Border Patrol can’t handle all the migrants, anymore.
They haven’t been able to for a good while.
What’s happening is they are being forced to release migrants into the United States because they have nowhere to put them. Why aren’t border crossers being sent back in droves, who knows?
Now, the mayor of Yuma, Arizona is making a big announcement.
The mayor of Yuma, Arizona, has declared a state of emergency, saying his city doesn’t have the resources to respond as the Border Patrol releases a growing number of migrants from custody.
Mayor Doug Nicholls noted, “There’s an imminent threat of having too many migrant releases into our community, and it’s above our capacity as a community to sustain.”
Nicholls told reporters he’s looking for a “FEMA-type response” to help his city deal with the influx.
He added, “FEMA shows up at disasters all the time. This isn’t a natural disaster, but it is a disaster either way,” he said. “Their resources could come in and take care of the situation and would effectively handle that.“
The fact that Democrats are still fighting to keep the border open to all-comers is not a good sign of things to come.
Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security in the Obama administration, isn’t exactly making new friends among his progressive peers.
Jeh went on Fox News to let all Democrats in on a secret that Republicans have been shouting for quite some time.
Might liberals finally open their eyes?
No chance, unfortunately.

From Free Beacon:
The Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday on Fox & Friends that the influx of immigrant caravans at the Mexico border was “a crisis by any measure.”
Johnson noted, “This is, in my view, having owned this problem for three years, first, I know what a thousand a day looks like. I saw it myself at border patrol holding stations. I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like. It must overwhelm the system.“
He added, “I think we have to get away from Democrat vs. Republican, crisis vs. no crisis. This is a crisis by any measure, and the solution inevitably is bipartisan. It has to be bipartisan. It requires a change in law.“
Homeless Americans and people in poverty always take a back seat to illegal aliens in liberal circles.
Taking care of their own should be priority number one, but that is certainly not the case.
It is now being reported that over $300 million taxpayer dollars went to attorneys defending illegal aliens during Barack Obama’s eight years in office.
