GOP Rep Chip Roy Calls for Impeachment of Biden’s DHS Chief: ‘Impeaching Mayorkas Is Our Duty’

Texas Republican Rep. Chip Roy is calling for the impeachment of Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief.

Roy argues that it is “our duty” to impeach Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the ongoing crisis at our Southern Border.

In a letter to his House Republican colleagues, Roy said Secretary Mayorkas had “embarked on the purposeful abandonment of the laws of the United States” and needs to be impeached.

“While the world’s attention has been directed toward Ukraine, the border of the United States is more dangerous, broken, and unsecure than ever,” he said.

“It demands our immediate attention and collective call for the impeachment of the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas.

“Impeaching Secretary Mayorkas is our duty,” he told the GOP.

“We should call for it now – despite Democrat control of the House – and make the case for immediate border security better than any speeches we can give or bills we can introduce.”

Rep. Roy’s letter reads in full:

Dear Republican House Colleagues,

While the world’s attention has been directed toward Ukraine, the border of the United States is more dangerous, broken, and unsecure than ever.

It demands our immediate attention and collective call for the impeachment of the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas.

Attached for your consideration is a memorandum making that case. My team & I distributed a draft last October to my Texas colleagues.

It is now updated – including the recent release of both the FY21 ICE report & CBP February numbers – and available to the entire House Republican Conference and public.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Secretary Mayorkas just over one year ago & he subsequently took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” and to “well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office.”

Yet, following the orders of President Biden or acting on his own – he has embarked on the purposeful abandonment of the laws of the United States and the successful policies of the previous administration to secure our borders and protect our people.

His actions have resulted in the death and endangerment of Americans, damage to property and communities across the border, loss of operational control of our border to dangerous cartels imprisoning thousands of migrants sold into human trafficking, and the fueling of deadly drug poisonings of thousands of Americans.

It is most certainly a “high crime or misdemeanor” for a public officer to purposefully endanger Americans while willfully ignoring one’s oath to enforce our laws. Impeaching Secretary Mayorkas is our duty.

We should call for it now – despite Democrat control of the House – and make the case for immediate border security better than any speeches we can give or bills we can introduce.

Sincerely,

Chip Roy

Member of Congress
