Biden Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has continued to face pressure to resign by the newly elected Republican majority in the House of Representatives.
Incoming prospective House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) has told Mayorkas that if he does not voluntarily resign, the House will start impeachment proceedings against him.
Calls for Mayorkas to be removed come as the United States faces an unprecedented crisis at the border.
For the second year in a row, the United States is set to break records for the number of illegal immigrants apprehended at the border, with over 2 million expected in Fiscal Year 2022.
Biden has not entertained firing Mayorkas and instead has floated mass amnesty plans for illegal immigrants along with top Senate Democrats such as Chuck Schumer (D-Ny.).

An Arizona Republican congresswoman whose caucus is poised to control the U.S. House by a narrow margin in January warned Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas he must resign or face House investigations when the GOP takes the gavel.
Rep. Debbie Lesko said she wants to echo a call from House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy for Mayorkas to step down.
“I’m glad that he has given Mayorkas an ultimatum: Either resign or we’re going to start investigations and see if it leads to impeachment,” Lesko told “Your World” Friday.
“I personally have signed on to legislation to impeach Mayorkas. Prior to that, I signed on to legislation that he resign, and I signed on to letters asking him to resign.”
Lesko, a member of the House Border Security Caucus, added Mayorkas was invited to appear before them and she was shocked he did so.
