Woe! Chris Wallace squirms in his chair earlier today on Fox News Sunday. You see, former DHS Secretary, Jeh Johnson ‘freely admits’ they detained and separated children in 2014! Meanwhile, the entire mainstream media narrative just fell apart.
So it’s true. Children have been detained and separated from their families at the border since Obama was in office. President Trump was once again, telling the truth. And the crooked media, was spinning a falsehood. (VIDEO BELOW.)
In a STUNNING ADMITTANCE Johnson tells it like it was in 2014!
Moreover, Johnson showcases the Democrats and the media’s attempt at creating a “Nazi” like picture of the Trump administration in 2018.
The truth is, it was in 2014 when the enforcement of the law to separate illegal immigrant children from their parents and illegal unaccompanied minors into jail like conditions began.
Wallace starts the segment and says, “Let’s look, because you mentioned it. At how the Obama administration and you as Secretary of Homeland Security handled this back in 2014 when there was also a spike in children, most of them unaccompanied coming across the border. You started jailing entire families.” (VIDEO BELOW.)
Chris then says, “In some cases, not a lot, but in some, you separated children from their parents in these pictures that we are putting up, from 2014, show pictures of unaccompanied minors in effect jail situations. As you look back on that, did you handle it so well?”
Well, well, well. So the Obama administration started separating children from their families on the border.
Jeh Johnson replies, “Well, Chris, without a doubt the images and the reality from 2014 just like 2018 are not pretty. And so, we expanded family detention. We had, then ,34,000 beds for family detention. Only 95 of 34,000 equipped to deal with families.” (VIDEO BELOW.)
The former DHS Secretary says, “So, we extended it. I freely admit it was controversial. We believed it was necessary at the time. I still believe it is necessary to name a certain capability for families. We can’t have catch and release and in my three years we deported, or repatriated or returned over a million people.”
“But, again, you can deal with this on the border. You can try different things. We did not want to go so far as to separate families,” Johnson says. “But unless we deal with the underlying causes that are motivating people to come here in the first place we are going to continue to bang our heads against the wall on this issue.”
It appears the DNC, Time Magazine and the mainstream media owe the White House and the American people an apology. Or was their goal achieved?
