Hawley Accuses Homeland Security Of Pulling Agents Off Cases To Make Sandwiches For Illegal Immigrants


(Missourinet) Have Homeland Security agents been pulled away from investigating cases in order to make sandwiches for immigrants illegally crossing into the United States?

That’s the question Missouri U-S Senator Josh Hawley asked Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas during a senate hearing this week. Hawley cites an unnamed special agent as his source.

Hawley continued to ask Mayorkas if the unnamed special agent was wrong. Mayorkas ignored him and said Homeland Security uses its personnel to achieve “the maximum law enforcement objective possible,” to which Hawley replied, “so you’re not going to deny it” and “this is news!”
