Yes, there IS a crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, and even Obama’s DHS secretary thinks so

By Jon Dougherty

There is a saying that goes, “Drastic times call for drastic measures.” Times are drastic along the U.S.-Mexico border, and dealing with the situation will call for drastic measures.

Earlier this week, POTUS Donald Trump repeated a threat to close the border with Mexico due to the unprecedented numbers of illegal aliens being encountered by U.S. border authorities.

In a series of tweets, POTUS said Mexico was “all talk and no action” in its efforts to stop a flow of migrants into the U.S. while Democrats “don’t care.”

“Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing,” he added. “The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!”

For weeks Democrats and RINOs have fought the president over his most recent ‘drastic’ measure — declaring a national emergency on the border. He’s won that fight, as we knew he would, given that the law is clear regarding such presidential declarations.

But now what? Where do we go from here? While Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats continue to insist ‘there’s nothing to see here’ regarding a border crisis, a former Obama Cabinet official disagrees. And he should know.

Jeh Johnson, who served as Obama’s Homeland Security secretary, told MSNBC on Friday that the U.S. is “truly in a crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border, and that current capabilities to deal the crush of humanity are wholly inadequate.

“A little bit of context here. When I was in office in [current DHS Secretary] Kirstjen Nielsen’s job, at her desk, I’d get to work around 6:30 in the morning, and there would be my intelligence book sitting on my desk, the PDB, and also the apprehension numbers from the day before,” Johnson said.

“My staff would tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehension the day before, that was a relatively good number, and if it was above 1,000, it was a relatively bad number, and I was going to be in a bad mood the whole day,” he said, adding: “On Tuesday there were 4,000 apprehensions.”

Four thousand.

“I know that a thousand overwhelms the system. I can’t imagine what 4,000 a day looks like,” Johnson continued. “So, we are truly in a crisis.”

He’s not the only former Obama official who agrees that what’s going on along our southwestern border is an emergency.

Mark Morgan, 44’s Border Patrol chief, praised POTUS Trump’s push for a border wall during an interview with the Law & Crime Network, saying, “The wall works.”

Dems running for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination are running around the country lying about what’s taking place every single day along the border. Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker, who’s from New Jersey, claimed recently, “If there’s any emergency at the border, it’s the one he created, the crisis he created,” according to an interview with Fox News.

Meanwhile, former Texas congressman and 2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke told NBC News he would tear the existing border wall down if he could because it has not “in any demonstrable way made us safer.”

And California Sen. Kamala Harris has previously called Trump’s emergency declaration of a border crisis a “TV stunt,” according to the Washington Examiner.

Well, the stunt is real — and about to get even more real. According to The Associated Press, a monster migrant caravan may now be forming.

“We have information that a new caravan is forming in Honduras, that they’re calling ‘the mother of all caravans,’ and they are thinking it could have more than 20,000 people,” Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero said Wednesday.

Some have questioned the size of the caravan based on social media activity, but clearly, Central Americans believe the gates are open at the U.S. border, based on previous caravans. As for who is encouraging (and profiting) from them, that would be Mexico-based cartels.

There are desperate times at the U.S.-Mexico border. Desperate measures are needed to deal with it.

That very well may include shutting down the border, as the president has threatened. We’re not sure exactly how he’ll accomplish that, but we’re a big, strong, rich country with lots of patriots who would be willing to volunteer, no doubt.

Yes, there IS definitely, absolutely, verifiably, without a doubt, unquestionably, most certainly, undeniably a crisis on our nation’s southern border. Please stop arguing this point with Deep State, anti-America, anti-sovereignty, anti-rule of law, pro-NWO globalist, socialist, Sharia law-supporting, future-dictatorship-supporting Democrats. Democrats are corrupt, greedy, pedophile-supporting traitors who will never ever agree that there is a crisis at the southern border. In fact, leftist Dems have created the crisis by funding the huge caravans of illegal migrants streaming in waves toward our border. Soros and other rich leftists fund them. Dems rely on illegals to fraudulently vote them into office, and… Read more »

Instead of sending the illegals to Texas towns, send them to D.C
