‘RESIGN NOW’: Mayorkas Gets Torched by Border Patrol, AZ Gov Says Resign Now

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas recently met with Border Patrol agents to discuss their frustrations about what’s happening at the southern border —and according to an exclusive report from TownHall, the meeting was a disaster.

“The job has not gotten any easier over the last few months and it was very, very difficult throughout 2021. I know apprehending families and kids is not what you signed up to do. And now we got a composition that is changing even more with Cubans, Venezuelans, Nicaraguans, and the like, it just gets more difficult,” Mayorkas said in a leaked recording.

“I know the policies of this administration are not particularly popular with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, but that’s the reality and let’s see what we can do within that framework,” Mayorkas added.

“An agent pressed Mayorkas on how DHS can reconcile saying border security is the main mission for Border Patrol, yet agents are unable to patrol the border due to the policies the Biden administration has in place. Border Patrol agents are being utilized to process the thousands of illegal immigrants,” TH reports.

“Mayorkas said he appreciated ‘the candor’ and explained he is working to ensure agents have the personnel, funding, and equipment they need to do their job. The agent replied they have been hearing that answer for years.”

Another agent said it has been “’demoralizing’ to see politicians and others ‘demonize’ Border Patrol when they often save illegal immigrants from injury and death. It is a possible reference to the outrage that was started over false claims that agents on horseback were ‘whipping’ people illegally crossing the border in the Del Rio Sector, which included Mayorkas, Vice President Kamala Harris, and President Joe Biden,” TH added.

Governor of Arizona Doug Ducey shared the article on Twitter, calling for Mayorkas to resign:

“Secretary Mayorkas needs to resign NOW — and if he doesn’t, congress needs to dig in. This is the first time Mayorkas made it down to the Arizona border in the year since his Senate confirmation. From what I hear, the Border Patrol Agents were honest with Mayorkas about what’s happening at our southern border. And the truth hurts.”
