Gohmert Is Tired of Dems Claiming to Be ‘Compassionate’ Party

by Molly Wharton

Louie Gohmert (R., Texas) says he is tired of liberals claiming they are the “ones with compassion.”

When the congressman was a judge and had to sentence people, he told Fox News Tuesday night, he would go back to his office and weep. But he knew that “we had to be a nation of laws, and follow the laws,” he said.

“What is more caring?” Gohmert asked. “To keep adding mass graves as children are encouraged to flood into the United States because our commander-in-chief will not secure the border?”

He explained that he thinks the more “compassionate” option is “when you actually secure the borders and make people follow the law.”
