Obama’s DHS Secretary Confirms ‘We Are Truly in a Crisis’ on US Southern Border

Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson could not deny the obvious while appearing on MSNBC.

Democrats have been ignoring the emergency on the US southern border since President Donald Trump took office, but one of Obama’s top federal bureaucrats is blowing the whistle about the raging crisis.

“When I was in office at Kirstjen Nielsen’s job, at her desk, I’d get to work around 6:30 in the morning and there’d be my intelligence book, sitting on my desk,” Former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Johnson said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday.

“The PDB and also the apprehension numbers from the day before. And I’d look at them every morning — and my staff will tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehensions the day before that was a relatively good number. And if it was above 1,000 that was a relatively bad number and I was going to be in a bad mood the whole day,” he added.

Johnson said that the apprehensions that are coming in now are unfathomable in comparison to even the large number he had to process while heading up DHS.

“On Tuesday there were 4,000 apprehensions,” he said. “I know that a thousand overwhelms the system. I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like, so we are truly in a crisis.”

The full clip can be seen here:

President Donald Trump is upping his tough talk toward Mexico in the hopes that they will do something to fix the problem.

“We’ll keep it closed for a long time,” Trump said on Friday. “I’m not playing games. Mexico has to stop it.”

Trump is also yanking away aid from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala because he believes the socialist governments of those failed states are conspiring to send caravans of illegals across the US southern border.

“We were paying them tremendous amounts of money. And we’re not paying them anymore. Because they haven’t done a thing for us. They set up these caravans,” Trump said, according to a CNN report.

“At the Secretary’s instruction, we are carrying out the President’s direction and ending FY 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance programs for the Northern Triangle,” spokesperson for the State Department said. “We will be engaging Congress as part of this process.”

When even Obama-era officials are forced to go against the Democratic Party narrative on illegal immigration, that is an indicator that the crisis is really picking up. Trump will have to fight not only members of the Democrats but also traitors lurking within his own movement to solve this existential threat to the future of the US.

Federal Judge Blocks Trump Policy to Keep Asylum-Seeking Migrants in Mexico

Liberal activist judges are subverting the Trump agenda.

Published

on

A federal judge has blocked the Trump administration from stopping asylum-seeking migrants in Mexico, as liberal activist judges abuse their authority to prevent Trump from remedying the national emergency at the border.

A panel in an appeals court based in San Francisco, Calif. ruled 2-1 that the policy must be halted while legal challenges are conducted.

U.S. Circuit Judge William Fletcher, who was appointed to the bench by former President and close Jeffrey Epstein associate Bill Clinton, wrote that “uncontested evidence” show that third-world migrants “risk substantial harm, even death, while they await adjudication of their applications for asylum.”

Thus far, over 57,000 migrants have been placed in Mexico as they wait for their asylum requests to be processed. Before this policy was implemented, asylum seekers would regularly skip out on their court hearings and become illegal immigrants. The Soros-funded migrant caravans were created to flood the nation, and Trump enacted this policy to defeat the scam.

The far-left American Civil Liberties Union, as usual, is celebrating this defeat for law and order.

“The court forcefully rejected the Trump administration’s assertion that it could strand asylum seekers in Mexico and subject them to grave danger,” said Judy Rabinovitz, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, in a statement. “It’s time for the administration to follow the law and stop putting asylum seekers in harm’s way.”

Fletcher was joined on the panel by Richard Paez, another appointee of former President Bill Clinton, in striking down the Trump migrant policy. The dissenting vote came from Circuit Judge Ferdinand Fernandez, who was appointed to the bench by George H.W. Bush.

Fernandez made the argument in his dissent that the migrants applying for asylum were unlikely to be approved, and a ruling by a lower court should have been struck down. Nevertheless, he was outvoted by his far-left counterparts on the panel.

The panel also upheld a 2018 order on Friday from a San Francisco judge that blocked the Trump policy to deny asylum requests for migrants who do not enter the country through designated ports of entry. These decisions risk destroying the progress the administration has made to remedy the national emergency.

While Democrats like to complain about Russian collusion undermining American democracy, it is actually the entrenched kritarchy, or rule by judicial dictate, that is undermining the will of the people. Although Trump has remade the judiciary with many rule-of-law conservative judges, the work is far from done before liberal judicial activism is put to an end.
