Homeland Security Chief Tells Congress the Border Crisis Is ‘Unlike Anything We’ve Seen’

Jason Hopkins  June 11, 2019

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan appeared before a Senate committee Tuesday and reiterated his requests for Congress to help fix the border crisis.

“It’s been over 18 months since the administration asked for the legislative fixes that would’ve prevented the current crisis, and 40 days since we asked for the emergency funding necessary to manage it,” McAleenan told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee during his opening remarks.

The Department of Homeland Security chief then broke down how the border crisis has only escalated since those requests were made.
“A society does not ever die ‘from natural causes’, but always dies from suicide or murder – and nearly always from the former….”

It's called an "invasion".

Perhaps this has gone beyond the level that a "government agency" can handle any longer. Homeland Security -- it's now out of their level of competence.

Perhaps it's time to TREAT IT "as an invasion", even if the invaders don't wear uniforms and aren't armed (although a few of them may be quite armed).

That means PHYSICALLY OPPOSING their crossing, and using those means that would normally be employed to stop invaders from invading.

We either do that or build a border barrier.
One or the other (actually, both).

Otherwise... the country is lost.

Well, you know how it is with those hand-picked Trump appointees.  They lie about everything.  *****rollingeyes*****

Adam Schitt and Mad Maxine told me so in Maddow interviews.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.
