House Republicans are intensifying their calls to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas following a week of unprecedented chaos and illegal migration surges at the southern border.
Members of the House Judiciary Committee, responsible for impeachment proceedings, express their support for initiating the process.
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) declares, “He should be impeached as soon as humanly possible,” while Rep. Ben Cline (R-VA) asserts that impeachment hearings are long overdue and inevitable once the facts are presented.
Rep. Barry Moore (R-AL) emphasizes Mayorkas’s alleged favoring of cartels and child traffickers over the American people, calling for his impeachment due to intentional law violations.
The calls for impeachment arise as the Biden administration ends Title 42 border protection, resulting in record-breaking apprehensions of over 10,000 illegal migrants per day, heightening concerns.
Mayorkas dismisses impeachment demands, stating his focus on the ongoing work at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) during his tenure.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), a long-time advocate for border security, introduces articles of impeachment against Mayorkas and continues to rally support.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) openly supports Mayorkas’s impeachment, collaborating with members and the Homeland Security Committee to strategize the best approach.
Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Mark Green (R-TX) conducts a fact-finding mission to uncover border failures, which could support the Judiciary Committee’s investigation.
