Former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson reminded MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell Thursday of the Obama administrations decision to expand the number of immigrant family detentions.
A partial transcript follows:
JEH JOHNSON: Illegal migration reacts sharply to perceived changes in enforcement policy in the short term but it always reverts back longer term to the longer term trends given the underlying condition of the so-called push factors in central America. So that is what President Trump and his administration have seen now over the last year. The numbers are 40 or 50,000 per month and they are obviously very frustrated with that. So in 2014 to deal with the spike than with the families we did a number of things; including by the way, working with the government of Mexico and obtaining their cooperation on securing their southern border, uh, but we also expanded family detention, which was, I freely admit, controversial.

For the most part, the liberal news networks overlooked the immigration problems during Obozos 8 years, because he could do no wrong.
CNN is claiming right now that the “migrant kids are being beaten, abused”
which is absurd on the face of it because can you imagine the lawsuits?!
Femi/Nazis musta went ballistic when they learned the Obama admin separated kids
by (gasp) gender at a US Customs center in Nogales, Arizona, June 18, 2014.
A number of prominent liberals even an ex-Obama admin waved photos of caged children in Nogales in outrage.
The raging liberals wrongfully concluded the cages were Trump's treatment of alien children. But the photo was vintage Obama-era.
To save Obama's Halfrican *** liberals then concocted the fiction that Trump forcibly separated kids from parents.
No, because they were in on the plan. Create an amnesty plan for kids. Then flood the border with kids. But don't release them yet, wait until after Hillary is elected because can't let it become an election issue. But once she's ensconced, let 'em out and let chain migration bring all their relatives. Never lose another election.
But then Hillary lost, oh well.
Johnson may have been the worst of BHO’s cabinet appointees.
Why anyone would want to be called by a name that sounds like someone dry heaving is beyond comprehension.
First they said Donaldus was lying about the law, and no such law existed. Then they said he was violating the law that they said never existed. Reminds me of a song:
"Jeh" is in the same linguistic group as "Huh", "Duh", "Uh", and "Nuh"--the group of words most often used by urban teens as answers to questions. Part of this linguistic group includes the silent shoulder shrug, which is not pronounced.
Obamy built a lot of new holding facilities and now we have another new grant to build more. Smells like all of South and Central America are headed this way.
This should be a trump ad on tv and cable:
They did worse that overlook what he did, they made him out to be a hero during the unaccompanied children chaos. When his policy put children in chain link enclosures with space blankets and he separated families the media spun it as him saving the children; every day a new heroic O story from the border. I am surprised they didn’t give him a super hero cape.
The real story is in this thread:
Unreal that Jeh spoke truth. There’s hope out there!
MSNBC is Comcast. Dont subscribe to Comcast only to have it piss in your shoes.
They were, UNDER OBAMA
#10. Perhaps his name was a tribute to the Beatles and the last line of the song “She Loves You - Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” but they couldn’t pronounce Yeah properly.
