Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly blasted members of Congress who pressured him to not enforce the laws that they pass.
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly slammed politicians who pressured the Department of Homeland Security not to enforce the laws that they themselves had passed at a press conference on Thursday.
“DHS does not make the laws. Congress does, and we will enforce the laws that are passed by Congress,” Kelly said.
“I am offended when members of [Congress] exert pressure and often threaten me and my officers to ignore the laws they make and I am sworn to uphold,” he added.
He then thanked Congress as a whole for its work to defend Americans living in “so-called sanctuary cities.”
Under Kelly’s leadership, DHS has taken a tougher stance on fighting the scourge of illegal immigration.
