Democrat Rep. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona wrote in a 2006 group email that the deaths of American soldiers in the Middle East were comparable to illegal aliens who have died while illegally trying to cross the U.S. southern border, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Sinema, who is running against Republican Rep. Martha McSally in the Arizona Senate race, was also featured in a 2009 profile as being a rising star in the Democratic Party. At the time, Sinema said she opposed “all” immigration laws. Sinema not only believes illegal aliens dying is the same as U.S. troops, but she has also been busted for previously fighting to preserve a loophole that benefited pedophiles. It is insane that this sort of person could be leading in some of the ‘polls.’
On April 4, 2006, Sinema published a post on a blog called “Local to Global Justice” where she wrote that American soldiers being killed during war in the Middle East was comparable to lawbreakers dying while trying to illegally cross into the U.S.
Here’s her post, per The Beacon:
To state that immigration is not a war or is not equal in magnitude to war, I believe, dishonors those who have died in this country and others as migrants. I volunteer with a group called No Mas Muertes—No More Deaths—and I cannot explain to you the pain that I suffered one hot day last July as I scoured the desert along with scores of others for the bodies of those who have died tortuous and painful deaths in our desert … Death is death, and to rank one form of death as being somehow more important than other death [sic] does us no good as humans. The deaths that people suffer in the Mexico-Arizona desert are the same as the deaths that people suffer in the Iraq desert—they are needless, senseless deaths.
As many would argue, American soldiers risking their lives to defend the U.S. in war is not comparable to those who broke the law to infiltrate the country.
In 2009, Sinema said she opposed “all” immigration laws because many were not fair to illegal aliens. On her current Senate website, she argues that she supports immigration law, a move many see as pandering to voters who want the border state to be secured.
It was also recently revealed that around 2008, Sinema fought to protect loopholes for men caught with child victims, arguing at the time that some 12-year-old children look like adults.
While serving in the state legislature, Sinema argued against eradicating a loophole that allowed men caught with child prostitutes to use the young victim’s appearance as part of their legal defense.
In a video clip of the hearing, which was fact-checked local outlet KTVK, Sinema argued that it was “not fair” to eliminate the loophole, and bizarrely defended the measure that gave more legal protections to adult men who exploited underage children for sexual acts.
“As a former social worker at an elementary school, there were children at my school, 12, 13-years-old, and some of these children look older than me. They were much more, I mean, definitely sophisticated, developed,” Sinema claimed in the hearing from 2007.
“If I had seen a number of my former students at a place outside a classroom, I would not have known that those children were 12 instead of 19 or 20,” she argued.
Sinema compared the deaths of American soldiers to those who broke the law to illegally enter the U.S., previously admitted she was against “all” immigration laws, and fought to protect loopholes to benefit pedophiles.
Sinema is currently in a tight battle with McSally, but many voters will be horrified by her radical positions and comments. Sinema represents the type of candidate the Democratic Party has endorsed ahead of the crucial midterm elections which is a truly frightening thought.
