During a February 8 interview with anchorwoman Dana Bash on CNN’s State of the Union, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson warned that approximately 30,000 DHS employees would be immediately furloughed if Congress doesn’t extend funding for the department beyond its current appropriation expiring on February 27. 


DHS whistleblowers say the “wealthy immigrant visa program” has been subverted to allow criminals and spies into the country, bypassing regular channels.

During the first six years of the Obama administration — from 2009 to 2014 — the U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued 982,000 new work permits to illegal immigrants or immigrants unqualified for admission, with 957,000 going to immigrants who crossed the border illegally.

During her confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on January 28, President Obama’s nominee for the Cabinet post of attorney general, Loretta Lynch, said Obama’s executive actions on immigration are legally “reasonable.”

A report posted recently on the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) website states: “CBP has seen an overall increase in the apprehension of Unaccompanied Alien Children from Central America at the Southwest Border, specifically in the Rio Grande Valley.”
