Gohmert Hammers ICE Director on ‘Illegal’ Deferrals: ‘I Would Appreciate You Not Yelling’

Things Get Testy Between Louie Gohmert and ICE Director During House Hearing: ‘I Would Appreciate You Not Yelling’ (The Blaze)

The director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement clashed with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) over the Obama administration’s immigration policies during a Tuesday House Judiciary Committee hearing. Things eventually got so tense that ICE Director Sarah Saldana actually had to ask Gohmert to stop “yelling.”

Gohmert noted that Judge Andrew Hanen has temporarily halted President Barack Obama’s executive actions to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportations — and then accused the administration of misleading the judge in its past approval of benefits for eligible immigrants.
