Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas came under fire and dropped some major shade at a group of mayors for daring to question his authority on immigration. He basically told them to mind their own beeswax when it comes to the southern border crisis, all while conveniently skipping out on an impeachment hearing against him. Talk about playing hooky!
The guy finally showed up to talk to a bunch of mayors, but his speech was about as off-topic as a cat in a dog show. He rambled on about terrorism and climate change before reluctantly mentioning the border situation. It’s like showing up to a pizza party and talking about broccoli. Boring! But I guess that’s what happens when illegal immigration is skyrocketing like a SpaceX rocket.
Then, to add insult to injury, Mayorkas went on to lecture the mayors about collaboration and whine about the “broken immigration system.” News flash, Mayorkas, maybe if you actually showed up to deal with the mess at the border instead of giving speeches, we wouldn’t be in this pickle. But hey, who needs logic when you can blame a “broken system” instead, right?
But wait, the plot thickens! House Republicans are calling for Mayorkas to pack his bags and hit the road, citing his habit of ignoring court orders, dancing around laws, and straight-up fibbing to the American people. I mean, if your boss asked you to do something and you just skipped town instead, you can bet you’d be updating your resume faster than you can say “impeachment.”
And let’s not forget the big-city mayors who are at odds with the Biden administration over the whole immigration fiasco. They’re not exactly singing kumbaya with old Alejy, with some even demanding more federal cash or looking for ways to let immigrants snag work permits like they’re going out of style. It’s like a game of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” but instead of phone-a-friend, it’s call-the-president for backup.
Now, the Democrats are in full defense mode, claiming that the GOP is playing dirty politics and using words like “baseless impeachment stunt.” Because nothing says “We’re in the right” like a snazzy set of buzzwords, right? It’s like trying to put lipstick on a pig and calling it a supermodel. Sorry, folks, but the lipstick isn’t fooling anyone.
And just when you thought this soap opera couldn’t get any juicier, Mayorkas has been a no-show at not just one, but two impeachment hearings. Nothing says “I’m innocent” like skipping out on the big showdown. But don’t worry, he still has time to submit a written testimony, like a student asking for an extension on their homework. Classic!
So, here we are. Mayorkas is dodging hearings, giving lackluster speeches, and acting like he’s the king of the castle when it comes to immigration. But hey, at least he’s winning the “Most Absent Cabinet Official” award. Maybe he should add that to his resume.
