One Democrat slips up and reveals what we already knew to be true- what they really want from illegals are votes. Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said this week that illegal aliens will be part of the Democratic Party’s “blue wave” in the upcoming midterm elections.
Abrams made the remark while campaigning with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Tuesday at the Clayton County campaign office, According to The Daily Wire.
“The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It is white. It is Latino. It is Asian-Pacific Islander,” she said, going through a diverse list of groups.
“It is made up of those who’ve been told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented,” she said.
The Washington Free Beacon emailed Abrams’ campaign to ask what role undocumented immigrants will play in the midterms if they are not legal voters. The campaign did not respond by publishing time.
Republican Governors Association spokesman John Burke said counting on help from illegal immigrants shows Abrams is extreme.
“Stacey Abrams’ admission that she’s counting on illegal immigrants to help her campaign is further proof that she’s too extreme to lead Georgia,” Burke said.
Democrats are really counting on this alleged ‘blue wave’ to carry them into the primaries especially in historically dominate red states, like Georgia. Candidates, like Burke, are trying to appeal to anyone who will listen.
Georgia is one of a small number of states with some of the most strict voter ID policies in effect. Georgia voters must present a photo ID at the voting booth in order to vote. If unable to provide one of the acceptable forms of photo ID, they can still vote using a provisional ballot but will have to provide a photo ID at the county registrar’s office within three (3) days of the election, according to the State’s immigration laws.
The Georgia Democrat has also courted controversy on multiple occasions. In 2012, Abrams triggered rebuke from her colleagues in the state legislature after accusing Republicans of attempting to re-segregate the South. In April, Abrams headlined a speech at the Democracy Alliance’s spring conference, where wealthy donors promoted universal healthcare, free college tuition, and reparations, the Washington Free Beaconreported.
Abrams’ defeat of the more moderate former state Rep. Stacey Evans in Tuesday’s Democratic primary makes her the first black woman nominated by any major party for governor. While numerous media outlets were quick to point out the historical threshold Abrams crossed, few noted that more individuals voted in Tuesday’s Republican primary than the Democratic. Democrats have failed to carry Georgia at the presidential level since 1992 and the last Democrat elected governor in the state was Roy Barnes in 1998.
