Tennessee Congressman Demonstrates What’s Wrong With The GOP
Ladies and gentlemen, Tennessee Republican Rep. Scott DesJarlais:
A young girl told Tennessee Republican Rep. Scott DesJarlais at a town hall last week that her father was an undocumented immigrant. The girl was asking what she can do so her father would not be forced to leave the country.
“I have a dad, and he’s undocumented, what can I do so that he can stay with me,” the young girl asks.
“Thank you for being here and thank you for coming forward and speaking this is a big intimidating crowd and appreciate you coming forward and asking your question but the answer still kinda remains the same. We have laws, and we need to follow those laws and ya know, that’s where we’re at,” the Congressman said to applause.
Here’s the video:
Seriously Congressman? This is how you address a child who’s afraid that she may never see her father again? And don’t even get me started about the crowd that cheered his response.
