Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) announced Wednesday that she will introduce a bill to censure President Biden “for his complete dereliction of duty on our nation’s border crisis.”

She is joined by 23 colleagues in the House. They include Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Dan Bishop (R-NC), Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Pat Fallon (R-TX), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Bob Good (R-VA), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Morgan Griffith (R-VA), Diana Harshbarger (R-TN), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ronny Jackson (R-TX), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Alex Mooney (R-WV), Barry Moore (R-AL), Troy Nehls (R-TX), Ralph Norman (R-SC), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Bill Posey (R-FL), Lance Gooden (R-TX), Chip Roy (R-TX), and Randy Weber (R-TX).

These GOP lawmakers are also calling for the removal of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Instead, they would like to see him replaced “with leadership that will prioritize the security of the United States and faithfully enforce the laws enacted by Congress.”

“My censure bill holds President Biden accountable for his actions—or lack thereof—at the border,” Boebert said during a press conference. “Biden has refused to enforce the laws securing our border, he has refused to visit our border, his border czar Kamala has refused to visit the border, and his Secretary of Homeland Security is lying to the American people by saying that our border is closed.”

Since Boebert made the announcement, the White House announced that Vice President Harris will visit the border this Friday. Mayorkas will accompany her to El Paso, Texas.

In fact, Biden’s policy has stirred up historic immigration data. As Boebert says, “the numbers speak for themselves.” The last two months in particular have seen a massive increase of migrants at the border.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.

Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”

“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.

“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.

Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”

Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”

“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”

In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”

Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”
