Republican Congressman Will Do ‘Anything Short of Shooting’ Immigrants

International Business Times, July 13, 2011

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala) is coming under fire for saying that he would do anything necessary to halt illegal immigration “short of shooting” undocumented immigrants.

“As your congressman on the House floor, I will do anything short of shooting them,” Brooks said to WHNT, an Alabama TV station. “Anything that is lawful, it needs to be done because illegal aliens need to quit taking jobs from American citizens.”

Rep. Charlie Gonzalez, (D-Texas) head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, noted that “words have consequences” and faulted Brooks for “irresponsible words that reflect a hateful, dehumanizing undercurrent.”

“They have no right to be here,” Brooks said in the same interview. “They are clogging up our emergency rooms, and making our education system more expensive. If you go to the Madison County Jail, there are far too many illegal aliens there because they have victimized Americans.”

    When congressmen make statements like that it’s because the American people are driving it. They know which way the winds blowing and they’re trying to capitalize on it. Our job is to make sure they follow through on the tough talk.

    He should consider some of the statements made by his co-racialist like, this is their country & whites should go back to Europe. Of course they fail to understand that this IS Europe now.

    Rep. Brooks is a man after my own heart. Glad someone from my birth state is speakin out. Most politicians are too afraid to say what everyone out here is thinking.

    “Of course they fail to understand that this IS Europe now”

    It is also on the edge of becoming AFRICA and SAUDI ARABIA all rolled into one with all the stOOpid AFRICANS converting to islam.

    Charlie Gonzalez says “words have consequences.” He’s right. That’s why I’d vote for Mo Brooks in a heartbeat, so long as I was confident that he’d back up his words with action.

    Why limit your options?

    This incindiary use of language is dangerous but it does reflect America’s growing hatred of indigence, importation of illegals and immigration period. We must fight for Americans for Americans. And, hopefully, it won’t be as bloody as some anti-American elements want.

    LIKE INVADING ARMIES, they come from all over the world to seize a country that seems to have people who no longer have a spine and allow anyone and everyone (not white of course) to demand and get what they want from America. Stealing your childrens future and bankrupting the whole American system as Real Americans sit and wath American Idol?

    These new invaders to America are not like you and me they come armed and prepared to take your country from you.

    What is there about this we don’t understand?

    They will have No Mercy once they control this country and trying to reclaim it will be all but impossible!

    It’s a good sign that a guy like Brooks-as you can see below-is a lot smarter than the average congressperson:

    Why am I suddenly thinking a lot more about the significance of the Gun Running scandal, where Obama and Holder have been arranging for thousands of weapons to be placed in the hands of…..Mestizos, drug cartels, gangs and who knows who else? Has Obama been helping to arm a Reconquista-La Raza, Che Guevara-worshiping Aztlan guerrilla army?

    Why does Gonzalez think his words will have consequences? He did say he would do anything SHORT of shooting them, he did not say he would shoot anybody.

    I’m glad to see politicians saying what needs to be said. Let’s just hope his words are followed up by aggressive legislative work.

    Well said and soooo TRUE! Why can’t White Americans see and understand this?

    The WHITE neocons are too busy labeling us racists if we dare talk about it. Just try calling one of their talk shows and repeat this and you will be demonized. Same with the Tea Party puppets.

    The Congressman’s “anything short of shooting them” clause is actually pretty generous considering the other side in this conflict is using movies like “Machete” to actively promote violence by illegals against us American whites.
