UPDATE: DHS Secretary’s Impeachment ADVANCES


The articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have advanced to the House floor where they will be put up for a vote.

Following an 8-4 decision by the House Rules Committee, the articles of impeachment will now go to Congressional lawmakers, though it is unclear whether or not the articles of impeachment will pass in the House.

Several Republican lawmakers have already explained that they will not vote to impeach the DHS chief.

Rep. Clay Higgins had some words for those Republicans who are against the impeachment of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Higgins stated:

“A few Republicans oppose the impeachment of Mayorkas because they fail to grasp the actual 1789 meaning of Constitutional writ.

If they seek affirmation of their position, then let the historical record of our Republic reflect a full and vigorous Senate trial. America deserves closure on the “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” disagreement.”

Just The News explained:

The articles secured the backing of the Homeland Security Committee last week in an 18-15 vote.

Republicans have accused Mayorkas of a “breach of trust” and a “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” in relation to his handling of the unprecedented influx of alien arrivals at the southern border.

Ronny Jackson writes: “Secretary Mayorkas’s willful refusal to comply with federal immigration laws is OBVIOUS!!! He has done everything in his power to incentivize and allow ILLEGAL immigration. Bringing articles of impeachment against him is a NO-BRAINER.”

Fox News featured this response from Mayorkas:

The secretary has called the Republican charges against him “politically motivated and completely baseless,” pointing to constitutional scholars who have weighed in with similar assessments.

He said if it comes to a trial in the Senate, which generally follows an impeachment vote, he’s prepared to defend himself.
