Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has called on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorcas to resign as President Joe Biden’s administration set a new record for illegal immigration to the United States.

A recent analysis found that about 5 million border crossings and illegal aliens have arrived at the border since Biden took office.
Hawley, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, released a letter On Wednesday, that called for Mayorkas’ resignation amid record-breaking news about illegal immigration:
I am appalled by the record levels of illegal immigration into our country. According to the department’s statistics, This fiscal year, Customs and Border Protection agents have encountered more than 2 million illegal immigrants crossing our southern border.That’s significantly higher than last year’s record 1.7 million encounters, and the year isn’t over yet. This number represents a more than fourfold increase in illegal immigration compared to fiscal 2020. These are only official statistics and fail to catch many escapees evading detection. After two years of employment, you have demonstrated that you do not intend to enforce our immigration laws. [Emphasis added]
There are consequences for you to completely abdicate your responsibility to defend the border. This year alone, a record 78 people have been placed on our nation’s terror watch list. These are just what we know. [Emphasis added]
Sadly, I think you know. This is a predictable result of your open border policy. Your willful disregard for our country’s immigration laws makes you unfit for continued employment.you should quit. [Emphasis added]

Agents do not always assign A numbers as they attempt to expedite processing and divert migrants from overcapacity Border Patrol facilities,” the DHS IG report states:
Additionally, the Border Patrol does not always maintain alien files on immigrants. border patrol and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Unable to provide 80 of the 384 immigration files requested because they were lost, disposed of, or in transit. The Border Patrol processed these documents because they did not have A numbers and were unaware of record retention requirements. [Emphasis added]
