DHS Secretary Mayorkas To "Loving" Parents Abroad: "We Will Not Expel" Your Child If Sent Here Alone Through Mexico

|

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expanded on President Biden's statement yesterday that illegal immigrants (especially unaccompanied children) should not enter America illegally at this time, but instead wait until the U.S. is prepared for the influx.

"We have already re-instituted the Central-American Minors Program, which was in the Obama-Biden administration and torn down by the prior administration," he said. "But we understand that out of desperation, some children might not wait, some loving parent might send their child to traverse Mexico alone to reach the southern border -- our southern border."


"I hope they do not make that perilous journey, but if they do, we will not expel them."
