Liberals never learn from history. And Obama’s Chief of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, just reminded us of that this week during an interview with CNN.
Complaining that innocent would-be illegal aliens are opting against crossing the border illegally, Johnson lamented President Trump’s hardline stance on border security with the renewed crackdown by ICE.
He explained that Trump’s policy has scared folks from trekking across the southern desert. Pardon us for stating the obvious, but isn’t that the point?
Aside from the loss of lives in the desert, to increased economic pressure, to clandestine terrorist agents, the point of having border security is to actually secure the border.
It’s a novel concept for liberals, we know.
But sometimes common sense isn’t very common, especially in light of a rogue liberal, feel-good ideology.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Jeh Johnson was the most relentless of the oxygen thieves that Barack Obama hired in his effort to turn the United States into a Third-World, Balkanized (no offense to the Balkans) sh**hole. Johnson always gave the impression of being something out of an H. P. Lovecraft story. Whatever his failures in keeping the US safe from known wolf terrorists, his biggest failure was presiding over the illegal immigration crisis that set Donald Trump on a glide path to the White House.
On Thursday, Johnson was on CNN’s “New Day” program and he gave us a refreshing dose of honesty (via Daily Caller)
When enforcing “immigration law, you have to be able to look…in the mirror,” “do it in a humane way” –Jeh Johnson https://t.co/wTSQD1HX4r

The primary value that sets the United States apart from the rest of the world is that we are allegedly, as John Adams wrote, “a government of laws and not of men.” What Johnson did was stand that on its head and substituted his own judgment for the black-letter law of the nation. And immigration was not the only place he did this. There is no doubt that our domestic counterterrorism efforts were also governed by Johnson’s personal feelings.
