Former DHS Secretary Jeh Jordan finally admitted the border is in crisis.
The truth is that the border was in crisis when Johnson was Obama’s DHS Secretary!
Remember the unaccompanied minors (2014) that flooded our border?
How about the “catch and release” (2002) policy that began with the Bush administration but continued during Obama’s 8 years in office?
And the asylum con job where illegals claim a “credible fear” (2005) of their country are given a pass to come back for a court date. It’s a joke!
Just as many other government programs do, our immigration policy incentivizes the bad behavior it’s trying to stop.
Jeh Johnson is one of the reasons we’re in this mess so it’s really big of him to finally admit we’re in crisis:
BREAKING: President Obama's DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson says America's southern border is "truly in a crisis."

The loopholes in our immigration system must be fixed.
This invasion isn’t fair to the American citizens!
We have a mega caravan of up to 20k people coming next. President Trump should close the border now.
Our catch and release policy is causing this stampede at the border. Overwhelming the system is the plan so that illegals will be released into America.
President Trump is responding to the Border Patrol’s assessment that the border is in full crisis mode now with thousands currently coming our way and another “Mother of all Caravans” forming in Honduras.
The current migrant caravan made up of around 2,500 Central Americans and Cubans is traveling through Chiapas after leaving Tapachula last weekend.
Mexico News Daily reports:
A massive cohort of prospective migrants dubbed the “mother of all caravans” is forming in Honduras, the federal interior secretary said today.
“We are aware that a new caravan is forming in Honduras that they’re calling the mother of all caravans . . . and which could be [made up of] more than 20,000 people,” Olga Sánchez Cordero said.
OVERWHELMING THE SYSTEM:
The effort to overwhelm our system is going as planned. The detention centers are at or near capacity so the border patrol is forced to release illegals with a bus ticket and a court date in the future. It’s not too difficult to figure out that the word has gotten out that it’s time to come to America because you can get in with no problem.
In fact, the border patrol has released 24,000 illegals into the interior of the country in the past two weeks!
On Tuesday, the Rio Grande Valley Sector apprehended nearly 1,700 illegal aliens, making it the highest one-day total since 2014. At its current rate, the Rio Grande Valley Sector will surpass 2014 apprehensions during the last mass migration influx.
PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED OUT THAT HE “MAY CLOSE THE SOUTHERN BORDER”
Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!
Put Americans First! Close the Border!
The U.S. doesn’t need the extra burden of thousands of Central Americans who are at or below the poverty line. We cannot sustain this.
We’re giving bus tickets to illegals and sending them off into America. A nation with no borders is not a nation!
