• RPV Statement on Wannabe Presidential Candidate Terry McAuliffe’s Fake Pardon

    The Republican Party of Virginia issued the following statement:

    “The individual who received the pardon, committed a crime when she was caught entering this country illegally over a decade ago and decided to stay. She then broke the law by driving a vehicle without a license. Why should this illegal immigrant get to stay in this country when hundreds of thousands of potential immigrants wait in line legally? We know that Governor McAuliffe, as well as every statewide Democrat Party candidate this year, believes that illegal immigrants should qualify for public benefits like driver’s licenses and not face any consequences for their crimes. We fundamentally disagree, the Republican Party of Virginia believes in the rule of law and that the concerns of the citizens of Virginia should come first, not those of illegal immigrants.

    We know that Terry McAuliffe is auditioning to run for the Democrat nomination for president in 2020 and is trying to check every box with out-of-state liberal interest groups. The least he could do is pretend that he cares about the citizens of Virginia instead of pandering to the illegal immigration lobby.”
