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.

New Migrant ‘Caravan’ Sets Off From Honduras, Could Arrive At US-Mexico Border Around Election Day

Are they hoping for a post-election amnesty?

A new migrant “caravan” departed the city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras on Wednesday, hoping to reach the United States in the coming weeks.

CBS News has reported that some in Central America have promoted the idea of a new caravan on social media recently. The group had been slated to leave on October 1, but travelers carrying knapsacks and minimal supplies left the staging grounds for the caravan on Wednesday night.

Initial reports indicate that 900 prospective migrants have joined the caravan. The formations have historically grown as the large groups travel through Guatemala and Mexico, although they usually taper off in size before the travelers reach the US-Mexico border.

The ‘caravan’ phenomenon reached its peak in 2018, when formations of hopeful migrants of up to 10,000 were traveling through Mexico in hopes of reaching the United States. The introduction of the Trump administration’s ‘Stay-in-Mexico’ policy has proved integral to deterring the phenomenon, requiring those who seek asylum in the country to wait in Mexico while their application is processed.

This caravan appears to be the first of its kind since the 2018 rush of caravans, and its timing is rather conspicuous. The migrants may very well arrive in the vicinity of the US-Mexico border near election day, and some may be under the impression that a tentative President-elect Joe Biden would grant them generous residence and asylum privileges.

Illegal immigration has begun to surge in recent weeks and months as an implication of the global coronavirus recession in Mexico and Central America, and the new group represents a potent health risk to those traveling within it, as well as to citizens of Guatemala, Mexico and the United States present where it is intending to travel.

They may very well be right. Biden has pledged not to deport anyone except illegal aliens who commit felonies(other than immigration violations) in the United States. This would represent a destruction of American immigration enforcement, and the caravan migrants seem only to be taking him for his word in assuming they’ll be allowed into the country.
