Mark Green Hammers DHS Secretary Mayorkas

  • Rep. Mark Green (R-NC), chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, slammed Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas during an interview over the weekend over his claims that the number of illegal border crossing have plummeted in recent days.
  • Green’s remarks on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Dana Bash come after the U.S. Border Patrol experienced the highest number of illegal border crossings in history last week at approximately 83,000.
  • “What the secretary failed to say is that this week has seen more crossings than any time, any week in our history. Yes, there was some anticipation, and so people started coming across at higher numbers, in fact, record-breaking numbers, at the first part of the week,” Green said.
