Stephen Miller appeared on The Ingraham Angle Monday to put the Biden administration on blast for the deteriorating situation at the border. The former senior advisor to President Trump claimed that many who cross the border aren’t being immediately deported.
“If you count we describe as gotaways, it’s well over a million and counting,” Miller said of the number of released migrants. “In other words, in addition to all the people who were caught and release nearly hundred percent of families, nearly hundred percent of illegal alien minors, as well as people who are asserting fraudulent fear claims — plus the gotways, well over a million and that’s a conservative estimate.”
Meanwhile, under Trump, “we had zero–zero–releases,” Miller claimed. There were some exceptions for medical emergencies.
On the other hand, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed during a Senate hearing Tuesday that there is an increased effort in expelling migrants at the border. August saw only a 5% decrease in migrant encounters at the border. Still, Mayorkas claimed to charter an increase of flights to expel migrants on.

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas
On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.
At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.
The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”
In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.
“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”
He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.
The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.
“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
