EXCLUSIVE: Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody on Friday launched an inside Department of Homeland Security doc that she says contradicts DHS Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas’ testimony to House lawmakers concerning the ongoing border disaster.
Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan requested Mayorkas on Thursday if he thought “that maybe, just maybe, your actions and your policies are encouraging migrants to come to the border?”
“I do not,” Mayorkas replied.
The DHS doc, which Moody completely shared with Fox News Digital, listed “Perceptions of favorable U.S. immigration policies” as one of many causes migrants have given for surging to the border.
Other causes included pursuit of financial and academic alternatives. The doc seems to be from early 2021.
“It has been two months since I called on Secretary Mayorkas to resign in light of his flagrant neglect of the crisis at the border and his indifference to the safety of Americans,” Moody advised Fox News Digital in a press release.
“Secretary Mayorkas’s misrepresentations to Congress, however, are beyond the pale. Congressional leadership across the political spectrum should be appalled and take swift action. Florida will continue leading the fight against President Biden’s reckless immigration policies,” the Florida legal professional normal added.
DHS did not instantly reply to Fox News Digital’s request for remark.
Border crossings have surged to historic ranges throughout Biden’s time in workplace. The border disaster is barely anticipated to accentuate on account of President Biden’s introduced ending of Title 42.
Mayorkas on Wednesday claimed that the Biden administration has “effectively managed” the border disaster.
“We inherited a broken and dismantled system that is already under strain … only Congress can fix this,” Mayorkas testified.
“Yet, we have effectively managed an unprecedented number of non-citizens seeking to enter the United States.”
