Republicans are meticulously investigating Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security, claiming he has failed to address the harrowing consequences of the crisis at the southern border. They are now advocating for impeachment, citing widespread incidents of sex trafficking and fentanyl-related poisonings.
House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green, R-Tenn., expressed to DailyMail.com that, in the wake of new bombshell findings to be released this week, Congress might launch an impeachment inquiry into Mayorkas.
“If we have a secretary who’s completely ignoring those facts, and ignoring the plight of those children, then absolutely I would support an impeachment inquiry,” ex-DHS agent Tim Ballard, whose story of rescuing children from sex slavery is featured in the film ‘The Sound of Freedom,’ told DailyMail.com.
Ballard attributes the trafficking crisis at the U.S. border to the policies of the Biden administration.
“They’re being kidnapped, they’re being trafficked, they’re being raped,” he said.
The White House has consistently asserted that President Biden has not been implicated in his son Hunter’s business activities, although Republicans claim they have initiated impeachment inquiries into Joe Biden and his family’s alleged “culture of corruption.” Chairman Green underscored the significance of multitasking as multiple committees scrutinize potential wrongdoing by the Biden administration.
Among the witnesses that testified on Wednesday’s hearing on the border crisis are Sandy Snodgrass, whose son Bruce tragically succumbed to fentanyl poisoning in 2021, and Mayra Cantu, the wife of border patrol agent Gary Cantu. Mayra will share insights into the “consequences” stemming from the border crisis.
In the meantime, Ballard will be partnering with Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., to hold a press conference on Tuesday. The purpose is to bring attention to a bill that mandates the Biden administration to locate the 85,000 unaccompanied children who have recently made their way across the border.
Last year, the U.S.-Mexico frontier witnessed 686 cases of “deaths and disappearances” of migrants, as reported by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Chairman Green’s committee is currently examining this issue, along with the potential infiltration of Chinese spies through the southern border into the United States.
Ultimately, Republican leaders aspire that their investigation into the border crisis and potential impeachments will cease the heartbreaking destiny that befalls numerous minors entering the United States.
