Obama’s DHS Chief Jeh Johnson Admits US “Truly in a Crisis” At Southern Border (VIDEO)
Obama’s Department of Homeland Security Chief acknowledged this weekend that there is indeed a “crisis” at the southern border and that the number of illegal aliens being apprehended by border patrol agents exceed anything he ever saw during his time in the Obama Administration.
Jeh Johnson spoke to the media this weekend about the illegal immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border.
On Friday morning, Jeh Johnson appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and confirmed that we there truly is a crisis at the southern border.
Johnson said the same thing on Fox News on Saturday.
“By anyone’s definition, by any measure, right now we have a crisis at our southern border,” said on Cavuto Saturday. “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.”
“That is by far a greater number than anything I saw on my watch in my three years as Secretary of Homeland Security,” he said.

The US Border Patrol is being forced to restart “catch-and-release” at the border because there isn’t enough bed space to hold illegal aliens and under the law, they cannot be immediately sent back across the border.
A record surge at the US-Mexico border is forcing border patrol agents to directly release illegal aliens into communities for the first time since the Bush administration.
Over 100,000 illegal aliens will be detained at the US-Mexico border in March alone — this is an invasion.
President Trump recently declared a national emergency to secure funding for a border wall and both Democrats and Republicans are pushing back against the President.
Huge caravans of Central American migrants have marched up through Mexico to the US border which has overwhelmed the asylum system — and another caravan is on the way.
Mexico’s Interior Minster Olga Sánchez Cordero sounded the alarm Wednesday about a new caravan, dubbed “Caravana Madre” (Mother of All Caravans), forming in Honduras that could swell to 20,000 migrants trying to enter the United States after crossing Mexico, reported TGP’s Kristinn Taylor.
The US is projected to add about 1.5 million illegal aliens (Democrat voters) to the American population by the end of 2019, should the current rates of border crossing and visa overstays continue, reported Breitbart.
On Friday President Trump told ABC he was cutting financial aid to Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador. Trump told ABC, “They haven’t done a thing for us.”
