Obama Declared ‘Crisis’ When Numbers Were Much Less Than Biden’s

Reacting to Vice President Kamala Harris’ claim that “the border is secure,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) pointed out that former President Barack Obama said that there was a “humanitarian crisis” on the southern border back in 2014 when there were around 2,000 apprehensions per day on the southwest border — compared to the numbers over the past two months of between 6,000 and 7,000 encounters per day.

“The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed,” Harris claimed during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” attempting to shift the blame and the discussion over to former President Donald Trump.

In an appearance on Newsmax’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight,” Johnson called the vice president out for her claims, and blasted the Biden administration’s disastrous border policies.

“The governors in the southwestern states there are dealing with about 7,000 people per day that they’re encountering, and because of the Biden administration’s open-border policy, processing and dispersing all around this country,” he stated.

“Well, the Vice President, the president, and Secretary Mayorkas are as detached from reality as they are from the truth,” Johnson added. “The fact of the matter is that this is a crisis. Again, 7,000 people — President Obama declared it a crisis — a humanitarian crisis when it was 2,000 people a day. But what they consider a success is processing and dispersing within eight hours. They just got very efficient at processing and dispersing to all points of America, and it’s all okay. Unless they come to Democrat-controlled cities, then it’s a problem again. So, again, the hypocrisy is just jaw-dropping.”
