AUDIO: Former undocumented Collin Street Bakery worker calls McNutt a hypocrite

"I'm talking about Thomas McNutt...who calls us ‘criminal illegal aliens’ - a company that hires undocumented immigrants.” McNutt has said he'll look into it.

The hardline immigration rhetoric of Thomas McNutt, GOP challenger to Rep. Byron Cook, is coming under intense scrutiny now that the Dallas Morning News has revealed that McNutt’s company has a history of hiring undocumented immigrants. McNutt told the DMN he will look into how undocumented workers could have been employed by his family’s Collin Street Bakery.

In the campaign video seen below, McNutt sought to make immigration a central issue in his bid to unseat Cook, Chairman of the Texas House State Affairs Committee. McNutt, a Vice President at the bakery, has said he is running to replace Cook because “the politicians in Austin refuse to address the problem of illegal immigration. We have to outlaw sanctuary cities and end taxpayer handouts to illegal immigrants."

McNutt has been publicly strident about the issue for some time now.
