Dem Rep. Ivey: Mayorkas Impeachment Opens US To Cyberattacks

Rep. Glenn Ivey (D-MD) attempted to discredit failed said that the U.S. “isn’t doing enough” to prepare for cyberattacks and blamed it partially on “wasting time on the Mayorkas impeachment,” according to Breitbart.

In a Thursday interview on “New Nation Now,” Ivey claimed that cyberattacks on U.S. communications infrastructure are “exactly the types of things that the Homeland Security Committee should have been looking at instead of wasting time on the Mayorkas impeachment.”

Ivey failed to provide the grounds for the impeachment of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

House Resolution 582 stated, “Secretary Mayorkas has failed to faithfully uphold his oath and has instead presided over a reckless abandonment of border security and immigration enforcement, at the expense of the Constitution and the security of the United States.”

“Secretary Mayorkas has violated, and continues to violate, this requirement by failing to maintain operational control of the border and releasing hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens into the interior of the United States,” the resolution continued.

Ivey opted to deploy a red herring — a classic rhetorical move to distract from the argument at hand — by conflating cybersecurity with the Biden administration’s disastrous open-border policies that Mayorkas is in charge of.

In another rhetorical move — a favorite in the Democrat playbook — Ivey attempted to divert attention from the open U.S.-Mexican border and the crisis of illegal immigration to Russia and China.

“These sorts of vulnerabilities to cyberattacks, I think,” Ivey continued, “are something the United States isn’t doing enough to get prepared for. And when you watch what Russia is doing with respect to Ukraine, you can see that those capabilities are increasing, same with respect to China and Iran.”

“So, I think Congress needs to be doing more,” Ivey said. “We need to shift our focus away from, frankly, a lot of wasted time…the investigations, the impeachments, and all that and get focused on protecting the country.”

Ivey was attempting to shift focus away from the border crisis, a border that is wide open and allowing terrorists to walk freely into the United States.

In December, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned Congress that intelligence reports suggest that terrorists may use the U.S.-Mexican border for potential attacks.
Ivey is almost certainly aware of Wray’s warning but chooses, like Mayorkas, to ignore it.

Cybersecurity is a real threat that needs serious attention. The U.S.-Mexican border is a gaping wound that must be staunched.

Can the U.S. Department of Homeland Security walk and chew gum at the same time, Rep. Ivey?
