6 Takeaways as House Republicans Accuse Homeland Security Chief of ‘Intentional’ Border Crisis:
House Republicans pressed Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for answers Thursday as every sign appeared to point to a rising surge of illegal immigrants trying to cross the southern border.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, agents last month logged over 221,000 “encounters” with illegal aliens along the border, a 33% jump from February.
In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Mayorkas argued that the situation at the border is under “operational control,” as the law requires.
Republicans on the committee repeatedly rejected this claim, some saying President Joe Biden’s appointee should be impeached and removed for intentionally neglecting his duty under the law. They pointed to the huge increase in illegal immigrants trying to cross into America and what they said is a lack of policy to address the real issues driving the crisis.
Here are six highlights from the hearing.

Chip Roy explodes at DHS secretary over border crisis: 'You're ignoring the actual truth':
Texas Congressman Chip Roy unloaded on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Thursday, accusing the secretary of failing his duties to uphold the law and maintain "operational control" of the southern border.
Roy, a border state Republican, is part of a group of lawmakers planning to impeach Mayorkas should the GOP regain the House majority after the midterm elections. When the secretary testified before the House Homeland Security Committee Thursday, Roy pressed him to state, under oath, whether the U.S. has "operational control" of the southern border in accordance with federal law.
"Yes, we do," Mayorkas answered.
But an incredulous Roy read the statutory definition of "operational control," which according to the Secure Fence Act of 2006 means, "the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband."
He also read from federal law that says any alien making an asylum claim with a "credible fear of persecution ... shall be detained for further consideration of the application for asylum." --->READ MORE HERE

Sebastian Gorka: Members of Biden Administration Should Be Prosecuted for Aiding Cartels, Human Traffickers:
Dr. Sebastian Gorka told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow in a Thursday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily that people like U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas should be prosecuted for assisting cartels and human traffickers through their failed border policies.
“Two million illegal aliens are being released into the nation,” Gorka told Marlow on Thursday.
“What is occurring on the southern border with women, with children — it’s slavery,” he continued. “It is the abuse of human beings by other human beings, they’re being sold, they’re being trafficked, and it is being perpetrated; assisted by this administration.”
Gorka added that he would like to see people like Mayorkas be prosecuted.
“I’m not interested in subpoenas, I’m not interested in the House investigating these guys after we win in the midterms,” Gorka said. “I want these people to be prosecuted, I want them to be charged. They are aiding and abetting criminal cartels.” --->LISTEN and READ MORE HERE
