Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) took Department of Homeland Sec. Jeh Johnson to task for what he highlighted as the Obama administration’s immigration enforcement failures during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday.
“I believe Sen. [Chuck] Grassley (R-IA) is correct to say that we see a lack of will in your department. Before you took the office and from the president, frankly, on down,” Sessions began.
The Alabama lawmaker, who has been among the most vocal critics of the Obama administration’s immigration policies, offered a laundry list of frustrations with the Obama administration’s immigration enforcement efforts.
“Deportations are down 41 percent over three years. Twenty-five percent over last year,” Sessions said. “160,000 criminal aliens are on the streets and now you announced a program to fly people from Central American countries who apply for refugee and parole status in those countries to the United States of America at the expense of the U.S. taxpayers,” Sessions said, in reference to a recently created program.
