( – The Republican-majority House of Representatives delivered impeachment charges against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the Democrat-majority Senate over the Biden Cabinet member’s management of the illegal immigration crisis.

The appointed House managers, responsible for prosecuting the case, were formally introduced in the Senate chamber. Representative Mark Green (R-TN), the Homeland Security Chairman and leading manager, publicly read the impeachment resolution’s content.

A trial is slated to commence Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET, with senators taking on the role of jurors. Senate President Pro Tempore Patty Murray (D-WA) has been designated to oversee the trial, The Daily Wire reports.

Republican legislators express apprehension that Democrats, who have consistently described the impeachment inquiry as a “political stunt,” will attempt to abbreviate the trial before a verdict on Mayorkas’s conviction or acquittal is reached.

Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has not yet disclosed if there will be attempts to dismiss or postpone the impeachment charges.

“We want to address this issue as expeditiously as possible,” Schumer said, emphasizing that impeachment “should never be used to settle policy disagreements. That sets an awful precedent.”

House Republicans are insisting on a comprehensive trial, according to Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), who also labeled Mayorkas as the “worst” Cabinet secretary in the nation’s history.

A group of forty-three Republican senators have written to Schumer urging the Senate to “uphold its constitutional responsibility to properly adjudicate” the impeachment articles.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) declared his opposition to any effort to dismiss the charges, highlighting that the Senate has never consented to such a course of action in the past.

After an extended period of investigation, the House narrowly approved two impeachment articles against Mayorkas in February.

These articles charge Mayorkas with deliberately and systematically failing to adhere to federal immigration laws and accuse him of making false statements and obstructing lawful oversight of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), thereby “breaching the public trust.”

In response to these allegations, Mayorkas has refuted what he terms “false accusations.”

A DHS spokesperson criticized the House’s successful impeachment vote, stating, “House Republicans will be remembered by history for trampling on the Constitution for political gain rather than working to solve the serious challenges at our border.”

Should the trial proceed fully, a two-thirds majority vote will be necessary for conviction, which could result in Mayorkas’s removal from office. However, this outcome seems improbable, especially since not all Republican senators support the impeachment initiative.
