GOP Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona asked U.S. Capitol Police and Attorney General Jeff Sessions if they would consider arresting illegal immigrants who are attending President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address Tuesday evening.
“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,” Gosar tweeted Tuesday.
The representative also requested that Capitol police arrest those who are using fake social security numbers and other means of identification to get through security Tuesday evening.
“Of all the places where the Rule of Law needs to be enforced, it should be in the hallowed halls of Congress. Any illegal aliens attempting to go through security, under any pretext of invitation or otherwise, should be arrested and deported,” Gosar said.
The president is expected to give a speech Tuesday that highlights his administration’s achievements, like the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorusch, the recently signed Republican tax reform bill and a number of Senate-confirmed judicial appointments.
A host of congressional Democrats are planning on boycotting the president’s address Tuesday night, claiming their decision is based of the president’s “shithole” comments in early January.
