DHS On Pace To Catch 100,000 Illegals At Border This Month


Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen pushed back against claims that the U.S.-Mexico border crisis is “manufactured” and warned that crossings are on track to reach a 10-year high level.

The situation at our southern border has gone from a crisis to a national emergency, to a near system-wide meltdown.”

Everyone should call their congressmen and let them know that you will make it your life’s mission to see them defeated in the next election if they do not stop this asap.

Then if they don’t come through go ahead and follow through to make it your life’s mission to get them voted out.
