House Republicans are moving toward a chamber-wide vote on whether to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the border crisis.
A Cabinet secretary has not been impeached since 1876.
Mayorkas is facing two impeachment articles, one that accuses him of having “refused to comply with Federal immigration laws” and the other of having violated “public trust.”
Those articles passed out of the House Rules Committee on a party-line 8-4 vote Monday evening. That sets up a procedural rule vote that, if passed, will be followed by a House floor debate and then a final impeachment vote.
