GOP candidate calls for DHS Secretary Mayorkas to resign over border failures

There have been an increasing number of calls for some of President Joe Biden's top officials to resign and even calls for impeachment. 

One top official under the gun is Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, primarily due to his abysmal handling of the immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border.

According to a Breitbart exclusive, the latest Republican calling for Mayorkas' job is former DHS employee and Virginia Republican congressional candidate Cameron Hamilton.

Hamilton held nothing back as he excoriated the DHS chief and urged him to resign for "violating the public trust."

What's he saying?

Hamilton was in charge of roughly 4,000 Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) when he worked under Mayorkas.

He joined the agency under former President Donald Trump and remained for the first two years of Biden's presidency, and he had a lot to say about the poor state of the border on Mayorkas' and Biden's watch.

Hamilton slammed the Biden administration for what he described as a complete "regression" of the immigration crisis at the border, and credited Trump for the policies that helped mitigate the number of illegal crossers.

"What I’m asking for is for Secretary Mayorkas to resign because of his violation of public trust," Hamilton told Breitbart over the weekend.

Breitbart added:

Hamilton said that at DHS he helped craft appropriations language for the department, and said that passing individual appropriations bills can help fix the issues plaguing the country.

Electing "good people"

Hamilton's solution for fixing the southern border issues, according to his thoughts, begins by electing the right people and kicking those out of power who have sat on the sidelines while the situation continued to worsen.

"Let’s bring good governance back. The only way we bring about good government is when we elect good people with good ethics to public office who sincerely care about the job that they’re trying to obtain," Hamilton told Breitbart.

President Biden and his administration immediately rolled back several Trump-era policies upon entering office, which has taken an already serious issue and made it significantly worse.

Sadly, nothing will change anytime soon, and it will undoubtedly take a Trump or another strong Republican president even to begin to undo the damage done by the Biden administration.
