Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly admitted that over 85% of migrants caught crossing the border illegally are being released into the United States.

This revelation has raised concerns about the influx of illegal immigrants overwhelming border cities and areas across the nation.

Mayorkas is facing an impeachment effort by Congressional Republicans, who claim he is not enforcing federal immigration law and has lied about the border situation to Congress and the American people. (Trending: Anthony Fauci Questioned About Evidence Behind COVID Restrictions)

Bill Melugin reported, “Per three Border Patrol sources who were in the room, while meeting privately with agents in Eagle Pass, TX today, DHS Sec. Mayorkas admitted that the current release rate for migrants caught crossing the border illegally is ‘above 85%,’”

“I’m awaiting comment from DHS,” he continued.

The National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Union responded, “Your sources are correct.”

“During this meeting, Brandon Judd told Mayorkas that Americans have the right to know the facts about what’s going on at the border. It was at that point Mayorkas admitted that ‘over 85%’ of the people illegally crossing our border are being released,” the organization continued.

Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, said, “I believe Secretary Mayorkas is an abject failure, but it’s not because of incompetence. I believe he has done this intentionally.”

“These are intentional policy decisions that he’s made – I think there must be accountability for that,” he continued.

“Secretary Mayorkas is not a good-faith negotiator,” added the Speaker.

“He’s unwilling to enforce existing federal law, why would we believe that he would do any new provision. He’s lied to Congress repeatedly, he’s lied to me personally,” charged the lawmaker.
