Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had harsh words for the GOP establishment who voted for immigration reform, saying they “disrespect Hispanics” by passing the bill.
“Great job, GOP establishment,” began the statement Palin posted on Facebook on Friday. “You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill.”
The Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill on Thursday 68-32. Fourteen Republicans voted for the legislation, which has been characterized as a way for the GOP to increase its appeal among a traditionally Democratic base: Hispanics.
