Rep. Carlos Gimenez Questions Witnesses on the Human Cost of Mayorkas Border Crisis

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Congressman Carlos A. Giménez (FL-28) questioned witnesses in the second impeachment hearing into the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. This hearing entitled Voices for the Victims: The Heartbreaking Reality of the Mayorkas Border Crisis examined the consequences of Secretary Mayorkas’ border crisis. Testimony was heard from those who have been directly impacted by his Secretary Mayorkas’ refusal to enforce our laws at the border. 

This hearing is the result of a thorough and comprehensive investigation by the Homeland Security Committee into Secretary Mayorkas’ failed leadership and the national security and humanitarian crisis he created at our southern border. Read the interim reports on Mayorkas’ dereliction of duty, unprecedented cartel control of the Southwest border, the human and financial costs of the crisis, and the waste and abuse of taxpayer dollars.

“The consequences of Secretary Mayorkas’ refusal to enforce our laws at the southern border are immeasurable,” said Rep. Gimenez“His failure to protect our homeland has endangered our border patrol agents, led to the devastating loss of thousands to deadly fentanyl, and cost the lives of countless Americans and migrants at the hands of vicious criminals and cartel members. This severe and continued dereliction of duty demands accountability and House Republicans will not back down. This is why the Homeland Security Committee has taken on the solemn duty to consider the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas for his reckless actions and their consequences.”
