DHS urges people to wear blue to raise awareness about human trafficking

As massive numbers of migrants inundate the nation's southern border month after month, the Department of Homeland Security and Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas, who is being targeted for impeachment, promoted a bid to increase awareness about human trafficking.

"All you need is a piece of blue clothing! Join us today in supporting the fight against #HumanTrafficking by wearing a piece of blue and posting a pic to social media with #WearBlueDay," DHS tweeted.

"Today we wear blue to recognize the victims of human trafficking, pay tribute to those who work to rescue the victims and hold the perpetrators accountable, and recommit ourselves to the critical mission of eradicating this vicious crime," Mayorkas tweeted.

The tweets come as conservatives like Rep. Chip Roy of Texas have been clamoring for the Biden administration to secure the southern border.

Republicans pounced on Mayorkas' post.

"Americans: 'Shut down the border and stop human trafficking,'" GOP Sen. Mike Lee of Utah tweeted. "Mayorkas: 'Have you seen my blue tie?'" Lee added.

"Under your watch our border has turned into the largest human trafficking operation in history. This virtue signaling post has as much authenticity to it as if Epstein had posted it. Yet the number of Epstein victims pales in comparison to the crimes your policies have enabled," Republican Rep. Michael Cloud of Texas tweeted.

"Under your watch, 'Mr Secretary', human trafficking at our southern border is at an all-time high. If you truly cared about victims of human trafficking, you'd secure our border and stop enriching the cartels. I see an impeachment for dereliction of duty in your future," GOP Rep. Diana Harshbarger of Tennessee tweeted.
