“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.

Sara Carter on Democrats’ political agendas: ‘the hypocrisy is palpable’
The hypocrisy is “palpable” Sara Carter told Steve Hilton on his show Sunday. “All you have to do its listen to what the Democrats are saying to know they’re hypocrites” says Carter. They have District Attorneys who allow low bails or no bails and let criminals out on the streets, “so it appears they care about playing politics; and they play these politics against the constitution.”
Carter continues that if one were to take a trip with her down to the border, anyone would see that no one is in charge and it is utter chaos.
