GOP knows Mayorkas must go, but will they make it happen?

Despite growing dissatisfaction with the DHS, an immigration enforcement organization has no idea if congressional Republicans will ever pull the impeachment lever on the department's secretary.

On Wednesday, members of the House Homeland Security Committee once again grilled Alejandro Mayorkas over the border crisis. He maintains that everything is fine.

"It is my testimony that the border is secure," Homeland Security secretary said. "We are working every day, day and night, to increase its security."

But Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) was not having it.

"While you live in denial and sit over there with this attitude that you're doing everything right, you are killing Americans with your policies," she told Mayorkas.

The committee, however, struck her comments and ended her time to speak after she called the secretary a liar.

Meanwhile in the Senate, Roger Marshall (R) of Kansas has introduced a resolution to trigger a vote of no confidence for Mayorkas, and he is ready to receive articles of impeachment from the House and conduct an impeachment trial in his chamber of Congress.

"This secretary is derelict in his duties," says Marshall. "He's got to go."

Mehlman, Ira (Federation for American Immigration Reform) Mehlman

Ira Mehlman is media director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which is among the 15 advocacy groups that have asked the Republican-led House to follow through on a long list of promises they made to American voters. He thinks the public can help make Mayorkas' impeachment happen.

"As to when the House is going to move on this, if they move on this, I don't think I can answer that part of it," he tells AFN.

He notes, though, that "citizen pressure on members of Congress certainly does play a role."
