Pat Fallon filed articles of impeachment against the Secretary of Homeland Security for “serious crimes and misdemeanors” in the House; Mayorkas said days ago that he would be ready for further investigation by House Republicans.
A week ago, the Republican representative of Texas Pat Fallon threatened to present articles of impeachment against Alejandro Mayorkas after Congress was sworn in, days after that warning, the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) faces a resolution for “crimes serious and minor crimes.
According to the resolution, Mayorkas “involved a pattern of conduct incompatible with his duties” in addition to complaining that he has failed to maintain operational control of the border.
“From day one, Secretary Mayorkas’ policies have undermined law enforcement activities on our southern border,” Fallon said in a statement to Fox News last week.
He considered that the official committed “perjury before Congress” regarding the maintenance of operational control of the border.
“Secretary Mayorkas has shown time and time again that he is unfit to lead the Department of Homeland Security,” he added. “His willful actions by him have eroded our immigration system, undermined Border Patrol morale, and endangered American national security. He has broken the law and it is time for him to go,” he added.
The resolution comes at a time when Mayorkas is in Mexico accompanying President Joe Biden at the North American Leaders Summit, where the issue of shared immigration has been discussed and where he will later discuss coordination on transnational crime with the Mexican authorities. . For now, the office of the Secretary of Homeland Security has not offered comment on the resolution.
Mayorkas said Sunday, as President Biden visited the border, that he will not resign over his handling of the border crisis and insisted that he stand ready for further investigation by House Republicans as he continues to carry out his day-to-day responsibilities. .
