Full text of Congressman Brooks’ floor speech follows:

Mr. Speaker, as I speak, unprecedented tsunamis of illegal aliens swamp Customs and Border Patrol resources on America’s porous southern border with Mexico.

What is the Socialist Democrat response to this dangerous, life-threatening invasion?

Today, they help make our border security crisis worse by pushing legislation that gives illegal aliens amnesty which, in turn, entices even more illegal aliens to cross our border!

What is the result of past Socialist Democrat amnesty efforts? In the first half of Fiscal Year 2019, the number of illegal alien family units captured by Border Patrol roughly tripled over the previous year![1]

Worse yet, the number of captured illegal aliens topped 100,000 in each of March and April.[2]

Further, the number of illegal alien caravans have skyrocketed from 2 . . . 2 . . . in FY 2017, to 13 . . . 13 . . . in FY 2018, to 104 . . . 104 . . . large illegal alien caravans of 100 or more individuals totaling 17,242 illegal alien captures. . . in just the first six months of FY 2019.[3]

Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost recently testified to the Senate that, [quote] “Our apprehension numbers are off the charts. We cannot address this crisis by shifting more resources. It’s like holding a bucket under a faucet. It doesn’t matter how many buckets we have if we can’t turn off the flow.”[4] [end quote]

Thanks to Socialist Democrats’ betrayals of the American people, the crisis is not just centered on illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America.

For the first time ever, on May 31st, Border Patrol agents captured a large caravan of illegal aliens from Africa— including places like Angola, Cameroon and Congo.[5]

Also, on May 31st, Border Patrol agents captured the largest group of illegal aliens ever captured at one place: 1,036 illegal aliens at the El Paso, Texas border.[6]

Let me be very clear, illegal alien amnesty only begets and encourages more lawless, illegal alien conduct. 

Socialist Democrats’ callous disregard for American citizens plagued by illegal aliens demonstrates just how radical Socialist Democrats have become.

However, if you understand the underlying reason for the Socialist Democrats’ dangerous open borders policies, the inaction and callousness make sense.

About 70% of households with an illegal alien in them live off welfare and on the backs of American taxpayers.[7] 

Since illegal aliens are heavily dependent on welfare, once they get the amnesty and the American citizenship Socialist Democrats desperately seek to bestow, that makes them reliable Socialist Democrat voters.

After all, Socialist Democrats are the party for taking much-needed money from hard-working American taxpayers to pay for welfare for those who prefer to vote for a living rather than work for one!

Quite frankly, Socialist Democrats don’t give one twit about the thousands of dead Americans who die each year because of illegal alien homicides. 

Socialist Democrats care not one twit about the American blood on their hands.

Socialist Democrats covet political power and they see open borders, amnesty, and illegal aliens voting as the way to get it. 

That is why so many Socialist Democrat cities, like San Francisco, are passing laws that allow illegal aliens to register to vote, and vote, in American elections . . . regardless of how badly this denies American citizens control over their own governments!

This insult to American voters is so astonishing it deserves repeating. 

Socialist Democrat cities, like San Francisco, are passing laws that allow illegal aliens to register to vote, and vote, in American elections . . . regardless of how badly this denies American citizens control over their own governments!

Mr. Speaker, I yearn for the day that Socialist Democrats put the interests of American citizens above the interests of illegal aliens . . . above the Socialist Democrats’ craving for political power. 

Unfortunately, that day is not today.

Mr. Speaker, I yield back.
