Obama’s Secretary Defends ICE

Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has defended ICE raids as perfectly normal. The Washington Examiner reports:

Jeh Johnson, who served as secretary of homeland security under President Barack Obama, said there is nothing unusual with the upcoming raids from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that are targeting illegal immigrants who have orders for deportation.

“Deportations occur all the time. Of those who have been ordered deported by an immigration judge, hopefully after they have exhausted their appeal rights and had an opportunity to have their asylum case heard, we simply have to enforce the law, particularly if someone has been ordered deported,” Johnson said on Morning Joe Friday.

“In other words, they’ve exhausted all their appeal rights. And so, it’s important for migrants to know they have rights. But enforcement actions themselves are not extraordinary,” he added.

Johnson has been a unique voice in speaking out against Democrats’ recent rhetoric on immigration. When Democrats started to criticize the Trump administration for keeping migrants in “cages,” Johnson said that practice did not begin when Trump became president.

If Obama’s policies are considered too conservative for Democrats, then Trump’s reelection is on a good track for 2020.

Bring on the raids. The jailbird criminals keep returning boldly. Bold is their name. No respect. No respect for law, no respect for America, no respect for Americans. The Democrats aka Communists have no respect for America, its founders, or God. They need to be thrown out. It is an outrage they live off the taxes of the people they are screwing.
