The Arizona Republican introduced two articles of impeachment accusing Mayorkas of ‘reckless abandonment’ of border Security.

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., has filed articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, seeking to hold him responsible for the border crisis.

“He is the guy who is responsible for the border security and national security, and it is a disaster down there,” Biggs, who is accusing Mayorkas of “reckless abandonment” of border security told Fox News. “He has failed utterly in his duty,” he continued.

“This is not because of his personality, not because of his partisanship … What this is about is he is enacting bad policy,” said the congressman.

Biggs’ impeachment articles (there are two) accuse the secretary of engaging in “a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with his duties as an Officer of the United States,” and engaging “in a pattern of conduct that has placed departmental personnel and American citizens at risk of exposure to and contracting COVID-19 by refusing to take necessary steps to prevent potentially contagious illegal aliens from entering the United States.”

The first resolution accuses Mayorkas of failing to maintain “operational control” of the border, which he is required to do by law. It gestures specifically to his decision to allow the release of illegal migrants into the country while awaiting their hearings. 

It reads, “The Secretary of Homeland Security does not have the option of simply releasing those aliens into the interior of the United States.”

In June alone nearly 190,000 illegal immigrants were encountered at the United States southern border, and that number is merely the known crossers. Since President Joe Biden assumed office in January, an estimated 1.3 million illegal immigrants have entered the country with little-to-no resistance from the federal government.

The second article claims the DHS head has failed to properly implement Title 42, a Trump-era public health protection that allows for the fast expulsion of illegal immigrants at the border due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, the article states that Mayorkas has “released and transported hundreds of thousands of aliens into the interior of the United States without properly screening the aliens for COVID-19 to ensure that the aliens would not spread COVID-19.”

A recent report reveals that at least 18% of migrant families leaving the custody of Border Patrol test positive for Covid-19 before being sent to all corners of the United States. An additional 25% of migrants recently scheduled to be deported on U.S. flights test positive before boarding. 

The articles need a simple majority in the lower chamber to advance to the Senate, at which point a two-thirds majority is needed to convict an official.

Border Crisis

Border crisis: Smuggler hits Border Patrol Agent with 2×4 board

SAN DIEGO – The U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) San Diego Sector (SDC) in collaboration with the Government of Mexico (GoM) conducted an operation on Wednesday, September 1st, 2021, targeting the organization believed to be responsible for the assault on a Border Patrol agent. A total of five individuals were arrested, to include one United States Citizen. Ammunition, narcotics, vehicles, and a cache of makeshift ladders used for smuggling purposes were also seized.

On Saturday, August 28, 2021, at approximately 3:15 a.m., two miles east of the San Ysidro Port of Entry, a Border Patrol agent was assaulted in the line of duty. The agent was attempting to apprehend approximately 12 to 15 migrants who were in between the primary and secondary border walls. When the group was alerted to the agent’s presence in the area, they scaled the primary border wall and absconded back into Mexico. As the lone agent attempted to recover the makeshift ladder used by the group, a member of the group grabbed the ladder and a struggle ensued.

Under the cover of darkness, a smuggler in Mexico struck out at the agent through a slot in the wall, hitting the agent with a large object, believed to be a 2×4 board. The injured Border Patrol agent retrieved the ladder and retreated to safety. Backup agents quickly arrived at the site and transported the injured agent to a local hospital where she was treated for contusions and facial lacerations.

This incident represents the third assault against Border Patrol Agents in San Diego during the past month. It also adds to other recent incidents, including shots fired at agents in San Diego and Texas, prompting a response from U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents continue their unwavering commitment to provide border and national security to the American public despite recent attacks against them along our Southwest border. We take these threats and acts of violence seriously and will do everything we can to identify and bring to justice those who seek to harm the men and women of the Border Patrol,” said U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz.

Immediately following the assault, the USBP SDC Foreign Operations Branch (FOB) began coordination with GOM to target the Transnational Criminal Organization (TCO) responsible for the assault, sharing current information of known smugglers in the area where the assault took place with GOM to assist in the investigation.

The GoM’s Fiscalia General de la Republica (FGR) executed two search warrants resulting in the arrest of a United States Citizen and four Mexican Nationals. Additionally, five vehicles, a residential property, an undisclosed amount of fentanyl pills, a half kilogram of methamphetamine, numerous rounds of various ammunition, and a cache of ready-to-use ladders were seized in connection with Saturday’s assault.

“I commend our agents and Mexico law enforcement partners on these arrests and seizures, said Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke. “Assaults against our agents will never be tolerated and as witnessed by this operation, we will always leverage our resources and strong binational partnerships to bring the perpetrators and their criminal associates to justice regardless of where they hide.”
