Louie Gohmert makes a great point about border security

Published

on

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has some pretty strong opinions about the border crisis and President Trump’s actions to secure it. His home state of Texas is ground zero for the border crisis. He was on OANN’s The Daily Ledger to discuss his perspectives.

“All the President has been asking for, Graham, is about three or four percent of the money that Obama and the Democrats proudly sent to Iran, the largest funder of terrorism,” Gohmert said.

President Trump has been asking for $5.7 billion as a down payment to start building the border wall. There are huge stretches of land along our southern border that have no protection, which is why so many people are crossing the border every day.

As host Graham Ledger pointed out, “It is what any sovereign nation, Congressman, should do, and that is protect your borders. If you don’t protect your borders, you don’t have a country. And this is more than about politics. To me, this is a watershed moment when it comes to our national security.”

It’s a striking point. The money the President is asking for isn’t insignificant, but when we consider the way money is sent around the world, shouldn’t we consider spending just a small percentage of it on our own border security?

Illegal alien Billy Chemirmir charged in 12 murders, was never ordered for deportation

Illegal alien Billy Chemirmir charged in 12 murders was never ordered for deportation

It may be more difficult than it should be to deport illegal immigrants in America, but when they are convicted of crimes, it’s a realistic expectation that they should be deported, especially when they’re arrested in a state like Texas. But that wasn’t the case with Billy Chemirmir who was arrested four times without deportation. Now, he’s being charged with a dozen murders.

The 46-year-old Kenyan national had been arrested for DWI twice, criminal trespassing, and domestic assault, yet he was not deported. His last arrest in 2018 was for murder. Now, 11 more charges have been handed to him, all surrounding the murders of elderly women.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told The Daily Caller that an immigration detainer for Chemirmir was filed with Dallas County Jail in March 2018, but that he’s not currently in the agency’s custody.

Opinion

I’m truly at a loss for words on this case. It’s not like he was hiding under a rock, undetected by law enforcement. It’s not like they didn’t know he was an illegal immigrant. And it’s not like this happened in a sanctuary city. This happened in Texas. He was arrested four times. Yet he was still allowed to roam, work, and allegedly commit murder.

It’s important to note that this is not a case of our porous southern border. Records are unclear of how he came to live and work in America in the first place, but if it was another case of visa overstay, then this will be a slightly different case than we’ve seen in recent weeks. He wasn’t a gang member who came over with migrants. This goes to show that those in the country illegally all need to be examined more closely. We have enough issues with citizens committing crimes. We don’t need even more criminals on the streets.

Quote

“This guy should’ve been detected but wasn’t. In our case, they had him just wandering around the apartment for three hours.” – Richard Arnold, Lawyer for a Victim’s Family

Final Thoughts

If we aren’t deporting illegal immigrants who have been arrested four times in Texas, how can we expect any criminal illegal aliens to be deported? The system is broken. We need to rethink everything about immigration.

‘Serial rapist’ DREAMer Carlos Eduardo confesses to Houston area sexual assaults

Serial rapist DREAMer Carlos Eduardo confesses to Houston area sexual assaults

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order by President Obama has a new set of victims as a Houston man has confessed to two rapes and one attempted rape.

Carlos Eduardo, 18, confessed to following women home from a 24-hour gym, then forcing them by gunpoint into his car. He would then drive them to an isolated location and sexually assault them, according to police.

“He would sit in the parking lot and watch them walk to their cars,” said Chief Josh Bruegger from the Pasadena Police Department.

An anonymous tip led police to Eduardo’s conspicuous lime green Ford Mustang. It appeared he was attempting to change the appearance of the vehicle after CCTV video was released with his vehicle visible.

Opinion

One would be hard pressed to find a mainstream media report even mentioning Eduardo’s immigration status. The left is losing the narrative on the border crisis and other elements of the illegal immigration problem, so the last thing they want to lose is the final remnant of positive credibility they have with DACA.

In other words, they need the perceptions of DREAMers to stay clean.

To be fair, the rates of crimes committed by DREAMers is not noticeably higher than crimes committed by American citizens in the same age groups and locations, but that doesn’t change the fact that they’ve increased crime levels by virtue of their presence in America. Currently, there’s nothing that can be done to demonstrate how crime rates can be reduced because DREAMers are at the bottom of the priority list for most opponents of illegal immigration.

And maybe that’s how it should be.

I’d almost be willing to forget about DACA altogether if we could simply stop the flow of illegal immigrants currently entering the country. Almost. People like Eduardo are a stark reminder that not all DREAMers are innocent, worthy contributors to American society.

Quote

“I believe this was the beginning of a serial rapist. We have three cases. Any time you have that, it scares the community, and it should. That’s really why I wanted this to be a priority. I have a wife, I have daughters; this is the last thing you want out there is a serial rapist on the streets.” – Chief Josh Bruegger

Final Thoughts

This is just another angle of the multi-headed monster of illegal immigration. Border security, asylum loopholes, visa overstays, and the lack of a wall are all problems, but let’s not forget DACA still looms over America.

Petition demanding migrants waiting for asylum hearing be housed on Mexican side of the border

Petition demanding migrants waiting for asylum hearing be housed on Mexican side of the border

The border crisis is completely out of control. Limitations set by Congress in the last budget have prevented CBP from being able to house the mass migrant groups crossing the border illegally every day. Most who claim asylum are released to the interior and may or may not appear for their hearings that are scheduled months or years in advance. In the meantime, they’re free to move about the country.

This is completely unacceptable. If the United States is to be a sovereign nation, we must be allowed to control who enters and stays in the nation. The problem has grown to the point that we can no longer even feign control, and those who want to breach our borders know this.

On the other side of the equation, we cannot simply deport them. This goes against our asylum laws; those who rightfully seek asylum cannot be harmed for the sake of those who do so without just cause. Therefore, deportation prior to their hearing is impossible.

The only viable solution is for the United States to make a deal with Mexico to establish humane temporary housing for them on the Mexican side of the border. This would be must less expensive than the current costs paid to house and track the thousands of migrants who cross over daily, not to mention the costs associated with dealing with them while they’re roaming the country freely. It would be the safest conditions possible for migrants, many of whom are released to the streets of the various cities taking migrants across the country. Even our generous charitable organizations have been unable to keep up.

We demand negotiations begin immediately between the United States and Mexican governments to house migrants on the Mexican side of the border until their asylum hearing date. This benefits migrants and Americans alike.
