DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Gets Bad News, Back In The Hot Seat

Department of Homeland Security Chief Alejandro Mayorkas has gotten bad news as the impeachment articles against him advance.

Along with 11 other lawmakers, Speaker Mike Johnson announced that the Articles of Impeachment against Mayorkas would be submitted to the Senate on April 10, 2024. Speaker Mike Johnson had this to say on Tuesday:

“Together with the 11 House impeachment managers, I sent a letter to Senator Schumer telling him we’ll deliver the articles of Secretary Mayorkas’ impeachment to the Senate on April 10th and that he must hold a full trial.

The American people deserve accountability.” Other GOP lawmakers echoed Johnson’s comments:

Fox News reports:

Once the articles are formally handed off, the Senate must act on them swiftly.

Schumer has not said what he would do, but his public criticism of the impeachment effort suggests it’s very possible that he’ll move to dismiss the trial.

A simple 51-vote majority would be needed for that to occur.

Chad Pergram laid out the next steps in the Mayorkas impeachment below and seemed to cast doubt on the ouster of Mayorkas.

CNN claimed:

House Republicans had intentionally not sent the impeachment articles over to the Senate until Congress completed addressing government funding for this fiscal year, as CNN previously reported.

Both chambers do not return back into session until the week of April 8.
