DHS Head Jeh Johnson Wants Immigration To Respect Sanctity Of Family

When I mention that it is not the immigration system that is broken, but the politicians, this is what I’m referring to

(CNS News) Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, asked by President Obama to review U.S. deportation policy in the face of congressional inaction, says he is “looking for ways to more effectively enforce and administer our immigration laws.”

“Immigration laws or any other law needs to comport with American values. One of those American values is respect for human dignity. I also believe one of those American values is respect for the sanctity of the family unit,” Johnson said in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

“None of what I can do, however, is a substitute for action by Congress. We have an immigration system in this country that is not working. Comprehensive immigration reform would fix it. This is something we need to do. I’m confident that it will happen.”

It is the job of Obama and Johnson to simply enforce existing law. Period. What they mean by “more effectively enforce and administer” is to pick and choose who gets deported. All should be deported. Period. People made a choice to come to America illegally or overstay their visas. A main American value is being a Nation Of Law, not a Nation Of Men, meaning follow the law, not your feelings and whims

One of the founding principles of the US is that it is to be a nation of laws, not men. The flaws of the European history of power emanating from royalty and then passing down to the nobility and, via personal preferment, to court courtiers was all too real to the founders. (it’s a good essay in full, even though kinda whiny about Bush and Republicans)

Parents who are illegals made the choice to bring their kids and/or birth them in the U.S., creating anchor babies. They are welcome to bring them back to their home countries. These illegals don’t seem to care about our American values. They so often refuse to attempt to be a part of America. So many do not speak English, and demand that we speak their language, particularly Spanish. They steal social security numbers, causing hardship to Americans. They demand we educate them, provide them with social services, gum up our emergency rooms, even causing ERs to close. They jam up our prison system with their crimes. They put our citizens in danger with their gangs. So many tell us they do not like America, and then they demand that we give them stuff, including citizenship. Illegals have no one but themselves to blame.

As far as Obama and Johnson go, follow the law. Period. You are not royalty, nobility, nor courtiers.

    We have no mechanism for deporting American citizens (whom you slur as anchor babies) just because their parents aren’t citizens. I think you’ll have to find enough hate-filled, so-called christian conservatives (whom I slur as goat ropers) to enact a Constitutional Amendment specifically banning citizenship to children born in the US to non-citizens (whom you slur as illegals).

    Did you criticize President Bush in real time for not deporting all the undocumented workers lured to the US to keep wages low?

    How do you propose we deport the 10 to 20 million undocumented workers here? In 2012 the government spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement and made little headway. How much would you budget? At 50 workers per bus + a few guards, we’d need a few hundred thousand bus trips to the border to get rid of all the workers and their innocent children.

    These people are not “immigrants”, they are criminals. We do not owe anything to these folks. As to what to do with the children, lets just look at how the Mexican government would handle that dilemma. Besides, the kids can’t vote so the Dems are not really worried about them.

    Conservatives did not like Bush any more than the great Obama. Bush was a liberal and you should thus honor him and find no fault. It shows your bigotry in not doing so. As to getting the people back. They got here on their own, they can get back on their own. Just do what other countries do and cut off their benefits and jobs.

    I didn’t call them immigrants, although that’s exactly what they are. They are just here illegally, some 40% by overstaying a legal visa. In 2011 the US deported 400,000 of whom 55% had been convicted of a crime.

    Why would we want to take our cues from Mexico on how to handle American citizens born to illegal immigrants??? It’s unconstitutional to deport American citizens for no good reason without due process. Do you really hate them so much that you would deport 5 yr old American citizen David Hernandez because his parents lied on a kindergarten form? Could we deport you for lying or for lies your parents told?

    “Conservatives did not like Bush any more than the great Obama.” Nonsense. Conservatives hated Clinton and Obama because they are Democrats. Mr. Bush was part of the conservative tribe and is no liberal. I liked much about Mr. Bush but I disagreed with his economic/tax policies and his decision to invade and occupy Iraq. I believed either Vice President Gore or Secretary of State Kerry would have been better choices. Neither would have invaded Iraq, and there’s a slight chance that one of them may have recognized the housing bubble. In any event, their tax policies would have left us in better shape for weathering the Great Recession than Mr. Bush’s.

    How would you cut off illegal immigrants from working in the US?
