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

After Congressional Democrats refused to even seriously consider funding the border wall, President Trump declared a national emergency on the Southern border and redirected funds to pay for construction. Democrats issued statements denying a crisis existed.

Well, the situation has changed so much so that even a DHS director under Obama has recognized the crisis.

Quote:
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.”

Of course Democrats either refuse to recognize the changed circumstances or fabricate another excuse to deny doing anything about securing the border. All things Trump must be opposed no matter the facts.

I haven't been there in many years. I do have relatives who hate that national parks are in danger and say they see no emergency. but like I said I havent eye balled it.
If there is an emergency of too many refugees, I think it could have been avoided but instead was inflamed and used for politics.

You are absolutely right. The propaganda being pushed by AzRwinger is taking a statement he made out of context without providing the full weight of what he was saying. He gave an interview on NPR recently as well. And it illustrates the point, that even with all the enhanced racist immigration policies that tRUmp has enacted, its not curbing immigration. To Curb immigration you need to address the problem at its source. All tRUmp is doing is exacerbating the problem and intentionally creating a border crisis so that he can use that as a political tool to get low information voters like AZRWinger's support.
