Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said Thursday on “CBS Morning News” that they “will not expel” young children who cross the U.S.-Mexico border unaccompanied.
Mayorkas said, “Let me draw a distinction between families, if I may, and children who come without an adult — some of these children are as young as 7, 8-year-old girls. So we do not expel them back into the desert. But we say do not come because it is dangerous. There are children tragically who do not make it to the border because of the perils of the journey. So I cannot overemphasize the importance of the message of do not come.”
Anchor Tony Dokoupil said, “Mr. Secretary, I cannot begin to imagine the difficult decision that these families are making. If you say to them this morning, do not come, the next question is going to be how long do I wait and what am I waiting for? Is there going to come a moment where you say, okay, now is the time?”
