Hawley blasts Mayorkas over Americans killed by illegal immigrants

Missouri U.S. Senator Josh Hawley questioned Department of Homeland Security DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, condemning him for repeatedly lying to Congress and willfully implementing President Biden’s open-border policies that have caused growing numbers of Americans to die at the hands of illegal immigrants.

“You have lied repeatedly to Congress and to the American people about [Ibarra’s criminal history]. . . . I just want to know, why did you change your story so often?”asked Senator Hawley. . . . “Well, hopefully [Ibarra] will get more of a trial than you got. Otherwise, they’ll be no justice for anyone at all.”

Senator Hawley specifically chronicled the crimes of illegal immigrants Jose Ibarra, who allegedly murdered 22-year-old Laken Riley of Georgia, and Endrina Bracho, who allegedly killed 12-year-old Travis Wolfe of Missouri.

“This is your policy in action, Mr. Secretary: A criminal is permitted into this country on grounds . . . flatly contradictory to the statute. [Ibarra] commits a crime against a child, and then he gets a work permit,” said Senator Hawley.

Senator Hawley closed by again urging Secretary Mayorkas to resign.

“Mr. Secretary, I know that you think your policies are a success. . . . Maybe they’re working for your political objectives . . . but they’re not working for Laken Riley or Travis Wolfe or the people of my state. . . . What you have done is a travesty, and, sir, it is long past time for you to go,” concluded Senator Hawley.
