On Friday’s show of CNN’s “The Lead,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas dodged how many people the agency expects to cross the border after Title 42 ends, but said about 7,000 people cross the border daily, and more than half are designated under Title 42.

Host Jake Tapper asked: “How many migrants are you expecting at the border?”

Mayorkas replied: “So, we – our responsibility is to plan, prepare for various contingencies and possibilities and then execute according to the possibilities that are actually realized. And that is exactly what we are doing, and have been for several months.”

Tapper then asked: “What is the situation at the border right now? How many undocumented immigrants cross the border?”

Mayorkas replied, “So we’re seeing about 7,000 people.”

After clarifying that he meant 7,000 people a day, Mayorkas added: “And the disposition that we manage depends on the profile of the person and how the law requires them to be addressed. For example, under the Title 42 Authority, which we are exercising now and will exercise through May 23, we are expelling over 50% of them. The rest of them are placed in an immigration enforcement process, in a removal process, and they can then claim relief as the law provides. If they succeed in their claim, then they have created a basis for staying here. If not, they will be removed.”
