Show me your friends

and I will show you who you are

Maria Elvira Salazar (FL-27)

Republican Maria Elvira Salazar is hoping to hold on to the south Florida district after first winning election in 2020. In her first year in office, Salazar voted for a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and showed vocal support for Cuban refugees. She even introduced pro-immigrant legislation. However, Salazar’s efforts appear to be political maneuvering not leadership or a real commitment to immigrant communities. Salazar has not explained how she can move her bill when the leader of the House GOP caucus, Kevin McCarthy, said pro-immigrant legislation was a “nonstarter.” She has remained silent as Florida Governor lied to Venezuela asylum seekers for a dehumanizing political stunt. She was silent as the Lt. Governor suggested bussing Cuban migrants out of the state. She was silent as the Florida Republican party attacked the legislation to protect Dreamers she supported. And she has been silent as her party has embraced same racist “invasion” conspiracies as the racist mass murderer who attacked El Paso in 2019 and Buffalo in May. Salazar even accepted $10,000 from Elise Stefanik’s superPAC after she doubled down on those deadly conspiracies.

Kevin McCarthy (CA-23)

Currently, the House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, hopes to be the Speaker of the House — the top position in the congressional chamber. McCarthy has said he will block any attempt to provide pathways to citizenship for Dreamers or farmworkers. He has also promised to end the investigation into the violent insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. McCarthy has also promised to empower his Republican friends who publicly attended white nationalist events and threatened political violence. McCarthy is more worried about pleasing Donald Trump and his extremist friends than addressing working families' challenges, like lowering healthcare costs or raising the minimum wage.

Elise Stefanik (NY-21)

Currently, the third-ranking House Republican, Elise Stefanik, won her leadership position because she went along with the election lies that the election was stolen from Trump and refused to condemn the violent insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Stefanik has also used her campaign to promote the white supremacist conspiracy theory that immigrants are trying to replace white people and overthrow our democracy. She has echoed the deadly lie about an “invasion” of non-white migrants at the border. Even after the racist mass murderer who attacked customers at a Buffalo grocery store echoed those very same lies, Stefanik doubled down on the dangerous language. Stefanik's lies about the election and an invasion are dangerous and distract from the fact that she wants to deny citizenship, block all refugees, and waste billions on a wall preferring to fear-monger about immigrants for her own selfish politics rather than work towards real solutions.

Matt Gaetz (FL-01)

This Florida Congressman represents part of the Florida Panhandle around Pensacola and Destin and is close friends with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Matt Gaetz faces allegations of underage sex trafficking and has courted offensive controversy as part of his political brand. Gaetz has frequently associated with the racist street gang the Proud Boys. He has proudly endorsed the white nationalist “ replacement theory”— the same racist lie that inspired the mass murderers who attacked El Paso in 2019 and Buffalo in May Gaetz has defended the violent insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and has been a vocal promoter of lies trying to undermine the legitimacy of the last election.
