L'ex direttore ad interim dell'ICE Tom Homan si è unito “Sala stampa americana” Mercoledì per affrontare l'impennata e ha affermato che il segretario del DHS Alejandro Mayorkas sta mentendo sul confine meridionale e che deve essere messo sotto accusa.
“We’ve got over 66 known suspected terrorists arrested by CBP because of the open border. If they’ve arrested 66, let’s go back to 900,000 got-aways. How many of them entered the country illegally, got away, that are known suspected terrorists? This man, Secretary Mayorkas, needs to be impeached,” he told Griff Jenkins.
A new report released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows that Agenti della pattuglia di frontiera apprehended ten people on a U.S. terror watch list in the month of July.
Il 66 people caught at the border in Fiscal Year 2022 is more than twice the numbers from the previous five years combined. Nel 2017, encounters with people on the terror watchlist truly were rare, as they numbered just two. That number jumped to 6 in Fiscal Year 2018, but then went down to three in 2019 e 2020. Fiscal Year 2021 saw a significant uptick, as there were 15 such encounters that year.
Homan said the influx is historic and emphasized that these numbers do not include got-aways.
“You’re looking at over 4 million encounters since Biden became president. You add to that, we’re at 900,000 got-aways now. They average about 50,000 got-aways a month.”
Homan did not hold back and claimed that DHS Secretary Mayorkas committed perjury by telling Congress that the southern border is secure.
“The man has zero integrity. He said the same thing while under oath, testifying in front of Congress. It was perjury. Day one, if the Republicans take back Congress, he needs to be impeached. He has violated the oath he took. He’s made this country less safe.”
Homan said it is time to return to the border policies of the Trump administration which created “the most secure border” of his lifetime.
