Jeh Johnson: Trump’s ‘Rhetoric’ Has ‘Scared Off’ Illegal Immigrants

Jeh Johnson: Trump’s ‘Rhetoric’ Has ‘Scared Off’ Illegal Immigrants, Newsmax, Mark Swanson, July 20, 2017

(Good! — DM)

Former head of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said President Donald Trump’s “rhetoric” has led to a decrease of “illegal migration on our southern border.”

Trump has “scared off” a lot of illegal immigrants, Johnson told CNN’s “New Day” morning program.

“Basically because, through his rhetoric he’s scared off a lot of women and children in central America who would rather stay in their desperate circumstances or just migrate to Mexico and stop there,” Johnson said.

Though Johnson worked for a president many called the “deporter-in-chief,” he said Trump and his administration should bring more compassion to fighting illegal immigration.

“We have to enforce our immigration laws consistent with our values and consistent with humanity,” Johnson told CNN.

“At the end of the day, when you enforce immigration laws, you have to be able to look yourself in the mirror, look your own family in the eye, recall the women and children who are desperate, to say, ‘I did my best to enforce the law consistent with our priorities and consistent with our values,'” Johnson said.

“And I hope that the current administration does not lose sight of that.”

    Measure Of A Human

    The human brain
    weights three pounds.
    The human heart
    weighs eleven ounces.
    Human skin
    is seven hundredths
    of an inch thick.

    To know a persons mind
    and heart
    takes time.
    It takes time
    to parse out the
    of their soul,
    to know the content
    of their character.
    It takes an investment
    of intellect.

    Those who judge
    a person
    simply by the color
    of their skin,
    exhibit no intellect,
    no intellect

    Uh huh.. THIS typifies why so many people believe that we need two states for two peoples. This guy delivers think speak like someone who took too much LSD during his college years.

    In short, he is SO, “open minded”, that his brains have fallen out!
