House Republicans, fresh off of issuing subpoenas to the Biden Crime Family, are following up on its sudden spate of action with an announcement that Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas is set to be impeached next week.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a conservative firebrand, is spearheading the move to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas, saying he “broke the law” and was to blame for the problem at the southern border with migrants.
On Thursday, she announced the impeachment resolution on the House floor.
“[This is a resolution for] impeaching Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security for high crimes and misdemeanors. Resolved, that Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate.”
Earlier, MTG announced her intention to impeach Mayorkas.
The Georgia Republican introduced the resolution as privileged, which means that within two legislative days, the House must consider the measure on the floor. By approving a motion to adjourn the resolution, legislators could circumvent the need for a formal vote on the initiative.
“We can’t wait any longer in Washington, D.C.,” Green said earlier on the steps of the Capitol building.
Greene stated that Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) who represents a border district, is in favor of the resolution and will collaborate with her to garner Republican support for an impeachment of Mayorkas.
“I hope (Johnson) supports it,” Greene said. “I think everyone in our conference and I would hope Democrats as well would support impeaching someone that is breaking the law through his job and breaking his oath of office.”
Two of Greene’s constituents were slain in a car accident after a vehicle suspected of transporting smuggled migrants evaded police and collided during a pursuit, she said. The resolution was subsequently passed.
While Greene’s resolution alleges that Mayorkas “has neglected to maintain operational control of the border” and “willfully admitted border crossers, terrorists, human traffickers, drugs, and other contraband,” it does not elaborate.
“Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, in his failure to uphold the oath he took, has, by his actions, lost the trust of citizens of the United States to faithfully execute the laws of the United States,” the resolution concludes.
