Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) appeared on “Fox and Friends” to discuss the recent outrage of the Department of Homeland Security granting citizenship status to hundreds of illegals before they were properly vetted by the FBI.

We are seeing reports that U.S. arms are fighting U.S. arms. Turkey has rolled U.S.-made M60 tanks into Syria to attack U.S.-backed Syrian Kurds. These Kurds have our weapons and support — and have had special forces embedded with them.

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today voted in favor of two measures that would provide law enforcement with new tools to stop suspected terrorists from buying firearms and strengthen existing laws on background checks. Both proposals protect Americans’ constitutional right to due process and uphold the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. “Suspected terrorists should not have access to firearms – period.” Wicker said. “No one is arguing that point. Rather than using the recent terrorist attack in Orlando for political gain, the goal should be to give law enforcement the tools they need to monitor, investigate, and detain terrorists. I believe this can be achieved while protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens.”

“The American people are rightly concerned about two issues right now – our nation’s visa waiver program and our Syrian refugee program. I’m frustrated that the Homeland Security official in charge of screening people coming to our country was unable to answer any of my questions about either program. Congress has a responsibility to use the Omnibus to pass legislation that addresses these issues – particularly pausing our Syrian refugee program until we can be sure that terrorists are not exploiting it.”
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the foreign-born population in the United States is at a record 41.3 million. One-quarter of the U.S. population is now either foreign-born or has foreign-born parents. The Census Bureau projects the percentage of the population born outside the country will soon pass the highest percentage ever recorded and continue rising to new all-time records never before witnessed – unless Congress passes a law to reduce green card allotments.
