Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday that the American immigration system is “broken,” while stating that not all of the 1.2 million illegal immigrants with final removal orders should be deported.Committee ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley, R‑Iowa, pointed to a Sept. 30 memo in which Mayorkas said “the fact that an individual is a removable non-citizens should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.” Grassley then asked if this still applied to those who already have final removal order against them.GOP SEN.

He then called into question the validity of those orders.“I would not necessarily accept the fact that all of them have received due process,” he said.
