Joe Manchin Says Mayorkas Is ‘Very Competent,’ Defends DHS Boss From Republican Scrutiny | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Moderate Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) defended embattled Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas from Republicans on Sunday.

    Appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," Manchin made excuses for Mayorkas, claiming that the Republicans in Congress need to "unleash him" and let him do his job while pushing for "immigration reform," including a pathway to citizenship for immigrants.

    "[I]t's an unfair charge against [Alejandro] Mayorkas because I think the gentleman is very competent, he can do a good job," said Manchin. "They just need to unleash him, let him do his job. That's what I have said before and I'll say it again now. With that, we have got to do basically immigration reform. My state of West Virginia needs more workers. We need people that want to come here for the right reason, to provide for their family a better quality of life."

    "[W]e have so many people that want to come to our country, there has to be a legal pathway forward," Manchin added. "That's all we've been talking about. The 2013 piece of legislation that we worked on and passed in a bipartisan way in the Senate, never got a vote in the House. Use that as the building block. That was a piece of legislation that was responsible and reasonable and it basically all centered around border security, but it gave a legal pathway forward to come into this country, work your way to legal citizenship. That's what we need."

    Manchin did say, however, that Title 42 immigration restrictions should remain in place until an adequate immigration bill is passed.

    "[W]e have a crisis at the border, everyone can see that. I think everyone realizes that something has to be done. [Title] 42 needs to be extended until we can get really, truly immigration reform... [W]e need an extension until we can get a viable answer for this. Right now, this is unattainable. This is wrong. You can't do this to the southern border."

    Border Patrol agents recently gave Mayorkas the cold shoulder when he visited El Paso. The agents specifically called out the DHS Secretary for claiming that the border is secure, despite the agency's continued struggles.

    "They asked him why he's saying that the border is secure when we have no agents in the field," one agent told the Washington Examiner on Wednesday. "He had the nerve to respond that he never said the border was secure."

    House Republicans have repeatedly said they would investigate and possibly impeach Mayorkas for his mishandling of the situation.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
