The Biden Department of Homeland Security has begun prepping for a potential impeachment battle over HHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
“The Department of Homeland Security has retained outside counsel to help ensure the Department’s vital mission is not interrupted by the unprecedented, unjustified, and partisan impeachment efforts by some Members of Congress, who have already taken steps to initiate proceedings,” a Homeland Security spokesperson told CNN.
“DHS will continue prioritizing its work to protect our country from terrorism, respond to natural disasters, and secure our borders while responding appropriately to the over 70 Congressional committees and subcommittees that have oversight of DHS,” the spokesperson added.
HHS was correct to note that there have been burgeoning “impeachment efforts” against Mayorkas:
Impeach Secretary Mayorkas. Deport every illegal alien in our country. Finish the Wall.#SOTU

Fentanyl is killing the American people at record rates.
Let’s acknowledge where this fentanyl originates: the southern border.
Impeach Mayorkas, secure the border.

Proud to support and join @RepAndyBiggsAZ in the fight to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas.
Mayorkas’ open border policies aren’t just dangerous—they’re deliberate.
It’s time for Congress to remove him from office. https://t.co/SfgscEjBP3

Outstanding discussion today at @Heritage.
Secretary Mayorkas must be impeached.

But HHS was not correct to call the efforts “unprecedented, unjustified, and partisan,” according to Republicans.
For one thing, Democrats previously impeached former President Donald Trump twice, both times for flimsy reasons that led to no conviction. Note also that under his administration, the border was secure and border crossings fell to a record low rate.
Under this administration and under Mayorkas, more specifically, the border has been completely overrun, with 100,0000+ illegal aliens and so-called “migrants” crossing into the U.S. in any given month, including January:
BREAKING BORDER NUMBERS: There were 156,274 illegal border encounters in January.
This January is WORSE than last January. In fact, it’s the worst January since 2001.
Not only that, there have now been 23 straight of encounters above 150,000 for the first time in history.

So many migrants are flooding border communities that said communities have been forced to ship the illegals to northern “utopias” like New York City.
This, in turn, has greatly strained NYC’s resources, as the city has had to convert hotel after hotel into shelters for these hordes of migrants, including single migrant men.
Yet Democrats, including NYC Mayor Eric Adams, remain loyally supportive of the administration, despite its clear-cut failure to secure the border.
As for the Border Patrol agents who actually have to deal with all the hordes of migrants firsthand, they staunchly oppose this administration’s policies.
“Today, thousands of illegal aliens will crash the border and either escape or be released into a community near you. Most aren’t properly vetted. They will be ‘vetted’ based on their actions and behaviors in your community. And if they commit another crime it’s likely the kid gloves will come out and they’ll be coddled and protected. It’s insanity. Think about it,” the official U.S. Border Patrol union tweeted Saturday.

Perhaps someone should remind Mayorkas that HE is in charge of DHS. HE makes the policies that undercut law enforcement. HE actively resists enforcing our laws. HE goes along with falsely labeling BP agents criminals.
But as expected, he blames others for his pathetic failures.

According to CNN’s anonymous sources, the specific law firm that’s been recruited by the Department of Homeland Security is known as Debevoise & Plimpton.
“While the Department of Homeland Security Office of General Counsel has various lawyers to deal with matters, including immigration and cybersecurity, the outside firm is being brought in on a government contract and only be utilized to the extent it is needed throughout the process,” CNN reported, citing one of these sources.
Whether the law firm will be able to prevent the hell awaiting Mayorkas remains to be seen. What’s known is that “House Republicans are really starting to build a case against Alejandro Mayorkas, the Homeland Security Secretary which could serve as the basis for potential impeachment proceedings,” as reported by CNN last month.
In addition, a total of three committees have thus far vowed to hold hearings on the border crisis, including the House Judiciary Committee, the House Oversight Committee, and the House Homeland Security Committee.
“So clearly, this is not just an idea limited to the fringe wing of the party. It is something that is really gaining steam with the mainstream of the GOP. And in fact, speaker Kevin McCarthy is really leaving the door open to an impeachment inquiry. Just take a listen to what he told reporters moments ago,” CNN’s Melanie Zanona lamented.
Yep, the plans to impeach are real … and they’re spectacular!
