From The Hill:
Top former Obama administration officials are warning Democratic presidential candidates to back off from their proposals to decriminalize border crossings, saying that it’s bad policy and a surefire general election loser that gives President Trump an opening on immigration.
In an op-ed in The Washington Post this week, former Obama Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said that decriminalization would attract hundreds of thousands of new migrants to the southern border. He described the proposal as “tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders.”
“We can’t go too far to the left for what people could describe as open borders,” said Marsha Catron, a former deputy assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security during the Obama administration.
Or just doing our best to pretend like we’re Lefties … did it work?

The Democratic candidates have already gone so far left that they are embarrassing! Also they are against "The Word of God". That should tell a person everything they would want to know. If a person wants to know, not at all hard to see!!

We’re seeing a split on the Left between true Democrats and actual socialists … scary stuff indeed.
