(GoRealNewsNow.com) – In a wildly perplexing move, a number of GOP US lawmakers have sided with the left to save from impeachment President Joe Biden’s infamous Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who oversees America’s invasion by millions of Third World illegal aliens.
In a vote on Monday, eight Republican members of the House of Representatives joined Democrats to halt a resolution that would have considered the impeachment of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his alleged failure to secure the US-Mexico border.
The vote was on a motion to table, or postpone, the potential impeachment of Mayorkas. The final tally was 209–201, leading to the referral of the impeachment resolution to the Homeland Security Committee.
This action effectively prevents the motion from being voted on the House floor and spares legislators from directly addressing the matter, National Review points out in a report.
The Republicans who voted against the majority of their party were Reps. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Tom McClintock (R-CA), John Duarte (R-CA), Virginia Foxx (R-VA), Darrell Issa (R-CA), Cliff Bentz (R-OR), Ken Buck (CO), and Mike Turner (OH).
“If we impeach anybody, it’s going to be up to [Oversight Committee Chairman Comer] and the Judiciary Committee to decide that he’s ready to move the impeachment inquiry to a full impeachment on President Biden,” Rep. Duarte had told reporters last week.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) initiated the impeachment motion last Thursday, accusing Mayorkas of not maintaining control of the border and not addressing the migrant crisis since 2021.
This motion, marked as privileged, required the House to vote within two legislative days. This event marks Greene’s second attempt to impeach Mayorkas this year, with the first attempt in May.
Monday’s vote coincided with the day Homeland Security Committee Republicans published their report on the financial impact of the southern border crisis under President Biden’s administration.
Greene criticized the committee on the House floor for delaying her impeachment efforts.
After the vote, she expressed her disappointment in a video, accusing her party members of “protecting” Mayorkas.
“While the House Majority has wasted months trying to score points with baseless attacks, Secretary Mayorkas has been doing his job and working to keep Americans safe,” DHS spokeswoman Mia Ehrenberg stated earlier.
