EXCLUSIVE: Sara Carter speaks to Border Agents ‘Stunned’ at Mayorkas Statements

Published

Alejandro Mayorkas

In an exclusive report from the Texas border for “Hannity“, journalist Sara Carter spoke directly with multiple agents who were shocked at statements made by our Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a House committee hearing on Wednesday.

The agents also have a very strong message: illegal migrants should not be entrusting their lives to Mexican cartels.

“It’s incredible,” Carter told Hannity. “A lot of agents have been stunned by his statements.” In the hearing, Mayorkas said the greatest terrorist-related threat comes from “domestic violent extremism” rather than other threats such as those one a terror watchlist or criminals and terrorists who are being apprehending when attempting to cross the border in the U.S.

“I’ve been o the phone with ICE officers, as well as Border Patrol agents who really cannot believe what Alejandro Mayorkas is saying” said Carter.

“Many of them have called for his resignation. So this is certainly not going to end here and lawmakers are certainly going to continue to challenge him and the Biden administration in the upcoming months,” she said.

Those sentiments were echoed in the hearing by several questioners, including Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., who also went further and pledged support for impeachment proceedings against Mayorkas if the GOP wins back the House.

“I ask you as a man: own this thing,” Higgins entreated the secretary, adding that his handling of the border crisis is causing “disintegration of our national sovereignty.”

Carter also interviewed Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who urged migrants not to put their lives in smugglers’ hands:

“[Cartels] aren’t taking into consideration that this is human life, and they’re going to put them in dangerous conditions whether the back of a tractor-trailer, crossing the Rio Grande river at night with small children, or whether it’s putting them in a train car,” Ortiz said.

    In the frame of mind (demented as that is) of this administration, Mayorkas was being truthful; they ARE successfully managing the border, in that they are managing, facilitating, and accelerating the total and intentional destruction of the United States as founded.
    Everything they are doing, and not doing, is by design. And this administration, and their sycophantic supporters everywhere, know full well that NOTHING will be done to them to stop it. They know that there is, will never be, a scintilla of accountability for their treason.
    What are you prepared to do?

    Add Mayorkas’ name to the already long list of kippah-gang members united in an effort to reduce the USA to a simple entity of a globalist NWO and you’ll have the answer. Of Cuban origin Mayorkas is nevertheless a jew like Schitf, Schumer, Nadler, Feinstein, Murkowsky, Rosenstein, Weisman, Feinstein, Cohen, Bolton, Yovanovitch, Vindman, Soros, Zuckerberg, Singer, the former AG Barr (being a convert doesn’t make a jew a lesser jew) and the present one… and so many more… do you get the picture?

    With conditions the way they are in this country under Joe Biden’s Administration, we can not afford more people coming into this country, especially the criminals. Where will food come from to feed them when we cannot find enough food in the grocery stores to feed our own? Send all the illegals back and forbid anymore to come across the border.

    Biden should be Impeached for failure to Defend the Country. We are being Invaded and these Clowns aren’t doing anything to stop it. The 101st Airborne Division and the 82nd. could stop this in a week. These people won’t walk through machine gun fire and all we have now is Agents helping them climb up the bank of the Rio Grand.

    Biden should be in Fed. Prison and/or have his Citizenship revoked and then deported to China and/or Russia along with the rest of the DNC hierarchy.

    Trump will be the next Pres. of this Country but I hope someone in Washington will have the Guts to stand up and Charge Biden with Treason for what he has NOT done which is to Defend this Country from Invasion.

    He seems to come to Congress intentionally ignorant of any facts. The “I’ll get back to you” is his only response.

    My comment is in reference to what I recently wrote a senator. It is just one of the issues, which I speak to all who will listen. There are many demonic so called leaders who have been turned over to a reprobate mind set. In reference to Iran, and Israel, and in reference to playing both sides of the coin. In reference to what true leadership from God is all about. The love of money is the root of all evil.For many years their has been great corruption some by the highest so called leaders and we wonder where is the justice in all they have done because of wanting all power in reference to a one world order. Then when we do get a man in office who truly does care about America we know what has taken place. When a so called leader, and most others in that party don’t care about the one’s really hurting just like Jesus said take care of the widow, the orphan, and the poor, but instead trying to make their own agenda about trying to change our nation by letting all kinds of people cross our boarders so they can stay in power, so they can make our nation a socialist country, and what eventually becomes just like a baby being aborted and we wonder why all these are being allowed to happen, our God is not pleased by what certain people are trying to do to bring about their own power, money, and greed. Just remember who in the world would ever thought America instead of caring what the Lord has spoken, and showed trying to show is love, and mercy, and grace not only to our nation but many other countries,but our nation, instead of helping God has made it by our so called leaders a den of thieves. We better wake up before it is to late.We better be willing to vote for the one’s that truly care about the innocent in the womb, who truly is not ours but belong to God,he just gives them to us to nurture, and take care of until they grow up.Many of our so called leaders need a true lesson about leadership.

Is DACA a Trojan Horse? Multiple Criminal Juveniles Slipping Through

Published

on

Southern Border Patrol illegal immigrants

“Despite claims that DACA doesn’t allow for criminals to come into the country, the program has nonetheless allowed in many youths with gang affiliations and criminal records.”

Just The News put out an in depth analysis on a report highlighting how many criminal immigrant youths qualify for DACA but face few consequences. The report was released this week by George Fishman of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Democrats and immigration activists have long claimed that amnesty for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children wouldn’t include young people with a criminal history, but many of the juvenile beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) were affiliated with gangs and had arrest records when granted the program’s benefits, according to the report.

“Despite the successful framing of Dreamers and DACA recipients as young people with no criminal records, it turns out that many were affiliated with gangs and many had arrest records when granted DACA benefits, and many others saw their DACA status terminated because of criminal activity,” the report states.

Just The News details:

The publication comes as Democrats in Congress are preparing a legislative push before they lose control of the House early next year to provide a pathway to citizenship for recipients of DACA. The Obama administration established the program in 2012 to grant protection from deportation for so-called “Dreamers,” illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

Proponents of DACA and the Dream Act, a longtime legislative proposal to grant amnesty to Dreamers, have consistently said the program won’t help people with criminal records.

Only “young people who are poised to contribute to our country and have met strict requirements regarding moral character and criminal history would be eligible,” said then-Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano in 2011, for example.

“These individuals do not pose a risk to public safety,” Napolitano emphasized. “They do not pose a risk to national security.”

Since then, numerous Democrats and immigration activists have expressed similar sentiments, claiming those with a “criminal history” or “criminal record” don’t benefit from DACA.

The DACA application form asks if the potential beneficiary has ever been a member of a gang, killed or seriously hurt someone, committed sexual assault, or “ever been arrested for, charged with, or convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, including incidents handled in juvenile court, in the United States?”

However, “in actuality, the DACA program is more lenient,” according to the report, which noted certain misdemeanors aren’t deemed significant enough to bar someone from DACA eligibility. Plus, the form’s instructions state that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), may consider granting DACA protections even if someone was arrested or detained and charges were filed.

“If USCIS determines that you have been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more misdemeanors not occurring on the same date and not arising out of the same act, omission, or scheme of misconduct, or that you otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety, USCIS is unlikely to defer action in your case, except where DHS determines that exceptional circumstances exist,” the instructions continue.

Of this standard, the Center for Immigration Studies report quips, “It is certainly comforting to know that, despite Secretary Napolitano’s assurances, USCIS reserves the right to grant DACA to an alien who poses a threat to national security or public safety, who has been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more misdemeanors.”

Over the years, Republican senators have penned multiple letters to DHS about alleged DACA recipients arrested or charged with serious crimes such as murder and sex trafficking.

In 2017, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced a major operation targeting gang members and associates involved in transnational criminal activity, noting three of those arrested had been DACA beneficiaries.

That same year, the Washington Examiner reported that 622 DACA recipients had their status revoked that year due to criminal activity and that a total of 2,139 had their status pulled from 2013-2017.

“It confirms that the DACA screening process was woefully inadequate,” Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies told the Examiner at the time. “The eligibility bar was set very low, explicitly allowing people with multiple misdemeanor and certain felony convictions to be approved. Only a handful of the applicants were ever interviewed, and only rarely was the information on the application ever verified.”

According to data provided in 2018 by USCIS to lawmakers, hundreds of individuals who obtained DACA benefits that were later revoked due to criminal and/or gang involvement were still living in the country and at large. The data also included a list of more than 45 gang affiliations of the ex-DACA criminals.

USCIS released data in 2019 indicating 7.8% of all approved DACA applicants had an arrest record — 59,786 individuals, of whom 53,792 had a record before approval and 7,814 had a later arrest. The agency also noted about 1% of approved DACA applicants have an arrest in any given year, many for severe crimes.

“The truth is that we let those with criminal arrests for sexually assaulting a minor, kidnapping, human trafficking, child pornography, or even murder be provided protection from removal,” said former USCIS Director L. Francis Cissna.

The new report noted that juvenile adjudications aren’t treated as deportable convictions under immigration law.

The USCIS states in its policy manual for adjudicators that “findings of juvenile delinquency are not considered criminal convictions for purposes of immigration law.”

Regarding DACA specifically, the manual states: “With respect to juvenile delinquency records … USCIS does not consider a juvenile delinquency determination a conviction for immigration purposes, consistent with longstanding DACA policy and [Board of Immigration Appeals] precedent. Also consistent with longstanding DACA policy, USCIS does not consider juvenile delinquency adjudications as automatically disqualifying for DACA.”

Still, young immigrants adjudicated as delinquent can face consequences. As the USCIS policy manual for adjudicators states:

[While] findings of juvenile delinquency are not considered criminal convictions for purposes of immigration law … certain grounds of inadmissibility do not require a conviction. In some cases, certain conduct alone may be sufficient to trigger an inadmissibility ground. Furthermore … USCIS will consider findings of juvenile delinquency on a case-by-case basis based on the totality of the evidence to determine whether a favorable exercise of discretion is warranted.

According to Fishman, lawmakers and federal agencies should be focusing on setting clear guidelines and ensuring consequences for criminal activity.

“Regardless of one’s views as to the ‘deservingness’ as a general matter of illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as minors by their parents, brought to the U.S. by smugglers paid for by their parents, or who simply came to the U.S. on their own accord, those who are criminals (whether convicted in criminal court or adjudicated delinquent in juvenile court) should surely face immigration consequences,” the report declares. “The lasting devastation to the lives of crime victims and their families is not wiped away simply because the perpetrators are minors, even if those minors were ‘brought to the U.S. through no fault of their own.'”
