Mayorkas Slammed During Interview Over His Border Failures: ‘Very Hard To Call That A Success’

 Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas struggled during an interview over the weekend when pressed about the Biden administration’s repeated failures to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mayorkas was pressed hard over his failures during a Sunday interview with Martha Raddatz on ABC News’ “This Week” while talking about Biden’s border crisis.

Raddatz asked him about Biden’s executive order from last week that critics and experts have widely panned as “weak“, which also comes after Biden previously claimed that he couldn’t use executive orders to fix the problem.

“This has been in place for five days now. What has the impact been?” Raddatz asked. “How many migrants have been turned away between those ports of entry?”

Mayorkas refused to answer the question and said that they were only at a “very early stage” in implementing the executive order.

Raddatz later showed Mayorkas a clip from an interview that she did with him in March 2021 where Mayorkas said at the time: “We have seen large numbers of migration in the past. We know how to address it. We have a plan. We are executing on our plan and we will succeed. This is what we do. But one thing is also clear, that it takes time. It’s tough, but we can do it. This is what we do, and we will accomplish our mission.”

Raddatz then noted that many millions of illegal aliens have flooded into the U.S. under Biden and that little has changed over the last three years.

“It would be very hard to call that a success,” she said.
