Flip Flop Alert: Lobbyist Ralph Reed once again shows that he can’t be trusted with his flip flop on amnesty for illegal aliens.
Over the course of his campaign for Lt. Governor, lobbyist Reed has taken every opportunity to tout his “opposition” to amnesty for illegal aliens. Yet, Reed’s own words show that — as recently as 2004 — he was an outspoken supporter of granting amnesty to millions of aliens in the U.S. illegally.
Following are Reed’s own words on the subject:
- In January of 2004, Reed told a national talk show audience that granting a blanket amnesty to all illegal aliens in the U.S. was a “responsible policy” because ” we have got eight to 12 million illegal aliens in our country right now” and “we need to know who these folks are.” (Ralph Reed, MSNBC, January 21, 2004).
- Just a year later, Reed was telling Georgia voters that “I am opposed to amnesty in any form whatsoever.” (Ralph Reed, Christian Coalition Forum, February 19, 2005).
