Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) sent a letter urging the House Appropriations Committee to cease funding DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ salary for jeopardizing American lives and failing to fulfill his oath to enforce our border security and immigration laws.

Rep. Roy wrote: “Secretary Mayorkas is actively failing to attain and maintain control of the southern border by weakening our security apparatus and implementing policies attracting record-breaking numbers of illegal migrants and bad actors seeking to be released into the United States.”

Additionally, his actions have resulted in the death and endangerment of Americans and the migrants seeking to come here,” the letter continues, “He has allowed for damage to property and communities across the border, loss of operational control of our border to dangerous cartels imprisoning thousands of migrants sold into human trafficking, and the fueling of deadly drugs that are poisoning tens of thousands of Americans annually. Secretary Mayorkas’ dereliction of duty is a clear violation of his oath of office.”
