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.

Mexican railway forced to suspend trains after numerous deaths from migrants jumping on board
A railway was forced to temporarily suspend train runs in northern Mexico due to the dangers and injuries occurring from numerous migrants attempting to climb aboard its freight cars.
The Mexican railway Ferromex said it had to halt 60 trains carrying cargo that would fill a whopping 1,800 tractor trailers due to the at least “half-dozen regrettable cases of injuries or deaths” of migrants jumping on the freight cars, the company said in a statement. Many migrants even hopped on moving freight cars “despite the grave danger that represents.”
International trade will be affected by the halt, and the impact of the train stoppage will be “very important,” said Ana Bertha Gutiérrez, the international trade coordinator for the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness.
The Associated Press reports:
The company said there were about 1,500 people gathered at a rail yard in the city of Torreon, in the northern border state of Coahuila. The company also reported about 800 migrants waiting at the freight yards in Irapuato, in the north-central state of Guanajuato.
About 1,000 people were reported to be riding freight cars on the train line that connects the city of Chihuahua and the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez.
Gutiérrez noted the impact could be felt in industrial states like Nuevo Leon, Baja California and Chihuahua, given their links to the U.S. market.
Migrants have long used the trains, known collectively as “The Beast,” to hitch rides from as far south as Oaxaca state to the U.S. border. About a decade ago, the Mexican government briefly staged raids on the trains to discourage the practice, but later largely abandoned the effort, the Associated Press added.
