Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has called on Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas to resign. If he does not, the future Speaker announced, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives will investigate every order the secretary has ever given in preparation of an impeachment inquiry.
McCarthy traveled to El Paso, TX, Tuesday, Nov. 22, where he joined fellow Republicans to put Mayorkas on notice. “Together we bear witness to the worst border crisis in the US history,” he said, detailing the more than four million illegal border crossings since President Joe Biden took office. “Now, that Title 42 may end, we’re bracing for a tsunami. People talk about 18,000 a day. That would mean 13 million more illegal crossings for the rest of the term of Joe Biden, if nothing changes,” McCarthy continued. “Just last week, Secretary Mayorkas testified under oath that, yes, the border is secure.”
McCarthy and those who followed talked of the unprecedented rise in illegal immigration and drug smuggling, and the effects they have had on Americans in general, from increased crime to higher rates of fentanyl overdose, as well as what the situation does to the agents on the border. “In the last ten days, three Border Patrol agents have committed suicide, a total of 14 this year,” the presumptive Speaker said.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) explained that there were more known crossings by people on the terrorist watchlist this past October alone than in all of 2017, 2018, and 2019 combined. “Across the river sit some of the most capable, best equipped, best funded, and most ruthless and dangerous organizations in the world, the cartels,” Crenshaw said. “This is more than an immigration crisis,” he continued. “It is a national security crisis.”
Each lawmaker called on the secretary to step down and affirmed the promise to act if he refuses. “If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign,” McCarthy declared, “House Republicans will investigate every order, every action, and every failure with – it will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry.”
