Dan Crenshaw Pushes New Impeachment

Republican Representative Dan Crenshaw signed in approval for impeachment against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week.

"Today, I signed onto articles of impeachment for Alejandro Mayorkas," reads a statement by Crenshaw's spokesperson.

"His mishandling of the border crisis has led to an undeniable disaster," Crenshaw's spokesperson added.

GOP Members Push For New Impeachment

Republican Representative Pat Fallon of Texas initiated the articles, which accuse Mayorkas of committing high crimes and misdemeanors.

The articles of impeachment have since been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.

"He lied to Congress, absurdly claiming our border is 'secure.' He threw Border Patrol agents under the bus, lying about 'whipping' migrants," Crenshaw said. "He ignored pleas for help from border communities and CBP agents."

"Mayorkas has shown time and time again that he is not qualified to serve," Crenshaw added.

"He has blatantly violated his constitutional oath and duty to secure our nation from hostile threats. It's sheer incompetence at best, or negligence at worst," Crenshaw claimed. "The American people deserve a Homeland Security Secretary who will actually do the job."

This move by House Republicans is not a surprise, as members have threatened similar actions in the past.

"In the articles, Fallon accuses Mayorkas and the DHS under his watch of being in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act by implementing 'catch-and-release directives.' He is further accused of not following the the Secure the Fence Act of 2006 by allowing increased illegal border crossings and lethal drug transportation over the border," reports Washington Examiner.

"This week, President Joe Biden made his first trip to the southern border of his presidency. However, he did not visit the government detention facilities where immigrants are detained and processed after crossing into the country," Washington Examiner reported.
