GOP senators are finally battling against President Joe Biden’s pro-migration borders chief, Alejandro Mayorkas.
The pushback was revealed Wednesday afternoon in a hearing held by the Senate Homeland and Governmental Affairs Committee.
“Now is the time for you to resign,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) told Mayorkas.
“You’re not enforcing the law,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) told the DHS chief.
“It’s an extraordinary failure,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told Mayorkas. “He’s crying for a leadership change.”
But Mayorkas is using his expertise in immigration law to evade criticism from lawmakers.
Mayorkas also argues that the border chaos can only be resolved by agreeing to his demand for a major expansion of immigration, including expanded programs to supply even more workers that cut wages for American employers. “Legislation is a solution,” he said.
