Homeland Security Goes Full-Circle Under Mayorkas by Releasing Terrorists into US

'Some may be downgraded from the terrorist rating... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Despite the fact that the Department of Homeland Security was created in 2003 to prevent 9-11-like terrorist attacks, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has decided to release suspected terrorists, possibly into the United States, the Epoch Times reported.

Mayorkas’ department made the decision last month to release 42 illegal immigrants who are suspected to be terrorists. They may have been released into the United States.

But according to the DHS director, it’s okay because the government may downgrade some from terrorist status.

“Some may be placed in removal proceedings. Some may be placed in criminal custody,” Mayorkas told the Senate Homeland & Governmental Affairs Committee in Washington. “Some may be cooperating with law enforcement. Some may be downgraded from the terrorist rating.”

“I look forward to getting that information,” Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, the committee’s ranking officer said in response to the career bureaucrat.

But not all shared Portman’s skepticism.

Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., the chairman of the panel, expressed his wish to make immigration into the United States easier, especially for Arabs and others from the Middle East.

According to Peters, they have “long endured lengthy and intrusive screening when traveling.”

He also suggested, along with President Joe Biden, that the vetting process for immigrants be less racist, so as to “not have an adverse impact on individuals or groups based on national origin, race, religion or ethnicity” while improving “the process to remove names, when justified, from these lists.”

Peters concluded his praise of Mayorkas by asking how soon he could make the immigration process nicer and more comfortable for suspect groups.

“Can you provide an update on the progress of your review and when you expect changes to be implemented?”

In response to Peters, Mayorkas said that the work had already begun, but declined to provide further details of the operation.
