Alejandro Mayorkas made this order at the border that will leave you red with rage


The Biden admin’s handling of the border is some of the worst we’ve ever seen. It begs the question, is this all on purpose?

And Alejandro Mayorkas made this order at the border that will leave you red with rage.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents are being instructed by the Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to ask immigrants they encounter for their “preferred pronouns” and to use gender-neutral terminology while on the job.

The guidance, titled “Guide to Facilitating Effective Communication with Individuals Who Identify as LGBTQI+,” obtained by the Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project, also instructs CBP officials to avoid using specific phrases.

“This job aid provides guidance to all CBP employees who interact with the public … including individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming,” the document reads. “This guidance should be used by all CBP employees who encounter members of the public.”

The agency goes on to demand that Customs and Border Patrol agents do not use “‘he, him,’ ‘she her’ pronouns until you have more information about, or provided by, the individual.” CBP personnel are also not permitted to use titles such as “Mr,” “Mrs,” “sir,” or “ma’am.”

“Keep in mind that gender identity (sense of self) and sexual orientation (attraction) are separate and distinct; hence, transgender people, for example, may identify as heterosexual, gay, lesbian, or bisexual,” the document also reads.

“The terms and definitions in this job guide are not universal. Some LGBTQI+ individuals may define these terms differently.”

The Department of Homeland Security’s insistence on using new terminology comes amid a historic border crisis. Since President Joe Biden assumed office, an estimated 1.7 million illegal immigrant stragglers have entered the United States.

Rep. Mark Green (R-TN), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said the guideline is an insult to agents pleading for more resources to tackle the border’s illegal immigration epidemic.

“Border Patrol agents are crying out for tools and policies that will help them do their jobs, but are being handed manuals on misgendering instead,” Green told The Daily Wire. “This makes a mockery of those who are doing their best to keep our borders secure.”

“In the last few weeks, we’ve seen multiple reports of criminal illegal aliens who have been released into our country on Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ watch, as well as the apprehension of a record number of individuals on the terrorist watchlist — in large part because our Border Patrol agents are so overwhelmed by this unprecedented crisis,” Green added.

“I’m sure, however, Americans will be comforted to know that those agents are now being trained on which pronouns these bad actors prefer.”

The recommendation comes just days after The Daily Wire revealed that the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties commissioned a RAND Corporation paper urging the DHS to avoid inappropriate language.

The research recommended that the DHS replace the phrases “male” and “female” with the terms “nonbinary,” “cisgender,” and “transgender.”

According to the Rand Corporation analysis, phrases like “illegal immigrant” and “unlawful entry” should be replaced with “undocumented noncitizen” and “entry without inspection” or “undocumented entry.” Other names, such as “jihadist,” “looter,” “rioter,” and “trespasser,” were deemed “racially charged.”

Green labeled the RAND Corporation’s report a “deceptive and Orwellian strategy,” accusing it of being a “ploy to conceal Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ complete failure of leadership.”

He went on to point out that Mayorkas “has not only chosen to implement a reckless open-borders agenda — he is using taxpayer dollars to change our language in an effort to hide the consequences of those policies.”

Green proposed that Congress utilize its budget authority to encourage the agency to focus more on genuine border enforcement.

The Department of Homeland Security did not reply to a request for comment.
