The House on Thursday put off a vote on an effort to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas after GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene pulled her resolution.
Greene said she did so after she received assurances from Speaker Mike Johnson that Republicans will “move forward with impeaching Mayorkas.”
“We will be moving my articles of impeachment through the Homeland committee,” Green told reporters. “Once we vote it out of committee, we will take it to the floor.”
She would not provide a timeline but said it would occur “very soon.”
“They [leadership] wanted to see it go through the process, which is understandable to me, but the American people are really tired of waiting. So, we had good talks today I’m satisfied with the plan,” she said.
Greene introduced the resolution on Wednesday — her second this month — to impeach Mayorkas over his handling of the southern border. Greene said Mayorkas is failing to uphold his constitutional duty to protect states from what she called “invasion” and has accused him of high crimes and misdemeanors related to migrants and drugs crossing at the border.
A spokesperson for DHS dismissed Greene’s resolution as a “baseless attack.”
The move came after eight Republicans voted with Democrats to block Green’s impeachment effort earlier this month — referring it to the House Homeland Security Committee. Greene introduced similar articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in May, but House GOP leaders never brought them to a vote.
