Senator Tom Cotton Statement on Alejandro Mayorkas Confirmation Vote

Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on the confirmation vote for Alejandro Mayorkas to be Secretary of Homeland Security:

“Alejandro Mayorkas has flouted immigration law, embroiled himself in scandals, intimidated whistleblowers, abused power on behalf of powerful Democrats, and engineered unconstitutional executive amnesty programs to skirt the will of Congress. The law and public safety will always come second to his own political agenda. He is uniquely unqualified for the Department of Homeland Security.”
