Senator Marshall Votes Against Biden DHS Pick

(Washington, D.C., February 2, 2021) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D., issued the following statement after voting against the nomination of Alejandro Mayorkas to be the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary.

“Alejandro Mayorkas is in favor of open borders, unlimited amnesty for illegal immigrants, is a China appeaser, and on top of all that his previous time in government is riddled with a number of ethically questionable moments,” said Senator Marshall. “Advocating for millions of illegal immigrants to enter this country illegally is unacceptable – especially at a time when our nation is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.”
