AG Brnovich calls on Biden to fix the border since ‘he has a lot of authority’ at the border

Published

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich blasted President Biden over the border crisis on Fox News’ Hannity Thursday. Brnovich even accused Biden of “violating his oath” to protect America.

“Well, clearly, he is violating his oath to protect the Republican form of government in the United States. Arguably, I’m sure there are some folks that think this is the equivalent of an invasion” Brnovich told host Sean Hannity. “We are doing what we can legally, but when it comes to aiding and abetting, you know, the president has a lot of authority when it comes to the border. This is what he is constitutionally charged to do. He does not have the authority to mandate vaccines, but he does have the authority to enforce our laws, especially at the border.”

Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbott held a press conference this week to beg Biden for an emergency order as a result of the border crisis. In addition, Abbott asked for the favor from the president multiple times. But still, Biden didn’t comply.

However Biden agreed that the border is out of control. He said so in an impromptu question and answer session with a reporter. He promised the reporter he would “get it under control.”

Now according to their most recent report, Customs and Border Protection encountered over 208,000 migrants at the southern border.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
