GOP Representative and Republican caucus nominee for House Speaker, Kevin McCarthy of California, is calling on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign.
The call from McCarthy is for Mayorkas to resign his post or face congressional investigations.
Republican Representative Debbie Lesko of Arizona backed up McCarthy’s statements in an appearance on Fox's "Your World."
GOP Calls For Mayorkas To Resign Or Face Investigations
"Congresswoman, so, a defiant Mayorkas. Kevin McCarthy, though, he laid it down pretty hard," Charles Payne, "Your World" fill-in host said. "Now, he was pretty serious. He drew a line in the sand. Where’s this going?"
"Well, I really think that Kevin McCarthy is right," Lesko answered. "And I’m glad that he has given Mayorkas an ultimatum: Either resign, or we’re going to start investigations and see if it leads to impeachment. I personally have signed onto legislation to impeach Mayorkas. Prior to that, I signed on to legislation that he resign."
"And I signed on to letters asking him to resign," Lesko continued. "I’m a member of the Border Security Caucus in the House. And we invited Mayorkas to come to our caucus. And, surprisingly, he did, after we had written them a letter saying he should resign."
Lesko continued, blasting Mayorkas for lying.
"And he keeps on lying," Lesko said. "He keeps on telling us that the border is secure. He said that again the other day in a House hearing. And it’s not secure. Anybody knows that. Even the illegal immigrants know that."
