Democrats and their partners in the media spend most days pretending that the President is way off base when it comes the idea of a “crisis” at the Southern Border.
President Trump isn’t the only one making this argument. The security professionals are all making the same argument – and it doesn’t matter if they work for Trump or if they worked for Obama.

Here’s Obama Homeland Security Chief, Jeh Johnson:
“When I was in office in 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, the PDB, and also the apprehension numbers from the day before. And I’d look at them every morning, it’d be the first thing I’d look at. And I probably got too close to the problem, 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 it was a relatively bad number, and I was gonna be in a bad mood the whole day. On Tuesday, there were 4,000 apprehensions. 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.”
And now here’s the current Commissioner of the Customs and Border Protection Agency, arguing that our immigration enforcement efforts are beyond “the breaking point.”
Something is going to give folks. If we are beyond the breaking point, we have to be concerned with what comes next.
