Obama Official Speaks Truth About Migration Crisis

Jeh Johnson has been especially candid about his service record while head of DHS, admitting that the current problems at the border have been festering for years. The Washington Examiner reports:

Former President Barack Obama’s secretary of homeland security said the practice of putting migrants in cages after being detained by authorities did not start when Donald Trump became president.

“Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages, whatever you want to call them, were not invented on January 20, 2017, okay?” Jeh Johnson said at the Aspen Ideas Festival last Friday.

“But during that 72-hour period, when you have something that is a multiple — like four times — of what you’re accustomed to in the existing infrastructure, you’ve got to find places quickly to put kids. You can’t just dump 7-year-old kids on the streets of McAllen or El Paso,” he continued. “And so these facilities were erected … they put those chain link partitions up so you could segregate young women from young men, kids from adults, until they were either released or transferred to HHS.”

Johnson’s comments are in line with other similar statements made by Thomas Homan, who was the executive associate director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement during Obama’s administration.

President Trump is committed to enforce border laws, but in a humane way provided Congress appropriate adequate funding.

The media spreads its propaganda under the guise of news to control the thought process of the uniformed. Once you realize this you are set free.
Sometime back in the 90’s I began to tell people , you got to watch these news people sometimes they distort the news or just outright fabricate. I would get the deer in the headlights look then.

John Braggs Actually JFK didn’t put anyone on the moon,Kennedy died in 1963,the moon landing didn’t take place until 1969,if anyone put anyone on the moon,it was Richard Nixon who was in office at the time,but it is true that Obama allowed a lot of sexually perverse activity to occur and put into place laws that promoted sexual perversion and baby killings.

Well, well, well…..finally the truth which we already know but the Dumbascraps continue to push their agenda and the lemmings continue to follow the lies over the cliff. However Johnson didn’t mention the reason for it which is allowing the illegals in so they can get the power to control the rest of us. We have no objection to folks coming in as long as it’s legally and they’re properly vetted. Pack ’em up and send them home.

I know all this. What I don’t know is what’s going on down at the border now? And is mexico upholding their end of the bargain or did they do like all the other socialist nations do and make a promise that they had no intention of keeping?

Yes, Mexico is keeping their side of the deal. Border is way overcrowded from so many who keep showing up, just not as many as before Mexico started keeping their end of the bargain. If you see AOC be sure and tell her if she is so upset about the crowded conditions, why did she say Trump made up the emergency? Why did she vote against $$$ for border emergency and now act all freaked out? Why did she lie? Ask her that.
