( – On a recent broadcast of the “Julie Mason Show” on SiriusXM, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican, suggested that initiating impeachment proceedings against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas could be a unifying action for the House GOP members.

Sen. Cruz remarked, “Such a move not only brings Republicans together in the House but also underscores the profound human distress stemming from the Biden administration’s lax border policies. It’s something they ought to have acted on by now.”

In the context of recent upheavals in the House GOP following the removal of Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Cruz emphasized the necessity of regaining focus. He proposed that the House GOP should also consider impeachment proceedings for Attorney General Merrick Garland. Cruz criticized Garland, labeling him as overtly partisan. He also mentioned claims from two IRS whistleblowers alleging that Garland provided misleading information during a Senate Judiciary Committee session, particularly in a response to Cruz. Additionally, Cruz hinted at possible obstruction of justice by Garland concerning investigations related to Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s alleged involvement.

Despite the growing concern over increasing illegal border crossings, which have surpassed 200,000 monthly, momentum for Mayorkas’ impeachment in the House seemed to wane over the summer months.

Former Speaker McCarthy had previously communicated to POLITICO in August about the gravity of impeachment, stating it should be reserved for actions that truly warrant it. He added that investigations into Mayorkas were ongoing.

Rep. Chip Roy of Texas, a member of the Freedom Caucus, expressed to POLITICO that the evaluation of Mayorkas should not just be based on the standard of “high crimes and misdemeanors” but also on his overall job performance. Roy emphasized the slim majority margin, indicating that the stance of only a few members could determine the outcome.

In related news, despite President Joe Biden’s previous campaign assertion against further border wall construction, his administration declared plans to bypass 26 laws to facilitate additional border structures. This decision was defended by Mayorkas, who stated in a federal notice that there’s a pressing need for physical barriers to curtail unauthorized entries in specific border regions.
