GOP Rep Follows Through on Promise, Files Articles of Impeachment against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

Republican Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) has followed through on his promise and filed impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The articles of impeachment against Mayorkas were introduced by Fallon on Monday and have been referred to the GOP-led House Judiciary Committee.

Fallon said:

“Since day one, Secretary Mayorkas’ policies have undermined law enforcement activities at our southern border.

“From perjuring himself before Congress about maintaining operational control of the border to the infamous ‘whip-gate’ slander against our border patrol agents, Secretary Mayorkas has proven time and time again that he is unfit to lead the Department of Homeland Security.

“His willful actions have eroded our immigration system, undermined border patrol morale, and jeopardized American national security.

“He has violated the law and it is time for him to go.”

Fallon’s first article says Mayorka failed to faithfully execute the “Secure the Fence Act of 2006. That mandates the secretary of Homeland Security ‘maintain operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders of the United States.’”

The second article claims Mayorkas was “in violation of his constitutional oath when he willfully provided perjurious, false, and misleading testimony to Congress.”

The third article claims Mayorkas “publicly and falsely slandered” border agents by accusing them of whipping Haitian migrants.

“The 511-page report by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Personal Responsibility found ‘no evidence that Border Patrol agents involved in this incident struck, intentionally or otherwise, any migrant with their reins,’” Fallon said.

“Secretary Mayorkas slandered his own Border Patrol agents and TXDPS Troopers involved in this incident, contributing to a further decrease in already-low morale among agents.”
