This Is Why DHS Denied Info to Congress on Illegal Alien Terrorists


DHS denied Congress’s request for general information on illegal alien criminals and terrorists because they want the criminals and terrorists to agree to it.

The Department of Homeland Security has a new policy requiring Congress members requesting information on criminal non-citizens accused of terror and assassination plots to get privacy waivers from them first.

Unless Republicans who made a recent request agree, DHS will not give them information about the threats.

This is from the most transparent administration ever.

In a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, obtained by Fox News Digital, Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee say the agency “has implemented a new policy requiring Members of Congress to obtain signed privacy release waivers from criminal non-U.S. citizens, including those illegally in the United States, and submit that waiver to the Department before the Department will provide the Committee with general information about the threats posed by such individuals.”

Republicans only found out when they requested briefings about two terrorist plots.

The first was an alleged ISIS-inspired plot to assassinate former President George W. Bush (Iraqi citizen, Shihab Ahmed Shihab Shihab, living in Columbus, Ohio is charged with aiding and abetting a plot to kill former President George W. Bush), and the second an alleged July 4 mass shooting plot by two illegal immigrants (they planned a mass shooting and are charged with possession of a firearm so far).

“It is unconscionable that DHS would implement or maintain any policy or practice to directly or indirectly inhibit Congress’s ability to conduct timely, highly relevant oversight that may require legislative action,” the letter by Reps. John Katko, R-NY, August Pfluger, R-Texas, and Mayra Flores, R-Texas, says.

It appears to send a message to terrorists that the Biden regime is on their side.

How could any decent lawmaker function without full information.
Maybe DHS is admitting the majority of lawmakers are indecent.

The Department of Homeland Security doesn’t make law (or policy); the Congress does.

When the Congress request information from a Bureaucrat. If the Bureaucrat doesn’t supply that information in 5 Working days, the Bureaucrat should automatically be fired, then charged with contempt of Congress, and jailed. The Congress should process all charges of Contempt of Congress internally without Justice Department involvement. You can’t have the Executive Branch ignoring the Congress.

The Congress has been ducking it’s duty for over 50 years, but it’s The People who keep voting the wankers into office! Because the Congress no longer has any balls, the Executive Branch has way more power than it should. This is because Congressmen are afraid of the Intel Agencies.
