Eight House Republicans joined with Democrats to kill a vote to impeach Joe Biden’s Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, who has overseen the largest ground invasion of the United States in the nation’s history by ordering a mass stand down along America’s southern border, where millions of illegal aliens from all over the world have poured into the US since Biden and Mayorkas were installed.
The failure to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas is just the latest letdown from House Republicans who, as a caucus, were elected in 2022 to rein in the Biden Administration but have repeatedly refused to do so. It comes as newly-elected Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) has already begun to face criticism from conservatives over his seeming inability to pull his party together and fight back against radical Democrats, and for collaborating with them to avert a government shutdown without slashing federal spending.
To block the impeachment, eight House Republicans voted with Democrats:
The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted 209-201 to kill the bill to bring Alejandro Mayorkas up for impeachment, which was introduced by Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after a human smuggler operating thanks to Mayorkas’s open borders policies killed two of her constituents in an automobile collision.
In her impeachment resolution, Rep. Greene accused Mayorkas of “willful admittance of border crossers, terrorist human traffickers, drugs, and other contraband,” into the United States, calling his conduct “incompatible with the laws” of the nation.
Nevertheless, Republicans Darrell Issa of California, Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, Ken Buck of Colorado, Cliff Bentz of Oregon, Mike Turner of Ohio, Patrick McHenry of North Carolina, Tom McClintock of California, and John Duarte of California, all voted to keep Mayorkas in power and America’s southern border wide open.
All of those mentioned have been staunch allies of ex-speaker Kevin McCarthy, and McHenry briefly served as “interim speaker” after McCarthy’s ouster.
It’s worth noting that McHenry and the GOP establishment attempted to delay a vote for a permanent Speaker of the House and to empower the interim speaker with broad powers, in blatant violation of the US Constitution.
