Wednesday, Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs filed articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Majorkas. This is the second time Biggs has filed to impeach Majorkas, but Democrats ran the House the first time. It won’t get past the Democrat Senate due to Washington’s #1 Rule: “No Democrat is ever held accountable.” But at least it might lead to House impeachment hearings to expose just how damaging Majorkas’ tenure has been for the nation.
Biggs said Majorkas has been “literally attacking the essence of this country” and putting “so many people” in danger by refusing to enforce border security and allowing an unprecedented wave of illegal immigration, terrorists, gang members and deadly drugs into the US. Biggs said Congress has a responsibility to remove any public official “who is causing public harm and violating the public trust. That is impeachment.” Funny, I thought that was what Mayorkas believed was his job description.
This isn’t even the first impeachment filing he’s faced in 2023, and it’s only Groundhog Day. Here’s one that also brings in perjury.
In response, Mayorkas told (guess who?) MSNBC that the U.S. immigration system "has been terribly broken and outdated for decades" (“Really, mommy, that lamp was broken when I got here!”), adding, "In the meantime, within a broken system, we are doing everything that we can to increase its efficiency, to provide humanitarian relief when the law permits, and to also deliver an enforcement consequence when the law dictates. That is exactly what we are doing. And as far as I am concerned, I will continue to do that with tremendous pride in the people with whom I work."
To fact check that, let’s ask some people with whom he works what they think of the job he’s doing. I don’t think he should call any of them as defense witnesses at any of his impeachment trials.
