Obama’s DHS Chief Irritated That Trump Has “Scared Off” Illegal Immigrants
By Andrew Posted on 3 days ago


Leave it to the washed up denizens of Barack Obama to find a way to admit that President Donald Trump has been much more effective in enforcing U.S. law than his predecessor and to make it seem like that’s a BAD thing. Somehow, former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson did just that in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo last week, when he reluctantly said that it was true that illegal immigration numbers were down sharply under the new administration. Yes, yes, it’s true, Johnson admitted…but we shouldn’t be celebrating.

“Illegal migration on our southern border has gone down since this president has been in office, basically because, through his rhetoric, he scared off a lot of women and children in Central America who’d rather stay in their desperate circumstances, or just migrate to Mexico and stop there,” Johnson said.

Uh-huh. You see how he sneakily put that old Obama line in there – women and children? That’s all the Syrian refugees were supposed to consist of, too, as you’ll recall. Of course, we saw in San Bernardino just how much damage a poor, defenseless woman can cause when she sets her psychotic mind to it. And furthermore, women and children are just as much – if not more – of a drain on our welfare system as any man. Or, as the Obama administration called them, unaccompanied minors. Minors with full, bushy beards, neck tattoos, and rap sheets a mile long.



Implicit in Johnson’s criticism of Trump was a tacit admission that the Obama administration failed to enforce the laws of the land, an admission that Johnson justified with a tug on the heartstrings.

“I believe that we have to enforce our immigration laws consistent with our values and consistent with humanity,” he said. “At the end of the day, when you enforce immigration laws, you have to be able to look at yourself in the mirror, look your own family in the eye, recall the women and children who are desperate, to say, ‘I did my best to enforce the law consistent with our priorities and consistent with our values.’ I hope that the current administration does not lose sight of that.”

Yes, we’re all familiar with the Presidential Oath of Office, which calls on the inaugurated one to faithfully carry out the law, except in such cases that the law conflicts with his personal idea of what it “humane” and what is not.

Every once in a while, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror and realize just how lucky we are that Trump came along and steered this country out of the lawless, self-destructive path it’s been on for eight long years.

This is an excellent illustration of how these idiot leftist/liberals think. It is preposterous to suggest that enforcing US laws -- by preventing others from entering our country illegally -- is immoral. We are a nation of laws. Entering our country illegally is . . . illegal, hence in violation of the law. We field enforcement officers to . . . enforce the laws. The solution to the plight of people in disadvantaged regions is to improve their local conditions. It is on them, not on us.


I saw a comment yesterday by a conservative intellectual who said that the tendency of leftist, liberal politics is to destroy all affluence and individual freedoms. I think this was voiced by Roger Kimball who was moderating a forum at Yale University in 2014 on the 50th anniversary of the publication of the magisterial book "Suicide of the West" by James Burnham. I think this comment is on point. If we do not enforce borders, and if we grant welfare benefits and social amenities on equal terms with all citizens and non-citizens alike, we all ride down to third world standards of living: the death of affluence. By the same token, it is clear that the leftists/liberals are chipping away at freedoms one by one. They want to dismiss the second amendment freedom. They have lawyered away the tenth amendment (powers not explicitly granted to the federal government by the constitution are reserved to the states or to local governments). They have lawyered away the freedom to refuse to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. They have lawyered away the opportunity of the Boy Scouts to self-determine a creed and ideal of behaviour FOR ITS MEMBERS. Others can feel free to continue enumerating the manifold ways leftists/liberals are constraining our freedoms.
