At a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing on the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) supplemental funding request from Congress on Wednesday, Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kans.) grilled DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over “pull factors”—that is, policy decisions Mr. Moran said are causing the border crisis. “The policy decisions that suggest to migrants that making the dangerous, life-threatening journey to and across our southern border will be rewarded,” Mr. Moran said. In response to Mr. Mayorkas’s suggestion that a “comprehensive approach” is needed to solve the border problem, Mr. Moran said, “It has been my experience in my entire time in Congress that we keep waiting for comprehensive reform, and as a result, we do next to nothing.”
