Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is trying once more to remove DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas from office; she reintroduced articles of impeachment on the House floor Wednesday afternoon.
This is the third time MTG has tried to get some momentum on a Mayorkas impeachment effort.
“Rather than adhering to an oath he took to defend and secure our country and uphold the Constitution when he was sworn in as Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas has engaged in a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with the laws of the United States,” reads the resolution.
A DHS spokesperson offered comment to The Daily Caller on MTG’s efforts.
“Secretary Mayorkas continues to be laser-focused on the safety and security of our nation. This baseless attack is completely without merit and a harmful distraction from our critical national security priorities,” wrote a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Every day, the men and women of the Department of Homeland Security work tirelessly to keep America safe. They need Congress to stop wasting time and do its job by reforming our broken immigration system, reauthorizing vital tools for DHS, and passing the Administration’s supplemental request to properly resource the Department’s critical work to stop fentanyl and further secure our borders.”
MTG shared the clip of her reintroducing the art9cles of impeachment on her X account, saying “BREAKING: I just reintroduced articles of impeachment against DHS Secretary Mayorkas! While some members, like Tom McClintock, want to bloviate endlessly while imagining themselves wearing a powdered wig, the American people want action.”
“These members whine about ‘due process’ while protecting Mayorkas from facing accountability for his violation of our border security laws. Impeachment IS due process. It would put Mayorkas in front of the Senate to face trial. We’ve seen the evidence of him breaking the law. It’s time for the Senate to try him for it.”
“Today, I reintroduced my articles of impeachment against Secretary Mayorkas because impeachment is EXACTLY what the founders intended for the House to do when a member of the executive branch intentionally violates the laws written by the legislative branch.”
