Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has been very vocal about the problems at our southern border, as he should be.
As a Texan, he knows the state is being saturated with illegal immigrants that Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas has welcomed with open arms.
More importantly, he knows that Mayorkas has been less than honest with the American people on this front, and now he wants him impeached.
Time to Go
As radical as Mayorkas has been throughout this immigration crisis, it is a wonder that he was able to get a single “yes” vote from Republicans.
The Senate’s job is to properly vet these individuals to ensure they do the job they are put in place to do.
Mayorkas has done the exact opposite of what a Homeland boss is supposed to do from Day One, but nobody saw through this ruse?
Crenshaw is one of the more patient and even-tempered members of Congress, so when he uses terms like “deliberate dereliction of constitutional duty,” it should open some eyes.
To that point. Crenshaw stated, “So yeah, I don’t just say that. I don’t use that term loosely. I don’t think it’s a good thing to do.
“I think some people just scream impeachment every time a politician does something they don’t like.
“I’m not doing that here. I think there’s very clear examples of deliberate dereliction of constitutional duty on the part of the secretary of Homeland Security … to protect this country.
“It actually has very little to do with the cancellation of the border wall contracts. I think that’s infuriating, but the real dereliction of duty is simply refusal to actually enforce the laws of our country.
“Those laws might be our asylum process laws. Those laws might be internal enforcement inside where deportations are necessary. Those laws might be simply crossing the border illegally.
“And the only action that DHS has taken has been against those border agents trying to do their job on horseback, trying to stop people from rushing the border.
“So, this is very deliberate, and the intent matters when you’re accusing somebody of what is effectively a crime, and in this case, I think he deserves impeachment, absolutely.”
He failed to mention how many times Mayorkas has lied, not to mention the fact he still has not released the investigation results into the border agents he mentioned above.
He is right, however… Mayorkas needs to go, and I would suspect that when Republicans get Congress back, there is going to be some serious house cleaning in the Biden administration.
