Obama-era officials are praising Trump’s border security policies.
Obama’s former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson spoke out in favor of Trump’s national emergency declaration at the southern border. Johnson declared that we are “truly in a crisis” at the border and has broken from from the Democratic Party line of not acknowledging this growing crisis.
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, Johnson gave his thoughts about the current border crisis:
A little bit of context here. When I was in office in Kirstjen Nielsen’s job, at her desk, I’d get to work around 6:30 in the morning, and there would be my intelligence book sitting on my desk, the PDB, and also the apprehension numbers from the day before.
Johnson continued, “My staff would tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehension the day before, that was a relatively good number, and if it was above 1,000, it was a relatively bad number, and I was going to be in a bad mood the whole day.”
The former DHS secretary concluded, “On Tuesday there were 4,000 apprehensions. I know that a thousand overwhelms the system.”
Johnson was not the only ex-Obama official to praise Trump’s border wall. Obama’s Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan lauded Trump for his border wall push during an interview with the Law & Crime Network, declaring that “The wall works.”
Democratic party presidential hopefuls have done everything they can to downplay this crisis so far.
In February, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker asserted in an interview with Fox News that “If there’s any emergency at the border, it’s the one he created, the crisis he created”, pinning the blame on Donald Trump.
Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke told NBC News that he would take down the existing border wall if he were in power because it hasn’t “in any demonstrable way made us safer.”
The Washington Examiner reports that Kamala Harris called Trump’s emergency declaration a “TV stunt”.
Even religious figures like Pope Francis have attacked Trump’s wall plans stating that “Walls, however, are against communication, they are for isolation and those who build them will become prisoners.”
Political elites can complain about Trump’s immigration policies all they want, but everyday American voters have a different view on this issue.
BLP reported how the vast majority of voters place immigration as their #1 issue for the 2020 elections. A look across the pond shows how dangerous mass migration be, with migrants having trouble assimilating and certain areas turning into crime-infested slums.
With Trump securing $1 billion from the Pentagon for his wall, immigration talks will continue to heat up. However, any meaningful reforms will have to wait until 2020 due to the split Congress.
For Trump’s reforms to come into fruition, he will need to have both chambers of Congress in line.
CNN Journos Are Throwing a Fit About a Trump Administration Official’s Pro-Western Civilization Comments
On June 29, 2020, writers Andrew Kaczynski and Nathan McDermott penned an op-ed at CNN attacking Merritt Corrigan, a deputy White House liaison at the US Agency for International Development, for some of the tweets she made between 2019 and 2020.
They claimed that she “has a history of inflammatory rhetoric aimed at refugees, the LGBTQ community and women.” CNN’s KFile analyzed several of the tweets from Corrigan’s account, “which were captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.”
Corrigan was previously employed at Hungary’s Embassy in the U.S.where she tweeted in support of nationalist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on multiple occasions. She described him as “the shining champion of Western civilization,” according to ProPublica, which covered a number of Corrigan’s tweets on June 5.
Corrigan was also attacked for some of her anti-mass migration tweets. “Mass deportations when?,” Corrigan tweeted back in October 2019, linking to a 2010 article in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Germany’s multicultural experiment was a failure.
Corrigan also questioned radical feminist narratives, which bothered the hall monitors in the mainstream media. She was singled out in particular over a comment that she made in response to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s statement in support of homosexual marriage during a Democratic presidential townhall.
“This sick statement by Warren, which glibly mocks a real crisis happening in our society, is exactly why women shouldn’t be in office. They will always advocate for themselves at the expense of men, and revel in it,” she tweeted back in October 2019.
In another tweet from that same month, Corrigan bashed conservative radio host Michael Knowles for sharing a picture of himself with a drag queen.
“Right wing gatekeepers have made it abundantly clear that their allegiance is to Satan and those who carry out his agenda of appalling sexual perversion over those who question the liberal status quo,” Corrigan tweeted.
It’s funny how outlets like CNN will obsess over people’s social media history, while turning a blind eye to journalists on the Left like the Washington Post’s global opinions editor Karen Attiah who recently declared that “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.’ And not calling for revenge,” in a tweet she quickly deleted.
CNN would be better served by actually reporting on the news and doing real journalism.
But that that might be too much to ask from a purveyor of Fake News like CNN which is more interested in perpetuating political correctness and distorting political developments to fit their globalist agenda.
