Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas appeared woefully unprepared before the Senate Homeland Security Committee Tuesday. He was joined by Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray and Director Counter Terrorism Sector Christine Abizaid.
First, Ranking Member Rob Portman (R-OH) read from the Rodney Scott letter. Scott is a Former U.S. Border Patrol Chief, who sounded the alarm on the border crisis via a letter that became part of the record of the hearing.
“He says in October 2020, he was told that 91% of total encounters were processed under Title 42 and people were expelled in a matter of 90 minutes,” Portman read. “A report I received in August of 2021 indicated that nearly 53% were granted exemptions to Title 42, with the majority being released into the United States.”
Meanwhile Mayorkas, when asked how many migrants were detained, deported, processed for expedited removal and or expelled, said he did not know.
“I do not have the data before me,” Mayorkas told the committee. Then, they all took a break from the hearing. But even after they returned, Mayorkas still didn’t have the numbers that multiple senators asked for. Yet he was fresh from a visit from the border’s Del Rio Texas section.
So Portman’s solution is to have more stern and clear messaging about the border being closed. According to him, nothing else seems to be working.
“This notion that this can all be solved by investing in Latin America, particularly in the Northern Triangle countries,” Portman went on, “I’m not against that. We’ve done a lot of it. 3.6 billion in the last five years. That’s not the ultimate answer.”
For instance, swarms of Haitian migrants have landed at the border. As a result the border crisis as progressed further than these Northern Triangle countries.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
