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.
Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall
President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.
The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.
“The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.
Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.
Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
