Mayorkas Now Says Border is Significant Challenge

How many days ago was is that Secretary Mayorkas said the border was secure?

Well, that narrative has changed rather quickly and dramatically.

Mayorkas is now calling the border situation a “challenging” situation.

Reversal

Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) asked Mayorkas, “Is the southern border currently in crisis, yes or no?”

He responded, “The entire hemisphere is suffering a migration crisis.

“We are seeing an unprecedented movement of people from country to country.

“It is not restricted to the southern border.

“We are seeing an unprecedented movement of people throughout the Western hemisphere.”

Portman shot back, “I would ask you for a yes or no answer [on] the southern border.

“I’ve been to Colombia twice in the last year, I’m very aware of what’s going on with regard to the displaced people out of Venezuela, and for that matter, Nicaragua and Cuba.

“But the question is all the more pressing. So what are we doing about it? Shouldn’t we be changing our policies at the border to deal with it? … So my question to you again is, is the southern border currently in crisis, yes or no?”

Mayorkas responded, “We are seeing a significant challenge at the southern border, as we are seeing it throughout the hemisphere.”

Notice how he called it a crisis in other parts of the country, but has only elevated his response to “challenge” for the United States.

It’s progress, just not the progress we want to hear.
