Louie Gohmert tore into Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and other sanctuary city officials during a Wednesday interview on Fox Business.

Host Stuart Varney gave Gohmert free rein to “vent” on government officials actively working to undermine ICE agents, and the Texas congressman took full advantage of the time.


“It is absolutely insane what the sanctuary cities are doing,” he opened. “They basically have said we want the federal money, in fact, we demand the federal money keep flowing, but otherwise, we’re seceding from the union.”

“We don’t care what the Supreme Court said about the immigration laws. We don’t care what the president or the Congress has said.”

Gohmert called for taking “action to hold people accountable that are helping the criminals in the country to the detriment of law-abiding people.”

“That is not what government is for; it’s been turned upside down,” he closed. “It’s time for us to right those who are wronging their constituents.
