Tea Party Candidate Drew Turiano Calls For ‘Operation Wetback’

 

The new Republican outreach isn’t going as well as they would like. Real estate investor, Drew Turiano, a Tea Party-affiliated real estate investor joining the race for a Montana congressional seat, called for “another Operation Wetback” in comments published in the local press on Monday — apparently unaware that current deportation levels exceed those of the 1950s.

“It was called ‘Operation Wetback’ and that policy repatriated about 1.4 million illegal aliens that were in America from Mexico,” Turiano said. “He repatriated them along with their American-born children. President Eisenhower did that, it was called Operation Wetback. I think America needs another Operation Wetback.”

Latinos only make up about 3 percent of the population, about 30,000. How this may impact Turiano’s bid is uncertain.
