America First Republicans have been pressuring current House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) to take a tougher stance on issues such as immigration if he wants their votes to be elected Speaker.
Republicans will hold a slim majority coming into the new legislative session, making every vote count if McCarthy wants to secure the top job in the House.
Already, he has shown that he is responsive to their concerns after he told Biden Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that he must resign his position or the House will impeach him.
Immigration experts say that Biden and Mayorkas are largely to blame for the current immigration crisis “Mayorkas has eviscerated our interior immigration enforcement apparatus—meaning that once an illegal alien enters our country, they become virtually impossible to remove,” said Matthew Tragesser at the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy threatened President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas with impeachment Tuesday during a visit to the border in El Paso, Texas.
McCarthy, who is vying for the House speakership, said Republicans will push for Mayorkas’ impeachment if he refuses to step down. He was joined by several Republican colleagues, including Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales, who represents a southern border district, that made the trip to show support for Border Patrol.
“His actions have produced the greatest wave of illegal immigration in recorded history. Our country may never recover from Secretary Mayorkas’ dereliction of duty. This is why today I am calling on the secretary to resign. He cannot and must not remain in that position,” McCarthy said.
“If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate every order, every action and every failure to determine whether we can begin an impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy said.
