White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has said little to the press since moving into the West Wing this summer, but made a surprise exception late Sunday in an email to a Fox News reporter.
Kelly said Congress did "exactly nothing" to help Dreamers when given the chance. The retired four-star Marine general and Gold Star father was responding to criticism from Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), who called Kelly a "disgrace to the uniform" for his handling of DACA.
Response from Gutierrez's office: "[S]o far we have seen no courage to fight for DREAMers from the President or his Chief of Staff. There is a clear majority in the House today to support measures to defend DACA recipients, but Republicans need to choose whether they want to let that happen or not. So far, the answer is not," Gutiérrez spokesman Douglas Rivlin told Fox.
