Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) blasted the Democrat Party for their blatant mishandling and breaking of our immigration laws. When President Obama passed Executive Amnesty without thought or care for what the law says he attacked the very foundation of our nation… respect for the law.
“The thread that holds the tapestry of our country together is respect for and adherence to the rule of law. The law is the greatest unifying and equalizing force that we have in our culture…
I’m going to say this for those who benefit from the president’s polices. You may be willing to allow the end to justify the means in this case. You may well like the fact that the president has abused prosecutorial discretion and conferred benefits in an unprecedented way. You may benefit from from the president’s failure to enforce the law.
Today, I will make you this promise: There will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law. There will come a day where you will long for the law to be the foundation of this Republic. So, you be careful what you do with the law today. Because if you weaken it today, you weaken it, forever. With that I would yield back.”
