Hours after an on-air meltdown over immigration, Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) asked pro-amnesty business group ImmigrationWorksUSA to bail her out of criticism, prompting the group to send an email plea for phone calls and other support.
“We need your help,” ImmigrationWorksUSA wrote to its email subscribers. “Rep. Renee Ellmers has been an outspoken advocate for immigration reform, and now she is being attacked by the right for her courageous stance. Please join us in speaking out in her defense. Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham called out the congresswoman this morning, and Breitbart TV piled on.”
In the email, the advocacy group wrote that “Rep. Ellmers’ office has asked for our help.” The group then quoted from what a representative from Ellmers’ team specifically asked them to do: “We need any folks that can call the show, or tweet at Laura to do so. We need everyone from top to bottom – from farmers and workers to executives and trade industry folks. She basically claimed that the stories we’re hearing aren’t true. We need to show her that she’s wrong.”
Renee Ellmers has been a disgrace for the people of North Carolina. She represents everything that is wrong with the Republican machine in Washington, D.C.
