Jenny Beth Martin: Firing DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson a “No-Brainer”

News-placeholder-3

“We call on every Republican presidential candidate to publicly commit, during tonight’s debate in Las Vegas, that if elected they will reject this absurd policy and do everything in their power under the Constitution to ensure the safety and security of the people of the United States.”

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released a statement today reacting to news that DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson refused to stop a secret U.S. policy keeping immigration officials from reviewing the social media posts of visa applicants.

“This is a no-brainer, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson must resign or President Obama must fire him immediately. It is frightening for Americans to learn that Johnson supported a secret policy to ignore the public social media postings of foreign nationals trying to enter the United States out of concern for political correctness and fear of ‘bad public relations’ for the Obama Administration. This is why people are rightfully scared, they do not trust the Obama administration to keep them safe. The job of the DHS Secretary is to do everything within his power to keep Americans safe from those who would attack us, not to worry about politics or public relations. Additionally, we call on every Republican presidential candidate to publicly commit, during tonight’s debate in Las Vegas, that if elected they will reject this absurd policy and do everything in their power under the Constitution to ensure the safety and security of the people of the United States.”
