, though, there is no inconsistency between what Gutierrez says Kelly promised — no mass deportations of “dreamers” — and the...

Now as Chief of Staff, this former general is executing the plan to take away their lifeline and taking steps to criminalize young people who live and work here legally," Gutierrez released in a a href="https://gutierrez.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/guti-rrez-daca-announcement-implications-approps-fights">(statement).

    EXCLUSIVE: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired back at a prominent House Democrat who called him a “disgrace to the uniform,” in the Gold Star father and retired Marine Corps general’s first public response to the personal attack on his service. Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez had leveled the criticism at Kelly over his support of President Trump’s decision to end a controversial program that shielded young illegal immigrants from deportation. In an email to Fox News late Sunday, Kelly responded by saying Congress did “nothing” to help so-called Dreamers when they had the chance. “As far as the...

    Luis Gutierrez. I have never liked this guy, but now I really despise him. He was born in Chicago but is largely anti-American. In the past he was a member of the Marxist-Leninist Puerto Rican Socialist Party . Here is what one of his contemporaries said about him: At a West Town gym Puerto Rican aerobics instructor Lisa Marrero told a neighbor and me how she disliked Congressman Gutierrez, whom she associated with “those people who placed bombs.” Lisa commented: “I went to Northeastern [Illinois University] with him. He was friends with all those people who placed bombs and are in jail....

    FULL TITLE: Gutierrez Unhinged After DACA Repeal: WH Chief Kelly ‘Disgrace to Uniform,’ Trump Endorsing ‘White Supremacy’ Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), one of the most vocal pro-amnesty voices in Congress, claimed on Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s administration is essentially endorsing “white supremacy” by winding down former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive amnesty. He also blasted White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as a “hypocrite who is a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear” who “should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists.” “This Administration is on...

    After President Trump said Friday he is “100 percent” willing to testify under oath about the events that led to firing James Comey as FBI director, a House Democrat wants to take him up on it. Within hours of Trump’s statement at a press conference in the White House Rose Garden, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) called on House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) to invite the president before their panel.
