House Republican on the removal of the DHS secretary: "You have to build a case"

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said Sunday that Republicans should “build a case” when asked if he supported potential efforts by House Republicans to impeach the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security ( DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas for his management of the US-Mexico border. .

McCaul told ABC’s “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz that Mayorkas had “failed his responsibilities” but “you have to build a case” before the impeachment.

“You need the facts, the evidence before you charge,” the GOP lawmaker said.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) last week called for the resignation of Mayorkassaying Republicans will investigate and could impeach him when they take control of the House in the next Congress.

The GOP has repeatedly hammered Mayorkas and how he has run DHS, pointing to statements he has made that the border is under control despite the record number of border crossings.

Republicans also raised concerns about the end of the “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy enacted under the Trump administration, which allowed border agents to force migrants to wait in Mexico while their asylum applications asylum were heard.

McCaul said on Sunday he believes the DHS under the Biden administration was “accomplicated in the greatest human trafficking of our lifetimes.”

“I think the American people deserve some responsibility,” he said while claiming, “I have a wide open border in my home state.”
