Mayorkas: 212,672 Migrant Encounters in July, Unsustainable

DHS Secretary Mayorkas visited Texas, where he met ‘privately’ with Border Patrol agents. He promised to get them hazard pay. But in a leaked recording from the meeting, he admitted that the current situation at the border is unsustainable.

A couple of days ago I was down in Mexico, and I said look, you know, if, if our borders are the first line of defense, we’re going to lose and this is unsustainable. We can’t continue like this, our people in the field can’t continue and our system isn’t built for it.”

For their part, Border Patrol agents know exactly what needs to be done.

“For those of us who have been around here long enough … we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. We’ve had this happen before. We know exactly how to shut it down. We need to make illegal entry illegal.”

The crux of the problem doesn’t just rest with the high numbers – a percentage of those illegals are infected with COVID and are just being dumped wherever into the United States. As Biden pushes vaccines and masks and demands all Americans comply, the vast amounts of illegals hitting the border have no such rule.

Mayorkas claimed that they were trying to comply with “Title 42.” Title 42 was a Trump era rule that sought to protect the US from illegals with Covid: it banned nearly all single adults and some families from entry without being given the chance for asylum. Advocacy groups didn’t like it and are pushing on Biden to remove that ban. But is it true that they are trying to comply with the ban? Not necessarily.

A CBS report on Thursday said that more than 83,000 migrant parents and children — about 88% – who were processed in July were allowed to seek asylum. The report said the Biden administration has “categorically shielded children from the policy.”

Mayorkas emphasized that many of those 212,000 resulted in expulsions under Title 42 public health protections, with 95,788 Title 42 removals. He also said that 27% of those encountered had at least one prior encounter in the past 12 months.


Is Mayorkas being totally honest? He has also stated that their policy on the border is working and that it all “takes time.” Even though he reportedly sounded sympathetic to the Border Patrol and offered to get them hazard pay for being in contact with so many Covid-infected migrants, believing him is tough. The Biden administration nominated as many left wing people as they could find for positions within the government. This flood of illegal immigrants is an agenda; there is a purpose to it. Overwhelm the system and things begin to crumble. Mayorkas said it himself: unsustainable.
