Many Democrats have dismissed Trump’s assessment of what’s happening at the border, but Jeh Johnson, DHS secretary under Obama, sure seems to agree with Trump when it comes to the severity of the problem:
Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson says that if over 1000 illegal immigrants are apprehended in a single day, it "overwhelms the system."

Just last month congressional Democrats (as well as some in the media) were accusing Trump of manufacturing a border crisis. Johnson sounds like he disagrees with that.
