Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas will do anything not to use the word crisis on national TV.
He was recently on CNN with Poppy Harlow when she put that question to him.
Mayorkas sounded like Kamala Harris, serving up a championship word salad, using every word and condition he could think of to avoid using the word "crisis."
Nothing to See Here
I am just trying to figure out how stupid Mayorkas thinks the average American is.
When Harlow asked Mayorkas if he would consider the situation at the border a crisis, he responded, "You know, we — we have seen the situation at the border managed in an orderly way. We have seen it in extraordinary challenging circumstances as well. You can rest assured, Poppy, that we're doing everything that we possibly can to build a system that provides humanitarian relief in a safe and orderly way, while trying to persuade Congress to fix what is a broken system."
Well, actually, the system was working fine until Biden moved into the White House, but I digress.
Harlow responded, "I understand that. But just what you're seeing, what you've seen the 20 times you've been there, the record number of migrants at the southern border, and last year it was nearly 2.4 million, if that's not a crisis, Secretary, what is?"
Then Mayorkas served up some more word salad, stating, "You know, Poppy, we have seen 2.4 million encounters at our southern border, and it is reflective of the greatest level of displacement of people in the world since World War II. It is reflective of a migration challenge that is gripping the entire hemisphere. When I was in Colombia, I spoke with the president of the country, the foreign minister, the minister of security, and they spoke of 2.4 million Venezuelans in Columbia now."
Joe Biden's big immigration solution thus far is to create an app to apply for asylum so Joe can let them into the country legally rather than have them count toward the illegal entry stat.
Biden has picked four countries where we have seen a steady flow at the border and created a "parole" rule that will give them a path to residency as long as they apply legally.
He has earmarked an additional 30,000 migrants per month for the order.
He is literally moving migrants out of his right-hand pocket and moving them to his left to lower his numbers.
