(The Center Square) – House Speaker Mike Johnson said in a letter Friday that the House will soon vote to make Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas the second Cabinet secretary in history to be impeached.
“When we return next week, by necessity, the House Homeland Security Committee will move forward with Articles of Impeachment against Secretary Mayorkas,” Johnson wrote. “A vote on the floor will be held as soon as possible thereafter.”
Johnson also said the Senate’s draft border and supplemental spending measure was “dead on arrival” in the House if rumors about its contents are true. The Senate proposal hasn’t been released.
The House Speaker said the House GOP’s immigration bill, HR 2, was the way forward.
“Since the day I became Speaker, I have assured our Senate colleagues the House would not accept any counterproposal if it would not actually solve the problems that have been created by the administration’s subversive policies,” he wrote.
He also called on President Joe Biden to take immediate action.
“Many of our constituents have asked an important question ‘what is the point of negotiating new laws with an administration that will not enforce the laws already on the books,” Johnson wrote. “If President Biden wants us to believe he is serious about protecting our national sovereignty, he needs to demonstrate his good faith by taking immediate actions to secure it. He should sign an order right now to end the mass release of illegals and dangerous persons into our country.”
