Biden's DHS Uses Border Visit to Push Amnesty for Illegal Aliens
Department of Homeland Security had ulterior motives for visit
Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas had an ulterior motive for his visit to the United States-Mexico border, which was touting amnesty for illegal aliens.
During a press conference in El Paso, Texas, with Kamala Harris, Mayorkas expressed his hopes that amnesty for illegal aliens would be approved by Congress.
“I am hopeful that Congress will pass immigration reform to fix a system that everyone recognizes is broke, and I am thankful for [Sen. Dick Durbin’s] years-long effort and championing this effort,” Mayorkas said.
Mayorkas said the DHS's role under Biden was “to build safe and legal pathways for people” to remain in the United States indefinitely.
His remarks are a stark contrast to Donald Trump, who sought to cut illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and human trafficking.
Mayorkas's amnesty push comes as Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) has said he is crafting amnesty legislation that would be sent to Senate Democrats for negotiating.
Amnesty would come as 16 million Americans remain jobless, while a further 5.3 million Americans are underemployed.
Last month, Mayorkas declared his agency's "highest priority" is to "bring" migrants "into this country safely."
Mayorkas says DHS is making it a "priority" to reunite foreign nationals with their family members, despite concerns about illegal immigration from taxpaying Americans.

Speaking to MSNBC in March, Mayorkas said the Biden administration was planning to import migrants to the United States to reunite them with relatives who had already entered the country illegally.
The DHS secretary claims the move sought to counter deportations during President Donald Trump’s term in office.
“We need … [to] develop a process where we can systemically bring them into this country safely and begin the healing process,” he claimed, according to a transcript prepared and released by his DHS.
Roughly 185,000 single economic migrants have run past Mayorkas’s diverted border agents since October, a source told Breitbart News.
“It’s not about righting the wrong of the past; it’s about restoring the conscience of our government,” said Mayorkas, who is now drafting regulations that will help migrants dodge the popular laws that require the deportation of migrant workers from Americans’ national labor market.
The deep public opposition to labor migration is built on the widespread recognition that legal and illegal migration moves money away from most Americans’ pocketbooks and families.
