Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) says DHS Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas was telling the truth when he told him that Pres. Joe Biden’s border policies are working.  

Sen. Hawley, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, made the observation Monday while discussing the border crisis with Fox News Channel’s Kayleigh McEnany:

“And I tell you what, Kayleigh, I’ve had Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s Homeland Security secretary, say to me directly multiple times that the Biden border policies are working – and that’s them telling the truth.”

“They are working, because they want the border open: that is their policy,” Sen. Hawley explained.

“So, this is all because of Joe Biden. It’s one hundred percent on him,” Hawley said, laying blame for the flood of illegal aliens squarely on Pres. Joe Biden:

“He’s the reason why the border’s open. There hasn’t been any change in the law from the last president, President Trump, to this president. The only change has been Joe Biden.”

“And, he’s the one American workers can look to and say, ‘Man, you are costing us our jobs, you are costing us our security, you’re costing us our farmland.’ It is on him,” the senator added.

The Border Patrol Union echoed Hawley’s observation Monday, posting a social media message to Biden:

“Dear Joe,

“You OWN this catastrophic disaster at the border - lock, stock and barrel. You created it. You nursed it along. You encouraged it. You facilitated it. It's all yours.

“Don't run from it now like a coward.

“Signed, The BP agents you've thrown under the bus.”

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives impeached Sec. Mayorkas on two counts of refusing to secure the U.S. southwest border, as Fox News explains:

“Two impeachment articles were approved against Mayorkas by the House Homeland Security Committee. One accused him of having ‘refused to comply with Federal immigration laws’ and the other of having violated ‘public trust.’”


“The office of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Mayorkas' impeachment trial will begin later this month.”
