ABIGAIL SPANBERGER: BAD ON IMMIGRATION, DANGEROUS FOR VIRGINIANS

Glen Allen, VA— In contrast to Congressman Dave Brat (R-Va.-07) who has championed common-sense immigration reform, the Democratic nominee Abigail Spanberger has been steadfast in her support of sanctuary cities and her defense of MS-13 gang members.

“Abigail Spanberger would give safe haven to illegal immigrants, as she’s said sanctuary cities are a ‘localities decision.’ With MS-13 in our own backyard here in Virginia, Abigail Spanberger wants to allow cities to give these gang members sanctuary to conduct their deadly and illegal activities. She’s just too extreme,” said Brat spokeswoman Katey Price.

In an interview last year with Blue Virginia, Spanberger said “ultimately, ‘sanctuary cities’ are a localities decision.” Spanberger further refused to condemn MS-13, instead saying in a tweet that the President’s remarks calling the violent gang “animals,” were “bigotry,” “othering,” and “dehumanizing.”
Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA-07) represents Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. More information may be found on his website at davebrat.com
