Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene ‘confident’ that GOP will impeach Mayorkas

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene assured supporters that the House would finally be able muster enough votes to impeach Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week when it votes.

After two failed attempts, it’s now up to the Republicans. Ms. Greene is one of the GOP’s leading forces in impeachment and she believes that the third time will be the charm.

She told her supporters, in an email for fundraising purposes: “We’ve got another chance to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas and I am confident that we will succeed this time.”

Voting could begin as soon as Tuesday evening.

Last week, Republicans attempted to pass the bill but failed in what appeared to be a tied vote. One Republican was absent and three Republicans joined Democrats in opposing it.

This was after a first, forced vote in November by Ms. Greene when eight Republicans joined Democrats and stalled the process.

Homeland Security Department called the vote this week a “stunt”, and “baseless”.

The Department of Homeland Security said that if members of Congress are concerned about national security, then they should stop wasting their time with this unconstitutional, pointless impeachment. Instead, the time could be better spent on bipartisan legislation fixing our broken immigration laws, and providing resources for border protection.

Officials predicted that impeachment would be quickly defeated in the Senate. Senators of both parties said it was not going anywhere.

In the House of Representatives, impeachment requires only a majority vote. However, conviction and removal require a Senate two-thirds vote.

In the articles of impeachment, Mr. Mayorkas is accused of violating immigration laws and of breaching public trust through lying to Congress and public.

Mayorkas claims he is doing his best within the existing law. He says that Congress must give him more tools.

Republicans claim he has the same laws as Trump’s administration. In 2020, the border was largely secured. But under Mayorkas it descended into chaos.

Customs and Border Protection reported 92,000 encounters nationwide with undocumented migrants in December 2020. This was the last month of former President Trump’s presidency. In December 2023, three years later, Mr. Biden encountered four times as many unauthorized migrants.
