“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.

Although it has been widely believed, a senior Saudi Arabian official has accused Tehran of having “engineered a war in Gaza” for the purpose to interfere with Jerusalem’s attempts to normalize relations with Riyadh. The unnamed official then described the regime as “a country that sponsors terrorism, and it should have been stopped a long time ago.”

In an interview with Israel’s Kan public broadcaster, the anonymous individual said that “any suspicious object” entering his country’s airspace is intercepted by the Kingdom’s defense forces. The comment may suggest that there was some level of participation by the Saudis in neutralizing the missiles and attack drones that the Islamic Republic fired at Israel on Saturday, notes Foreign Desk News. 

Reports have confirmed that the American, British, French, and Jordanian militaries assisted the IDF in the air defenses during the bombardment.

Foreign Desk News states of the improving relations between Israel and its neighbors:

In 2020, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and Morocco signed normalization agreements with the Jewish state under the direction of the Trump administration, in what was called the Abraham Accords. The following January, Sudan would also join the reconciliation.

Any diplomatic understandings between Israel and Saudi Arabia would be seen as a big boost to regional security, considering the Kingdom is often viewed as the most powerful Arab-majority country in the world.
