- Border security experts, including former acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, have accused the Biden administration of neglecting U.S. immigration law.
- Wolf, among others, testified at a House subcommittee hearing, suggesting that the administration has not been faithfully executing immigration and border security laws.
- During the hearing, DHS’s handling of America’s borders was called into question, with emphasis on Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ alleged violations of federal immigration and border security laws.
Critics, including border security experts, are accusing the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Biden administration of failing to adhere to U.S. immigration law. These allegations were voiced by Chad Wolf, the former acting Homeland Security Secretary, during a House subcommittee hearing this week. He asserts that the administration has not been diligently implementing the immigration and border security laws, a requirement stipulated by the U.S. Constitution.
Wolf’s testimony was notably candid. He stated that the current administration is the first, irrespective of political affiliation, to knowingly take actions that weaken security along the southern border. He went further to suggest that new leadership is essential at the DHS to rectify this situation.
The House Judiciary immigration subcommittee also probed into the manner in which the DHS, under Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, is managing America’s borders. Steven Bradbury, a distinguished fellow at The Heritage Foundation, was questioned by Rep. Andy Biggs regarding multiple alleged instances of Mayorkas violating federal laws governing immigration and border security.
Bradbury affirmed each question on these alleged violations. These include the mass release of aliens into the U.S. and the failure to vet illegal aliens being paroled into the country. Such actions, if proven, could lead to significant legal and political consequences for the current administration.
America, a nation of laws, is witnessing an alarming paradox. While law-abiding citizens are held to stringent standards, it appears our own Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is allegedly allowed to dance around the laws that govern immigration and border security.
Chad Wolf’s recent testimony at a House subcommittee hearing, brings these concerns to the forefront. The accusations that our own DHS, under Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, has been violating immigration law should not be brushed under the carpet. This isn’t just about politics; it’s about the essence of our country.
The U.S. Constitution demands the administration to faithfully execute immigration and border security laws. If these allegations are correct, it’s clear that this mandate is being disregarded. But why? Is it because the laws are inconvenient for the current political narrative?
Regardless of one’s political stance, it’s crucial to understand that laws aren’t malleable to fit current needs. They exist to maintain order, ensure fairness, and uphold the very principles that make America the land of the free.
The allegations of law violations by DHS warrant thorough investigation. It’s not enough to call for new leadership; we need to hold those in power accountable. That’s the American way. When those who are meant to uphold the law become its violators, we must question not just their authority, but also their commitment to the principles of this great nation.
After all, if our government doesn’t respect our laws, why should the citizens?
