Obama-era Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan gave the opening statement today before the U.S. SENATE Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs opened his remarks by saying, “I am extremely concerned about the growing risks to our nation’s public safety, national security, and rule of law, due to illegal and uncontrolled immigration.”
“We are experiencing a crisis to the magnitude never experienced in modern times. The solution to this extremely complex crisis, cannot be a partisan issue. Simply put – continued inaction through uncompromising positions will only serve to exacerbate the threat. There is an acute need for legislative action”.
He went on to explain how the “catch-and-release” policy is affecting the US including drug and increase in drug and gang-related traffic adding:
” What should sound additional alarms of concern is that most of the family members either lack proper identifying documentation or effective vetting of what they produce is impossible, so we know virtually nothing about who we’re letting in! Once in, they are typically never to be heard from again.”
According to Morgan “What is happening is counter-intuitive to the rule of law and defies the basic principles of sovereignty.”
Statistics show that only 15% are found to have valid asylum claims which debunks the uniformed outrage often used in talking points that migrants from Northern Triangle countries are fleeing from extreme violence or persecution.
“It’s not complicated – they are being pulled here for two reasons: economic equality and family reunification.” says Morgan.
Morgan concluded his remarks by saying: “I believe the best way to begin this hearing is for every member of this committee to acknowledge – we have a crisis at our southern border requiring an immediate resolution.”
