During a Saturday Episode of MSNBC’s “Alex Whitt Reports”, MSNBC host Alex Witt and Democrat Representative Mike Quigley (D-IL) expressed dissatisfaction with Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who announced Republicans will take steps to hold the Biden Administration accountable for the crisis at the Southern Border. These steps include the potential impeachment of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas — something that has MAGA patriots grinning ear to ear.
On MSNBC’s “Alex Whitt Reports, Witt asked Quigley if McCarthy’s strategy for solving the border crisis amounted to “leadership by bullying.” To this, Quigley replied, “You know I think we have heard about this for coming months and it sounds like McCarthy preaching to the faithful.”
Quigley added, “He knows he’s gonna be in a tight race for Speaker within his own party, to get to that threshold number. He is attempting to appease them on an early stage. You know we impeach for people, Presidents who incite violent insurrections and attempted coups. But we impeach Presidents who attempt to extort our allies like Ukraine. We don’t impeach for policy disagreements. ”
Impeaching Secretary Mayorkas is a reasonable action. Quigley is kidding himself when he equates the two impeachments of Donald Trump with the potential impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. While Trump had no impeachable offenses, Mayorkas clearly is unfit for his job — something no honest commentator could leverage at Trump.
Most baffling of all, Mayorkas has denied the border is in crisis — something that indicates a clear dereliction of duty. America needs a DHS director who acknowledges the challenges we face while putting America and her interests first — and that is certainly not Mayorkas.
Truly, if one’s border policy amounts to the absence of any sensible protections on our southern border, impeachment should be on the table. As the DC Enquirer reports, McCarthy announced investigations into Secretary Mayorkas last Tuesday. McCarthy asked Mayorkas to resign and left open the possibility of impeachment inquiries.
“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.”
We look forward to seeing their findings. The future of America in large part depends on it. Our Southern Border is truly at a breaking point.
