Biden’s Homeland Security pick flagged by whistleblowers for preferential treatment with visas | Just The News

Here we go. Another corrupt political hack.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Joe Biden’s choice for Homeland Security chief if he becomes president, was flagged in 2015 by the agency’s internal watchdog for improperly intervening to help Democrat-connected foreign investors involved in the EB-5 work visa program, records show. Then-Homeland Security Inspector General John Roth wrote that the Mayorkas interventions as President Obama’s deputy homeland secretary proved exceedingly rare because as many as 15 “courageous” whistleblowers inside the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service came forward to report his behavior and nearly all wanted to keep their identities secret to avoid retaliation. “Each conveyed the same factual scenario: certain applicants and stakeholders received preferential access to DHS leadership and preferential treatment in either the handling of their application or petition or regarding the merits of the application or petition,” Roth wrote at the time.
