Today, Congressman Paul Gosar contacted the U.S. Capitol Police, as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking they consider checking identification of all attending the State of the Union address and arresting any illegal aliens in attendance.

Additionally, Congressman Gosar asked that they arrest those using fraudulent social security numbers and identification to pass through security.

WINNING!

I just heard about it. Sounds GREAT!

Sounds reasonable. They are often violent and are not lawful citizens or immigrants in our country. No one cares what they have to say, they need to go home and tell it to their countrymen! We don't know who these people are in reality, and many are fugitives from justice in our country and/or their own!

You can ask Sessions all you want, but he will recluse himself every time he crosses the interests of the Democrats. Most Republicans are afraid of the Democrats. This is not a healthy relationship, and this coercion has to end by putting courageous people into positions.

Democrats don't want a wall, nor do I. I can't imagine a bigger waste of money and I thought Republicans loved money. Knowing how they do business they probably have 12 companies in the wings waiting for those Govt contracts to build a wall.

Haven't these people heard of cameras ? They've only been in existence for 100+years.
You need to research how often the Dems, using DACA as a political issue now, voted to have a border wall in past administrations.
Judging from their past positions and votes for the border walls, I can only assume that If President Trump had been for open borders, the Dems would be against him for that.

IMO They are only using these DACA people, otherwise they would agree to compromise.

What would they use as a platform if they didn't have these illegals to "protect."

They are using illegal immigrants, specifically DACA as pawns simply because they hate President Trump and it fits their obstructionist politics.

Just like the Republicans used uninsured people as pawns just because they hated Obama.

WTH are you talking about? Many of those people WANT to be uninsured, other than having catastrophic plans, like me. I self-insure (self-pay) for my own medical care, but have a policy for catastrophic injury/illness. Obamacare didn't allow that.

I think your current event calendar needs re calibration. My comment has nothing to do with Trump getting rid of the ACA mandate to buy insurance.

See once upon a time there was a Republican party in the minority that hated their leader. They voted 50+ times to kill a policy that leader put in place and were willing to sacrifice and use as pawns millions of uninsured Americans to accomplish that.

However, the story does have a happy ending in which the Republican party in the story above eventually did gain power and still couldn't kill their previous leader's policy.

The end.

I would have been considered to be "uninsured" because I only had catastrophic. I had no coverage for preventive care, etc. So, clearly, you have NO clue about which you're speaking.
