Representative Louie Gohmert (R-Batshit) says immigrant children from Central America have been coached to say they’ve fled violence in their home countries.
Why would someone coach them to say that? Because, according to Gohmert, they’re terrorists and rapist who only appear harmless.
“Texas and the United States is [sic] being invaded and we’re in danger,” Gohmert said, before alleging that most of the unaccompanied minors are lying when they tell border patrol agents that they are escaping gang violence in Central America and have been coached to make such claims. Gohmert said minors end up telling officers that “we were told to say that we were fleeing gang violence.”
The congressmen went on to say that “the penetration of criminals and terrorists across our southern border” represents a threat to the U.S. comparable to the threat of a nuclear strike from Iran against Israel.
Gohmert also says the real War on Women is President Obama’s enabling of these child rapists who obviously travel thousands of miles just to commit rapes.
GOHMERT: If you want to talk about a War on Women, talk about the president not securing the border that allowed 7,000 women to be raped or sexually assaulted in Texas.
This would be a good time to remind you that the overwhelming majority of children who have migrated here from Central America are under 10-years-old. A majority of them haven’t even entered puberty. They’re children. They came here looking for food and shelter because some damn fool led them to believe America was a land of compassion and opportunity.
We may know that Louie Gohmert is a disturbed man who belongs in a padded cell, but each insane thing he says encourages the armed lunatics who’ve decided to take matters into their own hands. And the ironic truth is it’s more likely his words will lead to the death of local law enforcement than the mythical invading rapists he speaks of.
