McCarthy Calls for DHS Secretary Mayorkas to Resign, Our Country May Never Recover His Dereliction of Duty


Early Tuesday, Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader, made an announcement about DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. This was at an El Paso press conference. Many speculated that McCarthy’s announcement was related to Mayorkas’ continued service. McCarthy basically told Mayorkas to “Resign or we’re going after you… and maybe impeachment you.”

McCarthy stated:

“In 42 days the united Republican House takes control. In 42 days we end one-party Democrat rule in Washington. The new House Republicans will work to stop Joe Biden’s assault on our laws, our borders, and our border agents. We will use the power of the purse and the power of the subpoena. Now, let me be clear, those responsible for this disaster will be held accountable. I’ve spoken today again with Congressman Jim Jordan and Jamie Comer, the future chair of the Oversight and Judiciary committee, and they have my full support to investigate the collapse of our border and the shutdown of ICE enforcement nationwide.”

“Our country might never recover from Secretary Mayorkas’ derelictions of duty. Today, I call on Secretary Mayorkas to resign. He must resign immediately. House Republicans will investigate any order, every action, and every failure of Secretary Mayorkas if he does not resign. We will determine if we are able to begin an impeachment investigation.”

Aren’t Republicans enough strong to launch an impeachment investigation after Mayorkas’ multiple appearances before committees in the past two years, including last week, when he lied about the border being shut? We don’t have to waste our time poring over every document before the cameras. We only have two years. It is time to act.
