Biden’s DHS Chief Mayorkas Impeached by House in Historic Vote

House lawmakers have voted to impeach Democrat President Joe Biden’s Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The impeachment resolution passed with a vote of 214-213.

The historic vote makes Mayorkas the first cabinet official to be impeached since the 1870s.

Under Mayorkas’ tenure, more than 10 million illegal aliens have entered the U.S. by crossing the open Southern Border.

The border crisis has doubled the existing population of migrants in just three years under Mayorkas.

Mayorkas has now officially been impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives over his “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” and “breach of public trust.”

WATCH:

Last week’s effort to impeach Mayorkas failed by one vote because three Republicans voted with all the Democrats against the move.

The vote was made possible only by the return of House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA).

Scalise missed last week’s vote while undergoing treatment for blood cancer, according to The Hill.

Mayorkas was accused of demonstrating a “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law,” and “breaching the public trust.”

However, Democrats suggested the allegations are based on nothing more than disagreements over policy or performance failings, but not impeachable crimes.

“Secretary Mayorkas is a danger to every American,” said Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) in a post on X.

“I’m voting to impeach him.”

The GOP leaders moved to hold the vote before their majority shrinks even further.

In a closely watched special election Tuesday in New York, to replace expelled Republican Rep. George Santos, former Democratic Rep. Tom Suozzi beat “Republican” candidate Mazi Melesa Pilip – a registered Democrat.

Republicans continued the impeachment effort after rejecting an effort in the Senate to craft a bipartisan border deal to address many of the same issues House conservatives are raising.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) called the Senate’s deal, which pairs aid for Ukraine with changes to border policy, “dead on arrival.”

Eventually, most Republicans in the House and Senate criticized the bill as insufficient.

On Tuesday morning, the Senate passed a $95.3 billion package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan that excluded border-policy changes.
