WASHINGTON, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Department of Homeland Security Secretary (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas is derelict in his duty to secure our borders and protect the American public. Under his leadership, illegal immigration has reached levels not seen in two decades and criminal illegal aliens have become virtually exempted from arrest and deportation. Immigration officials remain overwhelmed and are no longer able to fulfill their missions and effectively enforce immigration and border laws. This situation presents a clear and present danger to national security, public health, and the general welfare of the American public.
As Secretary Mayorkas and his administration continue to jeopardize public safety and undermine the rule of law, members of Congress and law enforcement officials will join families who have lost loved ones at the hands of criminal aliens for a candlelight vigil on Tuesday, September 28.
The message of the vigil: Mayorkas Must Go.
"Our nation's long history of failing to enforce immigration laws harms all Americans. But for some families, the consequences have been tragic," said Shari Rendall, FAIR's director of state and local engagement. "While the Biden administration has created a full-blown border crisis, and Congress treats illegal aliens as victims who should be rewarded with amnesty, the September 28 vigil will remind those in power who our laws are meant to protect and highlight the human costs to American lives when those laws are ignored."
Among the demands of participants:
Former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan, former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Tom Homan, Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), Rep. Andy Biggs (TX), Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX), Rep. Lauren Boebert (CO), sheriffs, Angel members, and more.
Tuesday, September 28 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm ET
In front of the Ronald Reagan Building
14th Street, NW. Between Constitution and Pennsylvania Avenues, Washington, D.C. 20004
