The idea of impeaching Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is gaining more steam among Republicans in purple districts as the chaos at the southern border continues to unfold.
Several House GOP lawmakers in swing districts threw their support behind impeaching Mayorkas over the exacerbated border crisis that saw Title 42 expire last week.
California Republican Rep. Mike Garcia told Punchbowl News that he supports impeaching Mayorkas, arguing that the DHS secretary is “going out of his way to allow this invasion on our southern border.”
Chip Roy appeared on Fox News and slammed Mayorkas even further:
FOX News reported:
“When the Joker is acting like the Joker, it’s one thing,” Garcia said on Friday. “But when Batman — who’s supposed to be protecting you — starts acting like the Joker, you’ve got to do something about it.”
Garcia’s district went for President Biden in the 2020 election and is a target district for Democrats to flip blue.
Fellow California Rep. John Duarte — one of two Republicans who didn’t back the GOP border bill — said Mayorkas’ “failures are obvious” and is considering impeachment.
“At some point, if we believe there is a case there, I’ll probably stick with the party,” Duarte said.
Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., also threw her support behind impeaching Mayorkas, telling Punchbowl News an impeachment of the DHS secretary would help vulnerable GOP members.
Ben Bergquam, the host of Law and Border for Real America’s Voice, slammed the Democrat policies of inviting more troubled people into our country after there are so many problems with homelessness and needing to be dependent on the government with the open borders. The following video shows the real problem that Democrats are making so much worse.
