Obama’s DHS Secretary Rejects Democrat Candidates’ Calls for Open Borders

Jeh Johnson declared that proposals to decriminalize illegal immigration were tantamount to open borders.

2020 Democrat Presidential candidates have sought to stand out with increasingly radical and extreme pro-immigration policy proposals, and one Democrat isn’t having it. 

Jeh Johnson, the former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security during the Obama administration, has struck back against calls from leading Democrats such as Julian Castro to “decriminalize” illegal immigration. Speaking on Tuesday to the Washington Post, he said that such proposals represented a thinly veiled call for open borders.

That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders,” Johnson said about Castro’s proposal. “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.”

The former DHS Secretary correctly points out that a neutering of immigration enforcement will serve as a de facto invitation for unprecedented millions of illegal immigrants to make the dangerous and perilous journey to the United States.

Johnson went on to reject comparisons of immigration detention centers to fascist and racist concentration camps, alluding to other Democrats such as Cory Booker have called for the full on abolition of immigration detention. He correctly pointed out that the detention centers fixated upon by Democrats were not a creation of the Trump administration, having been utilized (and many of them created) during the Obama administration.

Johnson took an honest and nuanced approach in pushing back against the radical open-borders policies of Democrat candidates. But his arguments will likely fall upon deaf ears to members of his own party, who will settle for nothing less than an immigration policy that brings in anyone and everyone with a desire to immigrate to the United States.

If radical pro-immigration Democrats such as Castro succeed in taking power, the immigration enforcement policies executed by DHS under both the Obama and Trump administrations will be no more.

Hundreds of millions of immigrants from the world’s tragically poorest and most desperate countries will be free to pour into the United States, leaving it an completely unrecognizable nation to its existing citizens.

KUSHNERNOMICS: President’s Son-in-Law Pushes for More Third-World Immigrants to Boost Corporate Profits

Kushner is claiming the proposal is “merit-based.”

Published

on

President Trump’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is aggressively rehabbing his proposal to flood the United States with third-world immigrants in order to boost corporate profits.

Reports indicate that Kushner is proposing a policy that would give “merit-based” visas to third-world immigrants to fill jobs that would otherwise go to American citizens. This will not only crowd Americans out of the job market, but also lower the wages of Americans who are currently employed. He also wants to create a new immigration czar, another federal bureaucrat to add to the Washington D.C. swamp.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) is highly critical of Kushner’s plan that they believe will lead to more foreigners getting green cards, and continue significantly to the demographic winter that the U.S. is staring down.

“What they do is they take Tom Cotton’s RAISE Act, which created a merit system which the president liked, and they basically puff it out to cover more people, more types of applicant types and a huge increase in numbers,” said Jessica Vaughn, who works as director of policy studies for CIS.

Kushner’s plan is to create a new “Build America Visa” that would apply to supposedly “extraordinarily talented individuals,” but that criteria is extremely subjective. Corporatist groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce want the Trump administration to open the flood gates for mass immigration because it will be good for their bottom line.

“Every incumbent president is interested in a growing economy, particularly in an election year,” said Neil Bradley, who works as chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“One of the headwinds that the economy is facing is a lack of available workers and no sense that there’s any relief in sight,” he added.

Sadly, President Trump is following Kushner’s lead and backing away from the pledge for a truly “America First” immigration policy that he made on the campaign trail in 2016.

“To build on these historic gains, we are working on legislation to replace our outdated and randomized immigration system with one based on merit, welcoming those who follow the rules, contribute to our economy, support themselves financially and uphold our values,” Trump said.

“We have to allow smart people to stay in our country,” Trump told Laura Ingraham of Fox News last month. “We don’t have enough of them. And we have to be competitive with the rest of the world too.”

Big League Politics has reported on the many times that Kushner has pushed for mass immigration in the past:

McClatchy DC reported on Kushner’s scheming with individuals from the Koch-affiliated Libre Initiative, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and other open border groups as he exploited the government shutdown crisis to push amnesty…

The situation worsened in February when Kushner allowed globalist organizations to dominate talks on immigration reform. Breitbart News exposed organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, George W. Bush Center, and several trade groups pushing for cheap labor were given seats at the table while patriotic, ‘America First’ organizations were sidelined from discussions. As the lobbying continued, Trump’s rhetoric has gotten weaker and weaker on immigration.

“We need an immigration policy that helps all Americans thrive, flourish, prosper. We need an immigration policy that’s going to be great for our corporations and our great companies,” Trump said during an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. “We need an immigration policy where people coming into our country can love our country and love our fellow citizens.”

Kushner has been too incompetent to get these measures passed up until this point, but he remains steadfastly determined to enact globalist immigration policies that will hurt the American worker immeasurably.
