 Luetkemeyer Chides Pelosi for
Hurtful Immigration Comment

           
WASHINGTON, D.C. _ U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-9) today signed a
letter rebuking Nancy Pelosi for insulting law enforcement officers at the
Department of Homeland Security by calling their efforts  to enforce our
country’s immigration laws passed by Congress “un-American.”

           
Luetkemeyer, along with 18 members of the House of Representatives, sent the
letter in response to Pelosi’s March 14 comments during a speech in front of a
group of both legal and illegal immigrants. During that speech, Pelosi called
worksite enforcement and the deportation of illegal workers “un-American.” 

In the
letter, Luetkemeyer and his fellow lawmakers called Pelosi’s comments “both
cruel and hurtful” to the law enforcement officers, especially in light of her
position as the Speaker of the House.

           
“Calling the men and women of the Department of Homeland Security who have taken
an oath to defend the constitution of the United States ‘un-American’ is
unacceptable,” the letter said. “We assume you did not expect the men and women
of the Department of Homeland Security to hear this, but they have and we
recommend you apologize to them.”
