You know what they say…..don’t ask a question if you aren’t prepared to get the answer.
And that’s exactly what CBS did in a recent interview when they interviewed border patrol veteran Fernando Grijalva, who has served at the border across SIX different presidential administrations.
So the man has credentials and longetivity.
In other words, we should listen to what he says.
And what he said was “this is the worst crisis that I’ve [ever] seen”.
There you have it.
The CBS reporter even followed up with: “You actually use that word, ‘crisis’?”
“Yes” said Grijalva, without missing a beat.

Here's more on the story, from The Daily Caller:
Customs and Border Protection agent Fernando Grijalva told CBS News this is the worst immigration crisis he’s ever witnessed in his entire career.
CBS evening news interviewed Grijalva in Arizona Thursday, after agents apprehended 180 migrants attempting to gain access to the U.S. He said the area has become a popular spot for illegal border crossings in recent months.
“I’ve seen six different presidents the time that I’ve been with the Border Patrol, and this is the worst crisis that I’ve seen,” he said.
Grijalva wasn’t afraid to highlight the severity of issue and doubled down when asked if it should be called a “crisis.”
He also said border agents continue their patrols despite the high risks and lack of pay due to the government shutdown. “They believe that strongly in the mission and they know that they that we have a job to do,” Grijalva concluded.
President Donald Trump and Congressional Democrats remained deadlocked over $5.7 billion in funding for a potential border wall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi moved to postpone the state of the union address due to the government shutdown while Trump pulled Pelosi’s security detail for her trip to Afghanistan.
