Sen. Jeff Sessions: 'DHS Is a Department in Crisis'
Sen. Sessions says that DHS Sec. Johnson should stand up to Pres. Obama's pro-amnesty policies and tell the president that immigration laws must be enforced:
"The preponderance of the evidence demonstrates that immigration enforcement in America has collapsed. Even those with criminal convictions are being released. DHS is a department in crisis. Secretary Johnson must reject the President's demands to weaken enforcement further and tell him that his duty, and his officers' duty, is to enforce the law-not break it. As Homeland Secretary, Mr. Johnson is tasked with ensuring the public safety and the rule of law. But Secretary Johnson is not meeting these duties."
He also criticized comments by the vice president and U.S. attorney general touting open-borders - and warned of the dangers to the public of the administration's stance:
"Comments from top Administration officials, such as Attorney General Holder's claim that amnesty is a civil right, or Vice President Biden's claim that those here illegally are all U.S. citizens (apparently including someone whose visa expired yesterday), demonstrate the Administration's increasing belief in an open borders policy the American public has always rejected."
"The Administration's lawless policies have not only impaired public safety but increased economic suffering for millions of vulnerable Americans by depriving them of their jobs and wages."
WHY THE MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS LOVE OBAMA:
SURGE IN MEX DRUGS THROUGH OBAMA’S OPEN BORDERS
According to the report, the amount of heroin seized at the southern U.S. border increased 232% between 2008 and 2012 — apparently the result of greater Mexican heroin production and a growing incursion by Mexican traffickers into U.S. markets. It notes that the U.S. is experiencing a “sizable increase” in the number of new heroin users.
