Former Attorney General Eric Holder tells Open Border Leftists to Pump the Brakes

Published

on

Former Attorney General Eric Holder recently staved off attacks from the far left and their desire to completely have open borders.

He was attacked specifically for his deportation policies while serving under the Obama administration.

For the radical left, Holder’s policies were viewed as too heavy-handed.

“The emphasis there was on people who had criminal records, people who posed a danger, a public safety risk,” Holder said in defense of the Obama administration’s deportation policies during a CNN interview last week.

“Democrats have to understand that…borders mean something,” he declared.

Throughout the interview, Holder disagreed with several of the 2020 Democrat candidate proposals to decriminalize border crossings.

“No, I don’t think that’s right,” he said. “The law that is on the books has been there for about 100 years or so.”

While other Democrats pandered to the far left for more porous borders, former Vice President Joe Biden also came to the Obama administration’s defense during last week’s debate.

“What Latinos should look at, comparing this president to the president we have is outrageous, number one. We didn’t lock people up in cages,” Biden said. The former Vice President then falsely claimed that “we didn’t separate families.”

Biden also argued that Obama “did the best thing that was able to be done at the time” while praising the administration’s efforts under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Other Democratic elected officials like Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard have voiced skepticism towards the Democratic Party’s lurch leftward on the issue of open borders.

There is an electoral motive behind this shift in opinion. Several figures show that mass migration favors Democrats in the present and in the future at the polls.

Although these policies have potential electoral benefits for Democrats, they will likely have negative social consequences for the American populace at large. Mass migration is already wreaking havoc in Europe, and if the U.S. gets overzealous with its immigration policies, the same social decay could become a reality in America.
