Opinion: It’s Time for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas To Go | Joseph Boteach

When then President-Elect Joe Biden announced publicly his intention to open our Southern borders, it became clear that there would be a problem. Fast forward, and we now have a severe border crisis which has been manipulated by Bidens hand picked Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas. Yet nobody seems to really care about the crisis at the border when the major news outlets have pivoted away from the story.

Does anyone ask why all of the major news publications in America seem to be hyper focused on Russia and Ukraine when there is a real crisis much closer to home? Of course not. The liberal media would rather have you flock like sheep to whatever their agenda might be. For now, the agenda seems to be “any news story to distract from the abysmal performance of our President thus far.”

Under Joe Biden, there has been free reign amongst the drug cartels at our Southern border. The human trafficking at the border is also at a tumultuous high level. You want stats? Here you go: There has now been a 213% increase of sexual offenders that have been detained at our Southern border, many of whom are let go and come right into our Country.  There is also six times more fentanyl that has entered our Country, many via our Southern border. Secretary Mayorkas has essentially established a “catch and release” program, similar to what is happening in many Democratic run cities such as New York.

The effects are simply devasting to the people of this Country. How? Just last week Swastikas were drawn near entrances to Union Station, just blocks away from the U.S. Capitol. And while everyone speculated that it was most probably the work of the dangerous “white supremacists” the real perp was Geraldo Pando, a 34-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico with a 35-page criminal history.

Did U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement come get Pando when they learned that an illegal immigrant with felony convictions had been arrested blocks from the Capitol? Nope. The police were forced to release him yet again since no one from ICE even asked that he be detained. Pando is exactly the kind of illegal immigrant that Biden’s lax immigration policies are designed to protect. This is one of many documented crimes of an illegal immigrant since the start of the Biden Presidency.

Do I have a problem with immigrants? No. Do I have a problem with crime? Yes.

My grandparents came to this Country as immigrants, but they did so the right and legal way. This great Country was built on immigrants but guess what? It was also built on tough borders.

Many political leaders including Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody have publicly called on Mayorkas to step down as Homeland Secretary. Even his own border agents have publicly accused him of not supporting their efforts to do what they have been trained to do. It is time for Mayorkas to go.

  1. Mayorkas is carrying out his boss’ policies, and doing his bidding.
    Exchanging him for more of the same won’t solve anything.
    It’s not this particular secretary who needs to be replaced, but the liberal administration, in its entirety.
    Midterm elections are just around the corner. That’s when the citizens could show the ruling party their displeasure with the way that the country is run. Even if the President remains the same, flipping both chambers of Congress would paralyze his leftist agenda, and some members of this administration may even be taken to task.
    If you want changes, VOTE!

  2. the Secretary does not set the policy he just carries it out and the President who is responsible for it is just going along the lines of benevolence which is actually one of the favorable points of those liberal thinkers so the bottom line is the Secretary is not only doing a great job he is also humanitarian which is only a plus in this field

  3. So, a “border crisis” is a greater threat to our country than a possible World War III? Mr. Opinion throws a lot of “facts” at us with no proof of their verity.

  4. Why should he step down, he is doing what he was hired to do, open our borders and crack down on those opposed to the democratic partys agenda.

  5. Jews in Ukraine are terrified about what will happen to them if a full-scale war breaks out, but this opinionater wants us to believe the “border crisis” is of greater importance?

  6. Those who voted for Democrats you get higher crime. Keep voting fir stupid democrats then it will get even worse than before. Wake up vote for Republicans this year !!!!!
