Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas traveled to Eagle Pass, Texas, to commend federal law enforcement’s handling of a surge in illegal immigration.

Despite facing impeachment proceedings, he praised the dedication and courage of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection workforce.

“The main reason I came to Eagle Pass today was to meet with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection workforce,” Mayorkas said. (Trending: First Moon Mission In 50 Years Blasts Off)

“These public servants are heroes. … They are incredibly talented, dedicated, courageous, and selfless.”

“They rescued migrants in distress, and they overcame unfortunate obstacles along the way,” Mayorkas said.

“They are to be recognized and commended, and that is why I am here today.”

Mayorkas attributed the recent immigration surge to a funding lapse for Mexico’s immigration agency and the holiday season.

His visit follows a congressional delegation’s trip to the border, and a House committee will soon decide his fate.

Despite potential impeachment, Mayorkas is unlikely to be forced out by Congress.
