Although Top Democratic Kingpins continue to wallow in their denial of the current crisis going on at the southern border and opposing the declaration of a national emergency by President Trump, Former president Obama’s officials continue to air their concerns.
Testifying before congress on Thursday, Obama-era head of U.S. Border Patrol Mark Morgan sounded the alarm, saying that the crisis is “at a magnitude never seen in modern times” while urging lawmakers to act to stop what he described as a virtual “open border policy.”
During a conference call Tuesday with reporters, Homeland Security officials declared: “The system is on fire.”
While Former President Barack Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said on “Cavuto LIVE” on Saturday, citing recent stats that “there were 4,000 apprehensions in one day alone this past week, and we’re on pace for 100,000 apprehensions on our southern border this month.” he acknowledged the fact that it was a far greater number than anything he had experienced in his three years of service.
But the like of Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff continue to taunt the presidents decision, calling it “unlawful” with claims of a nonexistent crisis.
.@realDonaldTrump’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation.

Trump is declaring a national emergency to bypass Congress, to build a wall we don’t need, to address a crisis that doesn’t exist, by claiming an authority he doesn’t have.
If that sounds like nonsense, it’s because it is. It’s also plainly unconstitutional.

According to The Daily Caller, Johnson’s comment is a significant departure from his Democratic colleagues, a number of whom have downplayed problems at the border, including several 2020 presidential hopefuls.
Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker argued in February that “If there’s any emergency at the border, it’s the one he created, the crisis he created,” according to an interview with Fox News.
Former Texas representative and 2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke told NBC News that same month that he would tear the existing border wall down if he could because it has not “in any demonstrable way made us safer.”
