Mariannette Miller-Meeks, a Republican primary candidate in Iowa’s 2nd district, has repeatedly voiced support and “understanding” for granting amnesty to illegal aliens.
It’s the latest evidence against the three-time congressional race loser’s insistence that she represents an “America First” platform.
The resurfaced comments are in addition to Miller-Meeks masquerading as a pro-life advocate despite saying she was “pro-choice” in 2018, and describing Donald Trump as “as fit as Hillary Clinton” to be president and saying they are both equally “liars and corrupt.”
She expresses “understanding” for Senator Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush’s “thoughts on immigration,” – code for their policies which grant citizenship to individuals who entered the U.S. illegally.
At Miami International Airport, and I can understand Rubio's & Bush's thoughts on immigration.

Rubio has voted to grant citizenship to minors who came to the U.S. illegally, allowed to stay only due to the Obama-era policy of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and co-sponsored the bill that granted Temporary Protected Status to almost 200,000 Haitians. Bush even supports birthright citizenship, immediately granting full citizenship to anyone born in the U.S. This prospect, beloved by the left, cost U.S. taxpayers over $2 billion annually.
Both candidates are a far cry from President Trump’s stance on immigration and there’s no reason a solidly America First could even begin to “understand” these policies which undermine the rule of law, disadvantage U.S. workers, and make communities less safe.
Miller-Meeks also believes it is “not compassionate” to force illegal aliens to “live in the shadows,” an expression chiefly use by the left to portray illegal aliens as victims eternally fearful of getting caught by immigration officials and unable enjoy all the privileges of U.S. citizenship.

Whether it’s abortion, immigration, or genuine support for the President, Miller-Meeks’s falls flat.
