Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia submitted the resolution back on November 13, 2023.
Resolution 863 states.
Impeaching Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security, for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Resolved, That Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security of the United States of America, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:
Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against Alejandro N. Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Here is the full text of the resolution.
The vote will take place on Thursday.
Mayorkas broke the law. That is obvious.
Watch @RepMarkGreen take a brief moment to set the record straight @HouseGOP is not impeaching Secretary Mayorkas for maladministration.
He has broken the laws enacted by this very body and has clearly lost the public trust.
That alone warrants impeachment. pic.twitter.com/1HjcOdiHQD
