Presidential candidate Lincoln Chafee is giving the Democratic Party a headache and it’s not because he has consistently been the lowest-polling contender on the right.
While speaking at the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting last week, the former Rhode Island governor and U.S. senator shared a little too much about why he believes Democrats support amnesty.
“We’re right on immigration, the fastest growing voting bloc in the country,” Chafee said. “Of course we want that people to be treated with respect, and to vote Democratic.”
Chafee’s statement contradicts what his party has largely claimed, that reforms to immigration policies are based on compassion and not tied to luring in government-dependent, Democratic-aligned individuals by the millions.
