And the 2022 Academy Award goes to… Alejandro Mayorkas for his portrayal as the Department of Homeland Security.
That is how I feel every time this man takes the stand during a congressional hearing.
Once again, when pressed on the border, Mayorkas insisted that the border is secure and they are working to improve it every day.
Our border is not secure.
If it were, there would not be 2.3 million people crossing it per year.
More telling is the gotaway numbers as well as the drugs and human traffickers that are coming across.
This, of course, does not even account for the gang members, criminals, and other nefarious characters that cruise across the border as though they are going for an early morning walk on the beach.
Yet, when Mayorkas was asked if the border is secure, he stated, "Yes, and we are working day in and day out to enhance security, congressman."
Our FBI Director, who I have no love lost for, counters that belief.
When Wray testified, he stated, "We see transnational criminal organizations that are sending their drugs here and that are using street gangs here to distribute it. And that contributes to the violent crime crisis here."
When you have drugs and criminals coming across in this volume, I don't know how Mayorkas can sit there with a straight face and say the border is secure.
By the way, in case you did not see the most recent reports, we had 230,000 crossings in October, a new record.
