Statement by Secretary Jeh C Johnson about the DHS Inspector Generals Report Concerning Deputy Secretary Mayorkas

I have read and carefully considered the Inspector General’s report concerning Deputy Secretary Mayorkas. I have known Alejandro Mayorkas since I was first nominated in the fall of 2013 to be Secretary of Homeland Security. I work with him virtually every day. I know Ali to be an exceptionally conscientious, honest and patriotic public official. Like me, he is often impatient with our sluggish government bureaucracy, can at times be very hands-on in resolving issues and problems that are brought to his personal attention, and is always mindful that we are public servants. Ali works hard to do the right thing, and never acts, in my observation, for reasons of personal advancement or aggrandizement. These personal attributes are reflected in the Inspector General’s report.
