Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson sent a letter to leaders of Congress last week informing them that 170,000 of 200,000 of his department’s employees would continue working even if Congress refuses to allow the department to use money from the U.S. Treasury to implement President Obama’s plan to allow illegal aliens to stay in the United States and get work permits and Social Security Numbers.
Johnson told the congressional leaders that 170,000 of the department’s 200,000 employees—or 85 percent—would continue working.
Johnson letter to Congress spelling this out was inserted into the Congressional Record on Friday by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D.-N.Y.), the ranking member of the Rules Committee. Johnson’s letter was addressed to House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.
Understand this: Obama is above the law. Isn’t that called tyranny?
