At a press event where GOP leadership introduced pro-American immigration reforms, Rep. Mark Green (R-TN), the chairman of the House homeland defense committee, declared that President Biden’s border chief Alejandro Mayorkas is intentionally flooding the United States with economic migrants.
“Every single thing Alejandro Mayorkas is doing is to speed more people into this country… It’s intentional,” Green said. Speaking after GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) urged, “Let’s get back to the legal system,” Green leaned in and said:
The more you incentivize people, the bigger the wave will be. And all the processing centers do is provide more incentive [for migrants to say] — “Oh, the door is even more open — all I got to do is get a coyote from the drug cartel to fill out my CBP One app for me.”
I’m sure they’re paying another little extra fee to get that done.
Every single thing Alejandro Mayorkas is doing is to speed more people into this country. You take a look at his budget. It’s intentional. They cut CBP [the Customs and Border Protection agency] and put billions more into a contingency fund to bring more people into the country. This is intentional!
And the drug cartels are seizing the day to get more fentanyl in here and make more money. And you ask the parents of that little baby – how many of you have children? — [who] was crawling around on the floor of a [rental apartment] in Florida. The tenant before had fentanyl — [now] a little baby was dead. Every single American is at risk for these ridiculous open-door policies.
Well, we’ve had enough. In these bills, the men and women who’ve done the work to put this together, are saying No More!
Green is also headlining the GOP’s push to impeach Mayorkas.
