DHS Secretary Resigns, or Was Fired

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 9, 2019

         THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, KIRSTJEN NIELSEN RESIGNED – OR WAS PUSHED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP – SUNDAY NIGHT. IN A CURT TWEET, THE PRESIDENT THANKED HER FOR HER SERVICE AND NAMED AN ACTING DIRECTOR HE BELIEVES WILL BE TOUGHER ON SECURING THE BORDER.

         GRANTED, NIELSEN MAY NOT HAVE BEEN THE BEST PICK FOR HER JOB, BUT SHE AND WHOEVER COMES NEXT ARE RESTRAINED BY LOOPHOLES IN IMMIGRATION LAWS THE CONGRESS REFUSES TO FIX. IT WASN’T ENTIRELY HER FAULT. HOW DO YOU HALT A TIDAL WAVE OF ILLEGAL MIGRANTS WHO NUMBERED 76,000 JUST LAST MONTH? IT DOESN’T HELP THAT THE PRESIDENT VACILLATES ON WHAT TO DO.

         DEMOCRATS REFUSE TO DO ANYTHING THAT WILL MAKE THE PRESIDENT LOOK GOOD AND WITH A HOUSE MAJORITY THEY CAN SPEND ALL OF THEIR TIME AND OUR MONEY ON INVESTIGATIONS WHILE IGNORING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, WHICH IS HAVING AND WILL HAVE LONG-TERM NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON THE NATION.

         I WOULD CALL IT SHAMEFUL IF SHAME HAD NOT LONG AGO LEFT THE BUILDING. WHAT FRUSTRATES IS THAT ALMOST ALL PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED, BUT POLITICIANS DON’T WANT TO SOLVE THEM BECAUSE THEY WILL THEN LOSE THE ISSUE. SHAMEFUL! I’M CAL THOMAS.
