Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is pushing for another House vote on the impeachment of Alejandro Mayorkas.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is making another attempt this month to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas due to his management of the U.S.-Mexico border. The House will vote on a Democratic-led attempt to block the impeachment on Thursday.

On Wednesday, Republican representative Greene from Georgia introduced a resolution to impeach Mayorkas, labeling it as “privileged” and giving the House two days to take action on it.

In November, a decision was made to refer a resolution to the Homeland Security Committee, effectively ending its progress. This move, which was supported by eight Republicans and all Democrats, occurred as the committee was looking into Mayorkas’ management of the border crisis.

The resolution alleges that Mayorkas has broken federal laws and defied the Constitution by not effectively managing the border and safeguarding against an “invasion.”

Republican Rep. Tom McClintock of California, who voted for the Democratic-led motion to refer the last resolution to committee, said Wednesday that Mayorkas is guilty of “maladministration, malfeasance and neglect of duties on a truly cosmic scale.” 

The speaker argued on the House floor that these actions do not qualify as impeachable offenses.

McClintock predicts that if Greene’s efforts to impeach are fruitful, Democrats will likely target conservative Supreme Court justices and Republican leaders for impeachment when they gain majority in the House again.

He stated that there will be no one to prevent them from doing so, as the Republicans have now approved this new and unconstitutional misuse of authority.

Representatives Darrell Issa, Patrick McHenry, and Virginia Foxx, who previously voted in favor of referring the latest resolution, stated earlier this month that the investigation into Mayorkas should be completed before any impeachment vote takes place.

The Department of Homeland Security’s representative stated recently that Greene’s attempt at impeachment was unfounded and a detrimental diversion from our important national security objectives.

The spokesperson stated that the members of the Department of Homeland Security put in a great effort every day to ensure the safety of America. They are urging Congress to take action by providing funding for the government, fixing the flawed immigration system, renewing important resources for DHS, and approving the Administration’s request for additional resources to effectively combat fentanyl and enhance border security.
