Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, spoke with Stephen Bannon of Breitbart News today about the political squabble over resettling refugees, alleging that the president is allowing terrorists to enter the country as part of his plan to “fundamentally transform America.”
Bannon asked the congressman to respond to listener who had told Bannon that they were afraid that terrorists are using the refugee resettlement program to enter the U.S.
Gohmert didn’t have reassuring words: “They’re here, they’re here, there is no question, they’re here, that’s been confirmed over and over but it’s got to stop, it’s got to stop.”
He also thanked Bannon for defending “lonely” and “ostracized” Christians like himself who have been “standing against political correctness that is about to bring the greatest nation in history down if we don’t stop the insanity.”
Gohmert also pointed to the news that two Syrian families turned themselves in to immigration authorities at the southern border as evidence that President Obama has left the borders open in order to further his anti-American agenda.
“This president wanted to fundamentally transform America and he’s been doing it,” Gohmert said. “Unfortunately, he’s been doing it by looking the other way at the border.”
He told Bannon that while President Bush eventually started to crack down on border traffic toward the end of his term, “as soon as President Obama took the oath, took over, those days were over and it was back to just being wide open almost. It’s just insane.”
