His inability, or unwillingness, to control the violent chaos at the border, and other major missteps, such as overhyping the ‘right wing’ domestic threat, is making him the lightning rod for the newly elected GOP-led House.
As I wrote earlier, the House must aggressively investigate Mayorkas and if needed, impeach him.
He should be one of the first Team Biden heads to roll in 2023.
Newsmax reports: “The White House will pressure Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign before House Republicans can push for his impeachment, but he likely won’t willingly step down…”
“They know what’s going on. I think they’re going to put pressure on Secretary Mayorkas to resign to prevent them the embarrassment of being dragged through hearings.”
But Mayorkas’ “ego and pride” won’t let him “do what he needs to do in the best interests of this country,” Morgan added.
Tuesday, McCarthy called on Mayorkas to step down and warned that the House might call for his impeachment after Republicans take over the majority…
“We know Mayorkas has been this administration’s chief architect of the open border,” said Morgan. “He took the most secure border in our lifetime and intentionally un-secured it. In the last 22 months, we’ve had over 4.5 million encounters and 1.1 million known gotaways.
We know drugs are pouring into this country, literally killing Americans every single day. We know among the 1.1. million known gotaways are hardcore criminals, murderers, rapists, pedophiles, and gang members.
But while McCarthy emphasizes the border crisis, Mayorkas is also guilty of falsely demonizing and targeting half of all Americans.
As the Center for Security Policy (CSP) explains:
Alejandro Mayorkas [has] parroted the oft-repeated line that the biggest terrorist threat America faces comes from “domestic ideologically motivated extremism.”
This is a central assertion by the Biden Administration…They have even gone so far as to claim U.S. law enforcement and the military are riddled with domestic extremists despite the fact there has been no real evidence released to support this supposition.
In order to hype the seriousness of the domestic threat, the Biden Administration has soft-pedalled the very real danger of international terrorism. According to Forbes, Mayorkas reported “that since the September 11 attacks, the threat landscape against the U.S. has substantially ‘evolved’ to the point that foreign terrorism is no longer the chief concern of DHS.”
In other words, the threat from jihad receded and now takes a back seat to domestic “extremism.” In fact, Mayorkas said that the main threat was now what occurred on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol.
The actions by Mayorkas at the border and by hyping the so-called domestic threat are nothing short of disgraceful.
We can only hope his ego doesn’t allow him to resign. It’s time for a real prime-time congressional hearing focused on all these critical Team Biden-created issues.
And then, if Biden doesn’t fire him, he should be impeached. ALD
