Skip to comments.Eric Holder: ‘Democrats’ Need to Know ‘Borders Mean Something’
Posted on 09/14/2019 5:50:27 PM PDT by Hojczyk
Former Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out defending the Obama administration from critics on the far-left about its deportation efforts while warning 2020 presidential candidates that the U.S. needs borders.
The emphasis there was on people who had criminal records, people who posed a danger, a public safety risk, Holder, who served under former President Obama, said of the Obama administrations policy in a CNN interview released Saturday.
Democrats have to understand that borders mean something, he added.
In the interview, Holder expressed disagreement with some 2020 Democrat candidate proposals to make illegally entering the U.S. a civil rather than a criminal offense.
No, I dont think thats right, he said. The law that is on the books has been there for about 100 years or so.
While many candidates pressed for more open borders, former Vice President Joe Biden also defended the Obama administration during Thursday nights debate in Houston.
What Latinos should look at, comparing this president to the president we have is outrageous, number one. We didnt lock people up in cages, Biden said, then went on to falsely claim that we didnt separate families.
Biden also mentioned that Obama did the best thing that was able to be done at the time while touting the administrations efforts under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Why isn’t he in prison?
Oh, yeah, because the GOP was in on the Kenyanesian Usurpation.
The dirty little secret...
Legal immigrants hate illegals....
also native Hispanics hate illegals
I thought illegal border crossings were a civil law issue in the first place. The distinction is, as far as I know, longstanding, but I would not expect the products of today’s public schools to give a rat’s.
I knew a few people a LOOOONNGG Time ago when I was a lad that had never bothered to become citizens.
Maybe 3 or 4 older Italians in the neighborhood.
Over 60 for sure.
It annoyed me.
What the hell are you doing here this long and you probably just had to follow up with things and there would have been no issue.
I don’t CARE that they were “Italian”, they were breaking the law and didn’t love America enough to do the right thing.
It’s not a “hispanic” thing.
It’s a WRONG thing.
Holder isn’t the first to warn against some of the radical proposals of the lunatics vying for their parties nomination but, he may be the highest profile democrat to do so.
However, it’s too late. They’ve gone off the rails. Every utterance by their parties prospective nominee’s and the Lunatic Squad is a Gold Mine for 2020 republican and PAC campaign ads.
He refused/ignored all subpoenas and thats how he got away with everything.
Holder is just carping the ole RAT line. The RATS do not care about borders, the law, or certainly what is right. They are rabid about keeping the border open to continue the change of the DEMOGRAPHICS of the USA. Look how successful it has been at turning California into a one-party Democrat destroyed state controlled by RAT VOTERS.
So far, it has worked well. With many thanks to the complicit RINOS as well.
Yes, something to SMUGGLE STUFF ACROSS..!
Like machine-guns to narcos, for headlines-catching mass-shootings.
With no provisions for tracking those smuggled guns, the better to repeal the 2nd Amendment.
Holder and Jeh Johnson are black men who sit idly and watch illegals take their “people”’s jobs.
Democrats need to pander.
Black voters may stay home in 2020 and 2024
The only borders Eric Holder respects are borders on criminal enterprises - who controls what turf.
Sorry, Eric, the left no longer allows dissent even if it would help them. Watch out for that bus!
Now, about Fast and Furious...
Like Hanoi Jane, Eric Holder’s legacy will be this:
Terry, of course, was killed in December 2010 by a firearm believed to be part of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Operation Fast and Furious program.
I’d like to know when he said this. Was it after Trump’s recent success with the Supreme Court, which will also soon rule that DACA must go?
All the rats will start deserting the America-hatred ship when they suspect it is sinking.
We suddenly need borders, after 8 years of Obama. Don’t make me laugh. It hurts.
It’s gotten so bad that it isn’t even Holder and Obama’s Democrat party anymore.
Trying to save his career?
Holder is basically speaking as a mouthpiece for Obama about this issue, but the Dems have gone so batshite insane that no one is listening ...
“..Its gotten so bad that it isnt even Holder and Obamas Democrat party anymore....”
OBunghole set this train wreck in motion, completely, with absolute malice and forethought.
He owns this sh*t lock stock and barrel, and I hope someday he and Holder both get that Gitmo jail cell they so desperately deserve.
“borders mean something”.
This coming from the CARTELS favorite WEAPONS supplier!
All of these ‘no borders’ democrats should have their doors/gates on their houses/apartments/businesses REMOVED.
A ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth IS’ Legislation for these ‘good feeling’ dimwits who utter such stupidity....
Let them learn from experience how demented their idea is.
Might as well take their guns/guards/police away too - its what they want for everyone else to suffer...
