    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...

    Power Line ^ | 9/11/17
    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...

    In response to President Trump's decision to end DACA last week, Democrat Congressman Luis Gutierrez (went after) Chief of Staff General John Kelly by calling him a liar and a "disgrace" to his uniform. “General Kelly, when he was the head of Homeland Security, lied straight to the faces of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus about preventing the mass deportation of DREAMers. 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...

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.

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) got handcuffed in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Chicago today after arriving with a list of demands and staging a sit-in. One of the things the congressman was protesting was a series of tweets issued by ICE last week warning that those covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program weren't necessarily safe from removal. "DACA is not a protected legal status, but active DACA recipients are typically a lower level of enforcement priority," ICE tweeted. "Deferred action may be revoked anytime especially when someone commits a crime or poses a national security...

When the Illinois representative did not get the answers he wanted, however, he decided to stay. “They were asking about specific cases and about the general conduct of ICE and deportations,” said Doug Rivlin, Gutierrez's director of communications, The Hill reports. “The congressman has decided that he did not get the answers he was looking for from the ICE...

    Influential House Members Planning Immigration Push in 2017 Jon Reid October 13, 2016 Two influential House Democrats are planning another shot at immigration reform next year, regardless of who controls the House. Veteran Reps. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) and Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) have already held “preliminary discussions” about crafting draft legislation after the election, which they hope will serve as the starting point for a bipartisan overhaul of immigration laws in 2017, according to a senior Democratic aide. While immigration reform proved too difficult to accomplish under the Obama administration, Gutiérrez thinks it is doable in the next Congress, particularly if...

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D., Ill.) has paid his wife and daughters hundreds of thousands of dollars from his campaign’s coffer since 2010, according to campaign finance data. Gutierrez, who was first elected to Congress in 1993, brought his wife, Soraida Gutierrez, onto his campaign’s payroll six years ago to act as his office manager, treasurer, and fundraiser. Soraida Gutierrez was a registered lobbyist in the state of Illinois from 2003 to 2009 before joining Gutierrez for Congress. She has since raked in more than $300,000 for her work on behalf of the committee while being the top recipient of campaign...

    He's not expecting a vote, though. Many undocumented immigrants who pay taxes would be able to access Obamacare under a long-shot bill introduced Wednesday by Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.). The Affordable Care Act currently limits access to its exchanges and subsidies to those "lawfully present." That means the approximately 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are not eligible for Obamacare, nor can they shop on the exchanges if their employer does not provide them with coverage. Gutiérrez's bill would open the exchanges and extend the subsidies to undocumented immigrants who provide proof of state residency and tax filings. It...
