‘We Are Under Invasion’: Louie Gohmert Breaks Down Crisis at the Border After McAllen Visit

Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) described the situation at America’s southern border as an “invasion” after a recent visit to McAllen, Texas.

Speaking on The Glenn Beck Program with guest host Dana Loesch, Gohmert said the border patrol facility in McAllen has between 1,000 and 1,200 people, which far exceeds its capacity, and the conditions are absolutely “terrible.”

“As one border patrolman said, ‘I would be livid, I would be ballistic, if my child were in this situation,’” Gohmert remarked. “But the border patrol’s hands are tied because the law says Health and Human Services has to take them, and they’re not picking them up.”

Officials estimate roughly 60,000 unaccompanied children will illegally enter the United States this year, up from roughly 6,000 in 2011. The recent flood of illegals has created what President Obama has labeled an “urgent humanitarian situation.”

“We’re a passionate society, we care, but you have to enforce the law,” Gohmert pleaded. “You have this huge surge of people coming to the American border. You’ve got border patrol and ICE whose hands are tied up … and in the meantime, it makes easy for the drug cartels to get even more drugs across.”

Gohmert said “we are under invasion, and this president will not protect our country, and he will not step in and enforce the law as it is.”

“There should not be any new immigration bill until the president enforces the law,” Gohmert concluded, “and our Department of Injustice [sic] begins to be a Department of Justice.”

Based on Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution, it is the Federal Governments duty to Guarantee protections to the states in the event of an invasion. 
If the Federal Government won't send troops with the power to arrest those invading our country, the states being 'invaded' are left with no other choice but to take it upon themselves to protect their states from this invasion.
