JOE FLIPS OUT! Biden Blasts House GOP for Mayorkas Impeachment, 'Petty Political Games'

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.14.24

President Joe Biden is unhappy with House GOP members for impeaching failed border boss and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Tuesday night; he calls it “petty political games.”

“History will not look kindly on House Republicans for their blatant act of unconstitutional partisanship that has targeted an honorable public servant in order to play petty political games,” Biden said in a statement following the vote.

“Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas, a Cuban immigrant who came to the United States with his family as political refugees, has spent more than two decades serving America with integrity in a decorated career in law enforcement and public service,” he said. “From his time in the Justice Department as a U.S. Attorney to his service as Deputy Secretary and now Secretary of Homeland Security, he has upheld the rule of law faithfully and has demonstrated a deep commitment to the values that make our nation great.”

House Republicans failed to impeach Mayorkas last week on a 216-214 vote. Though it passed the House this week, the U.S. Senate will likely fail to convict him.

“Congress needs to act to give me, Secretary Mayorkas, and my administration the tools and resources needed to address the situation at the border,” Biden raged. “The House also needs to pass the Senate’s national security supplemental right away. We will continue pursuing real solutions to the challenges Americans face, and House Republicans have to decide whether to join us to solve the problem or keep playing politics with the border.”

Meanwhile, House Majority Whip Tom Emmer offered up a concise explanation for why House GOP members are moved forward with the impeachment of Mayorkas.

“Secretary Mayorkas’s willful refusal to enforce federal law created an unprecedented crisis at our southern border and left innocent Americans to pay the price,” Emmer told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement. “Because Mayorkas failed to do the honorable thing by resigning, House Republicans fulfilled our Constitutional duty by voting to impeach.”
