Luis Gutierrez' "National Family Unity Tour" to pull heartstrings in support of illegal immigration; ask him a question
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez is conducting a nationwide tour where he and his friends will be visiting churches and conducting townhall meetings from coast to coast to push for comprehensive immigration reform. The schedule is below, and what I need you to do is organize a local effort to go to one of these events and make him look bad on video by asking him a tough question designed to show that he's engaging in false compassion and that he's not promoting the best policies. Please note that I'm talking about very difficult questions, not rants. The goal is to discredit Gutierrez and his friends by countering their emotionalism with logic.
I'm not the community organizer type, so you're going to need to do this yourself. If you're in one of the cities they're going to be visiting, take it upon yourself to form or join with a local group to go to one of the meetings and try to ask a question. If anyone's going and needs tough questions to ask or wants questions to be edited for maximum effectiveness, leave a comment on this post.
It really shouldn't be difficult to completely undermine their arguments, because the argument they'll be making is an immoral one based on an incomplete reading of the Bible. Per this:
[Gutierrez says:] "We are going to focus on families and put this in a biblical, moral perspective." ...Rep. Nydia Velazquez of New York, chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said Tuesday that the National Family Unity Campaign is a "first step on putting a human face on how the broken immigration system is impacting the men and women of America."

*Per them: "Los Angeles will not be attended by Rep. Gutierrez. Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, including Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, Rep. Xavier Becerra, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano, and Rep. Linda Sanchez will attend."
UPDATE: There are several videos on Youtube; one involving baby waving in Norcross GA with John Lewis is here. It includes Gutierrez complaining about one instance of family separation "because our government decided that that was national security, that that was the priority." Whether it was "national security" or not, giving people the idea that they can come here illegally and get to stay just as long as they burden children with being part of a mixed-status family is horrific public policy.
