New York, NY — New York State Republican Attorney General candidate Michael Henry today called on US Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over the ongoing crisis at the southern border that could impact New York.
“US DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas clearly cannot handle his ‘18 hour days,’ and has forgotten that the ‘HS’ in DHS stands for ‘homeland security.’ He must resign. By leaving the southern border open, he has created a humanitarian crisis for migrants and a potential security crisis for states, including New York,” said Michael Henry.
“With the door to the country wide open, it provides a frightening opportunity for terrorists to walk right in. It also allows drug traffikers, sex traffickers and others with criminal intent to slip through the cracks. This, on top of COVID, poses a serious threat to the security of every state including New York.”
“New Yorkers understand that this is not the fault of the migrants who have come here looking for a better life, but this administration should have never encouraged these perilous journeys by keeping the door open.”
