Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”
“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.
“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.
Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”
Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”
“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”
In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”
Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”

Over 600 ‘gotaway’ illegal immigrants disappeared into the U.S. in just one weekend
A video shows just one group of over 150 migrants crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX. FOX LA’s Bill Melugin reports the group is virtually all adults.
The group of adults crossing was merely one moment in time “as the sun came up” but that scenario occurs non-stop. The Border Patrol in the Del Rio sector explains that an unbelievably high amount of over 600 individuals simply are described as “gotaways.”
That means not only are their whereabouts within the United States completely unknown, but so are their identities. They could be human traffickers, drug smugglers, victims, terrorists, kidnapped children, etc.
Not only did the 600 plus people disappear into the country, but the high number was in just one weekend. News also broke of the arrest of a rapist with a forcible sodomy conviction of a migrant who illegally crossed the border in Virginia.
Another huge single group of 150+ migrants crossed illegally into Eagle Pass, TX as the sun came up this morning. Almost all single adults.
