(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Controversial secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas is facing fresh calls for his resignation, with Republican legislators pointing to his “complete failure” to lead the department and protect the United States from an invasion of millions of illegal aliens pouring over the southern border with Mexico.
In a letter sent by Rep. Kevin Hern of Oklahoma and signed by 45 other Republicans in the House of Representatives, Mayorkas was accused of failing to execute the primary mission of his department, which is to “secure our nation from its many threats.”
The letter called on him to resign as Secretary of Homeland Security for his “refusal to enforce the immigration laws.”
Some of the other top Republican names who signed the letter included Rep. Tom Tiffany of Wisconsin, Rep. Chip Roy of Texas, and Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado.
It’s no wonder they’re angry with his performance on the border, either. Under Mayorkas’ leadership, the construction of the southern border wall came to a sudden halt (despite the work having already been paid for), and more than 2 million illegal aliens have been apprehended by border agents since Biden took office.
Many border agents have even argued with Mayorkas about their inability to properly do their job. Back in January, audio was obtained of Mayorkas making remarks to border agents in the Yuma section of the border in Arizona. During the remarks, members of the border force turned their back on the secretary after accusing him of preventing them from doing their jobs.
Mayorkas responded, “you can turn your back on me, but I won’t turn my back on you.”
A spokesperson from the department told Fox that Mayorkas has “invited frank discussion” on the matter of border security.
But…will he start doing his job?
Will the Biden administration ever enforce immigration laws on the border again?
