GOP's McCarthy threatens to impeach Mayorkas over border

Source: AP

By LISA MASCARO 43 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday called on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over management of the U.S. southern border with Mexico, warning that the new House GOP majority will open investigations that could lead to impeachment proceedings.

McCarthy, who is positioned to become the new House speaker when the new Congress convenes in January, said the Republican majority would use “the power of the purse and the power of the subpoena” to hold President Joe Biden’s administration accountable for border security.

“If Secretary Majority 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 at a press conference in El Paso, Texas.

“This investigation could lead to an impeachment inquiry,” he said.

2. The ego of a buffoon and the mind of a snail

I don't think he understands one iota of political legitimacy. He's ready to rush in, knuckles flying, and to hell with facts, polls, tradition. McCarthy will eventually fail, but it could be a tumultuous 2 years.

He got some big balls all of a sudden with a 5 vote majority in the House.

7. I doubt he will get all the Republicans in the House to vote yes with that absurdity as

there are probably atleast a few of them that could lose the next round of elections especially if they won last time by a thin margin.

10. What an asshole. As if he has any real power.

Why not impeach all the Democrats...several times each?
I mean, how many times did they try to repeal the Affordable Care act?
These people just don't get it! Stupid is a way of life for them.
Here they have a chance to do something, and all they want to do is beat their chests and pretend that their actions have some sort of meaningful consequences, other than making them look lie idiots.

I hope they spend the next two years pretending that their impeachment actions actually cause someone to be removed from office.
It will give the voters a real good look at what these republicans are good for...absolutely nothing!

11. A shitty ploy, obviously intended to rile up the racist Republikkkan base

The Impeachment would go nowhere, of course, but then Fuckface McCarthy can claim that this proves that Democrats are soft on border security.

14. Won't it just PROVE how much better things are being handled under Biden?

JUST SAY NO and BUILD A WALL very much failed.

An 8 year path to citizenship, seems to be thought out and practical way to resolve immigrants in the country already getting their citizenship.

Keeping the practical aspects of restraint and working with Mexico so that we don't get flooded and systems completely overwhelmed, bringing in many legally that qualify for asylum so that the issues get resolved and people don't need to hide.

Multiple types of VISAs to diversify the population able to enter.

PLANS - ACTION - DONE. Again.

Can someone explain that to me? Thanks.

21. IDK, but let's see what whacko they pull in as the "serial killer" of those

three "vulnerable, lonely" working women who literally "got stiffed" in Mexican hotels as reported by Fox News and picked up by the India Times and MSN. Suspect is American and said to be laying low in San Diego? That would involve a border crossing, for sure! Maybe typical service rates were also being inflated to death, so Alejandro has to go? Must be some unusual surveillance going down in San Diego if there's a suspect w/o a name, photo, or description (just enough to make the perp edgy, I'd suppose) or Faux invented yet another danger at the border... /no sarcasm - (just to reply to clear up your confusion re inflation, Yavin4); these ARE likely serious crimes; just don't trust the Faux Noise when I read about it first somewhere beyond the border towns involved first; still, mighty interested if there's follow up to this distraction as picked up...Make no mistake, MURDERERS SUCK! I make no legit light of it; inflation's mostly made by corporate greed and Jerome Powell's poor timing of a very visible "hand" on rates! Still, maybe, there was no time like the present even though natives in every group were getting restless.

"An American man is suspected to have killed at least three sex workers in the Mexican city of Tijuana, setting off a massive manhunt for him in the United States and Mexico, reported Fox News." [snip] for the rest.

23. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas serves @ the pleasure of the President ..

not that ass clown McCarthy who is only going to be Speaker of the House because of gerrymandering
and the SCOTUS' allowing that to happen.

BTW McCarthy doesn't even know that House has a foreign affairs committee.
https://www.usnews.com/news/top-news/articles/2022-11-20/mccarthy-says-he-will-form-select-committee-on-china-if-elected-speaker

BTW part 2 why would any Hispanic vote GOP? They hate brown people.

25. Regarding Part 2 ... every country/culture/race has conservatives and liberals

The genes that make us one or the other (or a blend) of the two are much more ancient in our evolutionary heritage than the genes that divide us by minor physical characteristics like skin color, eye shape, etc.

There are conservative Hispanic people in the US for the same reason there are conservative Hispanic people in Mexico, Cuba, Panama, Brazil, Chile, Spain, etc.

26. All true but I still don't get it. Just like WTF is going on in the brains of people who would ...

.... vote for screamingly flawed people such as Trump and or a Boebert who is a high school drop out,
had to take the GED 3 times (just passing after she was elected to congress, an escort (allegedly),
lied about a shooting behind her business in Colorado, has a husband who showed his dick to under
age girls, and wore a 1776 t-shirt on 1/6/21.

BTW all humans are out of the great rift valley in east central Africa 50,000 years and we all share
maternal mitochondrial DNA from a common background. 'cept for one group of people on an island
the Indian Ocean. I think they come from UFOs that have sasquatch pilots.

And if it wasn't for massive gerrymandering and a Supreme Court that supports right wing Christo
Fascism in the drawing of those districts the Ds would be the majority in the House by >30 votes.
We really are dealing with a party and power structure that is dedicated to having the minority
control the majority because they know that they are doomed by demographics and what the American
people want. I just hope that McCarthy is such a ham fisted fuck up that he fails so badly that he
is driven from power.

28. We violated the Mexican border in 1846, based upon lies....

And now they finally strike back?

As far as I know, almost all of them are not carrying any firearms.... only seeking asylum or prosperity in our country, which is experiencing a great shortage of low-wage workers just now-- in case the far right has not noticed....



It seems the Republicans would prefer to try to force blacks and poor whites into low-paying jobs, rather than accept new immigrants who are desperate to work those jobs, into the country....
