Obama’s DHS Chief Threatens Migrant Flood If GOP Rejects Amnesty Bill

Post  Admin on Thu Jun 12, 2014 4:52 pm

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson suggested Thursday he would not block the growing wave of illegal immigrants who are crossing the Texas border until the GOP agrees to pass the Senate immigration rewrite that is backed by President Obama.

He twice refused to set any limit on the number of foreign youths who would be given the opportunity to ask the administration’s immigration judges for permission to live in the United States.

Johnson and several deputies delivered the threat to GOP legislators during a brief Thursday press conference.

The threat was offset by statements likely intended to reassure Americans who are worried about border security, but was backed up by repeated signals of support to Latino families who may want to send their children north in the hope they will be given permission to stay in the United States.

Border police will have an easier time dealing with the rising wave of migrant youths if the House accepts the Senate’s huge and complex immigration overhaul, Johnson warned.

The new law would add extra resources “as well as stability in the law right now,” Johnson claimed.

“If Congress acts, I believe we would know our immigration law landscape for years, if not decades,” he said.

The Homeland Security chief made that claim even though the Senate’s huge bill creates sweeping changes to long-established immigration laws, and those changes have yet to be tested in the courts.

GOP leaders have blocked the Senate’s bill, which would double the annual flow of two million guest workers and immigrants into the United States.

But Obama has relaxed immigration laws so much that a flood of youths and families from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are crossing the border in the hope of winning the administration’s permission to stay. Agency officials expect the flood to reach 90,000 by October, and 140,000 in the following 12 months.

The flow has grown rapidly, and media outlets are now saying that 1,000 people are crossing the border each day. If that rate continues, the inflow by October would exceed 150,000.
