House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) recently revealed his intent to “absolutely” bring articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the crisis at the southern border.

During a recent appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Green said his committee has investigated Mayorkas for months, with such a probe reaching its conclusion.
Green said that the committee will hold “three or four hearings in January” and will modify the impeachment articles that have already been brought against Mayorkas by several House GOP lawmakers.
Green explained that he’s leading the fight to impeach Mayorkas because the Homeland Security secretary is “derelict in his duty, he’s broken the laws of the United States that have passed Congress, he’s lied to Congress. This guy needs to go.”
Green added that the number of illegal immigrants deported under Mayorkas has significantly decreased while record numbers of illegal immigrants pour right across the southern border.
“It shows their intent is basically to fundamentally change the population of the United States and, I believe, to empower the Democrat Party into perpetuity,” the Tennessee congressman added.
Among those who have already introduced articles of impeachment against Mayorkas is Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
In November 2023, Greene introduced and later reintroduced articles of impeachment against the Homeland Security secretary.
Speaking on the House floor during the reintroduction of her impeachment articles, Greene said Mayorkas has “failed to maintain operational control of the border,” citing the high levels of illegal immigrants that have entered the U.S. since 2021.
“Mayorkas has made it easier for illegal aliens and drugs to enter the United States, endangering American citizens and has made it harder for CBP (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) to expel such threats,” the Georgia congresswoman added.
Under the Biden administration, more than 13 million illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border into America. Such an eyebrow-raising figure is larger than the population of every state in the union except four: Florida, Texas, California and New York.
The research director for the Center for Immigration Studies, Steven Camarota, said, “I think the number is around, now, probably close to 13 million.”
