Congressman: Undocumented women will get raped in a field unless we pass immigration reform

Among other ludicrous things in the clip above, Democrat Congressman Luis Gutiérrez said this:

“There’s a woman that’s going to be raped in a field somewhere in America today because she has not rights in this country. We need to end that.”



The assumption here is that the illegal woman won’t report the rape because she doesn’t want to turn herself in and thus be deported. So because she, or because someone else brought her here illegally and she wants to hide to avoid deportation, we should grant her amnesty? No, that’s not my responsibility. And if she is raped while here illegally then she, or the people who brought her here put her in that vulnerable position. I’m sorry, but that’s what happens when you don’t enter the country legally. We have laws and they should be respected.

I understand the allure of wanting to live in America, but DO IT LEGALLY!
