In his 1/29/15 speech, Johnson said "We've established a new program of deferred action for undocumented adults. Those who have committed no serious crimes, have been in this country since January 1, 2010, and have children here who are citizens or lawful permanent residents, are eligible to be considered for this program. The reality is that these immigrants are not enforcement priorities. Therefore, we want to encourage these people to come out of the shadows, be accountable, pay taxes, and get on the books, so we know who they are," Johnson said.
He also admitted that DHS is encouraging further illegal immigration from Central America! "We are continuing aggressive public awareness messaging in Central America and elsewhere. This "know the facts" campaign was launched on January 5th. On January 21, I wrote another open letter in the Spanish language press to repeat the message," he said.
Here are excerpts:
Fixing our Broken Immigration System
We are taking steps to fix our broken immigration system. Some say we should have waited for Congress to act. Let's not forget that we did wait, for years, and Congress did not act. The President continues to urge Congress to finish the job and pass a comprehensive, bipartisan immigration bill. He is willing to work with any serious partner � Democrat, Republican or Independent � who wants to fix the system. In the meantime, we must improve the system within our existing legal authorities. We did that, and the President announced these set of reforms on November 20, 2014.
We've established a new program of deferred action for undocumented adults. Those who have committed no serious crimes, have been in this country since January 1, 2010, and have children here who are citizens or lawful permanent residents, are eligible to be considered for this program. The reality is that these immigrants are not enforcement priorities. Therefore, we want to encourage these people to come out of the shadows, be accountable, pay taxes, and get on the books, so we know who they are.
Our executive actions also prioritize the removal of felons over families, includes a number of measures to further secure the border, discontinue the Secure Communities program and replace it with a new program, streamline legal immigration to boost the economy and promote naturalization, support military families, and enhance options for foreign-born high-skilled workers, entrepreneurs and businesses.
Strengthening Border Security
We are taking a number of steps to further secure the border. I'm on a mission to strengthen border security, and to also replace public misperception with the facts.
In June 2013, Pew Research conducted a survey and asked the following question: "Just your best guess -- compared with ten years ago, do you think the number of immigrants entering the U.S. illegally today is higher, lower, or about the same?" Amazingly, 55% of respondents answered higher, and only 15% answered lower.
The reality is on this slide. In the year 2000, apprehensions on the southern border-- which are a direct indicator of total attempts to cross the border illegally -- exceeded 1.6 million. Apprehensions on the southern border have dropped considerably since then, to around 400,000 a year in recent years. Apprehensions are in fact at their lowest rate since the 1970s.
These numbers are no doubt partially due to economic conditions and trends in the U.S., Mexico and Central America, but also due to the very large investment this Nation has made in border security over the last 15 years. Today�s Border Patrol has the largest deployment of people, vehicles, aircraft, boats and equipment along the southwest border in its 90-year history. This includes a budget of $3.5 billion, a total of 23,000 personnel, and 20,833 border patrol agents.
Without a doubt, we had a challenge last summer, with the unprecedented number of unaccompanied children and others who crossed a narrow area of our southern border into the Rio Grande Valley, in search of a family member and a better life in this country. We responded aggressively with more people and resources on the southern border. Beginning in mid-June the numbers of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border declined sharply, and are now at far lower levels.
But, we are not declaring "mission accomplished."
The President and I are committed to building an even more secure border, and a smart strategy to get there. Much of illegal migration is seasonal. The poverty and violence that are the �push factors� in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador still exist. The economy in this country � a �pull factor� -- is getting better. There is still more we can and should do.
We are pursuing a risk-based strategy for border security. This means focusing resources where our intelligence and our surveillance tell us the threats exist. This is a smart, effective and efficient use of taxpayer resources.
There are more aircraft, surveillance, radar technology and other equipment that our experts have determined we need, which we have requested for FY 2015.
In December we opened a new family facility in Dilley, Texas that will house up to 2,400 individuals.
We are continuing aggressive public awareness messaging in Central America and elsewhere. This "know the facts" campaign was launched on January 5th. On January 21, I wrote another open letter in the Spanish language press to repeat the message.
Finally, we have launched a Department of Homeland Security-wide Southern Border Campaign Plan. We are doing away with the stove-piped approach to border security. Instead, we are putting to use, in a combined and coordinated way, the assets and personnel of CBP, ICE, CIS, the Coast Guard, toward the goal of border security.
We have established three new Department task forces, each headed by a senior official of this Department, to direct the resources of CBP, ICE, CIS and the Coast Guard in three discrete areas. The first, Joint Task Force-East, will be responsible for our maritime ports and approaches across the southeast. The second, Joint Task Force-West, will be responsible for our southwest land border and the West coast of California. And the third will be a standing Joint Task Force for Investigations to support the work of the other two Task Forces.
During his speech, Johnson also said that "I cannot print money", that the private sector needs greater criminal and civil liabilty when they share private information with DHS, and that they are particularly concerned about lone wolf extremists on the internet.
DHS noted Johnson's "remarks were at an event hosted by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Aspen Institute Homeland Security Group." They also urged people to "Join the Conversation! We will be using #DHSin2015 for comments on social media."
