House GOP New Articles Of Impeachment Against Mayorkas

On Sunday, House Republicans, led by Rep. Mark Green (R-TN), unveiled new articles of impeachment against Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. This decisive action, coming from the House Homeland Security Committee, marks a significant escalation in the ongoing battle over the Biden administration’s open borders illegal immigration disaster.

The charges against Mayorkas include two separate charges. The first article of impeachment accuses him of a willful and systematic failure to enforce federal immigration laws, leading to a substantial increase in illegal immigration. The second article goes further, alleging a breach of public trust through false statements to Congress and the American people about the true state of border security.

Green, the committee chair, presented a scathing indictment: “Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ impeachment is irrefutably justified. He has not only systematically refused to comply with immigration laws set by Congress, but he has also misled the public and obstructed congressional oversight of his department. His actions have been disastrous for our country.”

Under Mayorkas’ tenure, there have been more than 8.5 million illegal alien encounters at U.S. borders. The lack of transparency regarding the exact number of these individuals released into the country only adds to the concern. Mayorkas himself reportedly admitted that more than 85% of illegal migrants encountered at the border are released into the U.S.

Furthermore, the amount of fentanyl seized and the number of individuals on the terrorist watchlist apprehended under Mayorkas’ leadership is alarming. These figures, which include more than 53,000 lbs. of fentanyl and over 300 watchlist suspects, starkly highlight the risks posed by the current border policies.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) emphasized the urgency of the situation on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” telling host Maria Bartiromo, “House Republicans are the last line of defense against the Biden administration’s catastrophic border policies.”

Moreover, Green’s criticism extends beyond Mayorkas, pointing to a broader disregard for the constitutional separation of powers. He asserts, “This is an affront to a coequal branch of government, to the Constitution, and to the American people. The House of Representatives must impeach Secretary Mayorkas.”

The DHS’s response to these allegations later on Sunday, dismissing them as “political games” and lacking substantive evidence, fails to address the core issues raised by the Republicans.

Despite the gravity of these charges and the compelling case laid out by House Republicans, the political reality in the Senate suggests that a conviction is unlikely, as removal from office would require a two-thirds vote.

Whether Mayorkas is removed from office or not, this action by House Republicans reflects the American people’s growing frustration with the Biden administration’s lawless approach to protecting the nation.
