DHS Chief Confirms WH Knew Of Border Crisis In January

From the Washington Free Beacon:

DHS Anticipated 60,000 Illegal Child Border Crossers in January

DHS secretary confirms administration anticipated surge in illegal immigration

By Bill Gertz | July 24, 2014

ASPEN, Colo. — DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson confirmed Thursday that the Obama administration in January anticipated a surge of some 60,000 illegal children crossing the Southwest Border.

The hell you say. Well, then why on earth didn’t Obama do something to stop the flood? (This is a rhetorical question.) By the way, where was the news media? (That is another rhetorical question.)

So far, only two cases among the flood of illegal immigrants this year raised concerns that terrorists were entering the United States, Johnson said during remarks to a security conference.

"Only two" terrorists may have entered the US this year? What are we worried about? And we can be sure that the Border Patrol has not missed any others.

Johnson recalled visiting a detention center in Brownsville, Texas, in January where 82 percent of a group of 995 detainees were from 30 different countries, most from Central America…

“In January, in our budget process, we estimated that we were going to have 60,000 unaccompanied kids coming in,” [Johnson said during remarks at the Aspen Security Forum] said, noting that resources for the influx were “ramped up.” …  The comments by the DHS secretary indicate the Obama administration had months of warning about the problem.

What "problem"? The Obama administration doesn’t see this influx of future Democrat voters as a problem.

Conservative news outlets reported in June that DHS sought bids for a contract Jan. 29 seeking help in handling 65,000 unaccompanied alien children…

Johnson said the flood of children declined when many were deported…

Which is the bigger lie? That the flood has declined, or that many were deported?

Johnson said in early May he telephoned officials of Central American countries to try and stem the illegal migrant flows.

Really? Did he ever try telephoning Obama? (We are kidding, of course.)

Since then, DHS has been mobilizing resources and the number of border crossers has declined…

If border crossings have declined at all, it’s almost certainly due to the fact that it is a too hot this time of year to be crossing deserts.

Pressed for details on the potential entry of terrorists, Johnson said those that are apprehended are closely scrutinized for indicators. “And if there are indicators somebody might be motivated by terror, that is a fact that is noted in regular reports,” he said…

What a laugh. How much time do these agents have to assess any of these illegals? Three minutes?

So far, authorities have detected “one or two potentially problematic cases” indicating a terrorist connection, he said…

You can be sure that where there is one there is a dozen — that they missed. If not more.
