So much for hospitality

This GOP congressman wants police to arrest DREAMers at the State of the Union

More than 20 DREAMers are expected to attend tonight's State of the Union address. If Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) gets his way, they'll all be arrested.

Gosar announced on Twitter that he has asked U.S. Capitol Police and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to "consider checking identification of all attending the State of the Union address and arresting any illegal aliens in attendance." Several congressional Democrats have invited DREAMers — undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States by their parents as young children — as their guests for tonight's address.

Capitol Police and the Justice Department have yet to comment on the prospect of arresting the invited guests. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) did, however, express his disapproval with Gosar's idea.
