“Thank God we have a president that will stand up to an invasion like this,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) exclaimed Monday, addressing the caravan of thousands of illegal aliens approaching the U.S. border.

The army of illegal aliens storming the U.S. southern border constitutes an actual "invasion" of our country, and President Donald Trump is prepared to take them on, Gohmert told Fox News:

“All of these people trying to force their way in – it’s called an invasion. And, thank God we have a president that will stand up to an invasion like this. But, under our Constitution, a governor can call out military troops to stop an invasion.

“But, fortunately, Governor Abbott won’t have to, because the president’s going to take care of that.”

Both the caravan and the drug cartels supporting it are in for a rude awakening when they hit the U.S. border, because President Trump is tough enough to stop them, Rep. Gohmert said:

“They’re going to find out we have a very strong president – not a weak-kneed guy that’s afraid of offending people. Because, he understands his job is protecting the American people – and that’s what you can expect President Trump to do.”

Despite liberal complaints, President Trump has clear authority to deploy troops to stop the invasion of illegal aliens, Gohmert said:

“There’s nothing unconstitutional or illegal about the president doing what Woodrow Wilson did: put tens of thousands of people on the border and make sure nobody forces their way in.

“And, you’re talking about coming through ports of entry – the president’s got to close the border until this threat is over, because it is a threat.”
