House panel approves impeachment articles against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas | 31 Jan 2024 | A Republican-led House panel approved articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas early Wednesday for having "willfully and systematically" flouted federal immigration laws and breached the public trust. The House Homeland Security Committee voted 18-15 along party lines for the two articles of impeachment, affirming that Mayorkas failed to detain migrants crossing the border before deciding whether to grant asylum. The articles also state that the secretary ignored records requests from the committee and misled Congress about having "operational control" of the US border and maintaining that it is "secure."
