President's Nominee to head USCIS - moving testimony

So stated Alejandro Mayorkas before the US Senate:
As one who was granted citizenship through the beneficence of our government and by virtue of my family's
journey to this country, I understand deeply the gravity as well as the nobility of the mission to administer our
immigration laws efficiently and with fairness, honesty, and integrity. The most important responsibility of

appreciation of this mission.
