Everyone should have known that Mayorkas was a minion to bring about the final transformation of Barack Obama’s fantasy for the United States when he tweeted out what he did upon being confirmed the immigration Czar for the radically corrupt administration of Joe Biden.
He made reference to ‘America’, but does Mayorkas, a Cuban by birth, really understand who the United States of America is and who the citizens are?
It doesn’t feel like it, watching the entitlement of the migrants who want to cross our borders and come and live in our neighborhoods.
Watch as Mayorkas tantrums at questions about his disastrous job protecting the United States of America:
At the height of the humanitarian crisis Monday, more than 3,300 unprocessed migrants were left in squalor on El Paso streets even while there were beds available in shelters. That number of unhoused people creates a powder keg of problems amid the desperation, local leaders say: trash and excrement, the potential for migrants to be targeted for prostitution and a trapped population for human smugglers.
Is that how Mayorkas helps people?
Did he refer to his job as helping and protecting all “Americans,” in that 2020 tweet meaning he sees Southern and Central Americans as people under his protection? Whatever he meant, he should be judged by his actions, which have caused a massive humanitarian crisis.
It is a crisis that is affecting countries far away too, as people huddle together to get ready to flee to USA:
The care Mayoras has for people of “America” is costing the US a massive amount of money as USA today reported:
The federal government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to help communities along the border — as well as major destinations like New York City — care for migrants and prevent overcrowding of short-term federal holding facilities.
Since the funding stream was created in 2019, it was intended for migrants who had been processed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. It was not supposed to cover food and shelter for migrants who entered illegally and have not sought asylum.
But an internal government watchdog said last year the Federal Emergency Management Agency needed better oversight of its Emergency Food and Shelter Program, which provides grants both for migrant services and to help a wider population.
That was how Mayorkas helped all those people.
As we reported, one group of activists in Chicago is not happy about what they see is unfair treatment:
Consider this article from 2020 upon his nomination to the Department of Homeland Security:
Alejandro Mayorkas, formerly the top federal prosecutor in Los Angeles and an ex-deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, was nominated Monday by President-elect Joe Biden to the post of DHS secretary.
Mayorkas, who has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate three times throughout his career, is the first Latino and immigrant nominated to serve in the position.
Mayorkas was born in Havana, Cuba, and was the highest-ranking Cuban American to serve in the Obama-Biden Administration. His family brought him to the Los Angeles area when he was an infant. Mayorkas received his bachelor’s degree with distinction from the UC Berkeley and a law degree from Loyola Law School.
“When I was very young, the United States provided my family and me a place of refuge,” Mayorkas wrote on Twitter in response to his appointment. “Now, I have been nominated to by the DHS secretary and oversee the protection of all Americans and those who flee persecution in search of a better life for themselves and their loved ones.”
Did anyone ask him what he meant by that?
NBC went on:
In a 30-year career as a law enforcement official and a nationally recognized lawyer in the private sector, Mayorkas served as the deputy DHS secretary in the Obama-Biden Administration from 2013 to 2016, and as the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services from 2009 to 2013.
Mayorkas, graduated from Beverly Hills High School, and as a prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, helped convict so-called “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss on charges of federal conspiracy, tax fraud and money laundering charges. As the chief of the office, Mayorkas also oversaw the prosecution of Mexican Mafia members in death penalty proceedings, the prosecution of Buford O. Furrow Jr. for the murder of a federal postal worker and the hate-motivated shooting of children at the Los Angeles Jewish Community Center, the prosecution of Litton Industries for the payment of bribes abroad, and the takedown of the violent 18th Street gang using racketeering laws.
During his tenure at DHS, he led the implementation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, which provides deportation protection for immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children by their parents.
Mayorkas also negotiated cybersecurity and homeland security agreements with foreign governments, led the department’s response to Ebola and Zika, helped build and administer the Blue Campaign to combat human trafficking and developed an emergency relief program for orphaned youth following the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Mayorkas also created the Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate aimed at ensuring the integrity of the legal immigration system.
Mayorkas began his government service in the Department of Justice, where he served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Central District of California, specializing in the prosecution of white collar crime. After nearly nine years as a federal prosecutor, he became the youngest U.S. Attorney in the nation, overseeing cases including the investigation and prosecution of
financial fraud, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, public corruption, violent crime, cybercrime, environmental crime, international money laundering and securities fraud.
Mayorkas has also led a legal career in the private sector, at O’Melveny & Myers and most recently as a partner in the firm WilmerHale, where he has specialized in strategic counseling and crisis management. He serves several nonprofit organizations focused on providing legal services to the poor, refugee resettlement and education for underprivileged youth.
“We have no time to lose when it comes to our national security and foreign policy,” Biden said in a statement. “I need a team ready on Day One to help me reclaim America’s seat at the head of the table, rally the world to meet the biggest challenges we face, and advance our security, prosperity and values.”
Now Mayorkas is unhappy that US Federal judges are shutting down his transformation with lawsuits. Newsweek reported on the details:
Immigrants’ rights advocates are suing the Biden administration over a new asylum ban that they say “largely mimics” Trump-era policies that have been blocked by the courts. The lawsuit comes at a time of heightened focus on the U.S.-Mexico border, as the controversial Title 42 officially expires.
Title 42—a measure that dates back to 1944 but was reinstated by the Centers for Disease Control at the height of the pandemic under then-president Donald Trump—has been used for the past three years to stem the flow of immigration. Under Title 42, U.S. government authorities were authorized to swiftly expel migrants at U.S. land borders to prevent the spread of diseases, namely, COVID-19.
It remained in place while other COVID-19 measures were dropped but came to an end on May 11. Critics claimed the scheme was being used as a blunt tool to prevent migration to the U.S. and was preventing asylum seekers from reaching safety. According to CNN, Title 42 was used to turn back around 2.5 million migrants between March 2020 and November 2022.
The end of the policy has been accompanied by a surge in the number of migrants arriving at the border and hoping to claim asylum in the U.S. Mexican government data quoted by the New York Times shows that tens of thousands of migrants have crossed Mexican territory to reach the U.S. border since early April.
Officials in Southern states, such as Texas Governor Greg Abbott, have warned of the potential chaos that could follow the end of Title 42, as the termination of the measure could be seen as encouragement for migrants to cross the border into the U.S.
But Title 42 is now being replaced by the pre-existing section of U.S. code known as Title 8. This has more severe consequences for migrants who do not qualify for entry into the country as they will not only be deported, but will also be banned from re-entering the country for at least five years.
The Biden administration has also introduced a new policy, which is the one immigration rights advocates are now criticizing—and suing Biden for.
Part of the Biden administration’s new border policy is a rule which considers migrants ineligible to seek asylum in the U.S. if they’ve passed through another country before reaching U.S. land borders. An exception is made for migrants who have secured an appointment through the CBP One App, according to officials.
The rule, proposed earlier this year, will presume migrants are ineligible for asylum in the U.S. if they didn’t first seek refuge in a country they transited through, like Mexico, on the way to the border.
Migrants who secure an appointment through the CBP One app will be exempt, according to officials. But immigration rights advocates argue that appointments are “scarce” and the mobile application used to obtain them “flawed.”
If migrants are found ineligible for asylum, they could be removed through the speedy deportation process known as “expedited removal” that would bar them from the U.S. for five years.
The American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU of Northern California, Center for Gender & Refugee Studies and National Immigrant Justice Center have jointly filed a legal challenge to the Biden administration over its new border policy.
“People fleeing persecution have a legal right to seek asylum, no matter how they reach the border,” said Melissa Crow, director of litigation at the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies, in a statement.
“Our asylum system was designed to protect people fleeing imminent threats to their lives, who do not have the luxury of waiting for an elusive appointment or for an application to be adjudicated in a country where they are in danger. The Biden administration has had over two years to set up a fair and humane asylum process post-Title 42. That it has instead chosen to resurrect and repackage illegal Trump-era policies is reprehensible.”
