Sen. John Cornyn released the following statement today, announcing his opposition to President Obama’s nomination of Jeh Johnson to become the next Homeland Security chief.

Today Sen. Cornyn pushed back hard on President Obama’s pick to head the Department of Homeland Security, voicing grave concerns about his lack of knowledge and experience with border security. Rather than selecting someone who knows the unique dynamics of our Southern border, the President has tapped one of his former New York fundraisers. Sen. Cornyn slammed the President, saying that Texans “need someone at DHS who knows how to secure our border, not dial for dollars.” With this Administration’s failure to secure the border, Texans expect a nominee with serious management and law enforcement experience – not a liberal Money Man being rewarded for helping Barack Obama win the White House.

Johnson would be moving from the Pentagon to Homeland Security. He secured his post at the Pentagon by being an early and lucrative supporter of Obama’s first run for the presidency.

Among the Department of Homeland Security’s chief tasks is securing America’s borders. Johnson has no experience in border security.

Senator Cornyn, just what exactly have YOU done to address the criminal incompetence exposed by whistleblowers within the Border Patrol? They (BP Agents) are ORDERED to stand down and STOP pursuing illegal immigrants, STOP attempting to even ID them.....this has been going on for years folks, and there is no telling how many MOOOSLIM JIHADISTS have run across our southern border blending in with the Mexicans, Guatemalans, Costa Ricans and only God knows whom all else. How hard have you, Senator Cornyn, fought to have that damn fence built that was authorized and PAID FOR OVER TEN YEARS AGO? We fully realize your desire to appear as a champion for conservatives after you publicly stabbed your fellow Texans in the back when you attacked Senator Ted Cruz. The paradigm has shifted, Mr. Cornyn...and we won't forget what you have done...and haven't done.

Remember BENGHAZI!

John *Mr. Stronly Worded Letter* Cornyn wants to reelected. He likes doing nothing but hanging out with his keeper Rove and drawing pay and perks.
I will not be voting for him. Since it doesn't look like he will face a challenge in the primary, I'll have to skip voting in the Senate race.

People with their heads on straight were warning of this when DHS was created. If we'd gotten Operation TIPS then Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. would be in charge of it.

This is amazing, that Cornyn said this. Obama is not a Republican.
