Illegal Immigrant MSNBC Guest Jabs Jeb for Opposing Sanctuary Cities

‘But [Bush] went on to say that he wanted sanctuary cities to be, you know, to get rid of sanctuary cities; for me, it just doesn’t make the cut’

Illegal Immigrant MSNBC Guest Jabs Jeb For Opposing Sanctuary Cities (NewsBusters)

If a woman announced on live national TV that she had shoplifted an iPhone, there'd presumably be a cop at the studio door to greet her.  So why is it that someone can blithely announce on national TV that she's in the country illegally, and far from fearing any repercussions, have her views on the American presidential election respectfully solicited?

It happened this morning, when MSNBC invited Erika Andiola, who described herself as "an undocumented Mexican woman," onto the Up show to give her take on the GOP candidates' comments on immigration during Thursday's debate. Andiola was disappointed in general that the candidates didn't stand up to Donald Trump's remarks on immigration. In particular, she jabbed Jeb Bush for continuing to express opposition to sanctuary cities. That doesn't "make the cut" as far as Andiola's concerned, adding that Bush needs "to push back stronger." Good point, Ms. Andiola. I mean, without sanctuary cities, where is poor Francisco Sanchez supposed to hang out?

Jonathan Capehart guest-hosted for Steve Kornacki, and of course never made a peep about Andiola's illegal presence in the US.
