DHS: People Who Break Border Laws Earned Citizenship, It’s Who We Are

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson spoke on Jan. 24, 2014 at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. He said that people who have come here illegally have earned the right to citizenship.

Who says crime doesn’t pay.

There are people who have been here a long time and a case can be made for allowing them to stay, but citizenship? DREAMers are of course a different issue.

“An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows, to be accountable, to participate in the American experience, the American society,” Jeh Johnson said.

It is also, frankly, in my judgment, a matter of who we are as Americans,” he continued, “to offer the opportunity to those who want to be citizens, who’ve earned the right to be citizens, who are present in this country–many of whom came here as children–to have the opportunity that we all have to try to become American citizens.” [emphasis mine]

The message from DHS is if you come here illegally, you’ve earned the right to be a citizen and we are not very good Americans if we don’t go along with that view.

He is under the delusion that granting amnesty will somehow miraculously make us more secure. He believes that people who have managed to break our laws and sneak around successfully for 10 years are especially worthy:

“Comprehensive immigration reform would also promote a more effective and efficient system for enforcing our immigration laws, and should include an earned path to citizenship for the approximately 11-and-a-half-million undocumented immigrants present in this country, something like 86% of whom have been here almost 10 years,” Johnson said.

He claimed that enforcing immigration law was one of the main missions of DHS:

“The five core missions of the Department of Homeland Security are guarding against terrorism, securing our borders, enforcing our nation’s immigration laws, safeguarding cyberspace and critical infrastructure in partnership with the private sector, and supporting emergency preparedness and response efforts at every level,” Johnson said.

“Comprehensive immigration reform would also promote a more effective and efficient system for enforcing our immigration laws, and should include an earned path to citizenship for the approximately 11-and-a-half-million undocumented immigrants present in this country, something like 86% of whom have been here almost 10 years,” Johnson said.

That makes no sense but they keep selling it successfully.

Listen to Jeh Johnson’s comments to the conference of mayors on this link.

In the following video, the Congressman from South Texas tells Jeh Johnson, friend to Barack Obama, that he is concerned about border and port security and said that in the past two census counts, in 2000  and in 2010, there has been a more than 40% increase in population and it will repeat itself in the next census. Oh, and by the way, terrorists are coming across the border.

Listen:

When Texas is predominately a population of people who came here illegally, Texas will go blue and no Republican will ever again serve as President.

At least we have to keep laughing:
