For three years, including before the 2016, Donald Trump has been saying that America has a crisis at the southern border and that something has to be done to stop the flood of illegal aliens.
For three years, Democrats have been denying that a crisis exists at the border, claiming that Trump is nothing more than a racist, bigoted hater.
Current Border Patrol officials have testified before Congress, telling them of the border crisis, but their warnings have fallen on deaf Democratic ears.
On Thursday, Mark Morgan, who served as Chief of the Border Patrol under Barack Obama, testified before Congress, telling them the crisis at the border is ‘at a magnitude never seen in modern times’.
Fox News – Obama’s border chief warns Congress: Immigration crisis ‘at a magnitude never seen in modern times’ – Obama-era Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan sounded the alarm Thursday on the crisis at the southern border, testifying before Congress that the crisis is “at a magnitude never seen in modern times” and urging lawmakers to act to stop what he described as a virtual “open border policy.”
“We’re experiencing a crisis at the southern border at a magnitude never seen in modern times, it’s unprecedented,” Morgan, who served as the head of U.S. Border Patrol during the Obama administration, told the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
Morgan made the remarks after Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said that more than 76,000 migrants were detained in February — the highest number of apprehensions in 12 years — and were on pace for more than 100,000 apprehensions in March. The surge in numbers has led President Trump, who declared a national emergency on the border in February, to threaten to close the southern border if Mexico did not stem the numbers flowing north, and if Congress did not act…
The question is, will Democrats who heard Morgan’s testimony and warning, listen or did they already have their ears and minds closed to everything Morgan said.
Republicans already know that there is a crisis, yet some RINO’s have been shirking their responsibility to protect America and the American people due to their hatred of President Donald Trump.
One has to wonder how many testimonies will it take to break through the stone wall of liberal resistance in Congress.
Worse yet, how many more American citizens need to be robbed, beaten, sexually assaulted, raped and murdered before Congress finally takes action to protect us.
Personally, I believe this should be one of the key issues of the 2020 elections and that the American people need to get rid of every politician who refuses to protect us.,
