MAYORKAS: Open Border Caused by Lack of Humanitarian Aid

"I think that pieces of the many different theories compiled together form a very compelling answer..."

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas suggested that the immigration crisis has been caused by a lack of international aid, Fox News reported.

In a recent interview with Yahoo News Mayorkas was pressed on what he thought might be the root causes for border crossings having reached 20-year-high under the Biden administration.

“I think that pieces of the many different theories compiled together form a very compelling answer,” Mayorkas said, dodging the question.

“The downturn in economies, the attendant rise in violence, the downturn in economies made more acute by reason of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the suppression of any humanitarian relief over the past number of years, and the pent-up thirst for relief among many different populations,” he said. “I think an accumulation of factors contributes to the rise in migration that we’ve seen.”

Completing construction of the border wall has no place in Mayorkas’s plan to handle immigration.

He claimed America has a legal duty and long tradition of providing international relief and humanitarian aid.

“The law provides that individuals can make a claim for humanitarian relief,” Mayorkas said last month. “That is actually one of our proudest traditions.”

Despite his rhetoric, Mayorkas has not seemed worried about the current crisis.

Last month, he said that about 20% of illegal immigrants arriving at the border recently have had illnesses—many of them presumed to be the deadly coronavirus, yet did nothing to address the matter.

He also ordered the release of over 12,000 Haitians into the U.S., citing once more our nation’s proud tradition of providing humanitarian relief.
