Washington, D.C. – Today, the MAGA Republican-led House Homeland Security Committee released fanciful articles of impeachment for Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas. In response, Congressional Integrity Project executive director, Kyle Herrig, issued the following statement:

“This is an outrageous and unconstitutional attempt to undermine the work of Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration. Impeachment has never been used and was never intended to be used over policy differences – but this isn’t actually about any differences in policy or trying to solve the crisis at the border. This impeachment is all about politics and helping Trump take back the White House in 2024.

“We’re not even putting words in their mouths. Trump and his insurrectionist crony Marjorie Taylor Greene demanded this bogus impeachment and are bragging about how they blocked a bipartisan deal, all so Trump could continue campaigning on a crisis rather than actually solving it. This is a nakedly partisan political stunt from a damaged, disgraced, four time indicted former president who is desperate to harm Joe Biden.

“Let us be clear – this bogus impeachment is as wrong as it is immoral and it will blow up in their faces. And if Republicans from swing districts and especially districts Biden won in 2020 think they can quietly support this nonsense without repercussions, they are as delusional as Donald Trump.”
