Mayorkas Facing Music As Impeachment Looms

Since President Joe Biden entered the oval office in 2021, things have been tumultuous in the United States. Indeed, of his term, America has faced increasing problems at the domestic and international levels. Rampant inflation peaked in 2022, reaching levels not witnessed in 40 years. 60% of the nation is estimated to be living paycheck to paycheck. Millions of illegal migrants are estimated to have crossed the southern border since early 2021. Biden reversed many of the former president Donald Trump’s immigration and border security policies that had been appearing to be working at the commencement of his presidency. Following the United States botched withdrawal from Afghanistan in which 13 American servicemembers died, many Afghani citizens who had been loyal to and supporters of the United States fled the nation as the Taliban regained power. Many of these individuals were resettled in Europe and America.

Earlier in the month, greater instability erupted in the middle eastern region. The Islamic terrorist group Hamas infiltrated the Israeli border and murdered over 1,400 citizens on October 7th. Israel responded accordingly, declaring war on Gaza and taking offensive military measures of their own. While president Biden has made general statements claiming to support Israel’s sovereign right to defend itself, he has come under fire for continuing to fail to handle an open border crisis. Biden and his administration have also reportedly considered allowing Palestinians to be admitted to the United States. Recently, Senator Steve Daines authored legislation in the Senate that would prohibit President Biden from allowing Palestinians to relocate to America. Palestine is the nation that sponsored Hamas, the terrorist group that committed the atrocities in Israel.

As conflict continues to rage in the middle east, the southern border crisis also worsens. Mark Green, a congressman from Tennessee serving as the chair of Homeland Security, recently claimed he had the votes to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of the department of Homeland Security.
