Obama-era Department of Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson slammed Democrats for their “open borders” push to decriminalize illegal immigration. “That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders,” Jeh Johnson told The Washington Post. “That is unworkable, unwise, and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress, and if we had such a policy, instead of 100,000 apprehensions a month, it will be multiples of that.” Indeed. We only have to look at the migrant crisis in Europe for a preview of what might happen here should Democrat policies prevail.

An Obama-era Department of Homeland Security chief is warning Democratic presidential candidates to cool their push to decriminalize illegal border crossings, saying such a move would be tantamount to “open borders” policy and lead to hundreds of thousands more people flooding into the U.S. every month.

“That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders,” Jeh Johnson told The Washington Post.

“That is unworkable, unwise and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress, and if we had such a policy, instead of 100,000 apprehensions a month, it will be multiples of that,” he said.

In May, authorities apprehended or encountered more than 144,000 border crossers, representing a stunning increase over the past several months.
