Luis Gutierrez, pro-amnesty Congressman and harsh Trump critic, realizes his time is up.

One of the most notorious amnesty Congressmen in the House of Representatives is Luis Gutierezz.

Gutierrez has realized that he doesn’t wan to run for re-election. Perhaps this means he realizes that the tide has turned and there is no chance he can win the battle to win amnesty for more illegals.

Breitbart reports, “Amnesty Champion Rep. Luis Gutierrez Quitting Congress, Says Chicago TV Station.

The Democrats’ leading pro-amnesty legislator, Chicago Rep. Luis Gutierrez, is quitting Congress, according to a Chicago TV station, NBC 5.

The station reported Monday evening:

“NBC 5 has learned congressman Luis Gutierrez will announce Tuesday he is not running for re-election after 24 years on Capitol Hill, sources say. Guitterez telephoned key democratic leaders late this afternoon to let them know of his plans. Calls to Guitterez tonight have not been returned.”

Gutierrez’s departure comes as his allies recognize the sinking prospects in 2017 for a no-strings “clean Dream Act” for 3 million illegals, including the 690,000 ‘DACA’ beneficiaries

In 2013 and 2014, Gutierrez was the leading Democratic pushing for House approval of the unpopular “Gang of Eight” amnesty-and-cheap-labor act.
