FAIR: Biden's 'wrecking ball' has created border crisis

Alejandro Mayorkas (DHS head)An immigration enforcement advocacy organization is countering claims by the Biden administration that there's no border "crisis" at the present time – only a "challenge."

During a recent news conference, President Joe Biden's new secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas (pictured), didn't waste any time in attacking the border security measures implemented by former President Donald Trump and that administration:

Mayorkas: "We are dedicated to achieving and quite frankly are working around the clock to replace the cruelty of the past administration with an orderly, humane, and safe immigration process. It is hard and it will take time. To put it succinctly, the prior administration dismantled our nation's immigration system in its entirety …. Quite frankly, the entire system was gutted." (See video below)

Ira Mehlman is a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). He admits being confused initially about Mayorkas' comments.

"When I heard his statement about dismantling the immigration system, I thought he was talking about this administration – the one that he is serving in right now: the Biden administration," Mehlman tells One News Now.

"If you look what they have done in just the first six weeks of the administration," he continues, "they have basically taken a wrecking ball to our immigration policy and our immigration enforcement and actually created a situation where we're having a surge at the border."

And Mehlman says it's "laughable" that Mayorkas answered "no" when asked if there is a crisis at the border, describing it instead as a "challenge" that the Biden administration is managing. Mehlman's response?

"He is certainly a denizen of the Washington, DC, swamp where you can use words very carefully to make things simply disappear or appear not what they are," the FAIR spokesman suggests.

"We have a crisis at the border. It is a self-induced crisis by the Biden administration. It is what it is, and the administration is going to have to deal with it," Mehlman concludes.

But the border crisis isn't being talked about, says FAIR, because the COVID-19 pandemic "overshadows the growing apprehension numbers, even as Biden is coming under fire for ordering the release of illegal aliens into the interior of the country without even testing them for COVID-19."

Unless the administration changes course – quickly – FAIR predicts the "Biden border crisis" is only going to grow worse and worse.
