Kevin McCarthy called on Tuesday for the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorcas, warning that impeachment proceedings could take place if he does not step down, as House Republican leaders called for a vote for the presidency. In an effort to contain it, he made his strongest comment yet on the issue.

McCarthy learned from events at the southern border that Republicans take over the house in Januarythey will “investigate every order, every action, and every failure” to determine whether impeachment proceedings should be initiated.

“Our country may never recover from Secretary Mayorcas’ dereliction of duty. This is why I am asking the secretary to resign today,” he said. “If Secretary Mayorcas does not step down, House Republicans will investigate every order, every action, every failure.

In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security said Majorcas: I have no plans to resign And he called on Congress to come up with a legislative solution to fix the country’s broken immigration system. It addresses non-citizens in numbers and acknowledges that changing demographics are adding to the migration challenges they face.

“Secretary Majorcas is proud to advance the Department’s noble mission, support its extraordinary workforce, and serve the American people. He has no plans to resign,” said a DHS spokesperson. “The Department of State will continue to work to enforce our laws and protect our borders while building a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system. We should set out and work to fix the broken systems and outdated laws that are not in place.”

McCarthy and top Republicans repeatedly promised to launch a rigorous investigation Due to troubles on the southern border, McCarthy has, up to this point, largely suppressed impeachment talks, neither pre-determining the outcome nor using impeachment as a political weapon, and choosing where to go next year. He said he would follow the facts.

Leave McCarthy’s tone change facing rebellion from his right wing At least five Republican congressmen vowed to vote against him on the floor in January. One of his complaints about McCarthy from Republican hardliners is that he is not aggressive enough when it comes to investigations and impeachment.

While the right is particularly reeling from Mr Mallorca’s impeachment, others within the party are skeptical that Mr Mallorca’s actions meet the criteria for serious or misdemeanor crimes. Impeachment of a Cabinet member has happened only once in the history of the United States.

McCarthy – who was nominated by his party last week Serving as Speaker – Commenting on Mallorcas from El Paso, Texas, where he and a group of House Republicans met with Border Patrol agents and received operational briefings earlier in the day.

“We spent the day with Border Patrol,” McCarthy said at a press conference after their visit. They said no. It’s one of the worst things in the history of this country.”

When asked what potential crimes Republicans would investigate, McCarthy replied:

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre asked McCarthy what his immigration plans were for Tuesday’s planned visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, saying Republicans had “no plans.” ‘ was accused of doing a ‘political stunt’ alone.

“The question we have for Kevin McCarthy, who will soon become Chairman McCarthy, is what are his plans? What is he doing to help with the situation we are seeing? When asked about the White House reaction to McCarthy’s visit, Jean-Pierre said he went down there and said many Republicans It does a political stunt like it does, but doesn’t actually present a plan.

Republicans are already laying the groundwork for next year’s border inquiry. Top Republican lawmakers demand extensive documents related to the Biden administration’s immigration policy enforcement and want the White House to formally hold hearings and transcribe interviews with Majorcas and many other officials. officially announced.
