    Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted before Congress on Tuesday that more than half a million immigrants illegally crossed the southern border in fiscal year 2023 despite previously claiming it has been secure during the Biden administration.

    Mayorkas testified before the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee alongside FBI Director Christopher Wray and NCTC Director Christine Abizai for the annual "Threats to the Homeland" hearing.

    When Kansas GOP Sen. Roger Marshall asked how many "gotaways" - referring to immigrants observed illegally entering the U.S. without being apprehended - did U.S. Border Patrol agents record in the last 12 months, Mayorkas said the number reached more than 600,000.

    "I'm sure you are well aware the phenomenon of 'gotaways' is something that has been a challenge for the Department of Homeland Security for decades," Mayorkas said. "In fact, it is a powerful example of a broken immigration system."

    Mayorkas has repeated at least 19 separate times in some variation that the southern border remains "secure," according to members of the Senate committee.

    But those claims consistently come under scrutiny, considering a Homeland Security GOP report recorded approximately 7.5 million illegal immigrant encounters nationwide, of which 6.2 million encounters were at the southwest border, in addition to 1.7 million known "gotaways" who evaded U.S. Border Patrol.

    According to CBP data, authorities recorded about 2.48 million encounters in FY 2023 - the highest level in U.S. history. The latest figure is up 40% from FY 2021 and 4% from FY 2022.

    Authorities reportedly flagged at least 280 of those individuals on the FBI's terrorist watchlist over the last three years based on fiscal year-end and monthly migrant data reported by the federal agency.

    "Americans feel less safe today than they did before the start of this administration, and your testimony has always solidified the view that American people, that they don't have confidence in the job that you're doing," Marshall said. "This is why I believe the defining issue in this next election is going to be exactly this: Are our families safer today than they were three years ago?"

    Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson further pressed Mayorkas on the issue of illegal immigrants released by federal agents during the hearing on Tuesday.

    "Where did these six million people go? Are you keeping track of them? To what extent do we have a handle on where these six million people are in America?" Johnson asked.

    "As you well know, when an individual is indeed released, they are released into immigration enforcement proceedings and are subject to removal if they do not have a legal basis to remain in the United States," Mayorkas said.

    "You're not answering that question," Johnson said. "Where do these people reside?"

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

  No
  Not sure

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

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.

It is far past time for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to be Impeached for Corruption, or Incompetence, or both

The larger question in this steaming pile of manure of a man will continue to remain: Just how corrupt are the Democratic Socialists that will vote to keep this corrupt, corrosive fool in office?
