Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced a resolution to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, accusing him of failing to protect the U.S. from an “invasion” of “border crossers.”
The resolution accuses Mayorkas of violating his duty to secure the border and protect the country from “invasion,” as well as violating the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
“As Secretary of the Department of Homeland Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, has violated his oath to uphold this constitutional duty by allowing the invasion of approximately 10,000,000 illegals across our borders,” the resolution reads. (Trending: Donald Trump Gets Great News)

“The ongoing invasion at our southern border is a direct national security threat against the States and against the citizens therein.”
“Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, in his inability to enforce the law, has engaged in a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with his duties as a civil officer of the United States,” it adds.
Mayorkas pushed back on these claims, stating that the standard set in the Secure Fence Act is impossible to achieve.
“The Secure Fence Act, specifically the statute, defines operational control as not having one individual cross the border illegally,” Mayorkas said.
“Under that statutory definition, no administration has achieved operational control.”
The Department of Homeland Security called the push to impeach Mayorkas “baseless” and emphasized that he has been working to keep Americans safe.
