Allow me to refresh your memory about who exactly California’s Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is:
GOP Congressmen: Iraq War a “horrible mistake…Everybody” thinks so. Surprise! It turns out it was just a big ol’ GOP oopsie! (Maybe he should watch this VIDEO– Hubris: Selling the Iraq War. BushCo saw an opportunity and took it, and took us.)
And just for giggles: Dana Rohrabacher surfin’ and singin’. Not kidding.
But you know what isn’t funny? Rohrabacher’s long record of voting against measures like a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.. His disgusting attitude literally brought one in particular, a teenage girl who was raised here but born in Mexico, to tears.
When Jessica Bravo came here this month to talk to her congressman, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach), about expanding rights for illegal immigrants, their meeting ended in a shouting match and tears.
Bravo, an 18-year-old community college student at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, was smuggled over the border from Mexico by her parents when she was 3. She recently joined hundreds of other young illegal immigrants in a campaign to confront members of Congress and ask them to vote for a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. [...]
In the scheduled meeting with Rohrabacher, Bravo said the congressman stiffened when she said she and her parents came to the U.S. unlawfully. Five minutes into the meeting, Rohrabacher’s face turned red, she said, adding that he said he represents citizens and hates illegals.
Of course, Rohrabacher denies that ever happened, saying the meeting turned nasty when “a community organizer with Bravo implied he was racist.”
Maybe it was Rohrabacher himself who implied he was racist. Just a thought.
But see, a community organizer was present. In his narrow mind that explains everything. Next thing you know, he’ll accuse the now-defunct ACORN of setting him up to look like an intolerant, bigoted, xenophobic villain, forging Jessica Bravo’s name on eleventy-two voting registration form, and throwing the meeting.
