Dave Brat One-Ups Barbara Comstock, Compares Undocumented Immigrants to ISIS

Virginia Democrats' Latino Caucus Responds to Brat's Offensive Comments
 
Immigrants in Virginia just cannot catch a break from their conservative representatives in Congress. As if Barbara Comstock reducing New Americans to FedEx packages wasn't bad enough, Dave Brat's reminding folks that he, too, is offensive. He argued on the John Fredericks Radio Show yesterday that undocumented immigrants who want to join the military weren't actually showing their patriotism, because "ISIS is willing to serve in our military as well."

"Rep. Brat's comments equating DREAMers to ISIS are both reprehensible and sadly predictable. It's sad, but unsurprising, that he's managed to top Barbara Comstock's insensitive comments comparing immigrants to FedEx packages," said Monique Alcala, President of the Virginia Democrats Latino Caucus. "Comparing hard-working American patriots in our workforce and schools to terrorists is offensive fearmongering. Theare not terrorists; they are Americans."

He was the first GOP presidential candidate to defend the anti-LGBT law, and today will blame "coercive federal power" for getting in the way of those who wish to discriminate. But that's not all: he'll reference his staunch opposition to a woman's right to choose. As Governor, he infamously intervened in controversial abortion cases, including those involving children.
