GOOD: Congressman Launches Legislation to Immediately Deport the Illegals

The mainstream media often portrays the crisis of illegal immigration brought about by President Obama’s executive orders creating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) as “humanitarian” because of the number of allegedly unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally.

Texas Representative Louie Gohmert has spent three weekends on the border recently with the Border Patrol, Texas Rangers, and other law enforcement officials, and his experiences tell a different story.

As a result, The Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security has now drafted legislation that will allow the United States to process and deport illegal immigrants quickly, according to commentary he wrote for Breitbart.

He says the description of the immigrants as children is intentionally deceptive. “Most of the children crossing the border are male and teenagers or adults,” he says, “while [even] the smaller percentage of ‘unaccompanied’ younger children are brought by someone, though they may step aside once here.”

Because they are children, the former appeals court chief justice says, it’s all the more important that America reunite them with their families and “return them home to show the benefit of following the law.”

Gohmert agrees that a humanitarian crisis exists, but not the one that’s generally reported by the media. The crisis, he says, is the luring of children to the country by President Obama’s policies, turning children into “pawns of political zealots and drug cartels.”

We have said it many times: we, and all patriotic Americans, understand and sympathize with the desire of anyone to come to the United States in search of freedom and opportunity they do not have at home. But those ideals are founded on the principle of law: without the rule of law, the freedom and opportunity we enjoy–and they seek–will dissolve into chaos.

Representative Gohmert is correct to call for a closed border and expedited deportation. Americans must unite behind these ideas–and the leaders who support them–or be further subjected to the tyranny of Obama’s executive amnesty.
