Louie Gohmert suspects âundocumented Democratsâ are bringing Ebola across the border
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) warned this week that refugees â who he called âundocumented Democratsâ â fleeing violence in Central America could be bringing diseases like Ebola into the United States.
âThis administration doesnât have the desire, doesnât have the will to actually stop it,â Gohmerttold radio host Tim Constantine on Wednesday. âBecause they see people coming across as undocumented Democrats. And so, they want to keep the surge of people coming in illegally, even though it includes a big spike in Other-Than-Mexicans, OTMs as we call them.â
âIt includes a spike in people from countries where terrorism abounds,â he continued. âWe have people coming in from countries where Ebola is located.â
âAnd, gee, since theyâre coming across our border, and you know, they donât get checked, and most of them donât get really thoroughly checked, they could be coming in with disease that we simply do not need.â
The Texas Republican insisted that he was not âfear mongering.â
âItâs silly not to be more careful,â he said.
Gohmertâs remarks begin at about the 11 minute mark in the following clip from TPNN, broadcast Aug 13, 2014.
