Remarks By Secretary Of Homeland Security Jeh C. Johnson At Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute 2015 Public Policy Conference – As Delivered. 牛人云集,一亩三分地
. from: 1point3acres
Release Date: October 7, 2015.

Release Date: Oct. 7, 2015
Washington, D.C.
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
2015 Public Policy Conference
(As delivered)

Good morning everybody.

Let me begin by paying a real tribute to Luis Gutiérrez. He is, in my 58 years of experience, probably the most passionate advocate for his cause, which is the rights of immigrants in this country. I’ve had Luis Gutiérrez to my home for dinner. I’ve learned a lot from him. I’ve seen the passion and enthusiasm; this man believes in what he works so hard for, not as a matter of politics but because he believes it in his heart. I’ll never forget I had Luis over to dinner one night with my wife here in Washington to talk about immigration reform. Luis is very effective. The next day, my wife, not me, my wife receives a really nice bowl of flowers with a note: “Dear Susan, I know you believe as I do.” Very effective.

Thank you for the invitation to be here today. Truth be told, I asked to speak to you. My message today is about our immigration policies and the reforms that we are making. My real message is about—and this is for the young people here—before the program started I was down here and I met a lot of CHCI fellows, gives me a lot of hope for the future. Mario Flores, who works for me, a decorated combat veteran of the U.S. Army who’s been deployed to Afghanistan now works for me today, is a graduate of the CHCI program. Let’s give Mario a hand.

I was down there and I happened to meet a number of students from Albert Einstein School here in Washington, D.C. Where are you? Give yourselves a hand please. I asked them, what would you like to hear from the Secretary of Homeland Security, the person responsible for keeping everybody safe? Immigration policy. I intend to talk about that.

About a month ago, I was honored to give a speech at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, right in the middle of this country’s heartland. I gave the 56th Green Foundation Lecture at Westminster College. This is a place steeped in history. The most famous Green Lecture at Westminster College was given by Winston Churchill in 1946, the famous “Iron Curtain” speech. In 1954, Harry Truman gave a Green Lecture, which was the inspiration for my remarks a month ago. The title of his speech was “What Hysteria Does to Us.” So, in the wake of that address, what I said at Westminster College, I want to repeat today. All of us in public office, those who aspire to public office and who command a microphone, owe the public calm, responsible dialogue and decision making. Not overheated, over-simplistic rhetoric and proposals of superficial appeal. In a democracy, the former leads to smart and sustainable policy; the latter can lead to fear, hate, suspicion, prejudice, and government overreach.

These words are especially true in matters of homeland security, and they are especially true in matters of immigration policy. Why do I say that? There is much misinformation and overheated rhetoric about our immigration policy in this country, best evidenced by a poll that was taken two years ago by Pew Research, which is a nonpartisan organization. The survey asked the following question two years ago: “Just your best guess, compared with ten years ago, do you think the number of immigrants entering the U.S. illegally today is higher, lower, or about the same?” A majority of those surveyed said, 55 percent, said it was their perception that there is more illegal immigration today than there was ten years ago. In fact, the opposite is true.

In Fiscal Year 2000, there were 1.6 million people apprehended on our Southern Border attempting to cross illegally. Apprehensions are an indicator of total attempts to cross the border illegally. 1.6 million fifteen years ago. That number in recent years is now a fraction of what it used to be: in Fiscal Year 2013, 414,000; in Fiscal Year 2014 it went up a bit, 479,000; in Fiscal Year 2015, the year we just completed, we estimate that the number will be 331,000, give or take a few. The number in recent months has begun to rise again from Central America, an issue we must address, but in fact the last Fiscal Year the number of apprehensions on our Southern Border were, with the exception of one year, the lowest since 1972.

There is more we can do. As a sovereign nation we must protect our borders, but building a wall across the entire Southwest Border is not the answer. Building a wall across the winding Rio Grande, through the remote desert, and in mountains 10,000 feet high is not the answer. Investing hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars, in taxpayer money in building such a wall across the entire 1,900 mile border is not the answer.

The best commentary on this that I heard was from a border security expert, somebody who works in DHS, who said, “Wait a minute, do you really think that a migrant from Central America, who is motivated enough to travel the entire length south-to-north of Mexico and climb a 10,000 foot mountain is going to be deterred by a ten foot wall?”

Or, as somebody else once said, “Build a fifteen foot wall and I’ll show you a sixteen foot ladder.” In fact, pursuant to the Secure Fence Act of 2006, we did build 700 miles of wall in the places where it makes sense. But in the future, more walls is not necessarily the answer. More technology for border security, not more walls.. from: 1point3acres

Perhaps the best advice I received last summer, in the midst of the spike in migration from Central America, was from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops: in-country processing, to provide a lawful and safe path for families desperate to bring their children here. So we’ve established in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador in-country processing for migrants and we are encouraging people in this country with children in Central America to use it. The longer-term solution is an investment in Central America, which is why this Administration has proposed to the Congress a $1 billion dollar investment in those three countries to solve the longer-term problems that we face..
