The American People Shouldn’t Have to Pay the Price Because Hawley Feels the Need to Pander to Extreme Base

WASHINGTON - Today, the Accountable Senate War Room released the following statement on Senator Josh Hawley’s decision to block a swift confirmation for President-elect Biden’s Department of Homeland Security nominee, Alejandro Mayorkas.

“After helping to incite a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Senator Hawley has the gall to block the incoming Biden administration from having the top homeland security official in place on day one,” said Mairead Lynn, spokesperson for the Accountable Senate War Room. “Alejandro Mayorkas would be responsible for stopping future insurrectionist attacks against our country and this move by Hawley puts our national security at risk yet again. The American people shouldn't have to pay the price just because Hawley feels the need to pander to the extreme wing of his base.”
