"I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two are lawyers and three or more are the government." -- John Adams (1735 - 1826)

On Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas had the audacity to claim that the Biden administration doesn't bear responsibility for the border crisis, despite, among other things:

  • Terminating the National Emergency at the Southwest border
  • Revoking a Trump-era Executive Order that was designed to ensure there was meaningful enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.
  • Issuing an executive order protecting DACA recipients
  • Unveiling the U.S. Citizenship Act, which would provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S., demonstrating intent to reward illegal border crossers with a path to citizenship.
  • Announcing a 100-day moratorium on deportations and immigration enforcement, effectively providing amnesty to criminal and other removable aliens

(It's a really long list...)

And since Biden was sworn in as president in January 2021, there have been at least 7 million encounters near the southern border, while the government deals with a backlog of more than 3 million asylum cases in US courts.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," Mayorkas claimed: "It certainly is a crisis. And, well, we don’t bear responsibility for a broken system, and we’re doing a tremendous amount within the system. But fundamentally, Congress is the only one who can fix it."

And of course, zero pushback from the 'journalist' sitting across from him

 

Claire's Observations:  This is utterly bovine excrement on Mayorka's part, and he knows it.  But what is even more telling, is his smug audacity and hubris, to believe that the American public is absolutely "buying it".  We are not, Alejandro; and this is going to be one big, fat  hairy reason why Biden will lose the upcoming election, even with the best cheating the Demonocrats can conjure.
