If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Mr. Mayorkas had an advanced degree from the Clinton center for falsehoods and plausible deniability!
Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas made the talk show rounds this last weekend, and he was an absolute well of misinformation!
And that’s being nice.
Secretary Mayorkas started off by saying, “We have an asylum program that recognizes young children’s right to claim asylum, to claim fear from persecution by reason of their membership in a particular group. That is what the law provides and we administer and enforce those laws.”
He says, “We administer and enforce those laws,” not “the law.
That is the problem here. The democrats like to “cherry pick” the laws they want to enforce and the laws they don’t…, like letting illegal migrants free into our country without even scheduling a hearing date for them, or without any type of processing or vetting at all.
Regarding former President Trump’s policy of returning many of these illegal immigrants to their country of origin, Mayorkas said, “The prior administration did expel children, did fly children to countries where — from which they were fleeing, countries that did not have the capacity to administer asylum claims, countries that suffer tremendous violence, poverty, corruption, and other infirmities.”
Have you looked at the United States lately, Mr. Mayorkas?
“Violence, poverty, corruption, and other infirmities?”
Do you honestly think these kids would be any safer in any of your democrat-run, “sanctuary cities,” like Chicago, New York, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, or Seattle?
Mayorkas continued by saying, “The prior administration dismantled the orderly and safe way that these children could make their claims. It tore down the Central American Minors [CAM] program that allow these children to make their claims under United States’ law without having to take the perilous journey.”
This is not true. The only part of the CAM program that was terminated under former President Trump was the parole portion of the CAM program, which was terminated in August 2017. Individuals who were determined to be ineligible for refugee status were then considered by USCIS [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services] for the possibility of entering the United States under parole.
“We are rebuilding that process,” Mayorkas continued. “It takes time because the entire system was dismantled.”
Again, this is just not true.
Secretary Mayorkas was reminded about what President Biden said soon after becoming President, “Vice President Harris and I and our entire administration, we’ll always be honest and transparent with you about both the good news and the bad.”
This obviously hasn’t been the case, here, regarding the immigrant children being held at the border, seeing that reporters have not been allowed to see the conditions under which they are being held.
To this Mayorkas said, “Let’s not forget that we’re in the midst of a pandemic and we are focused on our operations, executing our operations in a crowded Border Patrol facility where hundreds of vulnerable migrant children are located.”
Okay…, here we go. When all else fails, blame the pandemic.
So, it’s okay to have these kids crammed like sardines in these “facilities,” not even being tested for the virus, in many cases, and then release them into the country, but it’s not okay to acknowledge the freedom of the press and allow a few reporters in to see what’s going on in there?
Mayorkas then said, “We’re working on providing footage so that the American public can see the Border Patrol stations. And I would encourage you and other reporters to see the facilities under the control of the Health and Human Services Department where those children are sheltered and where they belong and where we are moving them as quickly as possible.”
Ohhh. Now I get it! They’re going to “provide the footage” so we all can see what a great job they’re doing!
Would that be similar to footage provided by the Chinese Communist Party, showing how well the Uyghur’s are being treated?
That’s what you call a deceptive governmental propaganda film…, attempting to paint the government in the best possible light while controlling the evidence and the narrative.
And this is what the Biden administration is planning on doing?
Can you imagine the outcry and the outrage if former President Trump had not “allowed” the press access to border facilities?
The press was losing their minds down there as it was!
Mayorkas stated earlier in the week that, “We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the Southwest border than we have in the last 20 years.”
But, yet, he, Biden, Harris, Psaki, and all the rest, claim it is all former President trump’s fault?
Can I remind you that President Biden has halted part of Title 42 to allow unaccompanied minors to stay in the U.S. during the pandemic, ended the provision that asylum seekers must remain in Mexico while their cases are being heard, and suspended the Safe Third Country Agreements to share asylum seekers with other countries, all in just his first two months in office…, but the disaster at our southern border is President Trump’s fault.
“Safe Third Country Agreements is misnamed. There’s nothing safe about it. To return people to the very countries from which they are fleeing persecution, Mayorkas added.”
Huh…, yeah…, why would you want to return these people to the countries they came from?
Maybe because they don’t belong here?
And then he tries to sell us all on the assumption that these people are all fleeing persecution?
Being persecuted for what and by who?
Try being a white guy in the United States these days, and you’ll see what real persecution looks like.
Mayorkas has also stated, “The border is secure. The border is closed. We’ve been unequivocal in that and we are operationalizing our processes, executing our plans, we are a nation of laws, and we treat vulnerable children humanely.”
The only things that have any truth to them, regarding this statement is, “we are operationalizing our processes, executing our plans.” The rest are flat out lies.
And just recently, as a part of “executing their plans,” the Biden administration has awarded ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] an $86.9 million contract for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal, which will result in none of them being removed.
How about spending that money on hotel rooms for some of our own citizens, who are down on their luck, and homeless right now?
How about spending that money on treating the mental illness, or addictions, many of these homeless people are experiencing?
You don’t because these people already vote democrat, if they vote at all.
The ultimate plan here is for one party rule by the democrats.
Let’s make no mistake about it.
And they will do anything and say anything to realize that goal.
I don’t have anything against these immigrants trying to find a better life for themselves. If I was in their shoes, I’d probably be doing the same thing.
But, believe me…, IF THESE IMMIGRANTS WERE ALL POTENTIAL REPUBLICAN VOTERS, THAT BORDER WALL WOULD BE SO HIGH AND SO AIR TIGHT, THAT NOBODY WOULD BE GETTING THROUGH.
