Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson wouldn’t have to be asked who Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown are. And he would have the answer in a flash. But don’t ask him who Kathy Steinle is.
“Has the administration reached out to the Steinle family, to your knowledge?” Rep. Steve Chabot asked Johnson.
“To who?” Johnson replied.
“To the family of the woman who brutally murdered by this individual who had committed seven different felonies in four different states and to my understanding had been deported, kept coming back, has the administration reached out to that family?” Chabot asked again.
“I’m sorry, I don’t know the answer to that question sir,” Johnson said.
“I wish someone would reach out to us,” Brad Steinle said during an interview on The Kelly File last night.
And of course Jeh Johnson doesn’t want a crackdown on sanctuary cities.
“He declined to criticize sanctuary cities themselves, and told Congress not to try to pass laws forcing cooperation, saying it could conflict with the Constitution, and it won’t win over the hearts of reluctant communities.”
Now suppose these were bakeries that were refusing to bake gay wedding cakes.. then SWAT teams would be breaking down their doors.
Sooner or later, every city will be forced to register gay marriages. But don’t ask those cities to turn over illegal alien criminals to the authorities. That’s against the Constitution.
Obama Inc claims that states enforcing immigration law is against the Constitution because it challenges the Federal government while the Federal government forcing states to turn over illegal aliens… also violates the Constitution. Apparently this is the La Raza Constitution.
Jeh Johnson has pandered on this issue before.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday that he will not scrap a program that scours prisons and jails for illegal immigrants to deport, but did promise adjustments to make it more palatable to mayors and governors who have balked at cooperating with the Secure Communities program.
Mr. Johnson said he will try to work with “sanctuary” cities and states to assuage their concerns. The approach is starkly different from the one the administration took with Arizona, in which the Justice Department sued to halt the state’s stricter enforcement law.
Mr. Johnson said he doesn’t want agents trying to capture illegal immigrants at courthouses because those who try to access government services deserve special protection at such facilities.
There you go. There’s one law for liberal policy agendas and another for conservatives.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
