Our approach to managing the borders securely and humanely even within our fundamentally broken immigration system is working. Unlawful entries between ports of entry along the southwest border have consistently decreased by more than half compared to the peak before the end of Title 42.”

Thus proclaimed Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on July 26.

How did Mayorkas get unlawful entries to decrease by “more than half”?

Simply by rerouting the flow, by figuring out “legal” ways to funnel many migrants through ports of entry, so they aren’t counted as illegal alien “encounters.”

Are the borders, as Mayorkas says, being managed “securely and humanely”?

Millions of unvetted migrants have crossed our border and have been released into the country.

But that’s not a failure – it’s administration policy.

So the mission is being accomplished.
