Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Takes Aim at Homeland Security Secretary with Impeachment Motion

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has reignited the impeachment debate by pushing for a vote on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. 

The issue, previously overshadowed by GOP divisions on impeachment authority, is now thrust back into the spotlight with a privileged resolution demanding swift action.

Rep. Greene Reignites Impeachment Talk

The resolution, accusing Mayorkas of willful admittance of border crossers and alleged violations of the Secure Fence Act, underscores Greene’s belief that the Homeland Security Secretary’s conduct is incompatible with his duties. The 2006 law demands perfection at the border, defining operational control as the prevention of any illegal border crossings.

Mayorkas, however, has vehemently defended his actions, emphasizing the impracticality of achieving perfect operational control, even under the statutory definition. He argues for a layer of reasonableness, highlighting the dedication of resources and personnel to the border to ensure effective results.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and congressional Democrats dismiss the impeachment effort as an improper use of the process over policy differences, asserting that Mayorkas has not committed high crimes or misdemeanors as required by the Constitution.

Broader Implications for Republican Unity

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has reignited the impeachment debate by pushing for a vote on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.


Greene’s move places Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) in a challenging position, forcing leadership to decide whether to bring the legislation to the floor, motion to table it, or refer it to the committee. The urgency of the privileged resolution requires action within two legislative days, adding pressure to an already contentious debate.

While Republicans have long targeted Mayorkas for perceived failures in border security and alleged dishonesty before Congress, the GOP remains divided on the pursuit of impeachment. 

The renewed focus on Mayorkas comes amid ongoing impeachment inquiries into President Biden, further highlighting internal party divisions on this contentious issue.

As the House reconvenes on Monday evening, the decision on whether to proceed with the impeachment vote will be a critical test for GOP leadership and a reflection of the party’s stance on holding officials accountable for their actions.
