On Tuesday in a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) questioned Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, slamming the Biden Administration after new reports revealing a sharp rise in trafficking and abuse of migrant children under his leadership.
“You were crowing about the fact that you treated children so well, and yet we find tens of thousands of children who are forced to work as slaves because of your policies, and you turn around and blame a prior administration,” said Senator Hawley.
Senator Hawley highlighted Secretary Mayorkas’ continued refusal to answer for the Biden Administration’s failed policies at the southern border, and said that if Mayorkas does not resign, he should be removed from office.
