Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) just drove a stake through the heart of the Left’s “no crisis” lies about President Trump’s border security national emergency. During an interview with Sean Hannity, Graham confirmed that the U.S. is being “flooded.” He demanded, “If this is not a crisis, what the hell would be?” His remarks were made in the wake of Homeland Defense Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday during which she revealed that an estimated 900,000 illegal immigrants were expected to cross our border by the end of this year. Migrants aside, the Left continues to ignore the reality of rampant drug trafficking, human trafficking, and terrorism.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Sean Hannity on Fox News that the United States is being “flooded” with people coming across the U.S. border with Mexico, and it is indeed a “crisis.”
“If this is not a crisis, what the hell would be?” Graham said in the interview, which comes ahead of the Senate’s vote on President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to allow federal funds to be used to build a wall. “We’re being flooded.”
“The numbers are just through the roof,” Graham said.
Those numbers include family units being apprehended at the border up 335 percent over the last year and the apprehension of unaccompanied minors up 55 percent.
As Breitbart News reported, Homeland Defense secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday that an estimated 900,000 people are expected will be counted as border apprehensions by the end of the year.
The nation’s border defense system “is clearly breaking,” Nielsen said. “We need a barrier.”
