U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene plans to renew her efforts to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas after a failed attempt.
She cited the collapse of the southern border as the primary reason for impeachment and highlighted Mayorkas’s alleged allowance of illegal border crossers, individuals on terrorist watch lists, and special interest aliens.
“Rather than adhering to an oath he took to defend and secure our country and uphold the Constitution, Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas has engaged in a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with the laws of the United States,” she stated.
“Since assuming office, he has allowed approximately 10 million illegal border crossers to invade our country, 1.8 million of whom are known got aways and have evaded U.S. authorities.”
“Because of his open border policies, he’s allowed more than 280 people on terrorist watch lists to be caught while attempting to cross the border between ports of entry as well as approximately 73,000 special interest aliens who are aliens from a nation that promotes terrorist activity, harbors terrorists or poses a security threat to the United States.”
“These numbers do not even account for the approximately 1.8 million known got aways who are roaming the interior of our country. How many of them are terrorists?”
The failed effort caused frustration among House Republicans, with more than one member expressing particularly strong disappointment.
“I will bring my articles of impeachment back to the floor after we get back from the Thanksgiving break,” Greene expressed to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo.
“And this time, the Republicans in Congress better deliver different results. Mayorkas must be impeached and the invasion must stop.”
Greene intends to reintroduce articles of impeachment after Thanksgiving, emphasizing the need for different results from the Republicans.
