Senator Marshall Issues Statement on Articles of Impeachment for DHS Sec. Mayorkas Delivered to the Senate:

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. issued the following statement on the U.S. House of Representatives transmitting articles of impeachment for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the U.S. Senate. 

“With over 11 million illegal border crossings, including nearly 2 million unvetted ‘gotaways’ now living here on U.S. soil, of those terrorists, violent gang members, and drug cartels, DHS Secretary Mayorkas has broken his oath to the American people resulting in this dangerous and deadly invasion of our country,” Senator Marshall said. “Secretary Mayorkas is derelict in his duties, and his actions, or lack thereof, have endangered the safety of every American. There must be accountability. I am glad the House of Representatives has sent the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate; now let’s bring this to a trial. Let’s debate his record, hear the arguments on both sides and render a verdict. The Senate has a constitutional duty to hold an impeachment trial; any diversion from this responsibility by Senate Democrats would set a dangerous precedent and undermine the institution, our founding fathers, and the U.S. Constitution.”
