Law School Students And Professors Protest Speech By Obama DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson

Jeh Jonhson was a member of the Obama administration but that hasn’t shielded him from left wing insanity on our college campuses.

He was supposed to give the commencement address at USC’s law school but people protested because of Obama’s immigration policies.

As we track the 2019 law school graduation speakers from around the nation, one institution that’s conspicuously missing is USC’s Gould School of Law. That wasn’t always the case, with former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson penciled into the commencement role long ago.

But yesterday, Secretary Johnson, presently a partner at Paul Weiss, withdrew from the festivities in light of complaints raised by USC Law professors and mounting pressure from students.

A letter to the USC community from Dean Andrew Guzman announced the scheduling change:

I am writing to inform you that our invited keynote speaker, Jeh Johnson, former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security under President Obama, has withdrawn from this year’s USC Gould JD commencement ceremony.

I informed Secretary Johnson that some faculty and students have raised concerns about the immigration policies of the Obama Administration and, therefore, about having him as our commencement speaker. Secretary Johnson shared with me that he believes that graduations should be free of tension and political controversy and for this reason has decided not to speak.

Of course, this could also have something to do with Johnson’s support for Trump’s claim that there is a crisis on the border.

FOX News reported in March:

Obama-era DHS chief Jeh Johnson says US has a ‘crisis’ at the southern border

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Saturday that America has a “crisis” at the southern border, and that the number of apprehensions exceed anything he encountered during his time serving under former President Barack Obama.

“By anyone’s definition, by any measure, right now we have a crisis at our southern border,” he said on “Cavuto LIVE.” “According to the commissioner of [Customs and Border Protection], there were 4,000 apprehensions in one day alone this past week, and we’re on pace for 100,000 apprehensions on our southern border this month.”

“That is by far a greater number than anything I saw on my watch in my three years as Secretary of Homeland Security,” he said.

Johnson’s remarks come after President Trump this week accused Mexico of doing nothing to stop the illegal immigration flow to the U.S. and threatened to close to southern border next week.

Our college campuses have moved so far left that they’re protesting Obama people.

That’s how bad things have gotten.
