Do Congressional Democrats agree with President Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson’s assessment that 1,000 illegal border crossings a day constitutes a crisis?

Or do they agree with President Biden’s DHS Secretary Mayorkas who does not believe there is a crisis at the border?

Reporter: “Do you believe that right now there is a crisis at the border?” 

DHS Secretary Mayorkas: “The answer is no.”

The reporter then reminded Secretary Mayorkas:

“One of your predecessors, Jeh Johnson, he said that 1,000 illegal border crossings a day constitutes a crisis – that it overwhelms the system. We’re at between 3,000 and 4,000 now, according to CBP officials. How is that not a crisis?

The American people deserve to know if Democrats acknowledge the border crisis or if they’ll ignore it – just as the Biden Administration has chosen to do.
