Las Vegas, NV – Yesterday, Congressman Heck took a break from voting in Washington to deport DREAMers to attend the Hispanics in Politics breakfast in Las Vegas. While Congressman Heck attempted to avoid discussing the topic most people in the audience went to hear about, he was forced to actually defend his votes to defund DACA and tear families apart. Congressman Heck also misled attendees in the audience about his phony efforts to draft an immigration reform bill.
“Congressman Heck tried to rewrite history yesterday, so we decided to rewrite a story to more accurately reflect Congressman Heck’s record of breaking promises and voting to tear families apart,” said Sarah Zukowski, spokesperson for the Nevada State Democratic Party. “No matter how many reporters or immigration reform activists Congressman Heck’s DC handlers try to hide him from, it will not change the simple fact that he opposes comprehensive immigration reform, called for the repeal of birthright citizenship, campaigned with anti-immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and supports Donald Trump for President.”
