After visiting Del Rio Monday and still refusing to classify 12,000 illegal immigrants camping under a bridge as a crisis, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified Tuesday on Capitol Hill about the administration's strategy going forward. 

Under questioning from Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), Mayorkas defended his approach and claimed it was "working." 

"I just want to go back to your statement earlier to me that you have a plan and that it’s working. Is 13,000 to 15,000 people crossing into the United States just last week, is that working?" Hawley asked. 

"We have a plan. We are executing on our plan," Mayorkas responded. "We continue to do the work that we are required to do to secure our border." 

Mayorkas is back on Capitol Hill Wednesday for testimony with the House Homeland Security Committee.

Meanwhile, Border Czar Kamala Harris is busy advocating for a witch hunt against Border Patrol agents working to protect the country.
