With the Republicans controlling the House of Representatives after the midterms, many are calling for the impeachment or removal of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for failures in handling the southern border issues.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Chris Magnus resigned this weekend and members of the GOP are requesting Mayorkas do the same. Rep. Andy Biggs even narrated a film depicting the “Alien Invasion” as it is called, of the southern border.
“While Joe Biden serves as the figurehead for his administration, much of the administration’s immigration policy is spearheaded by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas,” Biggs said in the film. “He has deliberately dismantled the nation’s border and immigration policies, and it’s a threat to the sovereignty and security of our nation.”
Make no mistake, Biden could easily put the brakes on this record-setting border disaster today if he wanted to.
He just doesn’t want to.

This week Mayorkas was challenged by North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop during a hearing where the Homeland Security Secretary doubled down on prior comments about a secure border.
“Secretary Mayorkas, do you continue to maintain that the border is secure?” Bishop asked “Yes, and we are working day in and day out to enhance security, congressman,” Mayorkas responded.
There is DISASTER at our border and our Biden Administration has failed. Dereliction of duty. Our President has not even visited the southern border.

“What I would say is that we see significant criminal threats coming from south of the border — whether it’s guns, drugs, money, violence,” Bishop clapped back.
Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas believes Magnus stepping down this week was to protect more Democrat organization leaders from being brought forward for investigation. Cruz called for Mayorkas’ job when he told Fox:
NEW: Thermal drone video from our team in Eagle Pass, TX shows a large group of migrants crossing illegally into private property early this morning.
Per CBP source, there have been over 1,400 illegal crossings in the Del Rio sector in the last 24 hours & 69,000 since 10/1. pic.twitter.com/N1FjKVVuDa

“The Biden administration found their fall guy for the chaos at the border. Responsibility for the border crisis lies with Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and real accountability starts with Mayorkas being impeached. Every moment the border continues to remain open only heightens the present humanitarian and national security crisis.”
The ongoing crisis at the border is highlighted by its record-breaking statistics, where more than 2.3 million migrant encounters in the fiscal year 2022 are on top of the more than 1.7 million encounters in 2021.
