BREAKING: Democrat DHS Sec MAYORKAS Has Been OFFICIALLY Impeached By The House Of Representatives!

Sharing is Caring!

Here we go, kids….

The House on Tuesday voted along party lines to impeach Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas over his handling of an influx of migrants across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Why it matters: It’s the first time since War Secretary William Belknap in 1876 that a cabinet secretary has been impeached, though Mayorkas is all but certain to be acquitted by the Senate.

  • The vote was Republicans’ second attempt at impeachment following their shocking loss last week, in which the three GOP defections and the absence of House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) led to a tie vote.

Driving the news: The House voted 214-213 to impeach Mayorkas on two counts, “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” and “breach of public trust.”

  • Reps. Ken Buck (R-Colo.), Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) and Mike Gallagher (R-Wisc.) voted with all Democrats against impeachment.

The details: The 22-page articles of impeachment accuse Mayorkas of failing to comply federal law and court rulings around migrant detention and blames him for a surge in border crossings during the Biden administration.
