DHS chief calls for more volunteers to help manage surge of migrant children at border

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas sent out a plea Monday morning to his workforce asking for additional volunteers to work at the border, according to an email obtained by Yahoo News. This request comes just a few weeks after he created a volunteer force to help Customs and Border Protection process the surge in migrants along the U.S. border with Mexico.
