Arrington Responds to Senate Democrats Dismissing Mayorkas Impeachment Without Full, Complete Trial

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Budget Chairman Jodey Arrington (TX-19) issued the following statement in response to the United States Senate dismissing two articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas without a full, complete trial:

“Today, Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats bowed to the Radical Left instead of standing for our Constitution and serving the American people.

 “Democrats’ outright dismissal of the impeachment against Secretary Mayorkas - without even holding a trial - breaks with 200 years of precedent and is a slap in the face to countless communities across our nation that have suffered from the chaos and lawlessness at our southern border.

“Our communities cannot suffer under Biden’s broken border policies for another day. That’s why I’m calling on the House to immediately pass my H. Res. 50 to affirm states’ sovereign right to secure their borders and protect their citizens when the federal government fails to do so.”
