With each passing day something becomes more clear- Alejandro Mayorkas is a stark raving lunatic. He is insane and he is a liar.
His handling of the border is disgraceful and pathetic.
Joe Biden created the crisis at the border when he promised that all illegals in the US would receive amnesty within 100 days and that no one would be deported, murderers and rapists included. He added rocket fuel to trafficking of minors when he promised that no unaccompanied minors would be turned away. Biden shut down construction of the wall and all of the technology being implemented as well. He trashed Trump’s Remain in Mexico agreement.
It’s so bad that Biden is flying them (without ID) to the Canadian border to process them.
Illegal alien crime is wreaking havoc in some border towns.
It’s under control, says Pelosi.
The only way you could top this is to appoint a lying lunatic to head the DHS.
Mayorkas says the border is closed. Except it isn’t. Unaccompanied minors are still allowed in at will. And they’re catching a releasing without court dates.
In a pique of projection, Mayorkas blamed Trump for the border crisis.
“There was a system in place in the Republican and Democratic administrations that was torn down during the Trump administration. That is why the challenge is more acute than it ever has been before.”
Pardon me, but Trump’s system was working and the border was more secure than it had been in a very long time. Trump advisor Stephen Miller explains:
Joe Biden promised transparency. This is how transparency works for Mayorkas:
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’s visit to the southern border on Friday to assess the surge of child migrants will be closed to the press, fueling criticism of the Biden administration that it is not being transparent about conditions on the ground.
Oh, and Mayorkas has zipped the lips of the CBP:
WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is restricting the information Border Patrol agents and sector chiefs can share with the media as a surge of migrants tests the agency’s capacity at the southern border, according to four current and two former Customs and Border Protection officials.
The officials say the restrictions are seen as an unofficial “gag order” and are often referred to that way among colleagues. The officials requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media about the topic.
Border Patrol officials have been told to deny all media requests for “ride-alongs” with agents along the southern land border; local press officers are instructed to send all information queries, even from local media, to the press office in Washington for approval; and those responsible for cultivating data about the number of migrants in custody have been reminded not to share the information with anyone to prevent leaks, the officials said.
No Biden official wants his or her picture taken with the truth visible, nor do they want the CBP revealing the reality. It must really be bad as democrat flack Martha Raddatz took issue with the situation:
“The number of unaccompanied children and teenagers in border patrol custody reaching record numbers,” she continued. “Children forced to stay longer in overcrowded facilities. The media not allowed inside. The administration restricting access despite promising transparency, citing COVID and privacy concerns. The issue that at times plagued the previous administration now presenting a challenge to the Biden administration, one that shows no sign of abating any time soon.”
And if you dare ask Mayorkas about the crimes committed by the illegal aliens he’s dumping into the country?
Specifically, Cammack referenced the case of 19-year-old Amber Scott, a high school cheerleader at the time in Douglas County, Colorado, who was kidnapped at knifepoint in 2006 by 25-year-old illegal alien Pedro Martinez.
Martinez had been previously deported to his native Mexico after three felony drug convictions, but he returned illegally to the U.S. at a later date. Martinez was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in May 2007.
“How many more Ambers have the kidnapped across America before you will take action?” Cammack asked Mayorkas in the hearing, to which he called the question “extraordinarily disrespectful.”
Stark. Raving. Mad.
