Congressman Posey Votes to Impeach Secretary Mayorkas
Washington, February 6, 2024
Today, Congressman Posey voted to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for his blatant dereliction of duty regarding the U.S. southern border. Congressman Posey was an original cosponsor of the impeachment legislation.
“Under the Biden Administration and Secretary Mayorkas’ tenure, over 7 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border, as well as an untold number of individuals who have evaded CBP detection,” stated Congressman Posey. “Secretary Mayorkas was also caught remarking that 85% of illegal aliens who are apprehended by CBP have been released into the country, continuing the problematic ‘catch and release’ policy.”
“It’s clear by the growing crisis infiltrating our cities and causing strain on our resources, that Secretary Mayorkas must be removed from office and a major overhaul of our border security policy is required,” Congressman Posey continued.
Congressman Posey has previously introduced articles of impeachment against Secretary Mayorkas for his failure at the southern border, as well as impeachment articles against President Biden for his failed policies that promulgated the border crisis.
