GOP-Led House Makes Historic Move To Secure The Border

The millions of illegals swarming over the southern border are not being ignored by the House. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been impeached by the House of Representatives, as they accuse him of deliberately flaunting existing immigration law.

Fox News reports:

The office of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Mayorkas’ impeachment trial will begin later this month. 

“The House impeachment managers will present the articles of impeachment to the Senate following the state work period,” Schumer’s office said in a statement. “Senators will be sworn in as jurors in the trial the next day. Senate President Pro Tempore Patty Murray will preside.” 

Fox continues:

The 214-213 vote was always expected to be tight; Mayorkas narrowly escaped impeachment last week when every single House Democrat showed up to shield him.

Three Republicans also voted down the effort: Reps. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., Ken Buck, R-Colo., and Tom McClintock, R-Calif.

Fox noted:

Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., dismissed any concerns about precedent in comments to reporters hours before the vote on Tuesday.

“Mayorkas is an exceptional case in U.S. history,” Johnson said, accusing him of having done more “damage on the country than any Cabinet secretary that’s ever been.”

“The House has a constitutional responsibility, as I’ve said many times. It’s probably the heaviest next to a declaration of war. And we have to do our job regardless of what the other chamber does,” Johnson said.

Democrats call the impeachment “baseless” even though the country is overrun with illegals committing crimes and receiving aid from the government not sanctioned by voters.
