Impeach Alejandro Mayorkas Now!

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas swore an oath to defend and secure the United States of America, and to uphold the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution tasks the executive branch – among whose officers is the Secretary of Homeland Security – with ensuring that the laws of the United States are faithfully executed.

But Secretary Mayorkas has failed to uphold his oath of office. Instead, he has “presided over a reckless abandonment of border security and immigration enforcement, at the expense of the Constitution and the security of the United States,” in the words of H.Res. 89. His continued failure to maintain operational control of the border of the United States and his decision to release millions of illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States are violations of his oath of office.

The Immigration and Nationality Act requires the U.S. Government “to detain inadmissible aliens arriving into the United States or aliens who are present in the United States without inspection while such aliens are processed under expedited removal or placed in removal proceedings.” The law is quite specific. It does not allow the Secretary of Homeland Security to release into the interior of the United States those inadmissible aliens. Yet that is exactly what Secretary Mayorkas has ordered, in clear violation of the law.

As a direct result of Secretary Mayorkas’ actions and policies – that is, as the direct result of his failure to uphold his oath of office – our southern border is not secure, and our country is less safe than it was when he took office. Consequently, he warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.
