Republican Rep Says DHS Chief Mayorkas Should Be Fired

She has a point.

One of the basic responsibilities of government is to secure the borders. The current administration has abrogated that mission in the hopes that illegal immigrant voting will turn red states like Texas blue.

There is no thought to economic and cultural injury to the country. No concern for crime or public health. Nary a fleeting notion as to national security. Just the raw application of executive power. If there is any political justice Democrats will pay at the polls for this travesty. We’ll see in November.

FNC: “Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, is calling for Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over the mass release of migrants into the United States — citing what she calls a ‘dangerous void’ in leadership from the Biden administration.

Hinson is one of a number of Republicans to accuse DHS of being unresponsive to requests for information about the crisis at the southern border. More than 200,000 migrants were encountered in July and August, but Republicans including Hinson have pointed to gaps in information on issues like how many migrants are released and how they are being tracked. Hinson pointed to Fox News reporting that emerged days later that showed that more than 160,000 migrants have been released into the U.S. since March, including 94,570 with Notices to Report and roughly 32,000 immigrants into the U.S. via parole.”

“Secretary Mayorkas has lied repeatedly to Congress and to the American people about the crisis at the border and has time and again put politics over border security,” Hinson said in a statement. “It took Secretary Mayorkas five months to spin up a response, and even then, D.C. bureaucrats refused to answer my basic questions about who was being let into the U.S. and why,” she said.

As to the stonewalling by Mayorkas on vital data concerning the immigration flood, “DHS had this information all along—they just didn’t want the American people to know they aren’t enforcing our immigration laws and are playing games with our national security,” she said. Hinson said “not only has the border crisis spiraled out of control on Secretary Mayorkas’ watch, but he has been lying to the American people about it.”

“Secretary Mayorkas has failed in his duties as Homeland Security Secretary and should tender his resignation,” she says. “This is not a call I make lightly, but we are out of time, and there is a dangerous void in leadership from this Administration at the border. His replacement should commit to securing our border, providing our Border Patrol Agents with the support they need, and being accountable to and truthful with the American people about immigration policy.”

The Dems don’t want the people from Cuba or Haiti here because they won’t vote for socialism. That’s the lives they’re trying to get away from. Mexican’s will vote for it. Some not all. I know lots of them who won’t. People who want socialism need to take a good look at those countries and how the people are made to live. Is this what you want? And WHY would our government want to turn this country into that? It makes no sense. The better the country is doing the more taxes the government gets. But they’re dragging us down till we have nothing. Then where will their money come from?
