Department of Homeland Security Chief Alejandro Mayorkas told left-wing lawyers that foreign migrants will be “foremost in our efforts.”
Mayorkas acting more like an advocate stating his “identity” is a champion for migrants, at one point he referred to himself as a guardian angel:
The element of dignity [and] the rule of law. Those are two foundational guideposts as I seek to lead an agency, as we, as servants of the law, seek to bring justice in whatever we do. And here in the Department of Homeland Security, I think that must guide everything that we do.
I want to read to you, as my final words, a note that we received at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, to speak of the impact on an individual to communicate what we can do to ensure that throughout our actions, we recognize and respect the dignity of every individual, and what it means to administer the rule of law in the best traditions of our country, and in adherence to the principles of our Constitution.
“Dear Mrs. Officer, I want to inform you that I received a letter of approval in regards for my application in this great humanitarian country. Madam, I want to thank you, and thank this great nation, for giving me a chance to find a refuge for my life … May God bless you for being my guardian angel. And may God bless America for saving me.”
Mayorkas has been the facilitator of Biden’s border crisis that has allowed a record number of illegal migrants into the country.
But Mayorkas doesn’t feel that he is an America and rather identifies himself as a migrant. During his speech Mayorkas made the following statement after telling of his story visiting a migrant camp in Kenya:
And I returned to the States asking a lot of fundamental questions, certainly about whether we could define ourselves as a civilized world or not, but also asking questions about myself … and the question of identity became much more profoundly important to me as an individual, as a son, as a brother, and as a father, and husband. But it also became very important to me, as a leader of an organization. And the issue of identity became the central question when we were wrestling with policy issues.
When we consider a particular policy question before us, doesn’t the answer help define our identity? Who we are, and more importantly, who we want to be?
Mayorkas is ignoring the fact that when he was sworn into office he said he would support and defend the Constitution and would “bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
