Gohmert: Some GOP Leaders, Like Democrats, Obstructing Funding of Border Wall

The Open Borders GOP
The Enemy Within

(CNS News)  -  House Representative Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), an Army veteran and former chief justice of the 12th Court of Appeals, said "some of the Republican leaders" in Congress are allies with obstructionist Democrats who do not want the U.S.-Mexico border wall funded, and they are trying to stop President Donald Trump because they fear if he gets the economy growing "like Reagan did," he will be "unstoppable."

Congressman Gohmert made his remarks during an Aug. 23 interview on the Laura Ingraham Show, which was also reported at Ingraham's Lifezette.  During the interview, Ingraham and Gohmert discussed the $1.6 billion the House already approved as the first step in building the border wall and Gohmert noted the resistance in the Senate.

Referencing Trump's Aug. 22 speech in Phoeniz, Ariz., Gohmert said, "I had a problem with one thing in the Trump speech, and that was when he said, 'Now, the obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it,' build that wall.' And I'm going, 'What about some of the Republican leaders that are right there with the obstructionist Democrats?' [Trump] was being so nice, I thought, last night."
Gohmert added that the Republicans in Congress have "problems," and said, "I'm so fed up with this."

"I think that some of us may just have to say, 'We're going to vote against every rule until you agree to have money in there to build the wall,'" said Gohmert, in reference to the GOP obstruction. "And, of course, that kind of position gets the Republican leadership upset. But I'm sick of this."

"This is ridiculous," he said. "The wall was one of the things that got President Trump elected, and I'm very grateful that he hasn't walked away from that."

The Texas congressman went on to talk about how some Republicans in Congress do not want President Trump to succeed. 

"There are people in our party that want to stop [Trump]," he said. "But I think there may be some concern by Establishment Republicans — 'Oh my gosh, if he gets the economy going like Reagan did … then he'll be unstoppable.'"

Mr Trump's right-wing supporters are infuriated.

Congressman Steve King of Iowa tweeted at the president that, if the reports were true, "Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible."

One of Mr Trump's most fervent supporters, Ann Coulter, tweeted: "At this point, who DOESN'T want Trump impeached?"

Breitbart, the website run by Mr Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon, ran the headline, "Amnesty Don" and accused the president of "a full-fledged cave".

Pro-Trump Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared dismayed, tweeting that "weak Republicans have betrayed voters" and pushed Mr Trump "into arms of political suicide".

What is Daca?

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) programme - scrapped earlier in September - was created in 2012 by then President Barack Obama, to shield children of undocumented immigrants from deportation.

It also provided work and study permits for those it covered - popularly known as "Dreamers".

In order to qualify for Daca, applicants under the age of 30 were required to submit personal information to the Department of Homeland Security, including addresses and phone numbers.

They had to pass an FBI background check, have a clean criminal background, and either be in school, recently graduated or have been honourably discharged from the military.

In exchange, the US government agreed to "defer" any action on their immigration status for a period of two years.

The majority of Dreamers are from Mexico and other Latin American countries.

The Department of Justice has said no current Daca recipients will be affected by the decision to scrap the scheme before 5 March 2018, but no new applications will be taken.
