Border Crisis

MAYORKAS ON NOTICE: GOP Warns DHS Sec. They Have 'Grounds for Impeachment' if He Doesn't Fix Border

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.06.22

Prominent GOP voices have a message for Alejandro Mayorkas: secure the border or face impeachment.

According to a Fox News exclusive, Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) say Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has to act swiftly in correcting his “gross dereliction of duty” at the southern border.

“In a letter to Mayorkas on Tuesday evening exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, the senators compiled data produced by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that show that the crisis at the southern border has deteriorated since Mayorkas took office 19 months ago,” Fox reports.

“This is gross dereliction of duty and, if not corrected swiftly, could provide grounds for impeachment,” the senators wrote.

“Your failure to faithfully enforce this nation’s immigration laws and willful blindness to the very real humanitarian crisis at our southern border amounts to a gross dereliction of duty and a violation of your oath of office,” the senators added.

“Despite the heroic efforts by the men and women of Border Patrol, who operate with very little support from Washington, D.C., you have failed to achieve any semblance of operational control of the southern border,” they continued.

“Drug cartels produce bulk amounts of fentanyl in Mexico, using the Chinese-supplied ingredients, and smuggle the drug across the U.S.-Mexico border,” the senators explained in their letter. “This amounts to a multi-billion dollar business for transnational criminal organizations, who then launder the money out of the United States and back into China.”

According to CBP, there have been “over 4.4 million illegal crossings, including over 3.5 million apprehensions by CBP and at least 900,000 gotaways, who evaded apprehension.”
