( – Senate Republicans are growing increasingly more frustrated with the House Republicans push for a dual impeachment of Alejandro Mayorkas, the Homeland Security Secretary. The House GOP has also been trying to kill the bipartisan border bill that the Senate has been negotiating.

Senators are hopeful that following months of negotiations a border deal is going to be released within the week. However, in recent days it has become more unlikely that the bill would be able to pass through Congress as Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has repeatedly stated that the bill would not pass through the House even if it did manage to make it through the Senate. 

At the same time, the House GOP is looking to push forward the impeachment articles against Mayorkas following the House Homeland Security Committee meeting on Tuesday. Many House Republican leaders have been pushing for an impeachment of Mayorkas for months, despite the fact that the Senate is unlikely to convict him.  

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) pointed out that in many ways there is a “parallel.” He added that they are pushing to kill a bill despite not having seen its content. He argued that this is very similar to them targeting specific members of the administration without first determining the reason they should be impeached. He added that while he did not agree with this they were “consistent” with going against things that they did not know anything about. He added that people were “cutting corners.”
