D’Esposito to Newsmax: Criminals More Forthcoming Than Mayorkas

Rep. Anthony D’Esposito, a former New York City police officer, said Sunday on Newsmax that he’s questioned criminals who were more forthcoming with answers than Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was with him during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing last week. 

“It is beyond frustrating,” the New York Republican told Newsmax’s “Sunday Report.” “I spent a career in the NYPD sitting across from individuals who committed murders and gang assaults and shootings, and I think at times I’ve had better and more meaningful conversations with them than I did with Secretary Mayorkas. It’s crystal clear he does not want to answer the questions.”

Mayorkas would not answer yes or no during D’Esposito’s questioning about whether he agrees with New York City Mayor Eric Adams’s contention that the influx of migrants along the southern border will destroy the city.
