Mayorkas Lies to the American People During Arizona Visit | – Federation for American Immigration Reform

2 minutes, 16 seconds Read

Recently impeached Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas visited Tucson, Arizona, and attempted to sell President Biden’s recent executive action as having worked to reduce the number of illegal crossings at the southern border.

Secretary Mayorkas touted that Border Patrol encounters along the southern border have dropped 40% since President Biden’s recent executive action on the border. Of course, the picture is much different than what Secretary Mayorkas is claiming.

The Biden administration is still allowing more than 70,000 otherwise inadmissible illegal aliens to enter the country every month via the CBP One app and its unlawful CHNV parole program. And even still, the number of crossings remains historically high, and there are millions of illegal aliens already inside the U.S. that entered under this administration (and many of those are suspected of committing violent crimes.)  As former Obama administration DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson once said, 1,000 border crossings a day overwhelms the system…and we are still well above that.

Let’s not forget, too, that there was a drop in crossings after Title 42 ended – migrants held off from crossing for a couple of months as the new processes were implemented, and then there was a surge even larger than before. Couple that with President Biden’s amnesty order that encourages more illegal immigration, and it’s only a matter of time before another surge comes.

Of course, Secretary Mayorkas had to sneak in the favorite lie of the Biden administration, that only Congress can fix the border crisis and that the so-called Senate border security deal would accomplish that. There are three problems here. First, if Secretary Mayorkas really wanted to secure our borders, he’d call for the immediate passage of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act, which he, President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Schumer have ignored for over a year. Second, he is lying when he says the Senate bill would solve the crisis. That bill mandates open-borders and the continued abuse of parole, but that’s precisely why he wanted that bill. Third, Secretary Mayorkas and President Biden can act now to secure our borders simply by enforcing our immigration laws, and that doesn’t require Congress to act.

Secretary Mayorkas and President Biden continue to betray the American people by violating our immigration laws and mass releasing illegal aliens into the country. On top of that, Secretary Mayorkas has consistently failed to take any responsibility for the numerous recent high-profile cases of rape and murder allegedly committed by illegal aliens released into the country on his watch.

While Secretary Mayorkas continues to mislead and betray the American people, communities across the country are being forced to bear the burden of the administration’s open-borders policies.
