Just how crazed has the Republican party’s hypocritical freakout over President Obama’s immigration order become? Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama is now demanding that Obama be impeached, prosecuted and put in prison for five years. On what legal basis? He has no idea.
Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, one of the lower chamber’s most energetic critics of comprehensive immigration reform, suggested that the president’s move could potentially be grounds for impeachment, or even prison time.
Brooks said there is a federal statute (“I don’t have the citation for it at the tip of my tongue”) making it a felony to aid, abet, or entice a foreigner to illegally enter the U.S.
“At some point, you have to evaluate whether the president’s conduct aids or abets, encourages, or entices foreigners to unlawfully cross into the United States of America,” he continued. “That has a five-year in-jail penalty associated with it.”
Seriously, there simply is no limit to how ridiculous these Tea Party types can be. None whatsoever.
