During an interview on Thursday with CBS This Morning, Joe Biden’s DHS Chief Alejandro Mayorkas made some questionable comments including one that would encourage migrant parents to send their children to the border alone.
Mayorkas said that the United States “will not expel” immigrant children if they are sent to the border unaccompanied.
“Some loving parents might send their child to traverse Mexico alone to reach the southern border,” Mayorkas said during the interview. “I hope they don’t undertake that perilous journey but if they do we will not expel that young child.”
Looks like the Biden border crisis just got worse!
During a House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, Mayorkas was grilled over the border crisis and even lost his cool at one point.
Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) confronted Mayorkas over the border crisis and asked him about illegal alien crime victims, specifically 19-year-old Amber Scott who was kidnapped in Douglas County, Colorado in 2006 at knifepoint by 25-year-old illegal alien Pedro Martinez.
“How many more Ambers have the kidnapped across America before you will take action?” Cammack asked. Mayorkas completely dogged the question, saying that it was “extraordinarily disrespectful.”
Read the full exchange below:
CAMMACK: I’m from a small town out West, and the month before I was supposed to graduate high school, which was 2006, one of my classmates was kidnapped by an illegal who had been deported multiple times. And I think when you have policies that incentivize folks to come over illegally, and we don’t have the proper mechanisms in place to protect our borders … that kind of impact has resounding effects. So my question to you, her name was Amber Scott — the young lady who was kidnapped by this illegal criminal —how many more Ambers have to be kidnapped across America before you will take action?
MAYORKAS: Congresswoman, I find that question to be extraordinarily disrespectful. Disrespectful not only to me, but disrespectful to the men and women of Homeland Security and to all the frontline personnel throughout this country who dedicate themselves to the safety and security of the American people.
CAMMACK: I’m sorry that you feel that way. … I’m sure the American people feel very disrespected about the border situation we’re facing right now [Emphasis added].
Americans often become the victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. This month, an illegal alien MS-13 Gang member — already in prison for attempted second-degree murder — was charged with second-degree murder for his involvement in a 2016 killing in Long Island, New York.
Federal data from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) reveals that in 2020, the office had received about 700 calls from Americans and their surviving family members, known as Angel Families, who were victims of illegal alien crimes.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) has long estimated that about 2,000 Americans are killed by illegal aliens every year.
In October 2020, President Trump issued a presidential proclamation that makes November 1 of every year the “National Day of Remembrance for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens.”
