    MO BROOKS LEADS SUCCESSFUL HOUSE FLOOR FIGHT THAT DEFEATS OPEN-BORDERS BILL FOR VENEZ

    MO BROOKS LEADS SUCCESSFUL HOUSE FLOOR FIGHT THAT DEFEATS OPEN-BORDERS BILL FOR VENEZUELANS
    Washington, DC— Tuesday evening on the House floor, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) led the fight against H.R. 549, a Socialist Democrat “open-borders” bill that gives hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of Venezuelans special eligibility to enter into and stay in the United States. Congressman Brooks stressed the irony of Democrats seeking to grant amnesty to illegal aliens fleeing a country economically destroyed by the very evils of Socialism Democrats seek to force on Americans. Congressman Brooks emphasized that, in any event, America’s dangerous $22 trillion debt coupled with unsustainable deficits make it financially imprudent for America to be the world’s orphanage for millions of children and adults America lacks the money to care for.
    Congressman Brooks’ efforts were successful. H.R. 549 was killed on a House floor suspension of the rules vote.

    Full text of Congressman Brooks’ remarks follows:
    Thank you, Madam Speaker.

    Let’s be clear, Venezuela is one of the natural resource richest nation on the planet. Oil, top five in reserves in the world.

    The problem with Venezuela is not its people— other than that they made mistakes in who they elected— and the problem is not the lack of resources that should empower those people to be wealthy. Rather, the problem in Venezuela is self-inflicted adoption of Socialism.

    And, let's be clear about the economic havoc that is now occurring in the Venezuela. We have starvation. In one recent study, average adult over a year's period of time had a weight loss in excess of 20 pounds because they couldn't get the calories needed to sustain their body weight. Riots have resulted. Inflation, a few years ago, was over 1,000 percent. Today, you have estimates that inflation in Venezuela is as high as 10 million percent. Of course, the currency is worthless and getting less so.

    So, Venezuela as a country has been brought to its knees by the adoption of Socialism. And, I find it ironic that so many in America now advocate the suppression of free-enterprise and the liberty on which it is based and the replacement of free-enterprise and liberty with Socialism and dictatorial nature that is inherent in the adoption of Socialist practices.

    So, Venezuela is an excellent example why America must never go Socialist. And, I want to emphasize one thing. While Maduro has been in charge of Venezuela, Maduro is not the cause of the economic hardship that is now being faced in Venezuela. Rather, it is the people's adoption of Socialism.

    Now, let's go to H.R. 549 and how it relates to what I just said. This bill proposes a tsunami of people coming to our country who are ill-equipped to support themselves. And, let's put that into the perspective of where we are a nation. We just blew through the $22 trillion debt mark earlier this year. This year, we are looking at a roughly $900 billion deficit.

    A deal that has been reached that will only increase our deficit by $2 trillion over the next two years pushing our debt up to $22 trillion. This is money we do not have, have to borrow to get, and cannot afford to pay back. How does that relate to H.R. 549? Well, let me share some numbers with you. Sixty percent of households with a lawful immigrant in them are on welfare, living off the hard work of others. Seventy percent of illegal alien households are on welfare, living off the hard work of others here in the United States of America.

    Quite frankly, Madam Speaker, the United States of America can no longer afford to be the world's orphanage for children and adults alike. We have to get our own house in order. And, this legislation helps to increase that disorder by increasing our deficit and debt, making it less manageable and further risking a debilitating insolvency and bankruptcy of a great nation.

    I ask for opposing H.R. 549 and that's how I will vote.

    We are not the ATM machine or DUMPING GROUND for the world any more!

    Deport the 25 million illegals and visa overstays!

    Watch our country soar, our inner-cities cleaned up, put American's to work rebuilding our infrastructure and off welfare and food stamps!

    Shut down the refugee, TPS, asylum, and illegal alien programs! Get them out of here!

    Over $133 BILLION a year that should be spent rebuilding our country.

    Venezuela has oil, they have land, they have a whole ocean full of fish to eat!!! Give them nothing and boot them out of here! Go home and get rid of Maduro your own damn selves!!!
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL
