DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admits he DIDN'T expect the Delta surge at the border and says 1 in 5 migrants have an 'illness' after Trump claimed they're bringing 'contagious diseases'

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Monday he did not expect such a surge in the Delta Covid-19 variant as he admitted that the 'rate of illness' at the southern border is now 20%.

'What I didn't expect was the tragic rise of the delta variant,' the secretary said at the virtual Immigration Law and Policy Conference Monday afternoon. 'And we took a step back by reason of that. I did not expect to be in late September where we are.'

He said that one in five migrants are showing up at the border with an 'illness.'
