House Votes to Impeach Mayorkas… for a Second Time

Thanks to an ongoing border crisis, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has come under increasing scrutiny – basically because he does Biden’s bidding and refuses to do his job. That came to a head on Tuesday evening when the House of Representatives officially voted in favor of impeaching him.

To be sure, the move is long overdue, as Mayorkas has been at the head of a federal agency tasked with securing our borders and protecting our nation at all costs, and yet he’s done nothing of the sort. Instead, he’s changed policies to hurt Americans and blatantly ignored US immigration laws.

If I didn’t know any better, and to be clear, I don’t, I’d say he was actively trying to ruin the United States from the inside out.

Thankfully, with a House now led by the GOP, albeit by the narrowest of margins, there are plenty who have not only seen the error of his ways but are fighting to make sure he’s stopped.

With a vote of 214 to 213 in favor of impeaching Mayorkas, the House has officially been successful. It’s important to point out here that this is the second vote to impeach the Secretary, as the first one failed to secure a majority vote in favor.

According to House Speaker Mike Johnson’s comments on the vote, Mayorkas “willfully and consistently refused to comply with federal immigration laws, fueling the worst border catastrophe in American history.”

Additionally, he “undermined public trust,” “obstructed lawful oversight,” and “violated his oath of office.”

Of course, that doesn’t mean the fight is over. Now, the articles of impeachment shall be passed to the Senate, which comes back to session on February 26.

And seeing how the Senate is led by Democrats, again only narrowly so, it’s unlikely that it will pass in the Upper House. To do so, it will need a two-thirds vote, and the numbers just aren’t there.

As Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says, it’s a “new low” for the GOP. He also called it a “sham impeachment” and an “embarrassment” for Republicans. Funny, that’s what we said when he and his consorts tried that against Trump, not once but twice.
