Biden’s Political Favors to Chinese Nationals

In order to get Joe Biden’s pick for lead of the Department of Homeland Security confirmed, the Democrats will need to win both seats in the Senate runoff elections in Georgia. This is because the last time this individual was nominated to a position of power, not a single Republican senator voted to confirm him.

Biden announced that he wanted Alejandro Mayorkas to lead the Department of Homeland Security. This drew in strong criticism from Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR). Cotton claims Mayorkas is “disqualified” from this position due to his past history of abusing the EB-5 visa program.

“He was found by Barack Obama’s inspector general to be guilty of selling green cards to Chinese nationals on behalf of rich Democratic donors,” Cotton said. “Think about that. Selling citizenship to well-connected Chinese nationals on behalf of Democratic Party donors. That is disqualifying…”

“While I disagree with the Inspector General’s report, I will certainly learn from it and from this process. I appreciate and embrace Secretary Johnson’s decision to create a new protocol to ensure the EB-5 program is free from the reality or perception of improper outside influence,” Mayorkas said.

“As the leader of U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services, I had the responsibility to ensure that cases, including the three that are the focus of the report, were decided as the law required and that agency errors were corrected. I fulfilled that responsibility and I also took steps to ensure that my involvement was understood by those around me,” he said.

In 2013, President Barack Obama nominated Mayorkas to serve as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. In December of 2014, Mayorkas was confirmed, but not one Republican voted for him. Prior to serving as Deputy Secretary, Mayorkas oversaw Citizenship and Immigration Services at DHS from 2009 to 2013.

During a PBS interview years ago, Mayorkas said, “Perhaps a greater population of individuals who would qualify in terms of their age. One of the limitations on DACA was one had to be under the age of 31 at the time of application even though one might have been brought to the United States as a two-year-old decades ago and so really the determinative factor should be how old was one when one came to the United States as opposed to how old one is now.”

Mayorkas will likely not get through a Senate controlled by Republicans. So why would Biden pick him? Bedford suggested the answer may be Biden’s nod to the more left-wing members of the Democratic party.

“The left wing of the party was promised a partnership in a Biden presidency, with Sen. Bernie Sanders claiming Biden personally told him he will “be the most progressive president since FDR.” So far, they’ve been disappointed, with nominees including a Clinton-mold liberal interventionist to the Department of State, and Janet Yellin (over, say, Elizabeth Warren) to Department of the Treasury,” Bedford wrote. “And if Democrats succeed in Georgia to tie the Senate, a Vice President Kamala Harris can push Mayorkas across the finish line and earn the left a man on the inside. If they lose, the left gets a human sacrifice in their honor. Either way, the left gets a try, although it’s unlikely enough to satiate The Squad.”

    I am sickened by the stupidity of the American voters that choose a criminal, willing to sell his soul & country to communist China, because they were unhappy with the demeanor of the sacrificeing true blue AMERICA FIRST PRESIDENT!!! Where the future of MY AMERICA is going, without President Donald J. Trump at the helm just terrifies me. How can liberal Democrats be that ignorant, selfish & self serving to either be unaware and/or uncaring. Terrifying! Heartbreaking. UnAmerican.
