Democrat politicians and the media were up in arms.
Donald Trump proposed deploying the National Guard in order to secure the southern border.
Trey Gowdy stepped up and silenced Trump’s critics with one statement.
Gowdy defended the President’s decision.
He stated that every nation had a right to defend its borders.
Gowdy joined President Trump in ripping the current immigration laws as weak.
And he declared that no one should have to apologize for protecting the border from illegal crossings.
The Daily Caller reports:
Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina said America shouldn’t have to apologize for wanting secure borders and thinks immigration enforcement should ramp up.
Gowdy approves deploying the national guard to the border to stem the flow of illegal immigrants and maintain America’s sovereignty.
“I do because no country should ever apologize for border integrity,” Gowdy said on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company” Wednesday. “The president’s right, it’s a misdemeanor to cross the border without permission. A misdemeanor. It doesn’t become a felony unless and until you re-offend and it’s not a crime at all to overstay your visa.”
The current laws are a sign of weakness, Gowdy said and thinks the federal government should act to change those rules by whatever means necessary.
“I don’t know what gets weaker than not being a crime and a misdemeanor,” he said. “No sovereign nation should ever apologize for border integrity. So by whatever means that needs to be accomplished.”
Democrats refuse to lift a finger to help secure the border.
No Democrat will vote for any legislation that secures the border and restricts immigration in any meaningful way.
Their only demand is amnesty.
So Trump has no choice but take the executive actions the Constitution permits.
