Gohmert: Exec Amnesty ‘Offensive’

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) declared President Obama’s executive order on immigration “offensive” to the Constitution, African-Americans, and Hispanics on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

“[The executive order] is such an offense to the Constitution, and by the way, Sean, it is so offensive to the African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans who have an enormously high unemployment rate. This president has come in and said, ‘you know what, for political gain, I am going to give 5 million people the authority to work here, even though that’s illegal, I’m going to do it.’ And that’s going to leave 5 million people out in the cold” he stated.

Gohmert also took issue with President Obama’s interpretation of Scripture, saying “he quoted Exodus 22:1 here, but if you just go over to the next column, maybe he hasn’t seen these verses, Sean. You must not spread a false report. Do not join the wicked to be a malicious witness. You must not follow a crowd in wrongdoing. Do not testify in a lawsuit and go along with a crowd to pervert justice. Do not show favoritism to a poor person in his lawsuit.’ This man is showing favoritism and he’s lying about Congress.”
