( – This week, the House of Representatives is poised to deliberate on a resolution seeking the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. The initiative, spearheaded by Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia, is part of the agenda for the week’s congressional meetings, which also include crucial discussions on government funding.

The proposed resolution against Secretary Mayorkas is based on allegations of deliberately permitting unauthorized border crossings, an act Greene interprets as a failure to defend the United States against what she terms an “invasion.” Additionally, Greene charges Mayorkas with not complying with the Secure Fence Act of 2006. This law mandates absolute control over the border, defining it as secure only if it prevents all unauthorized entries of people and contraband into the country.

The resolution, categorized as ‘privileged,’ necessitates prompt consideration by the House. This move by Greene reignites a topic that had subsided among House Republicans, who are divided over the extent of their impeachment powers.

Secretary Mayorkas has countered these allegations, emphasizing the impracticality of the standards set by the Secure Fence Act. He has noted that, under the strict criteria of the Act, no administration has ever achieved complete operational control of the border. Mayorkas defended his position in a congressional hearing in July, outlining the challenges and historical context of border control efforts.

This impeachment initiative by Representative Greene marks a significant moment in the ongoing debate over border security and immigration policy, bringing these issues back into the forefront of legislative discussions.
