Johnson, who has become the administration’s point person on immigration, told the House Homeland Security Committee that the president’s order to stay the deportations of millions of illegal immigrants is “simple common sense.”  

“The reality is that, given our limited resources, these people are not priorities for removal. It’s time we acknowledge that and encourage them to be held accountable,” Johnson said.

Committee chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said, “There’s a right way and a wrong way to do this,” and, “obviously I disagree with the president’s approach.”
