WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) introduced articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Higgins said he introduced the articles for because Mayorkas’ failure to secure the southern border, dereliction of duty and wanton disregard for his Constitutional oath.
The two articles span fifteen pages. judiciously outlining what Higgins calls Secretary Mayorkas’ deliberate actions to transition DHS away from actual enforcement of law, disintegrate the operational control of our southern border and cede U.S. sovereignty to criminal cartels. Further, as to Higgins, the articles clearly document Secretary Mayorkas’ abuse of Title 8 authority, which resulted in the unlawful release of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants into the United States interior.
“The Founders intended that impeachment of a senior executive should require clear evidence of intentional, repeated unconstitutional or illegal actions that bring measurable injury to our Republic,” said Congressman Higgins. “Secretary Mayorkas has long ago crossed that threshold. His arrogant disregard for the security and sanctity of the American people has been shocking to behold. I think that in my 62 years, I’ve never met a more pompous, insidious man. I prepared the foundational posit of these articles long ago, yet I’ve been prayerful that impeachment might not be required. I’ve given him fair warning to resign his position. Now, he shall reap what he hath sown.”
