Activists gather outside Mayorkas’ house, protest Biden’s ‘racist’ immigration policies
A group of activists gathered outside the home of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to protest the Biden administration’s “racist” immigration policies.
Members from Never Again Action, a left-wing political group, draped Mayorkas’s house in a banner that read “BIDEN PRESIDENCY, TRUMP POLICY.”
“The Biden administration promised to end Trump’s cruel immigration policies and replace them with a ‘fair and humane’ immigration system,” said Alyssa Rubin, campaigns director for Never Again Action. “Instead they’ve doubled down on the worst of Trump’s racist policies.”
The protest comes amid stark criticism of the Biden administration’s handling of the thousands of Haitian migrants at the Mexico-US border in Del Rio, Texas.
“Secretary Mayorkas, himself a refugee and the child of Holocaust survivors, has now joined the long list of US officials enforcing racist policies that turn away desperate refugees and migrants, sending many of them back to their deaths,” Rubin said. “We are here today in honor of our ancestors who died because they were turned away from the US by policies just like these.”
