“What can you do as a congressman to help Georgia process these rape kits?” a woman asks in the video. (The version below has been cut down for length.)
“There are grants available, and we’ll do everything we can to help,” Carter replied, after some prodding. “Unless they’re a sanctuary city,” he laughed.
Shelton followed up on this response a few minutes later. “Were you serious about the sanctuary city remark, or was that just a joke? Like, you wouldn’t provide grants to test rape kits if it was a sanctuary city?”
“No, we do not, I voted for a bill that does not allow federal law enforcement grants to go to any sanctuary cities, I was very serious about that,” Carter replied.
“Do you feel like that serves your constituents?” Shelton asked.
“Yes, it does,” Carter said. “It does serve my constituents, because if you’re a sanctuary city, that means you are refusing to enforce our immigration laws here in the United States, and if you’re doing that then I don’t want to be sending you any federal grants to go to your city.”
You will never be able to convict your rapist, to punish your city for being kind to immigrants. That is GOP logic at it’s finest.
