President Biden’s decision to remove the Title 42 border barrier, a policy implemented by former President Donald Trump under the guise of combating the coronavirus pandemic, has now sparked pandemonium at the southern border. frontier officials had used Title 42 as one of their last remaining weapons to attempt to manage the influx of illegal migration at the frontier.
As of Thursday, when Title 42 expired, the swift expulsion of illegal immigrants has ground to a halt, and the internet is inundated with photos and videos of the masses pressing against the border. Before Thursday, U.S. border officials had encountered more than five million illegal migrants since Biden took office and reversed the majority of Trump’s immigration and border security policies on his first day in office, according to federal data.
Rep. Pat Fallon (R-Texas) filed the first articles of impeachment against Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of the Department of Homeland Security in January.
“The one thing I’ve always said is we’re not like Democrats; we don’t do impeachment just for political purposes,” McCarthy said. “But if something rises to that occasion — that’s why we will do all the homework on what has transpired down here, and if that reaches to an impeachment inquiry, we’ll follow through with that.”

The House is taking action as human and narcotic smuggling along the U.S.-Mexico border increases once more. House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN), impatient and prompted by recent events, called for the impeachment of Mayorkas on Friday, claiming that his “failure to act” as the chief border official necessitates his removal and urging Congress to act.
In an interview with Breitbart News at his Capitol Hill office, Emmer stated, “he should be impeached” because Mayorkas will not voluntarily resign. …and adding that the overburdened southern frontier represents the “greatest malfeasance” by President Joe Biden’s chief border official.
“They talk about being humane. Children are disappearing. People are getting killed,” Emmer said. “You’ve got 80 people that have come across the southern border that are on the terrorist watch list.”
Emmer addressed the enormous influx of unauthorized immigrants into the United States and the abject failure of federal leadership.
“This, to me, is the greatest malfeasance, and malfeasance is — it’s not a failure to act — it’s an intentional failure to act. Mayorkas should be impeached,” Emmer said. “I think we should be talking seriously about that regardless of what this feckless Senate might want to do.”
Emmer, the third-ranking Republican in the House, also claimed that the Biden administration has “blood on their hands,” similar to what House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said at a press conference the day before, Breitbart News reported.
“Mayorkas is guilty of child abuse, in my opinion, by not vetting the sponsors of the parents, supposedly, or sponsors of these children,” McCaul told reporters within a few minutes of the GOP-led House passing Republicans’ marquee border security bill on Thursday.
The most recent article of impeachment against Mayorkas was filed in February, shortly after the Republicans assumed control of the chamber following the midterm elections. Conservative Brief reports that Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) introduced a new article of impeachment against Mayorkas, accusing him of violating his oath of office and refusing to enforce duly passed immigration laws.

Emmer reiterated his call for the DHS director’s impeachment, arguing that the move is not political, but rather necessary and legal.
“I know that we’re going to have members — much like other constitutional disagreements we’ve had, there’s probably going to be a member who says … who’s a stickler about high crimes and misdemeanors,” Emmer said. “I believe if you look at the actual law and the precedent that’s been set — and forget about the phony impeachment stuff that the Democrats have been doing for political stunts — this one’s a real, real issue. You can see the pictures live every day. You have an administration and an idiot that’s in charge of the border. I don’t know where 85,000 children went.”
“Please,” Emmer said. “It’s time for him to go. He should do the honorable thing and resign. He won’t. Therefore, he should be impeached.
Despite the fact that a federal judge has blocked Vice President Biden from releasing immigrants without a court hearing in recent days, some border states are taking matters into their own hands.
H.B. 20 aims to circumvent Mayorkas agents by designating a unit to “arrest, apprehend, or detain persons unlawfully crossing the Texas-Mexico border,” according to boundary Report.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote Wednesday, “policies allow monstrous gang members, terrorists, human traffickers, drug dealers, and violent criminals into our country and demonstrate that the President is willing to sacrifice American lives for his open border agenda.”
