GOP-Led House Passes Articles of Impeachment Against Mayorkas on Second Attempt

by Nicholas Ballasy


The GOP-led House passed an impeachment resolution against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday night 214-213, marking the first time a sitting cabinet secretary has been impeached. 

Under the resolution, Mayorkas faces two articles of impeachment over his handling of border security and illegal immigration. The articles are related to a “breach of trust” and a “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law.”

Last week, the first vote on the resolution took place after nearly 3 hours of debate on the House floor but it failed to pass 216-214. 

Rep. Blake Moore, R-Utah, had changed his vote from yes to no so the resolution would be able to be reconsidered.
