8 House Republicans voted with Democrats Monday on a motion to refer articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Security Alejandro Mayorkas introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote ahead of the vote:

Our border is wide open and Americans are dying everyday.

It’s time for Congress to hold the Biden administration accountable.

It’s time to IMPEACH Mayorkas.

Tonight, the House will vote on the Democrat motion to table (kill) my articles of impeachment against Mayorkas.

Every Republican should stand strong and vote AGAINST the motion.

A vote to table is a vote with Democrats to protect Mayorkas and against impeachment.


With the help of 8 Republicans, the House tabled her articles of impeachment against Mayorkas.

The 8 Republicans include:

  • Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO)
  • Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)
  • Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA)
  • Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC)
  • Rep. John Duarte (R-CA)
  • Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC)
  • Rep. Cliff Bentz (R-OR)
  • Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH)

The Hill reports:

Eight House Republicans broke from their party Monday to vote against a resolution that was aimed to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas from his position.

In a 209-201 vote, the House chamber decided to shelve the resolution, first introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), and supported a motion to refer it to the Homeland Security Committee.

As a result, the proposed resolution was blocked from coming to the House floor for a vote, shielding lawmakers from having to weigh in on the matter directly.

Greene’s proposed resolution, which she moved to force a vote on last week, accuses Mayorkas of “willful admittance of border crossers” and says he has a duty to protect the U.S. from an “invasion.”

The Georgia lawmaker also accuses him of violating the Secure Fence Act, a 2006 law that demands perfection at the border by declaring the border operationally secure only if no people or contraband improperly enter the country.


“To the 8 Republicans who voted with Dems to kill the impeachment of Mayorkas: How many more Americans have to die while you claim impeachment has to be done the ‘right way?’ My articles have been rotting in committee and now go back on the shelf. Your excuses are pathetic!” Greene wrote.
