Obama’s Homeland Security Director: Democrat Presidential Candidates Are Open Borders – It’s Unworkable and Unwise
New York Post cover after Democrats push free healthcare for illegal aliens.
Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson did not hold back in a recent interview on the current crop of Democrat presidential candidate.
Jeh Johnson called the proposed Democrat plan of decriminalizing illegal immigration a policy of “open borders.
From The Washington Post:
During last week’s debate, presidential candidate Julián Castro proposed decriminalizing illegal border crossings — a position other Democrats in the race rapidly adopted. …
“That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders,” said Jeh Johnson, who ran the Department of Homeland Security during President Barack Obama’s second term. “That is unworkable, unwise and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress, and if we had such a policy, instead of 100,000 apprehensions a month, it will be multiples of that.”
Elizabeth Warren as well as 8 of the 10 Democrats on last Thursday night’s debate stage including Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Pete Buttigieg have all embraced the radical position of decriminalizing illegal immigration.
Compounded with their support of illegal immigrants receiving tax-payer funded, government-run health care, Democrats have made it known that they place the interests of illegal immigrants before the interests of American citizens.
The RNC reported: It’s not a Republican talking point that Democrats are the party of open borders. Obama’s DHS secretary says that is exactly what they are for.
