After Republicans score a likely win in the House in November, they have a solid case for impeachment of Department of Homeland Security secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, legal and border experts tell the Daily Caller.
House Republicans released a paper in July outlining how they will secure the Southern border if they take the lower chamber in 2022. Republicans plan to pass the Border Security for America Act, which will complete the Southern border wall and increase funding for staffing of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
On Sept. 19, 2021, Border Patrol agents were photographed attempting to control a flow of Haitian migrants on the Southern border. Outrage ensued after the photographs made it look like the agents were whipping the migrants, when in fact the ropes seen in the pictures were the reigns agents were using to control their horses.
Mayorkas was quick to roundly condemn the border patrol agents for the rumored actions.
“When Republicans take over the House in January, they need to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas,” Mike Davis, founder and president of the Article III Project, told the Caller. “He has willfully refused to enforce our nation’s immigration laws, leading to millions of illegal economic migrants flooding into our country, along with fentanyl and human traffickers.”
“He should also be impeached because he lied to the American people and punished border patrol agents knowing that there was a false media narrative that border patrol agents were whipping migrants, when in fact they were simply controlling their horses,” Davis said.
As border patrol agents confront a record number of illegal migrants at the border, many are looking to Biden’s Department of Homeland Security as the culprit. Mayorkas, who has taken a soft stance towards illegal border crossers, may be in violation of his very oath of office in allowing this to occur, Davis told the Caller.
“When you take an oath to uphold the Constitution and faithfully execute our laws, and you refuse to do it, that’s impeachable. You’re violating your oath. You’re violating the law. The law is very clear that illegal economic migrants cannot flood into this country, and DHS Secretary Mayorkas has willfully, intentionally ignored this. That’s impeachable.”
