Barack Obama could not believe how one close ally just betrayed him
Barack Obama likes to claim he operated as “no drama Obama.”
Obama maintained that fiction because his aides always closed ranks and never went rogue on him.
But now things are changing and Barack Obama could not believe how one close ally just betrayed him.
There is no questioning there is a crisis on the southern border.
Border patrol’s detention facilities are overwhelmed by a flood of illegal alien invaders pouring over the border because America’s outdated asylum laws act as magnets.
But instead of addressing the issue by closing asylum loopholes, Democrats are doubling down on open borders.
Nine out of ten candidates in a recent Democrat debate raised their hand to declare their support for decriminalizing the act of illegal immigration.
This radical proposal was rejected by Barack Obama’s former head of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson who dismissed this proposition as “open borders.”
Jeh Johnson, former President Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary, warned Democrats running for president on Tuesday evening that calling for the decriminalization of illegal immigration will alienate a majority of Americans who oppose “open borders.”
Johnson made his remarks after Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) on Tuesday vowed to “virtually eliminate immigrant detention” through executive orders. Booker introduced his immigration plan days after Julian Castro, the former San Antonio mayor who served as Obama’s Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary, had his breakout moment of the 2020 election cycle during the last week’s presidential debate when he called for Section 1325 of the U.S. immigration code to be eliminated so that illegal border crossings will be decriminalized.
“That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders,” Johnson told the Washington Post. “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.”
Barack Obama could not have been happy.
Obama wants to defeat Donald Trump in 2020 more than anything.
Johnson’s comments prove the media and Democrats have been lying to the American people when both claim that the Democrats running for President do not support open borders.
Johnson’s comments are sure to play a major role in this debate going forward and Donald Trump will use them to hammer the eventual Democrat nominee as a pro-open borders radical.
