Mayorkas Admits DHS Has Lost Control Of Border

( – In a recent interview, Wisconsin Republican Rep. Scott Fitzgerald claimed that in testifying to the House Judiciary Committee last Wednesday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas finally admitted that there is a crisis at the southern border.

Mayorkas faced harshed criticism during last Wednesday’s Judiciary Committee hearing from Republicans who have, in recent months, called for his impeachment over what they describe as his “dereliction of duty” in securing the border.

During the hearing, Mayorkas defended his department, arguing that its “approach to managing the borders securely and humanely” is “working,” despite the “fundamentally broken immigration system,” according to the Associated Press.

When asked directly by New Jersey Republican Rep. Jeff Van Drew if he would resign, Mayorkas flatly said he would not, adding that he is “incredibly proud” of the work Homeland Security has done.

In concluding the hearing, Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan reminded Mayorkas that he was asked to “be prepared” to answer questions and said that fact that he wouldn’t “is bad.”

While appearing on Newsmax’s “Wake Up America” last Thursday, Rep. Fitzgerald, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said Mayorkas admitted “for the first time” that the border is not only out of control but DHS is creating several “different categories” for those crossing the border while “padding the numbers.”

Fitzgerald said the hearing was important because it proved that former President Trump “was on the right track” when he said that there must be “physical security” in place before tackling immigration.

When asked about Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s assertion that Texas is the only government preventing illegals from entering the United States, Fitzgerald said Governor Abbott is right.

Fitzgerald said that last Wednesday, about 9,500 illegals crossed the southern border and most were “got-aways” who had “very little contact with Border Patrol.”

The Wisconsin Rep. warned that if the US does not get control of the border “very soon,” things will get “much worse” before they get better.
