President Biden and press secretary Jen Psaki have both refused to acknowledge that what’s happening at the southern border constitutes a “crisis” (probably because it’s happening after they pretty much sent out invitations):
Reporter: “Is there a crisis on the border, sir?”
President Biden: “No.”

Psaki is asked if surge in migrants at U.S.-Mexico border is a "crisis"
"Look, I don't think we need to sit here and put new labels on what we have already conveyed is challenging," she replies
She also says she won't "confirm numbers" of unaccompanied migrants detained pic.twitter.com/fEw8bHTdsA

Townhall’s Julio Rosas has spent some time at the border and is finding the truth to be something the Biden administration won’t want to have widespread exposure:
On the ground in McAllen, Texas for @townhallcom to report on the immigration crisis at the southern border.

As for a “crisis,” Rosas says that’s the case by any objective definition of the term:
Just spent three hours right on the U.S.-Mexico border and I’m still in shock at how many people illegally crossed during that time. I knew it was happening, but it’s different when you see it up close. Story to come on what I saw. I will say this is definitely a crisis.

There are now more migrants in detention facilities (“cages” is what the media called them when Trump was in office) than there were during the previous administration.
Put them on buses and deliver them to the White House

Exactly… try living in a border town. It never ends.

But of course the current administration won’t use the word “crisis”:
It’s rather a “crisis on purpose”

A crisis to everyone except the Biden* administration. It's exactly what they want.
