The lead watchdog for the Homeland Security Department ripped the No. 2 official at the agency Thursday for allegedly intervening in three visa cases tied to powerful Democrats.
In at least one case, Inspector General John Roth said, the intervention by DHS Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was “unprecedented.”
Roth testified at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, two days after he released a 99-page detailing how Mayorkas — while he was head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services — allegedly used his position to help politically connected projects.
My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.
