Stacey Abrams continues to prove that she’s too extreme and out-of-touch for Georgia.
In new video reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Abrams claims that illegal immigrants, despite not holding the right to vote, will have a key role in the “blue wave” that is supporting her campaign for Georgia governor. The video shows Abrams stating that she has support from “those who are documented and undocumented,” appearing to make the claim that illegal immigrants will play a part in her November electoral strategy. The comments were also covered over the weekend by Fox News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
With these comments, Abrams is proving that she is willing to undermine the law if it can help her campaign. She wrong for Georgia.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Tuesday the Democrats’ ‘blue wave’ November would be comprised of those who are ‘documented and undocumented.’
Abrams was speaking with supporters at the Clayton County campaign office during an event with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.). She touted the diversity of the coming “blue wave” that she thinks will sweep Democrats into office nationwide.
‘The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It is white. It is Latino. It is Asian-Pacific Islander,’ she said, going through a diverse list of groups.
‘It is made up of those who’ve been told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented,’ she said.
The Washington Free Beacon emailed Abrams’ campaign to ask what role undocumented immigrants will play in the midterms if they are not legal voters. The campaign did not respond by publishing time.”
