Here’s Obama-era DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson throwing ice-cold water on Dems who are freaking out about this weekend’s ICE raids to arrest illegal immigrants with valid deportation orders:

In a Washington Post op-ed, Johnson called the Dem decriminalization plan “tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders”:

Oh, let the food fight begin:
