(Congress Report) – A leader within the Republican Party has had enough of the Biden administration’s lack of activity when it comes to dealing with the crisis unfolding along the southern border and is now calling for those who are sitting idly by while thousands of illegal aliens flood into the country — posing a severe risk to our national security — to be held accountable for not exercising their authority to handle this mess and put a stop to it.
Pete Partoll of The Western Journal wrote, “At 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Biden allowed the Trump-era Title 42 immigration restrictions to expire, opening the floodgates for a surge of illegal immigrants who no longer face the risk of being summarily deported.”
“Now, chaos reigns in communities across the country as state, local and federal authorities struggle to deal with the historic influx of migrants. Meanwhile, many are starting to ask who should be held responsible for the fiasco,” he continued. “One high-ranking GOP congressman has the answer. On Friday, Breitbart reported that House Majority Whip Tom Emmer of Minnesota is calling for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to be impeached.”
Emmer stated that what’s happening at the southern border is the “greatest malfeasance” before going on to make the call for Mayorkas being booted from his office.
“It’s not a failure to act — it’s an intentional failure to act. Mayorkas should be impeached,” Emmer went on to say during an interview.
Emmer noted the open-door policies of both Mayorkas and Biden are putting Americans and those who are attempting to cross into the country, in severe danger.
“They talk about being humane. Children are disappearing. People are getting killed,” he remarked. “You’ve got 80 people that have come across the southern border that are on the terrorist watch list.”
“If you look at the actual law and the precedent that’s been set — and forget about the phony impeachment stuff that the Democrats have been doing for political stunts — this one’s a real, real issue,” Emmer commented during the conversation.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, revealed that he would be taking a long look at the possibility of impeaching Mayorkas.
“The one thing I’ve always said is we’re not like Democrats; we don’t do impeachment just for political purposes,” McCarthy asserted in a chat with Breitbart.
“But if something rises to that occasion — that’s why we will do all the homework on what has transpired down here and if that reaches to an impeachment inquiry, we’ll follow through with that,” he declared.
Mayorkas has essentially refused to do his duty as the Secretary of Homeland Security to protect American citizens from harm by not enforcing immigration laws and not seeing through the completion of a border wall that would reduce the number of illegal aliens getting into the United States dramatically.
We have terrorists getting into this country who are determined to cause death and destruction, but the administration does nothing. Why? Because they are trying to play games with the demographics in this country in order to set themselves up to win future elections.
