At Hearing, Secretary Mayorkas Can’t Name 1 Domestic Terror Case Referred to DOJ

“Despite claiming domestic terrorism is the #1 threat to the homeland, [Secretary Mayorkas] can’t name a single case that he referred from DHS to DOJ for white supremacy or domestic terrorism,” Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) said after a heated exchange with Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

When testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday Mayorkas faced lawmakers to discuss the Biden administration’s plan to lift Title 42, the Trump-era public health order that has been used to expel a majority of migrants at the border during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lifting Title 42 leaves many concerned that it will create an even more tumultuous situation at the border. In a particularly memorable part of the testimony, stated domestic terrorism and those on watchlists as our #1 threat.

Despite his discussion of domestic terrorism, Mayorkas on Thursday failed to name a case of domestic terrorism that his department has referred to the Department of Justice.

Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., pressed Mayorkas for data on any referrals he has made to the DOJ on the grounds of domestic terrorism. Mayorkas did not offer the data, saying he would provide it after the hearing.

“Congressman, I will provide you with that information subsequent to this hearing,” Mayorkas replied to Steube. “I do not have that statistic. I will provide the data to you.”

The pair continued to clash on the subject, with Steube interrupting Mayorkas to demand he name one such case off the top of his head. Mayorkas continued to decline to answer.

    Mayorkas is an embarassment to America, and especially to the many positive contributions that Cuban Americans have brought to our country.

    Mayorkas is a repeat of Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security during Obama’s first term. She invoked the extremely harsh TSA enhancements added on in 2011 that did had no effect on minimizing terrorist efforts to hijack aircraft. The “enhancements” only effect was greater expense, delays in boarding aircraft, and increased personal prodding and massaging of travelers who have had no choice but to accept the government intrusion into their bodies and limitations on carry-on personal effects.

Illegal migrants in custody reaches new high: ‘We must sleep at night knowing we are the reason this nation is in trouble’

An exclusive report by the Daily Caller News Foundation reveals the number of illegal migrants in the custody of Border Patrol nationwide has surpassed 22,000 as of Tuesday evening. The Daily Caller exclusively obtained internal Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data providing the information.

The report also shows how extremely fast the numbers are rising. As of the evening of August 10 Border Control had nearly 17,000 illegal migrants in custody, up from 7,696 two months prior on June 8. Just this week there were 8,923 migrant encounters by CBP on Monday and 7,730 illegal migrants released into the country, according to the new data.

Democratic El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser said Saturday that the city is at its “breaking point,” while Democratic Eagle Pass Mayor declared a state of emergency in recent days. Agents have also become increasingly vocal about what they are enduring. One agent stationed along the northern border said “Our duties now revolve around virtual processing and the facilitation of the inflow of illegal migration into the United States. The scenario unfolds with agents stationed at their respective posts, immersed in virtual paperwork, striving to cope with the overwhelming surge of illegal migrants, far outpacing our capacity to process them efficiently. This has rendered our border exposed and vulnerable.”

“In my extensive 13-year tenure, I find myself grappling with a reality I never envisaged. Our current circumstances defy logic; established policies, our solemn oaths, and the very essence of our professional calling have been eroded. Instead, we find ourselves relegated to mere affirmations from higher authorities, commending our efforts. The days of border patrol, the pursuit of illicit substances—what we colloquially term ‘dope’—have yielded to a role resembling that of caretakers,” the agent added.

“We are upset because what they are making us do is break our oath we pledged. They have taken our job and made it a joke. We have endangered the country in so many ways. We must sleep at night knowing we are the reason this nation is in trouble,” another agent said.
