WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Victoria Spartz questioned Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, during a Judiciary Committee hearing conducting oversight of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Rep.

Rep. Spartz made it clear to the DHS Secretary that, in her numerous trips to the border, she has personally spoken to the men and women on the frontlines who have expressed “frustration at the status quo” and that such have impacted morale among Border Patrol agents. She also pushed for clear number(s) and data points, which the Secretary could not provide.
