The Mayorkas statement is political propaganda. It is meant to rehabilitate deteriorating public confidence in the Biden administration’s mishandling of the border crisis. Certainly many in the media and on Capitol Hill will parrot its falsehoods. But the fact remains that what is happening on the southern border is a crisis and not a “situation.” It is Biden-made and created for political purposes. Only action will solve it, which means preventing illegal immigration, not encouraging, and processing it even faster.
