Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson: ‘We are truly in a crisis‘ at the southern border.
“A little bit of context here. 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 would be my intelligence book sitting on my desk, the PDB, and also the apprehension numbers from the day before,” Johnson said during his appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“My staff would tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehension 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 going to be in a bad mood the whole day.”
“On Tuesday there were 4,000 apprehensions. I know that a thousand overwhelms the system. I can’t imagine what 4,000 a day looks like. So, we are truly in a crisis,” he continued.
Jeh Johnson, homeland security secretary during former President Barack Obama’s second term, declared Friday the southern border is in a “crisis” state, a claim the Trump administration first made late last year.
“We are truly in a crisis,” Johnson told MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski.
“On Tuesday there were 4,000 apprehensions. I know that 1,000 [apprehensions] overwhelms the system and I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like,” he said.

Federal law enforcement agents made more than 3,700 apprehensions across California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas on Monday. More
Most of the Demoncrats are too stupid to know that there is truly a huge crisis at the border, but when you have a former Obama staff member saying that there is a crisis, you know that there is a real big crisis!
The Liberal Congress members, especially the House under Nancy Pelosi’s control “refuse to recognize a disaster which is taking place” and it will put America on that “deathbed” if it isn’t stopped.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
