DHS SEEKS VOLUNTEERS TO PROTECT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is asked agency staffers to help along the U.S.-Mexico border amid a surge of migrants trying to enter the country.
Mayorkas sent an email to staff that was obtained by Fox News and stated the agency is activating its Volunteer Force to support Customs and Border Protection. . . .
Volunteers will not be used in a law-enforcement capacity. They will instead function in such support duties as making supply runs and preparing meals.
What remains unclear are such issues as who’s eligible to volunteer, what expense will taxpayers incur for travel and other related spending and will the volunteer work result in unfinished government work. . . .
In the last two weeks alone, the amount of migrant children being detained at the border has tripled.
The volunteer force was last used in 2019 under President Trump. Mayorkas said that in 2019, nearly 900 people volunteered at the border.
