8 Republicans Join Democrats to Block Impeachment of Biden’s DHS Chief Mayorkas

Several House Republicans crossed the aisle to join with Democrats in blocking a resolution to impeach Democrat President Joe Biden’s Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The articles of impeachment were introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

However, during a Monday vote, eight Republicans joined Democrats in voting to refer the impeachment resolution to committee.

The eight GOP lawmakers who joined Democrats were enough to sway the vote.

The total vote tally was 209-201 in favor of referring the resolution.

Eight Republicans joined with 201 Democrats to refer the resolution.

201 Republicans voted against the move.

23 lawmakers didn’t vote, including 12 Democrats and 11 Republicans.

In a video statement posted to Twitter/X, Greene said that four of the eight Republicans who joined Democrats in the vote serve on the House Judiciary Committee.

She said the committee “is where my articles of impeachment on Secretary Mayorkas have been sitting, and collecting dust, for months … without movement.”

The congresswoman said that her resolution will now return to the committee to “once again collect dust.”

In a statement, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-TX) declared:

“I am appalled by tonight’s decision to refer a motion to impeach Department of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to committee.

“This House leadership ploy kills any chance of impeaching Secretary Mayorkas.”

“I am disappointed in tonight’s results but will continue to fight for the American people and ensure America’s sovereignty remains intact,” Biggs added.

“DHS Secretary Mayorkas has intentionally failed to secure the border for nearly THREE YEARS,” Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) tweeted.

“He deserves to be FIRED.

“Yet tonight, 8 Republicans voted with Democrats to kill @RepMTG’s resolution to impeach Mayorkas.”
