Obama Officials Say Trump is Right About The Crisis On The Border

Published

on

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.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
