President to Grant Amnesty to Millions of Illegal Immigrants Before Elections?

Weeks ago, Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) accidentally slipped with information on why his party was pushing for amnesty for illegals. Essentially, his party is looking for an influx of new members.

In a discussion about the benefits of amnesty for the Democrat party, Gutiérrez explained that “we can get three or four or maybe even five million people.”

In an interview with Fox’s Neil Cavuto, Gutiérrez expanded that estimate dramatically, hinting that 6 million illegals could receive amnesty under the President’s executive actions.

Via the Daily Caller:

For the first time on Wednesday, Democratic congressman Luis Gutierrez hinted that “over six million undocumented workers” will be granted amnesty through President Obama’s impending executive action — greatly expanding his usual estimate of around five million illegal immigrants.

“Congressman, you have to know something we do not,” he asked on Wednesday. “What?”

Gutierrez demurred, claiming only that he’s been “listening very, very carefully. We’ve been in meetings with people at Homeland Security and the White House for months now.”

“How will he act?” Cavuto later asked.

“Here is what I believe is going to happen,” Gutierrez said. “He’s gonna say, ‘God, there’s over six million undocumented workers that have been here ten years or more. They’ve established roots in their community.”

“So you’re saying six million, then, will be granted status?” Cavuto pressed.

Watch the interview below…

Here is one of the more absurd political statements you’ll see from Gutiérrez:

“Here’s my hope. It’ll happen before the election, sometime in the next 45 days before the election. Because I think there should be no political consideration or consequences considered. We should do this because it’s the right thing to do.”

If Gutiérrez honestly believed that there should be no political consideration when it comes to doing ‘the right thing’ in regards to amnesty, then any action on the matter should be taken after the elections, not 45 days prior.

That 6 million figure meanwhile, comes dangerously close to what an Obama crony estimated would be required to allow the Democrat party to create “a governing coalition of the long term.”

Rather than being devoid of any political consideration, the sole reason Democrats are pushing so hard for amnesty is to strengthen their voter enrollment numbers. They’re trying to purchase the votes of people willing to disregard American laws, illegally cross her borders.
