Joyce Questions Secretary Mayorkas on Flawed DHS FY25 Budget Request

Apr 10, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman Dave Joyce (OH-14) questioned Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas during his appearance before the Subcommittee, arguing that the Biden Administration has once again failed to produce a budget that will effectively secure the border.

Watch the full hearing here.

“This budget is not only full of gimmicks that mask the true cost of protecting the Homeland, but it also fails to address the policy-driven crisis that continues at the border. For over three years we have seen skyrocketing illegal immigration at our borders. And every corner of the country can see and feel its impact,” said Congressman Joyce in his opening remarks. “This Administration’s approach to the border is just to manage the chaos – a position all fair-minded Americans reject. Decreasing detention capacity has not worked. Abusing the parole system has not worked. Catch and release has not worked. Executive orders that impede immigration enforcement have not worked. It is our job as appropriators to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars and ensure we are not wasting money doing more of the same and expecting a different result.”
