Michele Bachmann: Children With Ebola And People From 'Terrorist Nations' Part Of Immigrant 'Invasion'
During her stop on Wednesday’s edition of “Faith & Liberty,” Rep. Michele Bachmann not only outlined her inflammatory anti-gay conspiracy theories and reasons why she supports impeaching President Obama, but also weighed in on the increase in unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border.
“People from Yemen, Iran, Iraq and other terrorist nations are making their way up through America’s southern border because they see that it’s a green light, they can easily get in,” the Minnesota Republican warned. “Not only people with potentially terrorist activities, but also very dangerous weapons are going to cross our border in addition to very dangerous drugs, and also life-threatening diseases, potentially including Ebola and other diseases like that.”
Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey, who like Bachmann has spoken out against vaccinations, also stoked fears about the completely bogus threat of Central American children carrying Ebola.
“This is madness,” she said.
Bachmann went on to claim that Obama is deliberately inviting child migrants into the country in order to establish a Democratic voting bloc, a theory also recently articulated by Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, and begin “transforming America into a Marxist economic model.”
“What he is doing by opening up this southern border, frankly, he is establishing a permanent political class that will vote for a big government mentality that will continually offer welfare decency programs,” she said, arguing that it is all part of a Saul Alinsky-inspired plot to bring communism to America.
The congresswoman argued that the House should move to defund the executive branch and impeach Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson over the “invasion” of child migrants, baselessly asserting that the children will bring diseases into the country and undermine the nation.
“We have this invasion because a political decision was made by our president to intentionally flaunt the laws of the land and put at risk the American people, our culture, our way of life, our economic standing, and also he’s willing to allow a pandemic of disease to come into our country,” she said.
