“This President wanted to fundamentally transform America and he’s been doing it. Unfortunately, he’s been doing it by looking the other way at the border,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) says.
During an exclusive interview with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily radio program, Gohmert was asked about recent reports of Syrians, Pakistanis and an Afghan being apprehended while trying to enter the country via our southern border. Gohmert said he was glad that “people are waking up across the country to what’s been going on for quite some time.”
While Gohmert said there were problems going back to the Bush administration, he claimed the Bush administration cooperated with concerned members of Congress and “by the time he left office, we made a lot of progress in securing the border. But as soon as President Obama took the oath … those days were over and it was back to being wide open, almost.”
“It’s just insane,” he added.
Gohmert also pointed out that with the FBI Director consistently says there’s no guaranteed way to know who any incoming Syrian refugees “really” are, so it’s imperative to defund the Syrian refugee program completely. While Gohmert sounded somewhat optimistic, he made it clear, it’s still going to come down to slid leadership from top House Republicans like Speaker Ryan and Congressman Kevin McCarthy.
