Obama’s DHS Secretary Protested at Georgetown Over Immigration

Obama’s DHS Secretary Protested at Georgetown Over Immigration

Too conservative on the issue to speak on campus.

Campus culture has drifted so far to the left that students at Georgetown are protesting Obama’s secretary of homeland security Jeh Johnson, who’s slated to deliver the commencement address for their School of Foreign Service.

Students have decided Johnson is too conservative on immigration to speak at the university.

Blake Neff reports at the Daily Caller:

The Latest Campus Speaker Denounced As Too Conservative Is An Obama Cabinet Secretary

Students at Georgetown University are protesting against the school’s choice of commencement speaker because he enforced the law by deporting illegal immigrants.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson is scheduled to deliver the commencement address May 21 to graduates of Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service. Some student activists are dismayed by Johnson’s selection, because his role as secretary places him in charge of monitoring the country’s borders and deporting illegal immigrants.

“The DHS, under the supervision of Johnson, has deported millions of people and has separated them from their families,” critics say in an event page created on Facebook. Protesters organized by UndocuHoya, a group that advocates for illegal immigrants on campus, assembled to deliver a letter of protest to Georgetown administrators Monday afternoon.

The letter, also published on Medium, suggests that Johnson’s speech would make Georgetown an unsafe place for illegal immigrants.

Here’s the Facebook message referenced above:

Students at Georgetown are writing a letter express our frustration over the selection of Jeh Johnson, US Secretary of Homeland Security, as a commencement speaker. The DHS, under the supervision of Johnson, has deported millions of people and has separated them from their families.

Johnson is not a hardliner on deporting illegal immigrants. In the video below, which is from the Department of Homeland Security’s official YouTube channel, Johnson addresses the issue of immigration and sounds like any other progressive currently serving in the Obama administration.

Watch the whole thing but if you’re pressed for time, immigration comes up at the 2:50 mark:

Here’s a parting thought which illustrates the selective outrage of young progressives.

Do these Georgetown students know who Johnson works for? Would they protest Obama himself if he was slated to speak on their campus? Probably not.

How funny.

Of course, this is part of a Collectivist tactic where “officials” are pushed to the more radical positions by their “critics”.

Any time someone is found guilty of breaking a law and are then consequently sent to prison aren’t they also being separated from their family?

    Yup, but woory not. The left has a plan to fix that, too.

    See, e.g.,

    “Mass Incarceration
    “The program to end mass incarceration at the ACLU focuses on reducing the use of the criminal justice system to address social issues and substantially reducing the number of people behind bars.”

Do these Georgetown students know who Johnson works for? Would they protest Obama himself if he was slated to speak on their campus? Probably not.

If the right person/people told them they needed to protest, to make the world more fair, they would. In the demented world of the SJW, there are no targets that are off limits.

More abortion (i.e. “final solution”) of wholly innocent human lives. Expand the exodus from second and third-world nations. And generally anti-native policies all around. The Left will never change. It just recycles and relabels.

Anyone who truly believes that DHS has deported “millions” of illegal aliens under Jeh Johnson is too damn ignorant and gullible to be in college.

Anyone who’s an SJW is to damn ignorant and gullible to be in college. They’re all a bunch of brain dead fools who just want to be in the “in” crowd and can’t form an original thought to save their life.

It would be fun to have them apply for their dream job only to find out an illegal immigrant was given that job so as to meet federal quotas.
