Opposing Biden’s Nominees

An Update From Heritage Action For America


Mayorkas Confirmation Vote

The vote to confirm Alejandro Mayorkas to lead the Department of Homeland Security is expected to occur as early as Tuesday night. The immediate confirmation of Mayorkas was prevented by the objections of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), which helped delay the confirmation process.

Mayorkas holds a “defund the police” view of homeland security enforcement, supports extreme open border policies, and has advocated for amnesty for every illegal immigrant in the country. Heritage Action will include the vote on our legislative scorecard. Read our key vote alert.

>> Call your senator: Urge them to vote NO on the confirmation of Alejandro Mayorkas to lead the Department of Homeland Security.

Joe Biden’s call for “unity” is a farce…and it’s most evident in his nominations to lead major government departments.

Biden is now tasked with filling his cabinet and choosing individuals to lead major government departments.

But remember, people are policy—the individuals Biden picks to run these departments will help determine the direction of the country.

And currently, Biden’s selections for his Cabinet are simply too extreme for the American people. Why? Because his nominees have demonstrated a disregard for the views of nearly half of the people of the United States and want to fundamentally alter their lives rather than bringing Americans together.

Biden’s selection of Alejandro Mayorkas, Xavier Becerra, and Neera Tanden to lead the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Office of Management and Budget should concern not only conservatives but all Americans.

Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson released a statement this past week opposing Biden’s nominees:

“Mayorkas, the architect of the DACA program and leading advocate of amnesty, has advocated to admit millions more illegal immigrants and push for citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. Tanden, a key proponent of the Affordable Care Act, has not only supported extreme policies but attacked conservatives repeatedly on Twitter — including some of the same Senators she now asks for a confirmation vote. Becerra’s only experience in healthcare is working to strip the Little Sisters of the Poor of religious exemptions and pushing taxpayer funding for partial-birth abortions.

Rather than inspiring confidence in his calls for unity, President-elect Biden’s nominees seek to force a far-Left agenda on the American people and radically shift the direction of the country.”

We can’t let the Senate confirm Biden’s most radical nominees! We need your help to stop the confirmation of these nominees before they alter the course of our nation for generations to come!

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Sign up to call your senators and encourage your friends and family to do so as well. Big Tech continues to censor conservative leaders and prevents many organizations (like ours) from running political ads on their platforms. The only way we can spread the word is by word of mouth.
  2. Check out our activist toolkit and share the graphics on social media. We can’t run ads on social media, but YOU can post images and links on your social accounts!
