Rep. Renee Ellmers, of the 2nd Congressional District of North Carolina, not only refused to vote for defunding Obama’s executive amnesty, she was the only republican to vote no on an amendment that would prioritize illegal aliens for deportation who’ve been convicted of domestic violence, or child molestation.
Frank Roche, last year’s primary opponent, called out the congresswoman on her weak stance on immigration. She, of course, lied through her teeth. Ellmer’s latest vote vindicates critics who called her out.
As Roche points out, Ellmers tried to explain her votes by saying the bill was "overly broad in scope, as it has the potential to have a real negative and lasting impact on jobs and families in North Carolina." She added, "there are businesses in the Second District who contract with Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and many of these jobs could be put in jeopardy with the passing of this legislation."
Let’s hope she decides not to run. If she wins the primary, I would just as soon have a democrat take that seat rather than a RINO who doesn’t value American citizenship.
