Politics, policy and a side of pop culture: Major Garrett serves up a balanced diet of serious discussion, humor and food...for thought.
This week, Major interviewed former acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf. Wolf said that U.S. Capitol Police initially rejected help from the Department of Homeland Security during the assault on the Capitol on January 6. He added that he offered to send DHS law enforcement backup just after 2 p.m. that day, after a violent mob of Trump supporters had begun to infiltrate the Capitol. That initial offer was rebuffed by Capitol Police, Wolf said.
Wolf and Garrett also discussed the Biden Administration's immigration policies. Wolf criticized the executive orders and actions the Biden administration had taken with regard to immigration, including rolling back some Trump administration policies. "A lot of these actions are actually very, very dangerous. Because what they are doing, taken together, is they are fueling the crisis that we see on the border today," Wolf said. "They're incentivizing vulnerable populations to continue to come to that border."
