Washington, D.C. (RELEASE) February 14th, 2024 — Congresswoman Harriet Hageman voted to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for violating his oath of office and his obligation to keep us safe from enemies foreign and domestic. The two articles of impeachment were filed for willfully and systemically refusing to comply with – and violating — federal immigration laws and breach of the public trust. This breach of trust extends beyond our borders into the censorship of protected free speech.

Congresswoman Hageman has been selected by Speaker of the House Mike Johnson to serve as an impeachment manager for any upcoming Senate trial of Secretary Mayorkas.

Hageman stated, “Not only has Secretary Mayorkas overseen an invasion across our borders, allowing enough fentanyl and other drugs to kill every man, woman, and child in the U.S., human trafficking controlled by vicious cartels, hundreds of people on the terror watch list, and a total of over 8.3 million illegal entries to date, he has lied to Congress multiple times while under oath and dismantled successful border policy that has led to the crisis we have today.

“He is the walking, talking epitome of the sort of tyrant that our founders were concerned would gravitate towards a career in government. It is because of people like him that the 1st Amendment was drafted.

“To that point, Mayorkas has weaponized the federal government to censor law abiding citizens – Christians attending mass, parents attending school board meetings, people sharing information on social media, and more. This censorship has been blatant – and it has been targeted against political opponents of the President. The Secretary took an oath to uphold the Constitution, not circumvent it.

“Secretary Mayorkas must be held accountable for both the long-term effect of this border crisis and the censorship weaponization he has directed against the American people. I am grateful to be one of the select few chosen by Speaker Johnson to prosecute this case in the Senate, and I thank him for the confidence that he has placed in me. Mayorkas must go.”
