President Donald Trump’s announcement this week that he would be ending the program for illegal aliens called “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” has sent liberals into overtime screaming and raving about how terrible it is.
All of them have ignored the fact that the only reason Trump is ending the program is to give Congress a chanceto pass a suitable replacement the right way. The outrage over Trump’s decision has grown by the day, and some of the rhetoric has bordered on disturbing.
Democrat Illinois Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez released a video reacting to Trump’s decision on DACA where he implied that DACA recipients and their supporters should be turning to violence.
“I want to say something that so that we’re clear,” Gutierrez stated on the video. “Yes, we will be on the streets fighting.”
Over the past month we’ve seen what liberals fighting in the streets looks like, and it is quite violent and quite brutal. Gutiérrez is essentially calling for more violence in the United States.
“Yes, we will go to the courts to fight, and we will also insist that our friends and our allies in the Congress of the United States don’t sign a budget, don’t support a budget, don’t collaborate with Republicans and give us a budget unless there is a safe place legislatively, an avenue legislatively, that secures the future for the 800,000 DACA recipients,” he added.
“Let’s be clear. We are going to fight in the courts, we are going to fight in the streets, but also we are going to fight in the Congress of the United States to make sure legislatively we have a solution,” he concluded at the end of the video.

Gutiérrez has been a particularly outspoken proponent of DACA. In August, he was actually arrested at a protest outside the White House demanding that Trump keep DACA in place.
The Washington Times also noted that Gutiérrez (who has not served in the military) claimed that White House chief of Staff John Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, is a “disgrace” to the military because he didn’t stop Trump from ending DACA.
“General Kelly is a hypocrite who is a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear. He has no honor and should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists and those enabling the president’s actions by ‘just following orders,” his statement read.
Rhetoric like that isn’t really going to help Gutiérrez convince people that his side is right. Calling for fighting in the streets and disparaging a decorated Marine general only makes sane Americans think you are off your rocker.
