Top Obama Officials Agree: We’ve Got a Crisis at the Border


Democrats are doing everything they can to convince the American public that things are just fine when it comes to immigration, but at least a couple of former top Obama administration officials say that’s a load of hogwash. They’ve come out in the past week to express concern over what the Border Patrol is facing on a daily basis, and both of them have encouraged Congress to do something about it before things spiral completely out of control.

“By anyone’s definition, by any measure, right now we have a crisis at our southern border,” former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Saturday. “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. That is by far a greater number than anything I saw on my watch in my three years as secretary of Homeland Security.”

Johnson said that while he agrees with the Trump administration that something must be done, he does not agree that the president should take unilateral action.

“There are ways to do this, and you make your case to Congress for why there is a crisis and there is a crisis on our southern border right now and you do it through a conventional reprogramming and you get the resources you need to address the crisis,” he said. “There are answers to this problem, and if we can strip away the politics and the emotion, they can be obtained.”

Unfortunately, this kind of talk is nearly as sort-sighted as saying there isn’t a crisis at all. Trump has tried for more than two years to talk immigration sense to the bozos on Capitol Hill; they don’t want to hear it. The best Nancy Pelosi can do is insist that it’s an imaginary crisis to distract the American people from the Russia investigation. Although, at this stage in the game, we would think that Democrats would be more interested in distracting the public from “Russia” than Trump. In any event, Democrats have shown no interest whatsoever in solving this problem, which they argue doesn’t actually exist.

Johnson is not the sole Obama-era official telling it like it is, though. Mark Morgan, who was the Customs and Border Patrol chief under the former president, said in an op-ed last week that “historical analysis clearly shows that we are experiencing a crisis greater than we have in recent times.”

“The entire immigration system is overrun,” he wrote. “They’re not at the breaking point, they’re past it. Border Patrol resources are being pulled off the front lines to address the unprecedented humanitarian crisis while the cartels further exploit our open borders, increasing the threat to our country.”

It’s fine, the Democrats say. Just fine.

And to them, and their goals for this country, that’s probably true.

  1. YEAH PISSLUCY , and SHITFORBRAINS SHITSHUMER, If Obama Bin Lying Was president and wanted money for the border, the money and wall would have been built by now. That’s okay just remember that 2020 is coming up really fast right now and your sorry A$$’s can be voted out of OFFICE . WE THE PEOPLE are about fed up with your crazy BS, and hopefully at the elections us TRUE AMERICANS will vote every one of you BABY KILLERS out of OFFICE and there will be no DEMONRAT party anymore…

  2. This people are demented. Their sense of entitlement is beyond belief. The went to elect the all politicians. They want a free ride for all. They want to be able to kill an infant just shy of being born. Who are these people and why isn’t there a hunting season to cull their numbers. We will not call it murder, instead it will be a retro-active abortion. What’s the difference? Murder them the day they exit the natal canal or when they are adults.

  3. No shit you DUMAS like the Americans people didn’t all ready knew that dam you democrats are so fucking stupid. Maybe you can explain to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer see if there DUMAS would listen. This bullshit has been going on for 50 dam years how stupid and blind can you all be .

Paul Moore.. i was Dem from long ago, Never voted party i voted for the person i thought was the Best for USA, I voted for the 44th president and he won , it was the first time the person i voted for won an guess what i Regret Voting for him, But the second time around i had changed party and Did Not make the same Mistake i had last Vote, But he won second term .. SAD For USA for sure. I Voted for Trump , I am pleased with our President Trump , I do wish he would think more about saying some things , giving the heads up on something before hand sometimes is Not a Good thing,,I will be Voting for second term for the 45 th President ,, What i do HOPE for our Countries future is that the Crazy 2 Ding Bates the Dems voted in will be Booted out of Office and any others that think the way they do.. Which seems to be most of the Dem party ,,God give us away to Bring Back or give Sanity to the Democrat Party and the Republicans that seem to think like them..
