Joe Biden’s Homeland Security Secretary said four words about the border crisis that will come back to haunt Democrats this fall

Record-breaking numbers of illegal aliens and dangerous drugs like fentanyl are flooding across our wide open southern border on a daily basis.

But Joe Biden doesn’t care.

And now Biden’s Homeland Security Secretary said four words about the border crisis that will come back to haunt Democrats this fall.

Last week, the Biden administration quietly reported that Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 192,000 illegal aliens who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry during the month of June.

Since the beginning of the current Fiscal Year, which started on October 1, 2021, Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 1.6 million illegal aliens attempting to enter the country.

Of these 1.6 million, more than 830,000 were apprehended during the last four months.

With three months to go in the Fiscal Year, Border Patrol agents are only 25,000 shy of last year’s record-breaking 1,659,201 apprehensions.

This doesn’t include the estimated 400,000 illegal aliens who successfully crossed the border without getting apprehended by Border Patrol agents.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claims “the border is secure”

In March of 2021, Joe Biden appointed Kamala Harris as his official border czar in order to give the appearance that his administration was taking the problem seriously.

Since then, the crisis has only spiraled out of control.

But reality doesn’t seem to matter when it comes to the Biden regime.

And during a speech on Tuesday at the Aspen Security Forum, DHS Secretary Mayorkas responded to critics by claiming that “the border is secure.”

“Look, the border is secure,” he said. “We are working to make the border more secure,” Mayorkas continued, before adding “that has been a historic challenge.”

Instead of blaming Joe Biden, Mayorkas blamed Republicans in Congress who oppose amnesty for illegal aliens.

“I have said to a number of legislators who expressed to me that we need to address the challenge at the border before they pass legislation and I take issue with the math of holding the solution hostage until the problem is resolved,” he said.

“There is work to be done,” he said before adding that “safe and secure are two different words.” 

“There are smugglers that operate on the Mexican side of the border and placing one’s life in their hands is not safe,” he said.

Border Patrol agents call Mayorkas a liar

Shortly after Mayorkas claimed that “the border is secure,” a group of Border Patrol agents who spoke to Fox News Digital off the record vehemently disagreed with the DHS Chief.

“Hundreds of thousands crossing every month is not the definition of secure,” one agent said. “They are liars and anyone who believes them are fools.”

National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) President Brandon Judd also refuted Mayorkas’ claim by pointing out the number of illegal aliens who make it past Border Patrol agents and the number of dangerous drugs they bring with them into the country.

“As bad as the apprehension numbers are, and they are beyond bad, the scariest part of border security is the gotaways and the amount of drugs that are coming into the country,” Judd told Fox News Digital. “Secretary Mayorkas knows the cartels use illegal border crossers to facilitate their higher value contraband including criminal aliens and fentanyl.” 

According to a report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), enough fentanyl was seized during the month of June on the Southern border to kill 140 million people.

9,371 pounds of cocaine, 104 pounds of heroin, and 13,167 pounds of methamphetamine were also seized by authorities on the southern border.

And it’s wreaking havoc on America, with 107,622 Americans dying from drug overdoses in 2021 according to data from the CDC.

The border crisis is growing worse by the day.

Joe Biden continues to ignore it.

And Democrats are going to pay a huge price for it at the ballot box this fall.
