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.

House proposes Resolution to remove VP Kamala Harris from position as border czar
It has been two entire years since President Joe Biden named his Vice President Kamala Harris as ‘border czar.’ Her responsibilities included heading up solutions for our border crisis. However, House Republicans say her dismal performance should get her fired from the role; a role she seems to care very little about.
“Kamala Harris has done nothing to ‘address the root cause of migration’ or stop the influx of illegal immigrants coming across our border daily. She continues to sit by as the number of illegal immigrants coming across our border skyrockets, fentanyl deaths explode, and CBP officers are left to fend for themselves. She has completely betrayed the American people by blatantly disregarding her duties as Border Czar,” Republican Texas Representative Ronny Jackson told the Daily Caller before introducing his resolution.
On Friday, Jackson reintroduced a resolution which unequivocally calls for Vice President Kamala Harris to be removed from her position as border czar. “Enough is enough! President Biden must remove Kamala Harris and replace her with someone who will put Americans first and stop the crisis at our southern border. Politics should never compromise our national security. We need change now!,” Jackson added.
The resolution begins:
Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Vice President Kamala Harris should be removed from her position as the head of the Biden administration’s strategy to address the root causes of migration.
The resolution concludes:
In February, Jackson also introduced a bill requiring executive branch officials tasked with immigration policy to visit the southern border and issue reports about conditions.
