Lawmaker Says Undocumented Children Are Gang Members

Rep. Rich Nugent (R-FL) "called undocumented immigrant children at the border not children at all but gang affiliated persons from a culture of thievery, murder, and violence," BuzzFeed reports.

Said Nugent: "A lot of these children... quote-unquote... ya know, the first caller mentioned it, ya know, they're gang members. They're gang affiliated."

He added: "Listen if you're 14, 15, 16, 17 years old and you're coming from a country that's gang infested, particularly with MS-13-types. That is the most aggressive of all the street gangs. When you have those types coming across the border, they're not children at that point. These kids have been brought up in a culture of thievery. A culture of murder, of rape. And now we are going to infuse them into the American culture. It's just ludicrous."
