Mayorkas Says Americans’ Priorities Are Subordinate To ‘Nation of Immigrants’

 May 11, 2023

On Wednesday, Alejandro Mayorkas, President Biden’s border chief was asked if his huge and growing inflow of economic migrants is good for Americans’ wages and rents. He reportedly replied, that this is a “Nation of Immigrants.”

In a press conference to a nearly empty room, the pro-migration border chief, answered a few questions from select  journalists when he presented part of his new plans to import more migrants into Americans’ workplaces and neighborhoods. Mayorkas said

“Our president has led the largest expansion of legal pathways ever,”

- Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security

Reportedly, when ask by Breitbart News to explain how fair Biden’s’ “maximum-migration policies” are to Americans when “wages get pushed down, [and] rents get pushed up.” [amid] “expanding civic chaos”, Mayorkas replied-

“Sir, we are a nation of immigrants. And we are a nation of laws. Individuals who qualify for relief under our laws have a basis to remain in the United States. The contributions of immigrants to this country is quite clear.”

-- Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security

His comments refer back to the to the Cold War lobbyist narrative, created by Democratic linked groups and business interests. This line of thinking emphasized that the United States is a homeland for migrants, not for Americans, which was nationally pushed despite enduring Americans’ primary concerns for its’ citizens. However, this narrative does little at present to demonstrate reality. It has no basis in the law and has little to do with current history when polls including multiple ethnicities demonstrate that majorities of diverse Americans want to welcome fewer not more migrants.

In reality, the Biden migration has added at least six million people with  four million workers  to the nation’s population. After Mayorkas lifts the Title 42 border barrier, millions more are expected. This flood of illegal migrants

has been urged and welcomed by business groups because it cuts Americans’ white-collar salaries and blue-collar wages. For businesses it reduces the marketplace pressure to invest in productivity-boosting technology, in overseas markets and in the heartland states, reducing political and economic  pressure on the federal government to deal with the ongoing drug crises.

Mayorkas insists the border is “secure,” rejecting any criticism of his deadly, wealth-shifting policies. Despite the massive inflow of roughly 2 million global economic migrants in 2022, he continues to make this absurd claim. Reportedly on January 1 he told ABC News-

 “We cannot have the rights and the needs of individuals who are seeing humanitarian relief in the United States be exploited for political purposes,”

-Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security

Each month, he has changed the talking points saying in February 2023, that Congress’ laws are less important than his pro-migration priorities. He said

“Our goal is to achieve operational control of the border … [with] policies that really advance the security of the border, and do not come at the cost of the values of our country,”

- Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security

Interestingly, Mayorkas humanitarian pitch is tied to the promise of cheap labor for business investors. According to, in December 13, he said-

“Our immigration system as a whole is broken. It hasn’t been updated or reformed in more than 40 years. We look to our partner to the north that has a much more nimble immigration system that can be retooled to the needs at the moment. For example, Canada is in need of 1 million workers and they have agreed that in 2023, they will admit 1.4 million … immigrants to fill that labor need that Canadians themselves cannot. We are stuck in antiquated laws that do not meet our current needs. And they haven’t been working for many, many years.”

Further, government officials trying to grow the economy, by raising productivity, exports, and the birth rate want quick results, so they extract millions of migrants from poor countries to serve as extra workers, consumers, and renters. This extraction migration shrinks Americans’ productivity and slows innovation. This is because migration allows employers to boost stock prices by using cheap labor and disposable workers, instead of those skilled American professionals and productivity-boosting technology, that had earlier allowed Americans and their communities to earn more money.

Many polls however show the public wants to welcome some immigrants, but also demonstrates broad and deep public opposition to labor migration, and to the inflow of temporary contract workers. These are jobs needed by the families of blue-collar and white-collar Americans. Senator J.D. Vance (R) OH put it this way in a Tweet-

"Illegal immigration means theft of the American Dream...When you have 25M people who shouldn't be here by law competing w/ American citizens to buy their first home...That's a major problem we should be talking more about in the context of the immigration crisis"

-Senator JD Vance (R) OH

"There are compelling reasons to implement a true America First immigration plan, starting with border security. We are a land of immigrants. Immigration, with assimilation, has generally been good for America.” 

-Niger Innis


"Border security is imperative for national security, public safety and economic success of communities."
