DHS Chief Mayorkas Admits Migrants Are 'Gaming the System' to Enter U.S.

President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has admitted that migrants often “try to game” the asylum system at the southern border so that they can be released into the United States.

Mayorkas’s remarks came during a CBS News interview, which eventually flew in the face of the Biden administration’s attempts to downplay the national security, economic, and social implications of illegal immigration to the U.S.

It’s also worth noting that Mayorkas boasted about rescinding all of Trump’s policies in 2021

Watch

CBS News reports:

In an interview with CBS News, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said some migrants coming to the U.S.-Mexico border are trying to “game” the U.S. asylum system, echoing a statement often made by Republicans but rarely expressed by Biden administration officials. [Emphasis added]

“The reality is that some people do indeed try to game the system,” Mayorkas told CBS News in El Paso last Thursday.

“That does not speak to everyone whom we encounter, but there is an element of it, and we deal with it accordingly.” [Emphasis added]

The outlet added:

Mayorkas made the comment in response to a question about concerns some Americans have expressed about the situation at the southern border, where U.S. officials have reported record levels of migrant apprehensions over the past three years.

Immigration has become one of President Biden’s worst-polling issues, as well as a top concern for voters heading into November’s presidential election. [Emphasis added]

Biden’s DHS continues to release tens of thousands of migrants into the country every few weeks, specifically through a parole pipeline.

According to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report from January, the DHS has welcomed some 6.2 million migrants to the U.S. through its expansive Catch and Release network in the last three years.

The DHS will reportedly begin issuing photo identification cards to migrants released into the U.S. interior.

Migrant encounters on Biden’s watch will top 10 million before the end of Fiscal Year 2024.
