On Sunday, the Republican-led House introduced two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his failure to enforce border law.

According to the Daily Wire, the first article accused Mayorkas of “willfully and systemically” refusing to comply with federal immigration laws. The second article accused the Homeland Department chief of breaching the public trust by making false statements and purposefully obstructing lawful oversight of his department.

“Throughout his tenure as secretary of Homeland Security, Mayorkas has repeatedly violated laws enacted by Congress regarding immigration and border security,” article 1 reads. “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. His refusal to obey the laws is not only an offense against the separation of powers in the Constitution of the United States, it also threatens our national security.”

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) said that the House had to begin the impeachment process because all efforts to hold Mayorkas accountable have been exhausted.

“Having exhausted all other options to hold Secretary Mayorkas accountable, it is unmistakably clear that Congress must exercise its constitutional duty and impeach him,” Greene Wrote on X.

The Department of Homeland Security fired back in a memo to reporters, arguing that Mayorkas has done his job. The

“This markup is just more of the same political games from House Homeland Security Committee (CHS) Republicans. They don’t want to fix the problem; they want to campaign on it,” the memo reads. “That’s why they have undermined efforts to achieve bipartisan solutions and ignored the facts, legal scholars and experts, and even the Constitution itself in their quest to baselessly impeach Secretary Mayorkas This farce of an impeachment is a distraction from other vital national security priorities and the work Congress should be doing to actually fix our broken immigration laws.”

House Speaker Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) previously revealed that the House would move quickly to impeach Mayorkas should one or both articles pass through the House Homeland Security Committee. Committee members are scheduled to meet on Tuesday morning to consider the articles.
