With Title 42 set to expire this week and a tidal wave of illegal immigrants predicted to flood across the U.S./Mexico, the cast of CNN This Morning was visibly shocked on Monday to hear calls for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to be fired for his inability to get the situation under control. Co-host Don Lemon even stepped up to defend President Biden on the border and suggested it was a both-sides problem.
The call for Mayorkas to be fired came from former Texas Republican Congressman Will Hurd, who said Mayorkas wasn’t doing everything in his power and was a joke on the national and world stages.
“I think President Biden, to show that there's going to be a change, he has to get rid of all of his officials that were involved in border security. I think that includes Secretary Mayorkas because they have no credibility in the United States, they have no credibility outside the United States,” he told Lemon and co-host Kaitlan Collins, whose eyes went wide at the demand that Mayorkas be sent packing.
