Mayorkas: ‘Don’t Think We Expected the Rapidity’ of Migrant Surge in Del Rio

September 22, 2021

During a segment of an interview that aired on Monday’s NBC Nightly News, open-borders Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said DHS didn’t expect “the rapidity of the increase” of the approximately 15,000 mostly Haitian migrants gathered at the Texas border in Del Rio.

NBC News Correspondent Morgan Chesky asked Mayorkas if there were enough resources in place to handle this surge of illegal aliens.

Mayorkas responded, “I don’t think we expected the rapidity of the increase that occurred.”

He also defended the deportations of Haitians saying, “We are realistic about the human tragedy of this. But we have a responsibility, not only to the well-being of the migrants themselves, but the well-being of the local communities and the American public.”

Exactly right. The American people deserve better than to have the Biden administration fail to resolve the immigration flood that has overwhelmed our border.
