For Democrats, the 2020 election is life or death.
If they can’t defeat Trump, the party may never recover.
And a top Obama official sent Democrats a warning that will cost them the 2020 election.
President Trump is the worst thing to ever happen to the Democrat Party.
Since his massive win in 2016, the party has been put into a difficult spot.
And in response, they have been shifting radically to the far-left.
This shift has been so pronounced that major Democrats are speaking out.
Jeh Johnson was the former Homeland Security Secretary under Barack Obama.
He is the person largely responsible for the process of detaining illegal immigrants in the detention centers Democrats love to claim to be “concentration camps.”
But because he is a Democrat, and served under Barack Obama, the left loves to ignore him, and act like following the rule of law, and detaining illegal immigrants, is a new thing.
Regardless of what Democrats want, Johnson continues to speak out in support of securing borders.
In a recent interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Johnson makes clear that the American people want secure borders.
He points out that Americans want to make sure that people are treated fairly, but that they ultimately want to put an end to illegal immigration.
“Look, most Americans want to be fair and treated in a humane way, those who have migrated here who are desperate, who are fleeing really bad conditions … We want to take care of the Dreamers, but Americans also want secure borders. They want to get control of illegal migration,” Johnson said.
He goes on to warn that far-left Democrat positions like decriminalizing illegal immigration are too far-left for the general population, along with Democrats like himself.
“When we talk about deprioritizing the deportation of those apprehended at the border or decriminalizing illegal immigration, I know that we’re going way too far to the left of the American consensus on where we should be on this,” Johnson said, before adding, “And you just cannot have a policy where a Border Patrol agent arrests someone at the border and says, in effect, ‘you get to stay here unless you commit a crime.”
Of course, Johnson is correct.
For decades, Democrats have been in support of securing borders.
Virtually every major Democrat, from Nancy Pelosi, to Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama have a history of supporting strong borders.
If Obama was not a supporter of secure borders, Johnson would never be a part of his administration.
But currently, the left is basically universally in support of open borders.
At a recent Democrat debate, every candidate on stage went so far as to agree that illegal immigrants should get free healthcare at the expense of U.S. taxpayers.
This is a position that even five years ago would be unheard of.
But now it is the norm in the Democrat Party.
And unless it changes quick, they will have virtually no chance in the 2020 election.
Do you think Democrats will lose in 2020?
