CNN Security Analyst: Biden Should Pause Immigration Enforcement After Texas Shooting



Hours after the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left at least 21 dead on Tuesday, CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem suggested that the Biden administration should pause immigration enforcement in the area. It should be noted that Kayyem formerly served as an Assistant Secretary for Homeland Security in the Obama administration.

“The most important thing for the federal government to do right now is to say there will be no immigration enforcement during this period in that area,” Kayyem stated, adding that the school district was 80% Hispanic.

“[Texas] has a large immigration population,” Kayyem added. “You want parents with their kids; you don’t want people hiding right now, and we need to make that clear ASAP because of the political issues in Texas.”

“Again, I don’t know motives; we don’t know motives; I am just telling you demographics,” she said later. “It is a predominantly Hispanic population with a large immigrant community relatively near San Antonio.”

“We need the federal government to say right now, everyone is essentially safe harbor right now in terms of immigration status,” she said. “We need people to come forward, not to be fearful of immigration status; get their kids, get their family members, because what happens in incidents like this is we’re going to have a strong police presence, a strong federal presence. We know this.”

“A lot of people do not react, especially if their status is unknown., do not react to police presence as you or I may, and we want to make sure that they know, despite all the politics going on in Texas right now, it’s the federal government that’s in charge of immigration enforcement,” she continued. “And people are safe; get your kids, get your families together; do not hide. The White House just needs to say that right now.”

Kayyem’s comments come the month after illegal immigration at the southern border hit a new record high with 234,088 migrants being encountered by border officials in April. The record has been broken repeatedly since President Biden took office, the last time being in March 2022 and before that in July 2021 when 213,953 migrants were encountered at the southern border.

    Immigration enforcement should be intensified, not paused after this. I have so had it with this “Never let a crisis go to waste” nonsense. Just another far left end run to permanent rule.

    Mayhem is, naturally a Obama disciple, committed to the “fundamental transformation”, which is to say the total destruction of the USA only to rebuild it into the socialist/communist model which has experienced failure, hunger, poverty and insurrection around the world. Obama, Kayyem and their ilk deserve elimination, or at the very least, a fundamental transformation.

    Just what enforcement is she referring to? She thinks we are currently enforcing immigration laws? What analysis has she been doing for CNN?

    This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. This is a country of laws that are already bin ignored by the Biden Administration. We do NOT need to further send the message that we have an open door at the boarder to allow even more illegals to enter the country. What a disgusting way to take advantage of a tragedy by allowing even more illegals into this country. This woman should be ashamed of herself, as should the Democratic party for their actions.

    Juliette Kayyem needs to shut her mouth. I wondered if the shooter was an illegal alien in the first place. To Pause enforcement of illegals coming into our country is asinine. These illegals most likely don’t have children; their issue is to harm legal Americans. Finish the Wall!
