Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is sick of the illegal immigrant crisis that has been perpetuated by Barack Hussein Obama, so he is taking action.
According to The Political Insider, Gowdy has accused the Obama administration of refusing to enforce current immigration laws and defend the rights of American citizens. Obama has been going about this by halting the efforts of U.S. Border Patrol and immigration enforcement agencies while also giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens by unconstitutional executive orders.
“Today there are over 350,000 known criminal aliens in the United States who are not detained by ICE, 350,000,” Gowdy said at a recent hearing examining the victims of illegal immigrant crime.
“That number may not get your attention — statistics rarely do — so I want you to think about it this way. The number of criminal aliens living in the United States, not in custody, not separated from society, it larger than the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Larger than the city of Lexington, Kentucky, larger than the city of Anaheim, California,” he asked. “Can you imagine a city the size of Pittsburgh, comprised sole of people who are here unlawfully who have also committed another crime?”
Obama’s executive actions are currently being challenged before the Supreme Court, and Gowdy is furious at Obama’s attorney’s deceptive arguments:
“Just yesterday the lawyer for the president was at it again, this time at the United States Supreme Court, arguing for the nonenforcement of the law, arguing for the wholesale failure to enforce the law,” Gowdy said. “And he said this: ‘The damage that would be reeked by tearing apart families.’ If you want to see that damage, Mr. Solicitor General, if you want to see what tearing apart looks like, I hope you’re watching this morning.”
We applaud Gowdy for continuing to fight to expose Obama’s illegal actions. SHARE this story if you stand with Gowdy against Obama!
