Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson is calling on Congress to pass a clean appropriations bill that funds President Obama’s executive amnesty for millions currently in the country illegally. Failure to do so, according to the DHS head, could lead to diminished security at the border (we wouldn’t want millions to somehow get into the country illegally!).

The warning from DHS via Twitchy:

I continue to stress the need for a DHS appropriations bill for FY 2015, unburdened by politically charged amendments that attempt to defund our executive actions on immigration reform. The President has made plain that he will veto a bill that includes such language.
[…]
The public must also be aware of the impact on our ability to secure the borders as long as we operate on a CR. As part of our executive actions to reform the immigration system, the President and I have emphasized increased border security. Added border security is also a key component of the President’s FY 2015 and FY 2016 budget submissions to Congress. But, as long as this Department is on a CR, and not a full-year appropriations bill, our ability to strengthen border security, to include maintaining the resources we put in place to respond to the surge in illegal migration into south Texas last summer, is constrained.

Can we add an appropriation for the construction of a wall to keep out irony?
