A “situation.” That’s what Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has called the historic crisis at the southern border in his lengthy public assessment of the Biden-created debacle at the border. And yes, it is a crisis.
He doesn’t want to admit that, of course, and so his long, defensive statement is full of obfuscation, falsehoods, and misplaced blame. It uses small children as political props, implying that they comprise the bulk of under-18 illegal aliens arriving without family. This is not true, as three-fourths of those arriving are between 15 and 17 years old—teenagers on the brink of adulthood.
