Former Vice President Joe Biden will nominate Alejandro Mayorkas to run the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), despite his role in creating huge Latin American migration and his involvement in several visas-for-sale scandals.
Mayorkas “is a gift for Republicans who want to make an issue of Biden’s immigration policies,” said Jessica Vaughn, at the Center for Immigration Studies. She continued:
He is the exact kind of nominee that people didn’t want to see — someone in favor of corporate interests on immigration, of looking the other way on fraud, of rubber-stamping every [migration] application. This should be an easy softball for them to hit out of the park. This is something that’s going to be helpful to them in the Georgia Senate races — I mean, [Sen. David] Perdue [R‑GA] and [Sen. Kelly] Loeffler [R‑GA] should be commenting on this.
All of the stars align here — cronyism, corruption, swampiness, and the immigration issue.
