‘So Clearly A Crisis’: Brianna Keilar Confronts Mayorkas Over Refusal To Say The Southern Border Is in Crisis

Daily Caller: CNN anchor Brianna Keilar confronted Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his refusal to say the U.S.-Mexico border was in crisis.

Mayorkas made a Tuesday appearance on CNN’s “New Day” to discuss the thousands of Haitian refugees joining the already record numbers coming across the southern border from South and Central America, and Keilar asked why he was unwilling to call the unprecedented situation a “crisis.”

Mayorkas began by suggesting that those who had traveled to the border had been victimized by traffickers or people spreading misinformation.

“Vulnerable individuals, having been deceived by smuggling organizations and misinformation take the perilous journey north when we have been quite clear that it will not be successful, and that is not what they should do, it is heart breaking to see these individuals,” Mayorkas said. “It is a human tragedy. And we are addressing it as best we can under the laws that we are employing now.”

“This is really — this is something we haven’t seen before,” Keilar continued. “A — this camp inside of the United States, with thousands of people, what is the reticence to call something that is so clearly a crisis a crisis?” more
