House proposes cutting Mayorkas' salary whenever he delays reporting border statistics

The legislation in question was proposed by Congresswoman Stephanie Bice (R-OK), who noted that the "lack of accountability is fostering chaos."

The House of Representatives recently approved impeachment articles against Alejandro Mayorkas, with the majority of congressmen alleging that the official breached his oath. Not content with this, Republican Stephanie Bice (R-OK) will introduce legislation that aims to cut the Secretary of Homeland Security's salary every time he delays the release of border statistics.

As reported by The Daily Wire, the official was delaying the publication of border encounters for the last six months, revealing the statistics up to three weeks after the end of the month in question and during weekends.

Indeed, Bice's Bill, baptized as the Timely Information Law, seeks to discourage this behavior by directly targeting the official's wallet. According to the text, the agency should publish the border figures within seven days after the end of each month. If this doesn't happen, the salary of the Office of the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security will be decreased by 25%.

"In an attempt to hide the monthly illegal crossings, they consistently withhold information until late on Fridays or even the weekends to attempt to hide the truth from Americans. Our border is out of control, and the lack of accountability is fostering chaos. My legislation, the Timely Reporting Act, restores transparency and forces the Biden Administration to report illegal migration data in a timely fashion," she stated. "If they fail to do their job, they will be held accountable and face cuts to their salaries," she added.

The congresswoman added that she was not working alone on the legislation and that it has at least 22 co-sponsors.

Her position was joined by Mark Green, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and one of the leading promoters of the impeachment against Mayorkas. According to the congressman, the official intentionally delays border statistics to avoid further political inquiry.

"By strategically holding the release of these numbers until the Friday before Christmas, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is unabashedly showing the full measure of his duplicity," he said a few days before Christmas about the statistics from November 2023.
