The Director of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas needs to be replaced.  It does not much matter if he does so voluntarily or is fired by President Biden.  Of course, neither is about to happen soon – if at all.  Why not?  

Biden either does not know what a bad job Mayorkas is doing for the people of America – or Biden does not care because Mayorkas is doing – or not doing – what the President wants.  Even though the leftwing news media is avoiding reporting on the crisis at the southern border, the folks back home are finding out from other news sources – not only about the situation at the border, but from the impact of crime that is happening in their own communities.

As much as Biden, Mayorkas and the crony media want to sweep away what is happening at the border and its ancillary problems impacting millions of folks throughout America – those who must deal with the consequences of Democrats open border policies are sounding the alarm.

Mayors and sheriffs along the border are becoming more vociferous – and the men and women of the border patrol are reaching the breaking point.  Border agents recently engaged in a heated exchange with their supervisors over the inability to deal with the situation.

Mayorkas has also said he has the border agents’ backs.  He is correct.  In a recent appearance at the border, the rank-and-file agents turned their backs on him.  If you are stuck on CNN or MSNBC, you would not have seen that.

The gross numbers are staggering – in the hundreds-of-thousands, or even millions, depending on the time frame. It is not getting better — but getting worse.

But the real Devil is in the details.  While on those rare occasions that the leftwing media addresses the border, they portray the migrants as merely a bunch of Hispanic families – women and children – yearning for a better life.  That may be true of many – of even most — of them.  But there is a significant element of bad actors who are taking advantage of the situation – bringing crime and drugs into America.

The border patrol recently announced the seizure of enough deadly uncut Fentanyl to kill the entire population of Arizona.  While the open border is not the cause of the entire American drug epidemic, it is a more significant factor than those in Washington and in the media are willing to admit.

And it is not only a drug problem.  Those crossing the border with criminal intent contribute to the high crime rates and gang activities afflicting the segregated communities in our major cities.  This means murders, assaults, rapes, robberies, sex trafficking and random shootings.

The media images of all those mothers and children belie the reality that many of those children – who qualify for admission – are male teenagers up to 18-years-old – and in many cases older men who lie about their age.  If you see the images of those being surreptitiously being spread around the country in moonlit flights, you will not see infants, toddlers or even preteens.

AND … not all the border crossers are from Mexico or South America.  Border patrol recently detained a number of Syrians – only a small percentage of Middle Easterners who elude the border patrols.  Recently, 16 individuals on the FBI watch list were intercepted.  In one group, more than 60 percent were from non-Spanish-speaking nations.

Despite imposing Draconian measures on American citizens due to the Covid Pandemic, there is virtually no testing or vaccinating of those entering the country.

To take the pressure off the border – and to further conceal the problem – the Biden administration policy is to fly thousands of these male so-called “children” in the dark in unmarked aircrafts to communities around the nation – where leftwing Non-Government (Civic) Organizations (NGOs) receive them for placement among the general public.  Despite leg monitors, many of these young men simply fall off the government radar.

Those on the left also claim that the border patrol is returning those crossing the border.  At this point, they are said to be returning only approximately 60 percent of the arrivals – the lowest percentage ever.  And that figure is being challenged.

While so-called news platforms like CNN and especially MSNBC ignore the border situation – literally censoring the facts from the folks back home – the cancer of open borders continues to spread and metastasize.

America needs a Homeland Security Director who does his job – his constitutional obligation – and not the bidding of Biden & Co.  My joining the calls for Mayorkas removal will not have much effect on Biden.  Nor will the justified calls even get reported to the people from the folks in the leftwing of the Fourth Estate.  But for the sake of public safety, Mayorkas SHOULD go.

So, there ‘tis.
