House impeached Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas sending to Senate for trial


Important Takeaways:

  • The House of Representatives voted tonight to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for dereliction of duty in failing to secure the U.S. southern border. During his tenure under President Joe Biden, Mayorkas has overseen what has been described as an ‘invasion’ of the U.S. by illegal immigrants — with the total number of illegals in the country doubling from 10 million in 2021 to 20 million in 2024.
  • An initial attempt by the House to impeach Secretary Mayorkas last week failed after several key Members were absent, robbing the majority of the votes needed to pass the impeachment resolution. However, with Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) returning to Washington, D.C., after announcing his cancer was in remission, House leadership moved forward with a second vote, confident they had secured a majority for impeachment.
  • Now that the House has formally impeached Secretary Mayorkas, the Senate will convene to hold a trial and determine if the Biden appointee should be removed from office.
  • Under Mayorkas, the Department of Homeland Security has weakened border protection, including reducing the number of screening questions used for Chinese nationals encountered at the border from 40 to just five. The change has raised national security concerns that the Biden government is making it easier for Chinese intelligence agents to infiltrate the U.S. The unchecked flow of illegal immigrants has also led to acts of violence against law enforcement in some of America’s most populous cities.
