Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chair Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota sported a T-shirt calling for the elimination of national borders while walking in a May Day parade on Saturday.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Monday published a video of Ellison greeting parade marchers in Minneapolis while wearing the shirt, which read, “yo no creo en fronteras.” That translates to “I don’t believe in borders.”
Just under one third of Democrats, 32 percent, support “basically open borders,” a Harvard-Harris Poll found in January.
Ellison has stirred controversy before with his embrace of hard left politics. (RELATED: Keith Ellison Has A History Of Support For Radicals)
He was revealed earlier this year to have lied for years about his relationship with Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite.
