When a few of us met with Representative Gosar two weeks ago, he reminded us that the terrorist assassination plot on the Ambassadors for Israel and Saudi Arabia in 2011 was deployed via the hire of a Mexican drug cartel sicario, who entered the USA via the southern border. He was not apprehended until reaching Washington, D.C.
