“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.

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas
On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.
At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.
The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”
In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.
“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”
He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.
The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.
“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
