According to an official calendar obtained by APT, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas held nearly two dozen calls with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in the first five months of his tenure.
“At a time when our country was barreling toward an unprecedented border crisis, Secretary Mayorkas gave open-borders activists an unusually prominent seat at the table,” Americans for Public Trust executive director, Caitlin Sutherland said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“This administration’s decision to allow the very people advocating to dismantle DHS to shape its agenda led us to the crisis we’re seeing today. This raises serious questions about who is actually running the show at DHS,” she said.
The meetings coincided with a dramatic lurch to the left by the Biden administration as it sought to slap a moratorium on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportations, scrapped the “Remain-in-Mexico” policy and halted border wall construction.
