Members of the House GOP unveiled impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for, well, essentially being terrible at protecting the homeland. House Homeland Security Chair Mark Green (R-TN) calls Mayorkas “utterly unfit.”
“He has neglected to fulfill his oath to secure the homeland and to comply with the laws of the United States,” Green says. “This secretary has intentionally opened our borders, sending a clear message worldwide: entering this country illegally means release into the interior, with little to no chance of removal — and the world has responded accordingly,” he added.
Just how bad is Alejandro Mayorkas? How dangerous is it to have a man like Mayorkas in a cabinet position that’s so vital to protecting Americans? Well…
According to The Daily Caller, a member of the Somali terror group al-Shabaab was released shortly after being caught illegally crossing the southern border near San Ysidro, California —and proceeded to roam freely throughout the country for nearly a year before being arrested in Minnesota just days ago!
From The Daily Caller:
The unnamed individual, who the memo only identifies as a member of the Somali terror group al-Shabaab, was released shortly after being caught illegally crossing the southern border near San Ysidro, California on March 13, 2023, according to the memo, which the DCNF is not publishing in order to protect the identity of a confidential source. The Terrorist Screening Center “deemed him a ‘mismatch’” after running his name through the terror watchlist, according to the memo, which was sent to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.
However, on January 18, 2024, the Terrorist Screening Center “made a redetermination” that the individual was “a confirmed member of al-Shabaab” and was involved in the use, manufacture or transport of explosives or firearms, the memo states. Two days later, ICE nabbed the al-Shabaab member in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Mayorkas has no idea who is entering the country, why they are here, and where they are going.
“Many within the Biden administration, including Secretary Mayorkas, have repeatedly assured us that the vetting process at the border is comprehensive and complete,” John Fabbricatore, a retired ICE field director who now sits on the National Immigration Center for Enforcement’s (NICE) board, told the DCNF. “However, we continue to witness alarming instances where terrorists are able to freely roam the United States for months after being released at the border before their criminal and terrorist histories come to light.”
This is one they caught —now, imagine the ones they don’t.
