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.”

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.

LOL: Ignorant Blue Checks on Twitter Get Confused After President Trump’s Remark That ‘Coyotes’ are Smuggling Children Across the Border

These people know nothing that is true.

After President Donald Trump remarked that “coyotes” are smuggling children across the U.S. southern border in yesterday’s presidential debate, verified liberals on Twitter demonstrated their extreme ignorance when it comes to the immigration issue.

Some of the low lights from these clueless Democrats can be seen here:

Alleged high school shooting victim and gun control spokesman David Hogg showed his lack of basic intelligence on the issue as well:

The incredible ignorance from the Left on the true nature of illegal immigration has resulted in their support for some of the most ghastly and inhumane policies imaginable.

Big League Politics reported on how CBS News painted human traffickers in a positive light because they were flooding the border as part of a planned and well-financed migrant caravan last year:

The Darién Gap, a undeveloped jungle swampland connecting North and South America at the border of Panama and Colombia, is said to be one of the most dangerous places in the Americas. It’s largely overrun by human smugglers, paramilitary organizations, and drug traffickers, and the U.S State Department advises Americans not to travel to the region.

The region’s criminal reputation didn’t stop CBS News from running a sympathetic profile of some of the human smugglers operating in the area on Saturday. CBS’s portrayal of a ‘coyote’ named Emerson Gonzalez Jimenez was unquestioning of his claims that he was offering a generous service to the migrants who sought passage through the Darien Gap to Panama, usually on the way to the United States.

Colombians, Venezuelans, Haitians and even individuals from Asia or Africa commonly hire the services of the smugglers to navigate through the dangerous region. It’s not uncommon for migrants to die during the often-perilous journey, as the Gap poses a threat on account of its wild nature and the criminals known to operate within it.

A Marxist terrorist organization known as FARC, the Spanish-language synonym for Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, has extensively operated in the area. FARC has trafficked and sold a great deal of cocaine destined for the United States, in addition to waging a violent insurgency against the government of Colombia.

The crossing of often helpless and penniless migrants through the Darién Gap poses a humanitarian concern. Migrants are largely powerless at the hands of the coyotes guiding them, and can be easily exploited. Female migrants are often raped or forced into prostitution by smugglers.

Closing the borders would not only keep Americans safe, but it would also stop human trafficking networks from smuggling exploited children across the border.
