Former DHS Secretary Johnson Says Cages Weren’t Created Under Trump But Media’s Not Listening

This past weekend, Jeh Johnson, Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary, told both political parties that the cages at the detention centers on the southern border, that Pres. Trump is being blamed to have created didn’t start under his administration, and he gave a solid statement.

Johnson: “Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages, whatever you want to call them, were not invented on January 20, 2017, okay?”

Johnson was interviewed at the Aspen Institute when he was asked about a photo taken back in 2014.

“The photograph you’re referring to was a facility in Arizona. I recognize the photo because Governor Brewer was with me and it was during the spike. We had a lot of unaccompanied kids, we had a lot of family units and under the law one they’re apprehended by the Border Patrol, within 72-hours we have to transfer unaccompanied children to HHS and HHS then puts them in a shelter and find placement for them somewhere in the United States.

But during that 72 hour period, when you have something that is a multiple, like four times of what you’re accustomed to in the existing infrastructure, you’ve got to find places quickly to put kids. You cant just dump seven year old kids on the streets of McAllen or El Paso. And so these facilities were erected and that one I think was a large warehouse and they put those chain link partitions up so you could segregate young women from young men, kids from adults, until they were either released or transferred to HHS.”

This is just the latest example of hypocrisy from the media and the political left, so it won’t make any difference since there’s not any pretense on their part that there’s a logical basis for their criticisms of Trump. But what we should be more outraged about is their insistence on refusing to offer practical solutions to a problem that shows every sign of boiling over into to anarchy.

Is it too much to hope that a majority of voters are going to see through Democrats’ ridiculous duplicity on this issue?

Johnson will be shunned for deigning to tell the truth about what should have been yet another black messiah scandal. Democrats have their heads spinning over this issue right now.

The goalposts these Leftists keep moving must be getting heavy by now.
