GOP Senators Oppose Impeaching DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas?!?

( – Some Republican US Senators oppose impeaching President Joe Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, for failing to prevent the illegal immigration crisis at the Southern Border.

Nearly 6 million illegals, among them over 1 million gotaways, have entered the United States on Biden and Mayorkas’ watch, estimates show based on Customs and Border Protection data.

The GOP seems set to initiate Mayorkas’ impeachment after it retook the US House of Representatives in last month’s midterms.

However, at least two Republican US Senators – Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine – appear to be against impeaching the head of Biden’s Department of Homeland Security, Breitbart News reported.

“Someone has to commit a high crime or misdemeanor for that to be a valid inquiry. I haven’t seen any accusation of that nature whatsoever,” Romney told Politico.

“There are a lot of things I disagree with [Mayorkas about]… but that doesn’t rise to impeachment,” the GOP senator added.

At the same time, Maine US Senator Susan Collins, an ally of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, sought to dismiss the question of whether Mayorkas should be impeached.

“That’s not something I’ve heard discussed over here,” she responded when asked about the prospects of a potential impeachment.

Another Republican US Senator, John Thune of South Dakota, expressed caution by saying Mayorkas’ open border policy should be investigated before impeachment could be initiated.

“I think there is a legitimate need for oversight … but, I mean, I think it needs to be focused on some specific areas,” said Thune, the second highest ranking GOP senator.

Unlike Romney and Collins, other Republican senators such as Ted Cruz of Texas and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina have reacted strongly to the consistent failure of Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security to secure the Southern Border and stem the migrant influx.

In a letter that Cruz and Graham sent to Mayorkas in October, they accused him of “a gross dereliction of duty and a violation of your oath of office.”

They argued his failure to stop the illegals’ inflow was sufficient grounds for impeachment.

“This is gross dereliction of duty and, if not corrected swiftly, could provide grounds for impeachment,” Cruz and Graham declared.

The highest-ranking Republican in the House, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who is expected to become the new Speaker, has pushed for Mayorkas’ impeachment.

“If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate every order, every action, and every failure, and determine whether we can begin an impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy said last month.

Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security is refusing to resign and has blamed the open border on what he says is America’s “broken immigration system.”
