Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) continued to speak out against Arizona’s new immigration law last night. Appearing on MSNBC, Gutierrez said that society’s criminal elements would be pleased with Arizona’s new legislation.“The drug dealers… the rapists, those that are causing so much damage in Arizona and across the country, they have to be happy with this law,” Gutierrez said. “They’re going to cause a division between the people in the population and the police department.

Gutierrez made a point of saying that the police were not to blame. “The police should be those who cradle us, and we should be there to protect them,” Gutierrez said.
