Biden’s DHS chief says the border is ‘secure’ and ‘closed’ as crossings surge
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said on ‘Fox News Sunday’ that the Biden administration is encouraging families not to send their migrant children along ‘dangerous’ border. He falesly claimed the border was secure and even blamed the record surge of migrants on the Trump administration.
“What we are seeing is the result of President Trump’s dismantlement of the safe and orderly immigration processes that were built over many, many years by presidents of both parties,” said Mayorkas. “That’s what we are seeing, and that’s why it’s taking time for us to execute our plans to administer the humanitarian claims of vulnerable children. That’s what this is about.”
“The border is secure, the border is closed,” said Mayorkas . “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 humanely. We can do it and we are doing it.”
“Let’s not forget that we’re in the midst of a pandemic,” he said.
