Texas Rep Unleashes Hell on Mayorkas for Border Crisis
Here we are more than a year after Joe Biden was wrongly sworn into office and the border crisis has only gotten worse.
Several members of the Customs and Border Patrol have resigned from their positions because they know that it’s a farce and they don’t want to be a part of it. They have even spoken out against the Biden regime regarding how it’s being handled, but the mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about that obviously.
However, there is someone who definitely does want to talk about it, and in fact, they did talk about it recently in front of a House committee.
During a hearing on Thursday, Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) slammed Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, repeatedly questioning his claim that the US has “operational control” of the southern border.
Roy challenged Mayorkas on the number of illegal immigrants in the US, claiming that it was misleading to pretend that the Biden administration had any control over the border based on the legal definition and the number of illegal immigrants who remained unchecked.
“Mr. Secretary, there have been over one million individuals put into proceedings or released into the United States on your watch,” Roy began.
Roy then turned the question to Mayorkas, asking whether he believed the number of illegal immigrants released into the country would go up or down with a budget increase.
“Would the number of people being released into the United States under current law, would it go down no matter how much you increased your budget?” he asked. “It would not, as they said. Do you agree, yes or no?”
“Congressman, if I understand your question correctly, when individuals are in the United States and they make a claim for asylum —” Mayorkas replied.
“The number would not go down, is the answer, right? Yes or no? That’s what they said, and I think you’ve just answered, it would not go down,” Roy repeated. “The only plan that you offer, the plan you just offered, is to process aliens faster and encourage more to come.”
“We know that to be true. I know it’s true, you know it’s true, cartels know it’s true, and people around the world know it’s true, and that’s why people are coming,” Roy continued.
“That’s false,” Mayorkas objected, but Roy pushed back, saying that it wasn’t false and adding, “The entirety of your plan says that.”
“The Secure Fence Act of 2006 says what?” Roy pressed on Mayorkas. “That the Secretary of Homeland Security shall take all actions the secretary determines necessary to achieve and maintain operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders. Will you testify under oath, right now, do we have operational control, yes or no?”
“Yes, we do,” Mayorkas replied.
“We have operational control of the border?” Roy repeated.
“Yes, we do, and Congressman, we are working to —” Mayorkas tried again.
“Listen to what — operational control defined,” Roy continued. “In this section, the term ‘operational control’ means the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband. Do you stand by your testimony that we have operational control in light of this definition?”

If you ask me, we do not have operational control. If we did, then we would not have millions of people coming through illegally.
