“This administration is absolutely—has dismantled everything, and everything that they’re doing is against the nation’s best interest, and I believe it’s for perceived political gain,” Morgan told Just the News.
Morgan then elaborated on unofficial illegal immigration numbers.
“I think within the last 10-11 days, they actually had a single-day encounter of over 6,000. Have you seen that officially? Has anyone in [the Department of Homeland Security] reported that? No. Six thousand! They’re averaging, now, anywhere between probably about 4,500 to 5,000 a day.”
“But here’s the truth, and here’s the stat they’re not presenting officially: 75 percent of the so-called unaccompanied minors are older teenagers—15, 16, 17 years of age,” Morgan told the outlet.
“They’re not being ripped from their parents. They’re making a tough decision on their own to leave simply because they want a better job in the United States.”
Morgan further noted that over 20,000 people have been released since January by mandate of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and that three-quarters of those being labeled as unaccompanied miners are older teenagers.
Morgan then said that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wasn’t honest regarding the border’s security.
“So, and this is one of the most disgusting lies—lie—that came out of the mouth of the DHS Secretary when he said, ‘The southwest border is secure.’ … And the 63,000 men and women of CBP on the frontlines of our nation, on the southwest border, know that’s a lie,” Morgan said.
On Tuesday, 14 Republican congressmembers demanded an explanation over “troubling reports” that illegal immigrants are being released into the United States with no court dates.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) said in a letter to Mayorkas that the senators are “seeking answers to recent troubling reports that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is releasing aliens who entered the country illegally without the aliens being given Notices to Appear (NTA.)”
“Despite your repeated claims that ‘the border is secure,’ these reports raise serious questions about DHS’s commitment to faithfully enforcing the law,” reads the letter, which was obtained by Fox News.
The outlet reported that during the weekend, migrants were being processed and released without NTA in the Rio Grande Valley sector.
