Homeland Security Secretary Johnson to Defend President Obama’s Immigration Orders

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has a tough task ahead – defending President Obama’s executive order on immigration to combative Republicans.

Fox News reports that Johnson is set to appear today before the House Homeland Security Committee to discuss the executive actions.

“The reality is that, given our limited resources, these people are not priorities for removal. It’s time we acknowledge that and encourage them to be held accountable,” Johnson said in prepared testimony. “This is simple common sense.”

The aim of the executive actions is to end deportation of nearly 5 million immigrants whose children are citizens or have green card holders.

Some Democrats fear Republicans will block funding to block Obama’s actions.

“The president’s decision to bypass Congress and grant amnesty to millions of unlawful immigrants is unconstitutional and a threat to our democracy,” the Homeland Security Committee chairman, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said in a statement. “I will use every tool at my disposal to stop the president’s unconstitutional actions from being implemented, starting with this oversight hearing.”
