Mayorkas Impeachment Articles Headed for Floor Vote After Rules Committee Votes to Advance

The House Rules Committee approved both articles of impeachment Republican lawmakers filed against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, teeing up a historic House floor vote that could happen as soon as Tuesday.

The passage through the committee marked the final hurdle that the House GOP had to clear to reach a floor vote following a year of hearings that targeted Mayorkas’s handling of the border crisis.

“I take no pleasure in our actions today, but Secretary Mayorkas’s actions — both in his intentional refusal to enforce all laws and abandoning the confidence of Americans — require us to act,” said House Rules Chairman Tom Cole (R-OK). “Secretary Mayorkas has refused to uphold his oath of office. If he will not do so — his duty — then unfortunately the House must do its constitutional duty.”

The 12-member panel voted along party lines 8-4 on H.R. 863 after four hours of debate. The articles charge Mayorkas with willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law and a breach of the public trust.

“[Mayorkas] knows what the laws are, and he has created systems to subvert those laws,” House Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) testified before the rules panel Monday afternoon, referencing the Biden administration’s expanded parole programs for immigrants.
