Below is a statement from Alec DiFruscia (R-Tewksbury), a candidate for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex:
TEWKSBURY, MA — Alec DiFruscia, Republican Candidate for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex District, today released the following statement regarding Rep. David Robertson’s December 5th Op-Ed expressing his opposition to driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants:
“As soon as I entered the race, I immediately called on the legislature to stop driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. Representative Robertson was silent until we pushed him to take a stand.
Make no mistake – it was just last year Rep. Robertson was on the record saying that ‘ICE is unbelievably broken and disgraceful.’
I have always stood against efforts to allow illegal immigrants to get drivers licenses. I understand that having a driver’s license is a privilege for those who follow the law.
Like most career politicians, Rep. Robertson simply shifted his stance once he knew he was facing a competitive challenger, but the voters of Tewksbury and Wilmington won’t forget what he really thinks.”
