Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is expected to face a barrage of questions regarding the security threats at America’s southern border at another hearing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
Mayorkas is set to testify before the House Homeland Security Committee at a hearing on “Worldwide Threats to the Homeland.”
The homeland security chief recently testified before the Senate Appropriations Committee on Nov. 8 and before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee on Oct. 31.
“Secretary Mayorkas has been very good at evading answers throughout all of his testimonies,” says James Massa, the CEO of NumbersUSA, a group that advocates for lower rates of immigration, adding that he expects Mayorkas “to be evasive again.”
“He has deferred to not wanting to answer specific numbers, not wanting to answer countries of origin, not wanting to answer how any terrorist who’s already been apprehended—and there’s almost 170 of them that were on the FBI terrorist watchlist—how they handle them and what they do with them,” Massa says of Mayorkas.
Massa joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss what to expect during Wednesday’s hearing and whether real border security measures are possible under the current administration.
