(FixThisNation.com) – The House Homeland Security is preparing for its first impeachment hearing which would push forward the case against Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
Committee Chairman Mark Green, R-Tenn., announced that the committee is scheduled to hold its first hearing on Jan. 10 into Mayorkas. As he told Fox News Digital, the American people have for the last three years been demanding a change that will help secure the U.S. southern border. He added that they have been also pushing for Congress to hold those responsible for the current situation accountable.
Green argued that this was why the Homeland Security Committee had led an extensive probe into what the causes and costs of the border crisis were. He added that in their investigation it became evident that the crisis was the result of the decisions made by Mayorkas and his general refusal to enforce Congressional laws regarding the border. He pointed out that Mayorkas needed to be held accountable for having failed to fulfill his oath of office.
In November there was a bipartisan House vote that referred the articles of impeachment to the House Committee which further pointed to the importance of the impeachment process moving forward. He added that this process is going to start on Wednesday.
DHS spokesperson Mia Ehrenberg stated that the House GOP, which currently holds the majority, was wasting taxpayer dollars and time on moving forward with a “baseless political exercise” that previously both parties had rejected during a bipartisan vote.
