Mayorkas ‘not aware’ cartels use illegal immigrants to distract border agents:
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday told Congress he’s unaware that cartels use illegal immigrants to flood the border and sneak over dangerous contraband.
That admission surprised Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican who pointed out that Attorney General Merrick Garland acknowledged the strategy in his own testimony to Congress earlier this month.
And some of Mr. Mayorkas’ top Border Patrol agents testified to Congress about the strategy last month.
“You’ve simply lost all credibility, Mr. Secretary,” Mr. Cornyn said.
Mr. Mayorkas was testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where Republicans pummeled him over the chaos at the southern border.
They particularly bristled when Mr. Mayorkas said the “scourge of fentanyl” is not tied to the record numbers of illegal immigrants being caught.
Mr. Cornyn challenged Mr. Mayorkas over the linkage, saying the cartels “flood the border” with people to overwhelm agents.
“I am not aware of that as a strategy,” Mr. Mayorkas said. --->READ MORE HERE

Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans urge DHS Chief Mayorkas to resign in acrimonious hearing:
Calls to resign rained down on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday as he insisted that the border was secure while struggling to answer questions about illegal immigration and the flow of deadly fentanyl.
Animosity ran high as Mr. Mayorkas testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where some of Washington’s most vocal conservatives peppered him with questions about what has gone wrong over the past two years.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, said fentanyl from Mexico now kills twice as many people each month as died in the attack on Pearl Harbor or the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He said Mr. Mayorkas has fueled the deaths.
“Look what’s happened. And you know how it happened? You took all the policies that were working, and you changed them, and it’s blown up in our face,” he said.
Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, demanded that the secretary take responsibility for the soaring number of migrants who have died or been raped while taking advantage of the more relaxed Biden policies to try to rush the border.
“Your behavior is disgraceful, and the deaths, the children assaulted, the children raped are at your feet,” Mr. Cruz thundered. “And if you had integrity, you’d resign.” --->READ MORE HERE
