BREAKING: House Homeland Security Committee Holds Final Impeachment Hearing For Alejandro Mayorkas

The House Homeland Security Committee recently convened its final impeachment hearing for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. The focus of this hearing was to scrutinize the alleged failures of President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas’ open border policies and their impact on the United States.

The Accusations Against Secretary Mayorkas

The committee, during its proceedings, accused Secretary Mayorkas of disregarding court orders and laws passed by Congress. The allegations suggest that the Secretary has not only failed to uphold the fundamental pillars of the Constitution but also misled the American public. The committee emphasized that such actions are intolerable, regardless of the Secretary’s political affiliation.

The Impact of Open Border Policies

The hearing delved into the substance and human cost of Secretary Mayorkas’ policies. A significant point of concern raised was the fentanyl epidemic in the United States. The committee highlighted that approximately 150,000 Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in 2021 and 2022, a number surpassing U.S. combat deaths in World War I and the Vietnam War combined. Over half of this fentanyl, according to the committee, is smuggled from Mexico into Arizona and then dispersed throughout the nation.

Border Security and Fentanyl Smuggling

A key argument presented by the committee was the assertion that a substantial amount of fentanyl is smuggled between ports of entry, challenging the notion that this is primarily a ports of entry problem. The Border Patrol reportedly intercepted enough fentanyl to kill every American citizen, and this is just the quantity caught. The committee expressed concerns about the unknown amount of fentanyl that might have entered the U.S. due to the nearly 1.8 million ‘known gotaways’ and the unknown number of ‘gotaways.’

The Role of Border Patrol and DHS Policy

The committee accused Secretary Mayorkas of redirecting Border Patrol agents from their primary duty of patrolling the border to processing and releasing illegal immigrants. This shift in focus, according to the committee, has made it easier for smugglers to transport fentanyl across the Southwest border. Additionally, the committee highlighted the increased crime and danger in American cities and neighborhoods due to what they perceive as the Secretary’s failure to enforce laws requiring the detention and removal of illegal aliens.

Criminal Activities and Public Safety Concerns

The hearing revealed alarming statistics about the number of aliens with criminal convictions apprehended by the Border Patrol. For instance, more than 41,000 aliens with criminal records, including over 15,000 in fiscal year 2023, were arrested since fiscal year 2021. This number marked a significant increase from just over 4,200 in fiscal year 2019. The committee expressed concerns that many illegal aliens with criminal records might have slipped through due to insufficient vetting processes.

The Consequences of Policy Decisions

The committee criticized Secretary Mayorkas for allegedly hamstringing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), resulting in fewer arrests of criminal illegal aliens compared to previous administrations. In one cited example, an individual named Daniel Hernandez Martinez, who arrived in New York in June 2023, committed multiple crimes shortly after entering the U.S. This case was used to illustrate the perceived broader impact of the Secretary’s policies on public safety.
