Fourteen Attorneys General Demand Homeland Secretary Mayorkas Resign
Fourteen Republican attorneys general have called for the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the ongoing border crisis.
“We, the Attorneys General of 14 States, write to demand your immediate resignation,” the group, led by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, wrote.
“Secretary Mayorkas has failed to deliver on the core function of the agency he runs: ‘to secure the nation from the many threats we face,’” Moody said.
“Through his refusal to enforce federal laws, including deporting criminals and maintaining order at the border, he has put America and our respective states on the verge of a national security crisis.”
“The only individuals who are more secure because of our DHS secretary are the drug cartels and human smugglers.
"Secretary Mayorkas should admit his failure to achieve the basic mission of this agency and resign immediately.”
Joining Moody are the attorneys general of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.
When Mayorkas was sworn into office, he swore to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic,” the attorney's general said.
“You have violated that oath every day since you took office. Americans have died because of your failure to obey the law and do your solemn duty. More Americans will unnecessarily die and suffer for as long as you remain Secretary,” they wrote.
Referring to remarks, Mayorkas gave at the U.S. Conference of Mayors last month:
“As you publicly boast about your abject refusal to enforce the laws enacted by Congress to keep us safe, our southwest border is a disaster, and our nation is on the verge of a national security crisis. Some of our States lie on the southwest border and live your catastrophic actions daily.”
