Tea Party Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is sharing a few of her beliefs about the children coming across the southern border of the US.
Michele Bachmann traveled to the southern border of the U.S. this weekend with fellow Tea Party Congressman Steve King, and then appeared on talk shows to share her views on the humanitarian crisis.
The Tea Party Congresswoman from Minnesota, before traveling to Texas on Friday, spoke with Dave Garrison of The Faith & Liberty Talk Show at Ohio Christian University.
“People from Yemen, Iran, Iraq and other terrorist nations are making their way up through America’s southern border because they see that it’s a green light, they can easily get in,” Bachmann warned. “Not only people with potentially terrorist activities, but also very dangerous weapons are going to cross our border in addition to very dangerous drugs, and also life-threatening diseases, potentially including Ebola and other diseases like that.”
During the 2012 presidential race, Bachmann stoked irrational fears that vaccinations cause autism.
The Minnesota Congressman also claimed that many of the child migrants are violent gang members.
She also claimed that the President is “transforming America into a Marxist economic model so that government redistribution of wealth has maximum power and the citizens have minimum power."
“What he is doing by opening up this southern border, frankly, he is establishing a permanent political class that will vote for a big government mentality that will continually offer welfare decency programs,” Bachmann accused, adding that Obama is "willing to allow a pandemic of disease to come into our country.”

On Wednesday, Bachmann cautioned against a new crisis, claiming President Obama wants to perform medical experiments on migrant children.
"Now President Obama is trying to bring all of those foreign nationals, those illegal aliens to the country and he has said that he will put them in the foster care system," Bachmann said. "That's more kids that you can see how - we can't imagine doing this, but if you have a hospital and they are going to get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody, and a Ward of the state can't say 'no,' a little kid can't say 'no' if they're a Ward of the state; so here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can't even say 'no.' It's sick".
