MAYORKAS: Border ‘No Less Secure’ Now Than It was Under Trump

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed this week that the border is “no less secure” now than it was before President Joe Biden took office.

During a hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, Mayorkas was asked whether allegations made by former Border Patrol chief Rodney Scott against the Biden administration were true.

Scott alleged in a letter to lawmakers that Biden’s team was intentionally enabling illegal immigration, thereby producing a national security crisis.

“I respectfully disagree with Mr. Scott’s assertion,” Mayorkas told lawmakers. “[The border] is no less secure than it was previously.”

Mayorkas also agreed to provide lawmakers with the number of suspected terrorists who have made it into the country via the southern border, but claimed he could not do so during the hearing because the information is classified.

This is just the latest example of Mayorkas downplaying the severity of the immigration crisis.

Earlier this week, Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, accused the secretary of trying to “bulls—” him about what was happening in Del Rio, Texas.

“We discussed a wide variety of things, but one of the things that I mentioned in particular, I was like, ‘Look, the migrant situation’s absolutely chaotic and terrible, but what keeps me up at night is another 9/11-type of event,’” Gonzales recalled telling Mayorkas during a recent meeting.

Mayorkas allegedly replied, “‘No, no, no. Everything is under control.’”

The crisis in Del Rio is clearly “not under control,” Gonzales said, pointing to the makeshift migrant camp that officials have created under a bridge in Del Rio, where nearly 4,000 migrants are now living.

“No, don’t tell me, ‘Everything’s under control.’ It’s not under control. Because like, I know it’s not under control. You can bulls— somebody else, but you can’t bulls— me,” he said.
