Biden DHS secretary lashes out over ‘disrespectful’ question on crimes by migrants

Biden Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was recently pressed by U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) on how he plans to address the threat posed by undocumented migrant criminals like the man who kidnapped then-19-year-old Amber Scott a full 15 years ago.

According to Breitbart, rather than answering Cammack’s question, however, Mayorkas snapped at the Florida Republican, calling her question “extraordinarily disrespectful.”

“Resounding effects”

Speaking Wednesday, Cammack told the story of Scott, a student from Colorado who was taken at knifepoint in 2006 by then-25-year-old Pedro Martinez, an undocumented migrant who previously been deported three times.

“I’m from a small town out west, and the month before I was supposed to graduate high school, which was 2006, one of my classmates was kidnapped by an illegal [immigrant] who had been deported multiple times,” the congresswoman said, according to Breitbart.

“And I think when you have policies that incentivize folks to come over illegally, and we don’t have the proper mechanisms in place to protect our borders…that kind of impact has resounding effects,” Cammack added.

“So my question to you, her name was Amber Scott — the young lady who was kidnapped by this illegal criminal — how many more Ambers have to be kidnapped across America before you will take action?” she pressed the secretary.

In response, Mayorkas quickly made clear that he didn’t appreciate the line of inquiry. “Congresswoman, I find that question to be extraordinarily disrespectful,” he said, as Breitbart reported.

“Very disrespected”

The DHS secretary reportedly said the question was “disrespectful not only to me, but disrespectful to the men and women of Homeland Security and to all the frontline personnel throughout this country who dedicate themselves to the safety and security of the American people.”

But Cammack didn’t back down, replying: “I’m sorry that you feel that way… I’m sure the American people feel very disrespected about the border situation we’re facing right now.”

As Breitbart noted in another report, just last month, a 23-year-old undocumented alien with ties to MS-13 was charged in New York state on allegations that he participated in a 2016 murder. The man was already serving a nine-year prison sentence for a separate attempted murder.

Meanwhile, America’s southern border is currently facing a surge of migrants, with Fox News reporting Wednesday that more than 500 unaccompanied minors are crossing into the U.S. daily, on average.

Fox also reported this week that some 13,000 migrant children are currently being held in federal custody, a situation Mayorkas, for his part, continues to refuse to call a crisis.

  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to
    be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
    to let you know. The design look great though! Hope
    you get the problem resolved soon. Many thanks


    1. Its simple suck it up butter cup these are potential democrat voters and therefore untouchable. Lock sand load if you can get one and if you have one good luck on keeping it. Your crazy demented old Uncle JOE is here to see to it his illegals get to vote in 2022 and 2024 . and on and on and on.

    2. There going to make tax payers pay for this and raise our taxes to do it. They take care of everyone but us..

  4. This is all to despite President Trump and we the people are paying for it sadly some with there lives Immigration we need but it needs to be done legally and wisely and a limited amount we need to take care of ours first Some seniors still are eating very little and mostly dog food to survive There are homeless children living from garbage cans There are veteran’s living under bridges Why cant the democrats help them instead of putting the aliens ahead of them President Trump was Wake up America Vote the current out

    1. I agree mostly with what you wrote Susan, but not the vote them out idea. That is 2 and 4 years away and we need justice now. The voter fraud must be corrected now. The planning and execusation of defrauding the citizens of this country was so vast and had so many participants that it must not be allowed to stand. If the traitors, seditionists, co-conspiritors and operatives need to be prosecuted. History will call this the greatest crime ever prosecuted against the USA, much bigger than Pearl Harbour or 911. There is no statute of limitations on voter fraud or treason and we need to stop acting as if there was!!

      1. Donald and Susanne you have both written excellent commentary on what has happened to our Country and our Constitutional Rights. This is just the beginning of our downfall under this current illegal administration. President Trump was denied his legal votes due to the Democratic fraudulent election in November 2020. We need to do something now to protect our Country but what can we do when the corrupt Congress calls the shots on whatever they want to do? What gives them the right to open our borders when we can’t even take care of our own citizens?

    2. You hit the nail on the head. I thought the law was an Immigrant was supposed to be either sponsored or have some sort of Trade for his or her supporting themselves and be INOCULATED before released. I’M NOT HEARING ANYTHING ON THE NEWS ABOUT THAT. They have diseases in other countries that can carry over into America. The most crimes ( I’d say 90% to 97% ) made here in Northern NV’ are made by Illegal. Why are we supporting them in prison instead of sending them back across the boarder unless committing a major crime. AND LOCKING DOWN OUR BOADERS. If we could help solve other counties problems we would, BUT THERE ARE TOO MANY MONEY HUNGRY CROCKED POLITICIANS INVOLVED.

  5. That is why he needs to be fired. Just like Biden, they do not know what they are doing, before now and after the crisis. The rest of the so called leaders, need to stop running their mouths and actually wake-up and lead. Disrespectful is when you are paid to help, but have no clue. Where is the expertise? Other more qualified people would do better. Seems the Biden administration hires people with no real experience. All they have to do is go to the border and see the bad decisions. Stop changing policies that already work.

  6. Good for Congresswoman Cammack. Mayorkas is another mental midget dumocrap who couldn’t care less about real Americans. Just like that idiot Biden he cares more about illegals than he does us real Americans. All the illegals – “so-called unaccompanied minors” and all the rest should be put on planes and sent back to wherever they came from. Heard last night that DHS is putting them on planes and sending them to our northern border for the agents there to process them. What BS. Put that idiot Mayorkas on the plane with them and send them all back south. When they turn up back in their own town, people there would see that they should not come to the US. The wall should be finished – there was money appropriated for it. Heard Bumbling Biden broke the law when he stopped the wall.

  7. This was so perfectly presented and I really do not like reading anyway. However if I was so curious enough to manage to get by all of these stupid POPUPS, just to finish the article, KUDOS to you. Thankd

  8. Biden is the threat to America and Americans,his policies and the people like him are hurting America.America under Biden is a laughing stock,under Biden were looking out credibility as a world leader.Biden does not have the capability to lead.Everyone look at him and wake up

    1. Biden,50years he has led from the rear, now we know that kind of leadership is going to fail. We somehow get rid of the whole Democratic party leaders and get Donald J Trump back in the WH.

  9. Good for Kat. The anti-American liberal trash need their feet held to the fire for their incompetent handling of the criminal invaders event to the point of being charged as accessories.

  10. Folks this is what our country becomes with the Dumocrats in charge and a demented man is president that doesn’t know his own name and address most of the time and is given so much power. It’s scary as hell to be an American these days!! What about all the deaths from Covid and filling our country up with more than the number that have died with it all over again. I think they are all insane and anyone who voted for Grandpa should really be ashamed and blamed with all the mess it’s causing. Biden has proven only that he can sign away things, doesn’t give a damn about the country he is in charge of and has no answers or can’t remember what the question was. Too buysychanging all Trumps marvelous accomplishments in America and loves to sign things and doesn’t know what he’s done or is signing. His VP is the same way!!! Radical, negative and blaming all with a smile!!!God help us!!!

  11. Just as we thought. Some key people in the Biden Administration cannot handle off-narrative, tough questions. Too bad, so sad. Look at 4 years of Trump transparency and MSM hostile treatment. Get a life.

  12. Biden can’t climb a set of steps to get on a plane he’s an idiot no brain communist dictator of the worst kind stole the election by using covid as a tool doesn’t care about Americans only wants to control people like his beloved China treason throw the bum out of our country

  13. Agree with all posts! All of grandpa grope’s cabinet members are old Obama cabinet people! Now—- who do you think is REALLY running this so called administration? Yep Obutthead himself, along with Piglosi and rice! Biden is just the stooge, and the fall guy! Atrocious! Impeach the all!!!

  14. Where is AOC? Where is Omar?Where is the so called Squad? Yeah that’s what I thought..nowhere to be found…What a frighten joke

  15. Anyone surprised? This is your DemocRAT government! It’s all about votes to stay in power and line their pockets! They are lying, corrupt, unethical, immoral, hypocrites! PEOPLE – wake up and stop voting for these lowlifes!

  16. I’ve been exploring for a bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of house .

    Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this website.
    Reading this information So i am satisfied to express that I have an incredibly good
