Yesterday it was Iowa Rep. Steve King who got all nutty by using the tragedy of the Boston Marathon bombings as his “proof” that immigration security needs to be tighter.

Today King was joined by Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert (R). This is what Salon reported today:

Louie Gohmert joined Steve King in warning against passing immigration reform too hastily in the wake the of attacks in Boston, saying that he’s worried that “radical Islamists” could pose as Hispanics and do “copycat things.”

Speaking on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, Gohmert, R-Texas, said: “We know Al Qaeda has camps over with the drug cartels on the other side of the Mexican border. We know that people are now being trained to come in and act like Hispanic [sic] when they are radical Islamists. We know these things are happening. It is just insane not to protect ourselves, and make sure that people come in as most people do … They want the freedoms we have.”

It’s #NoMames, Part Two.
