Fourteen states on Tuesday called for the immediate resignation of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas in the face of the “disaster on the southwest border,” a situation that, according to Florida’s Attorney General’s Office, places the nation on the brink of a national security crisis.

In a letter to Mayorkas, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, along with 13 other state attorneys general describe Mayorkas’ leadership failures in the midst of a national opioid crisis that Mexican drug cartels are taking advantage of to exploit open border policies.

Mayorkas has failed to fulfill the core function of the agency he leads, Moddy says in a statement.

The Florida attorney general accuses Mayorkas of refusing to enforce federal laws, including deporting criminals and maintaining order at the border.

The letter from the 14 attorneys general alleges that since Mayorkas took office through December 2021, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) seized enough fentanyl (a synthetic opioid) to kill every man, woman and child in the United States six times, an increase of more than 30% under his tenure.

The missive alleges that under his watch, deadly quantities of drugs are flooding the country and thousands of illegal immigrants are entering through the southwest border.

In that context, the letter notes that the number of arrested sex offenders entering the United States increased 213% during the last fiscal year.

It also criticizes that deportations of illegal immigrants have fallen by 70% since 2020.



The other thirteen states joining the joint petition are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.
