DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed that domestic violent extremism was the biggest threat to the United States. Not the Fentanyl crisis. Not the unchecked criminals seeping in at the US border or the drug and human trafficking trade running rampant. Not even the growing terrorist threat.
According to Mayorkas, what we should all be afraid of is each other. Divide and don’t pay attention to what the government is up to—That’s the general message from Biden’s DHS Sec.
On Wednesday, Laura Ingraham analized Mayorkas’ garbage claim and I think it’s worth your time. I hope you agree.
Ingraham began, “Translation: You should be far more afraid of your fellow Americans than the millions of illegal aliens being bused and flown all over the country in the middle of the night. Got it? Of course, we all know that under Biden, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, he’s not really in charge of the southern border.”
The reality is that the cartel has better control of the border than the Biden administration, and we’re all supposed to just ignore everything as they break down border security.
She continued, “As a practical matter, the Mexican drug syndicates are. Millions of illegals have already crossed our border since Biden came into office. In just the month of March, Customs and Border Protection say they encountered more than 221,000 illegals. Now, to give you a sense of how staggering this number is, when Trump declared the border situation an emergency, which is three years ago, the number of monthly apprehensions then had hit 76,000.”
“Now because most migrants are gaming our asylum laws, one of the few tools that Border Patrol agents had under Biden was Title 42, which was the Trump rule that allowed for immediate turnaround of migrants at the border due to these COVID concerns,” Igraham added. “And to understand how significant this tool is, in March, 109,549 encounters, 50% of the total were processed for expulsion under Title 42. Twenty-one percent of all family unit individuals were processed for expulsion under Title 42 as well.”
“You understand that? Two-hundred twenty-thousand — about half immediately turn back, not bused around the country because of Title 42. Biden wants to get rid of that And of course, because his team believes borders are immoral, they are in full support of dropping Title 42. But because they know just how detrimental this will be to all Americans, they’re passing the buck,” Ingraham concluded.
It’s really in Mayorkas’ best interest to try an divide Americans. He’s under the gun for the disaster at the border. GOP officials are working to hold him accountable for the crisis.
A letter sent this week by more than 130 House Republicans that expressed “grave concerns” about Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ suitability for office is the latest instance of Republicans in the chamber ramping up their oversight efforts on the DHS chief amid a spiraling border crisis – a push that has included rumblings of a possible impeachment.
“Your actions have willingly endangered American citizens, undermined the rule of law and our nation’s sovereignty,” the 133 Republicans, led by Border Security Caucus co-chair Brian Babin, R-Texas., and Republican Study Committee Chair Jim Banks, said. “Your failure to secure the border and enforce the laws passed by Congress raise grave questions about your suitability for office.”
