Republican Congressman Calls for Illegals to be Arrested at State of the Union

Paul Anthony Gosar is an American politician, a member of the United States House of Representatives representing Arizona’s 4th congressional district.

If you haven’t heard of him so far today you will hear something very interesting about him!

He has asked U.S. Capitol Police and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to consider arresting and deporting illegal immigrants who attend President Trump’s first official State of the Union on Tuesday.

“Of all the places where the Rule of Law needs to be enforced, it should be in the hallowed halls of Congress,” Gosar said on Twitter ahead of Trump’s address. “Any illegal aliens attempting to go through security, under any pretext of invitation or otherwise, should be arrested and deported.”

A number of lawmakers have already announced that they have invited DACA recipients and others who have been touched by immigration. While DACA recipients are not U.S. citizens, they have protected status that may or may not have expired following President Trump’s cancellation of an Obama-era executive order.

“The speaker clearly does not agree,” House Speaker Paul Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a statement to CNN.

It’s unclear whether the Capitol Police would comply with Gosar’s request.
