New DHS Secretary Says Illegals 'Earned The Right' and Are 'Entitled' to Become Citizens

In his speech at the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson made an extraordinary statement about illegal immigrants in the United States.

“An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows,” said Johnson, in what he remarked was one of his first public speeches since being confirmed as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief in December.

“It is also, frankly, in my judgment, a matter of who we are as Americans,” he said, “to offer the opportunity to those who want to be citizens, who’ve earned the right to be citizens, who are present in this country--many of whom came here as children--to have the opportunity that we all have to try to become American citizens.”
