Watch Josh Hawley fall flat on his face as he questions the DHS secretary

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) tried repeatedly to put words into the mouth of the Homeland Security Secretary and he failed.

Josh Hawley tried to spread a false narrative.


Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) tried so hard to put DHS Secretary Mayorka’s words about the border in his mouth, but was shot down: “Senator, we’re not finished executing our plan. I’ve never suggested anything else . ”

Hawley said, “I don’t want to interrupt … She. Our time is so limited. I want to be sure that i understand 200,000 limit Encounters over two straight lines Months, a record for decades for decades, and you say so me that is success? Are you satisfied with what is? is happening now at the border? “

Sec. Mayorkas, “Senator, as I said at the time and I’m saying now we have a plan. We carry out our plan and we will continue to do so. “

Hawley kept trying: “But you just testified that it was so” Work. I try to understand Is that a success? Do you want to tell me that is so? successfully?”

Mayorkas corrected Hawley: “Senator, we’re not done yet” in executing our plan. I never suggested anything else. We keep doing the work that we are obliged to do to secure our limit. It is an ongoing process and in fact we do it. “

Hawley was obviously not listening. “Are you happy with yours? Progress?”

Mayorkas wrapped him up: “Senator, we have to do something” better and we have to do more and we are committed to it so and we do it. “

The Senate hearing was on threats to homeland security, but Josh Hawley tried to get a narrative spread about the Biden administration’s neglect of problems at the border and it failed completely.

It’s hard to believe that Hawley thinks himself someone capable of winning the presidency if he can’t get the message across at a Senate hearing.
