Americans for Legal Immigration PAC have included Utah Reps. Jason Chaffetz and Chris Stewart on a list of GOP incumbents they would like to see challenged by Tea Party candidates in 2014.
ALIPAC says in a press release, Chaffetz and Stewart have voiced support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, which they characterize as “amnesty.”
ALIPAC organized Tea Parties Against Amnesty, originally led in a coalition of more than 20 illegal immigration fighting groups into the first wave of Tea Party protests, and has made speeches about illegal immigration at many Tea Party rallies.
“The GOP sellouts in Washington supporting Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens need to be targeted and replaced by truly conservative groups in 2014!” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Speaker John Boehner has told big business groups he plans to pass amnesty for Obama right after filing closes so it is very important these thirty to forty GOP incumbents face primary challengers who oppose immigration reform amnesty!”
