GOP Rep Asks Capitol Police To Arrest Any “Dreamers” That Show Up To State Of The Union

Some Democrats have said they’re planning to bring ‘Dreamers’ to the state of the union address. One report even said they were going to fill the balcony. One Republican lawmaker from Arizona has called on capitol police to arrest them.

Conservative Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) is calling for the arrests of young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, often called “Dreamers,” who attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Dozens of Democrats and one centrist GOP lawmaker are bringing such immigrants as their guests to the State of the Union amid the debate in Congress over whether they should be allowed to stay in the country.

Gosar said he asked the Capitol Police and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to consider checking the identifications of everyone attending the State of the Union and arrest any immigrants they find in the country illegally.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is not endorsing Gosar’s call to arrest and deport the Dreamers in attendance, making it unlikely such a suggestion would go into effect.

“The Speaker clearly does not agree,” Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in response to Gosar’s tweets.

We’ll see tonight if the Democrats try to pull something. No one would be surprised.
