Biden DHS chief says 'border is closed' but U.S. won't expel children

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Sunday defended the Biden administration's decision to not expel children arriving in the U.S. amid a migrant surge along the southern border, arguing "that's not who we are."

In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Mayorkas said "the border is closed" and that the U.S. was expelling families and adults but will not turn back "young, vulnerable children." He said the Biden administration was working to develop new policies to address the problem with Mexico and Central American countries that are the source of the asylum seekers.
