Jeh Johnson served as head of the Department of Homeland Security during the Obama years.
Johnson basically just stabbed all Democrats in the back and agreed with President Trump that there is a crisis at the border.
Weird to hear from a Democrat, huh?
From Free Beacon:
The Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday on Fox & Friends that the influx of immigrant caravans at the Mexico border was “a crisis by any measure.”
“This is, in my view, having owned this problem for three years, first, I know what a thousand a day looks like. I saw it myself at border patrol holding stations,” Johnson said. “I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like. It must overwhelm the system.”
“I think we have to get away from Democrat vs. Republican, crisis vs. no crisis. This is a crisis by any measure, and the solution inevitably is bipartisan. It has to be bipartisan. It requires a change in law,” Johnson said.
Johnson’s statement on Thursday echoes what he has said recently.
Last month, Johnson told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that “we are truly in a crisis” at the border.
Obama-appointed judges are still wreaking havoc on the United States.
What’s worse is they don’t seem to care.
Judge Richard Seeborg was nominated by 44 in 2009.
On Monday, Seeborg blocked President Trump’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico while they wait for an immigration judge to hear their case.
From AP News:
A U.S. judge decided Monday to block the Trump administration’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for an immigration court to hear their cases, but the ruling is on hold for several days.
Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco granted a request on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America and legal advocacy groups to halt the practice while their lawsuit moves forward, but he held off on enforcing his decision until Friday to give the government a chance to ask an appeals court for a review.
The policy lacks sufficient protections to ensure migrants don’t face “undue risk to their lives or freedom” in Mexico, the judge said. Seeborg also said a law that President Donald Trump’s administration cited as its authority to send back migrants does not apply to asylum seekers such as those who sued.
It was not immediately clear whether the administration would ask an appeals court to put the ruling on hold. The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment.
The launch of the policy in January at the nation’s busiest border crossing — in San Diego — marked an unprecedented change to the U.S. asylum system, government officials and asylum experts said. Families seeking asylum typically have been released in the U.S. with notices to appear in court.
Judiical Watch‘s Tom Fitton weighed in, noting how this move could “will worsen the border crisis”…
This is an astonishing abuse of power by another anti-@RealDonaldTrump judge (appointed by Barack Obama). Allows foreign nationals in Mexico to use courts to rewrite U.S. law. This decision, if not set aside immediately, will worsen the border crisis.
