After Trump blew up even more so our already blown up immigration policy and ripped children from their parents’ arms, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Tuesday the United States is expected to reach the highest number of people apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border in two decades.
“We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years. We are expelling most single adults and families. We are not expelling unaccompanied children,” Mayorkas said in a statement addressing what he described as a “difficult” situation at the border.
“Our goal is a safe, legal and orderly immigration system that is based on our bedrock priorities: to keep our borders secure, address the plight of children as the law requires, and enable families to be together,” he said.
Mayorkas explained that the majority of people apprehended at the southwest border are single adults, and they are “currently being expelled under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s authority to manage the public health crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
***At News Views, we do not call undocumented immigrants, ‘illegal aliens’ nor do we refer to them as ‘invaders,’ like the bigoted and ignorant MAGAt sect does. We also do not call for shooting undocumented immigrants and asking questions later, like the bigoted and ignorant MAGAt sect does. Please choose your words wisely when commenting, thanks.
