According to conservative Rep. Mark Green, the crisis currently unfolding at the southern border is due to the Biden administration tossing out “89 effective policies” from two prior presidential administrations and because Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas sucks as a leader and is totally incompetent.
That last bit was my paraphrase of Green’s comments. Just thought I’d take what he said and explain it in more colorful terms. Because this crap is just getting old. How long do we have to put up with the garbage happening to southern border states and the inaction of the current president and his moronic goons?
“The money in the budget didn’t suddenly decrease when the new president came on board,” the Tennessee Republican, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, said during an interview with Newsmax‘s “Greg Kelly Reports” on Tuesday. “What happened was 89 effective policies went away, policies from two different administrations.”
He then went on to add that under 12 years of combined leadership between former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, the number of illegal immigrants that came across the border falls short of that which has arisen under the leadership of President Joe Biden, which includes a staggering 4.7 million encounters, along with 1.3 million individuals who “got away.”

Green added that the committee members want to get to the bottom of the administration’s actions, and acknowledged that there is possibly a “concerted effort” underway to open the border, including State Department actions that kept Border Patrol officials from having agreements to send immigrants back to their home countries.
“We know Mayorkas lied to Congress,” said Green. “We know he’s failed as a law enforcement officer, the head of DHS, to enforce laws on the books. We know he’s facilitating cartel crime. We know there’s a massive human cost and dollar costs of this, and we’re going to point it back to Mayorkas, and then we’ll hand that packet off to [Rep.] Jim Jordan, and hopefully, he impeaches this guy.”
His comments came ahead of Wednesday’s hearing in McAllen, Texas, where Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee will meet, but Democrats on the committee have “decided to be a wall on this.”
“[This] is a relevant term for me as a prior military guy,” said Green. “They’re just not showing up to their place of duty.”
Green then said that it’s critical to ensure that Americans are educated concerning the dangers that the policies of the Biden administration are causing along the border.
“I think there are a lot of people who don’t realize that every American is at risk with an open border, and we’ve been communicating that,” he remarked. “We had a hearing last week where a fentanyl mom talked about losing two children to fentanyl. They took something they thought was recreational, and it had fentanyl. They all died. Everybody in the room that night died. Our president thought it was funny, though.”
