Congressman Carlos Gimenez Blasts DHS Secretary Mayorkas for Dereliction of Duty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Carlos A. Giménez participated in a Homeland Security Committee hearing to examine Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas dereliction of duty and his abject failure to protect the security of the United States. Secretary Mayorkas’ failures have swung our southern border wide open, allowed an unprecedented surge of unlawful migrants into the country, and flooded American communities with deadly fentanyl. In two years, the Biden Administration has undone any semblance of order and the rule of law and replaced it with failed, open-border policies that have created utter chaos. The ongoing humanitarian and national security crisis is the direct result of a DHS Secretary that has not taken seriously the responsibility to secure operational control of our border.

“I believe like my colleagues that Mr. Mayorkas is not incompetent, I think he is derelict in his duties because everything that he has done is done on purpose. Do you share that view?” 

“In the first days of the Biden Administration, policies that were put in place by the Trump Administration to secure the border were overturned and then things started to go south in a really big way. Do you know first hand if Border Patrol agents advise Mr. Mayorkas that he needs to reverse his policies to stop the tidal wave that is coming into the United States?”

“Mr. Wolf, when you had the Remain in Mexico Policy, what percentage of those seeking asylum were granted asylum?”

“The law says if you are seeking asylum you are supposed to be detained until your hearing. That is not happening now is it?”

“Now people are being granted entry into the United States, so you are actually increasing the number of migrants entering the United States illegally by about 80%. Would you agree with that number?”

“The Administration does not know where 85,000 children actually are. Did that ever happen during the Trump Administration?”
