House GOP Unveils Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Mayorkas, Will Hold House Vote ‘as Soon as Possible’

Published January 29, 2024

Republicans in Congress are finally ready to move against Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

The House Homeland Security Committee is scheduled to meet Tuesday to consider articles of impeachment against Mayorkas for “high crimes and misdemeanors” related to his handling of the crisis at the nation’s southern border.

Rep. Mark Green of Tennessee filed an amendment to the articles on Sunday accusing the secretary of “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” as well as a “breach of public trust.”

“Throughout his tenure as Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro N. Mayorkas has repeatedly violated laws enacted by Congress regarding immigration and border security,” the amendment says.

“In large part because of his unlawful conduct, millions of aliens have illegally entered the United States on an annual basis with many unlawfully remaining in the United States,” it says.

“His refusal to obey the law is not only an offense against the separation of powers in the Constitution of the United States, it also threatens our national security.”

Green’s amendment also accuses Mayorkas of lying to Congress and refusing to enforce the law as millions of illegals continue to enter the country without any effective form of deterrence.

“Alejandro N. Mayorkas knowingly made false statements to Congress that the border is ‘secure,’ that the border is ‘no less secure than it was previously,’ that the border is ‘closed,’ and that DHS has ‘operational control’ of the border,” the second article of impeachment declares.

“These articles lay out a clear, compelling, and irrefutable case for Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ impeachment. He has willfully and systemically refused to comply with immigration laws enacted by Congress,” it says.

The House Homeland Security Committee is taking a crucial step toward impeaching Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week, marking up articles of impeachment that charge the embattled Cabinet chief with high crimes and misdemeanors.

The vote in committee comes as a bipartisan group of senators is putting the finishing touches on a long-awaited border security package, which faces fierce opposition from conservatives in both chambers — as well as former President Trump.

The split-screen is putting a spotlight on the situation on the southern border, which has emerged as a salient issue in the 2024 presidential election and a hot-button debate on Capitol Hill.

The House this week may also consider a bipartisan, bicameral tax deal, which top lawmakers in the House and Senate unveiled earlier this month. The legislation, however, is facing resistance from conservative and moderate Republicans in the lower chamber, setting up another tough stretch for Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.).

House panel marks up Mayorkas impeachment resolution

The House Homeland Security Committee is scheduled to mark up articles of impeachment against Mayorkas on Tuesday at 10 a.m., teeing up a vote in the full chamber on booting the controversial secretary.

The impeachment resolution — which includes two articles — accuses Mayorkas of “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law, based on allegations that the secretary violated immigration laws through Biden immigration policies. It also charges Mayorkas with “breach of trust,” with accusations that he did not carry out his responsibilities, misled Congress and obstructed its investigation.

“These articles lay out a clear, compelling, and irrefutable case for Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ impeachment,” Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.), the chair of the Homeland Security Committee, said in a statement.

Published January 28, 2024

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has “not been doing his constitutional word to protect Americans” and has “abdicated his duty” to protect Texans, and it is time for him to be impeached, Rep. Randy Weber said on Newsmax Sunday, after House Republicans unveiled two articles of impeachment against the secretary.

“He has violated his oath to defend and protect,” the Texas Republican told Newsmax’s “Sunday Report,” predicting that the “crazy left” will say the push to oust Mayorkas is political.

The Republican-controlled House Homeland Security Committee has set a vote for Tuesday on the articles of impeachment, after which they will head to the full House, where speaker Mike Johnson has said a vote will take place as soon as possible.

“The president and the vice president been going around, saying that Republicans are trying to make this open border a campaign issue,” said Weber. “They’ve been doing this for three-plus years and American people are tired of it.

“You know 64% of Americans are saying this is the No. 1 issue so I think you’re going to see this get some traction.”

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 last week to allow federal officials cut razor wire put in place at the border by order of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, but Weber said Sunday Texas has the right of self-defense, as does any state.

“When this country was founded, 13 colonies, which ultimately became the 13 states, created the federal government, not the other way around,” said Weber. “And when they won’t do their job, you better believe it’s up to each individual state to step in and do its job.”

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
