The Biden administration has had three years to secure the border, but they simply refused to do it.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday morning to discuss the border situation.
“You have now been in your position for three years, and let’s talk about what’s happened during those three years. More migrants have crossed the border illegally last year than ever before,” Kristin Welker said to Secretary Mayorkas.
“The data you cite is a powerful example of why we need legislation to fix what everyone agrees is a broken immigration system,” Secretary Mayorkas responded.
“Do you bear responsibility for what is happening at the border?” Kristin Welker asked.
“We don’t bear responsibility for a broken system,” Mayorkas continued.
Mayorkas also stated that he doesn’t regret ending Trump’s highly effective “Remain in Mexico” policy.
NBC asked Mayorkas if he regrets terminating Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy and will you reinstate it?
Mayorkas said no.
The immigration system might be messed up or chaotic, but that shouldn’t affect the border situation at all.
The federal government’s duty to protect the nation from invasion is outlined in Article IV, Section 4 of the US Constitution.
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.” Article IV, Section 4.
Unfortunately, they’ve completely dropped the ball on that. Biden’s open border policy has led to a staggering 11 million illegal immigrants flooding into the country.
Texas has witnessed progress in securing the border in Eagle Pass. Ever since Governor Greg Abbott implemented border restrictions, illegal crossings have noticeably decreased.
The tension between Texas and the Biden administration escalated in January, with governors from red states backing Texas and its choice to protect the border.
Maybe if the federal government took a page from Texas’ book on border security instead of bickering with them, we’d actually have a secure border.
