Rep. French Hill, a GOP politician from Arkansas, sounded off on how Team Biden has handled the situation at the border during a Friday appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” declaring that the situation is untenable and cheering Mayorkas for his dissent from how Biden is handling the border. Speaking on that, Hill said:
“On Title 42, it was a critical element in President Trump’s effort to control and secure our border. Democrats in Congress don’t support this move to abandon Title 42 in May either.
“So, I’m glad to hear potentially that Secretary Mayorkas is pushing back against this policy that’s coming direct from the White House.”
For reference, a recent article in Axios claimed that Mayorkas has voiced dissent over Biden’s border, reporting that:
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has privately told members of Congress he’s concerned with the Biden administration’s handling of its plans to lift Title 42 on May 23, sources familiar with the conversations tell Axios.
[…]The private airings by Mayorkas, recounted by lawmakers, belie public posturing that the administration is prepared for a potential influx of migrants. The secretary is not only charged with protecting the border but overseeing the process of ending the Trump-era immigration control.
[…]Members and their staff told Axios that, after Mayorkas walked them through the DHS’ preparations for the potential border surge, they did not feel the administration had reached the level of preparedness needed to carry out the operation successfully by May 23.
Continuing his monologue, Hill blasted the disastrous way in which Biden has handled the border and called on Mayorkas to respond by resigning, saying:
“From the time Joe Biden was sworn into office, he cast away all the border policies that had been fought over for four years that were finally working and making some sense of securing our border, keeping drugs and human trafficking out, allowing people to seek asylum in an orderly manner, and Biden replaced those with nothing.
And so, he’s created this massive crisis which is why I think finally you see some Democratic pushback in the Congress against what is a completely chaotic policy. And I think Secretary Mayorkas should resign in disgust over the inability to secure the border, and I think that’s due directly from White House staff meddling with the mission of the Homeland Security Department.
Title 42 was an immigration authority created under the guise of public health that was used by immigration officials under the Trump Administration to more quickly deport illegals.
Team Biden’s decision to get rid of it is predicted to lead to a “mass migration event” at the border, one that will likely swamp border defense resources and make it even more impossible for the already overstretched and overburdened border officials to stem the tide of humanity that’s heading here.
Perhaps somehow disaster will be averted, but if the Axios article is to be believed, it sure doesn’t sound like Team Biden knows how to stop what’s coming.
