This Tuesday, current House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Majorkas to resign or else face impeachment inquiries when the Republicans officially take control of the House in January.
During a Press Conference along the Southern Border in El Paso, Texas, McCarthy announced the actions a new Republican-led congress will take to oust Majorkas:
“His actions have produced the great wave of illegal immigration in recorded history. Our country may never recover from Secretary Mayorkas’s dereliction of duty. This is why today I am calling on the secretary to resign.” McCarthy said.
“He cannot and must not remain in that position. If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate. Every order, every action, and every failure will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry.”
“If Secretary Mayorkas was in charge of any company, he would have been fired by now, for the failure of what he has caused. The American public deserves more, deserves better, and expects more within their government: enough is enough. We will do whatever it takes. This is my commitment — to the men and women of the Border Control and to the Citizens of the United States of America.”
This is not the first time McCarthy has spoken about impeaching Mayorkas. In October, McCarthy was open to the idea:
“What’s more important than something that happened 15 months ago on a private conversation with about four other people is what’s happening here right now… This is his moment in time to do his job. But at any time if someone is derelict in their job, there is always the option of impeaching somebody,” McCarthy said of Mayorkas in a press conference from Eagle Pass, Texas.
We want Republicans to take action here. We deserve a secure border and a government we can put our faith in to protect it. President Trump and his administration put the concerns of America First. Biden and Biden cronies like Majorkas detest our nation and all that we stand for — and that’s why their border policies we so destructive.
