Donnelly supports deportation of immigrants?

February 18, 2008

from an article in the Elkhart Truth:

“Gunn and her husband, Jim, asked Donnelly a range of questions about his views on illegal immigration, the SAVE act and how the federal government can work with Goshen’s local government.

Robinson asked Donnelly what he felt should be done about illegal immigrants. When he agreed they should be deported, she applauded.

The article is also posted on the Congressman’s website as a “News Clipping” with the headline “Donnelly Wins Praise: Immigration key issue residents talk about with rep.”



from a comment to this post:

“Thank you for your interest in this article. I, too, raised my concern about the article in a meeting with Congressman Donnelly today. He assured me that he did not say that he favors deportation. He asserts that he was misquoted. He added that the article will be removed from his website tomorrow (Tuesday), as today is a federal holiday.”
