In his first major address as Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson today called for "commonsense solutions" to the nation's immigration system and asked Congress to provide legal clarity on the department's role in safeguarding private-sector cyber networks.

    The only thing broken about the US immigration system is the enforcement mechanism.

    Law licenses to illegals – no jokeMr. Johnson understands that this nation granted a full law license to an illegal alien that says to the young lawyers of this nation, “You may willfully commit a crime before the public - and still receive a license to practice the law in the United States!”What ethics? What decency? What moral principles? What security for the homeland is this that abets and condones illegal immigrants to break the law in the face of the public - and then grants them license to continue in their crime?Immigration, as a legal issue, belongs to the American people, not from someone taking authority that does not belong to him and using his bully pulpit to persuade in argument as an attorney would before a tribunal.

    No.I disagree with Mr. Jeh Johnson that uses undue influence over this Department of Homeland Security, which in itself is not constitutionally-supported - to promote no deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, many of whom have really hurt American families through crimes and tortious conduct - including bribing local police to commit larceny or violence against anyone that speaks against their extremist political lobby in Washington, DC.Bar associations

    A review of the Wikipedia biography of Jeh Johnson indicates that he lacks experience in immigration law, yet he is quoted in this article regarding immigration law matters. I wonder if his Democratic Party involvement as a fundraiser was a more significant factor than his immigration law knowledge. Sadly, his comments above seem more like Democrat Party talking points - he does not mention that national adoption of E-Verify would turn off the "jobs magnet" that attracts and retains illegal aliens in the U.S.
