HOST J.D. HAYWORTH: Let me ask you about the situation that’s unfolding now. The funding for the Department of Homeland Security has not been secured, has not been given by the Congress. The president is moving full-speed ahead with his executive amnesty. If you had advice for the Senate and House leadership, what would it be?
CARSON: I would say break the funding for Homeland Security up into parcels. Don’t present it as a whole bill. That makes it much more difficult for him to stand in the way. And, if he does stand in the way, particularly with things that are vital to the security of this country, then I think we can start talking about treason.
HAYWORTH: Would you repeat that statement?
CARSON: If things are done that are contrary to the security of this country, whoever does them is guilty of treason.
