TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — In a letter to U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Attorney General Ashley Moody is urging Congress to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. According to Moody, the situation at the border is getting worse because of Mayorkas’s actions.
“As a federal court ruled in our case, Biden and Mayorkas have turned the U.S. Southwest Border into nothing more than a ‘speedbump.’ The court highlighted several other abject failures by DHS, led by Mayorkas,” Moody wrote.
“If he [Mayorkas] is unwilling to do the patriotic thing and resign his position, then Congress must initiate impeachment proceedings to get rid of this threat to our national security,” Moody added.
The letter outlines the ongoing border crisis and the successful Florida lawsuit against DHS over unlawful policies that incentivize large groups of inadmissible immigrants to attempt to enter the country illegally.
Since Biden took office, there have been more than 4.5 million immigrant encounters at the Southwest Border. Customs and Border Protection estimates the Biden Administration allowed 1.2 million illegal aliens to evade authorities and escape into the interior of the United States.
