    DHS Chief: We Should Not See Borders as ‘Lines that Mark National Boundaries and Divide Us’

    by EDWIN MORA 5 May 2021Washington, DC

    U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, on Tuesday told the annual Washington Conference on the Americas the Western Hemisphere should not see borders as lines that divide nations, but rather “as a point of connection” that brings countries together.

    “Rather than viewing borders solely as the lines that mark national boundaries and that divide us from one another, we should see borders as a point of connection, as the place where the flow of people and goods from different countries interact and intersect,” Mayorkas
    declared during the annual conference hosted by the Council of the Americas (COA) on Tuesday.

    Replying to @ASCOA"Rather than viewing borders solely as the lines that mark national boundaries [...] we should see borders as a point of connection. This view recognizes the good we can offer each other and the connection between international exchange and economic vitality."— @SecMayorkas

    "Our vision for migration management and our immigration system is rooted in the belief that people should be treated with dignity and respect. This is not inconsistent with enforcing the law and securing our border."—

    His comments came amid the border crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border fueled by a migrant surge, primarily from Central America’s Northern Triangle region (Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador).

    The flow of migrants is overwhelming DHS resources and the border agents who operate under the department, forcing the release of migrants into U.S. communities.

    Many of the migrants reaching the border are unaccompanied children and families from Central America. Republicans have accused the Biden administration of pushing an open borders agenda.

    Although President Joe Biden keeps insisting the border is closed, he struck a more welcoming tone as a candidate, and migrants keep coming in with some released into U.S. communities.

    The Biden administration’s message is falling on deaf ears, in part due to online ad campaigns by human smugglers who promise guaranteed entrance into the U.S. under the current president.

    Human smugglers, including those who rape women and girls during the journey, benefit financially from the influx of migrants.

    Republicans have blamed Biden’s undoing of Trump-era immigration policies for the border crisis.

    Mayorkas indicated that the Biden Administration is working on creating an immigration system where people are “treated with dignity and respect.”

    At the
    #2021WCA, @SecMayorkas lays out @DHSGov initiatives on tackling transnational crime and securing trade routes so as to "expand legitimate businesses in the region and ensure that supply chains are not threatened by maligned foreign influence, as well as criminal networks.”

    “This is not inconsistent with enforcing the law and securing our border,” he added.

    The governments of Guatemala, Mexico, and El Salvador have, directly and indirectly, blamed the Biden administration’s welcoming tone for the surge at the U.S. southern border.

    Mayorkas also mentioned that DHS is working to ensure a robust and safe movement of goods and people across the Western Hemisphere.
