VIDEO: At Debate, Barbara Comstock Compares Immigrants to FedEx Packages
At today’s debate, Barbara Comstock once again showed why her right-wing agenda is so out-of-touch with Virginia’s values – and today Comstock even went so far as to compare immigrants to FedEx packages. Click here to watch the video.
“Whether she’s supporting mandatory transvaginal ultra-sounds or comparing immigrants to FedEx packages, Barbara Comstock keeps proving that her right-wing agenda is totally out of touch with Northern Virginia’s values,” said David Bergstein of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “This kind of insulting and hyper-partisan rhetoric from Comstock represents exactly what Northern Virginians hate about this dysfunctional Republican Congress.”
Comstock Opposed Comprehensive Immigration Reform. In April 2014, appearing on “The John Fredericks Show” radio show, Comstock was asked about immigration reform: “Because I do not like omnibus bills, whether it’s Obamacare, or huge transportation bills that people don’t read. When you do that you always end up with, the conservative end often gets the short end of the stick in these huge omnibus bills. So I think we’re better off doing step by step, kind of going for the base hits, things like making sure we secure the borders first.” [John Fredericks Show, 4/11/14]
