Mayorkas Held More Than 2 Dozen Calls With ACLU In 2021

  • Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas held nearly two dozen calls with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in the first months of the Biden administration, official documents show.
  • Mayorkas’ official calendar from February to June 2021 was obtained by the government watchdog group Americans for Public Trust through a Freedom of Information Act request.
  • The calendar shows 23 calls with the left-wing civil rights group, which has called for immigration detention as a “last resort,” and opposed multiple Trump-era border security and interior enforcement initiatives.
