CHICAGO - Sitting with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Senator Mark Kirk, and left-wing Congressman Luis Gutierrez, Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger today criticized talk radio's analysis of of comprehensive immigration reform.
“All ya have to do is listen to some of the radio talk shows that you guys know so well where it just stirs up the base-not even the base, it stirs up part of the base,” Kinzinger said. “And they do that because they make money. They sell radio ads. Right? All ya have to do is turn on some of them and hear them talk about all this terrible stuff about America. I mean they have it on both side of the aisle. I’m not just attacking my own party here.”
Kinzinger said Congress is a lot closer on immigration reform than the media and most people think they are.
