Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has failed to deport the 1.2 MILLION illegal immigrants in America who have been given their final orders of deportation.
Representative Matt Gaetz, a Republican from Florida, knows exactly why Mayorkas hasn’t deported them yet.
Mayorkas doesn’t actually want to remove them.
“1.2 million people are un-detained, free, roaming about the country,” Gaetz began. “They’ve gone before a judge. A judge has issued a final order of removal. How many ICE agents do you need to deport them?” Gaetz asked.
Mayorkas did not answer the question, so Gaetz tried again:
“How much money do you need to deport all of them? How much money? How many agents to deport the 1.2 million who a judge has said have no right to be here?”
Again, Mayorkas deflected.
That told Gaetz all he needed to know:
“These are the people who have had their due process, ok? And here’s the point. You have no plan to remove them. You don’t know how many ICE agents it would take and you don’t know how much money it would take because you actually don’t want to remove them.”
