House Committee Republicans Unanimously Vote to Recommend Mayorkas Impeachment

Bradley Jaye, Breitbart, January 18, 2024

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is one step closer to impeachment.

All 18 Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee voted Thursday to recommend to the House that Mayorkas be impeached.


Committee Republicans said in a statement:

After our nearly year-long investigation and subsequent impeachment proceedings, and having exhausted all other options to hold him accountable, it is unmistakably clear to all of us—and to the American people—that Congress must exercise its constitutional duty and impeach Secretary Mayorkas. The Secretary has consistently, willfully, and systemically refused to follow the laws passed by Congress, abused his authority, and breached the trust of Congress and the American people on numerous occasions. {snip}


The committee said its investigations “conclusively establish” that Mayorkas bears responsibility for the crisis:

His willful and systemic refusal to follow the laws passed by Congress has incentivized unprecedented mass illegal immigration. He has abused his power by directing his department to implement policies contrary to federal statute and abandoning viable enforcement initiatives {snip}


The House could take up Mayorkas’s impeachment as soon as the week of January 22.
