BREAKING: House GOP sends articles of impeachment against Mayorkas to Senate

They were delivered on Tuesday afternoon to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

GOP House leadership delivered the articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday afternoon. 

The articles have been a long time coming against the DHS secretary amid the ongoing border crisis under his tenure in managing border security. 

The House GOP impeached Mayorkas in February and the motion faced many hurdles since it was first proposed. 

It is alleged in the documents that Mayorkas "repeatedly violated laws enacted by Congress regarding immigration and border security" as well as "made false statements to Congress" saying that the border was safe and secure. 

When Mayorkas was impeached in the House, he released a statement saying, "I assure you that your false accusations do not rattle me and do not divert me from the law enforcement and broader public service mission to which I have devoted most of my career and to which I remain devoted.” 

The Democrat controlled Senate, however, is vying to dismiss the impeachment articles with some pushing for there not to be an impeachment trial at all, which would break years of precedent.  

Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) touched on what not holding a trial could mean for breaking the long-held precedent on Monday. 

“If Democrats set a new precedent by making an impeachment trial impossible - which I'm afraid they're gonna try to do - they will be silencing the voices of Americans," Kennedy said. 

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) also spoke on how not going forward with a trial in the Senate would be breaking decades of precedent and may be unconstitutional.
