Jeh Johnson, former secretary of homeland security under President Obama, admitted that they expanded family detention centers under his watch [and originally put into place by Pres. Bill Clinton.]
Jeh Johnson, former secretary of homeland security under President Obama, admitted that they expanded family detention centers under his watch in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Thursday afternoon. “So, in 2014 — to deal with the spike then with the families — we did a number of things; including, by the way, working with the government of Mexico and obtaining their cooperation on securing their southern border. But we also expanded family detention, which was, I freely admit, controversial,” Johnson stated.
“We got a lot of heat for it,” he added. “There were just 95 beds out of a total of 34,000 equipped to handle families. We expanded that capability. I will freely admit that I made a big deal out of it so people could see what we were doing.”
The issue of separating families when they are apprehended illegally trying to enter the country has been a hot topic over the last week.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our main websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
