Rep. Lauren Boebert on Tuesday announced articles of impeachment against President Biden over the southern border crisis, saying the president should be removed from office for failing to comply with laws regulating illegal immigration.
Colorado Republicans introduced two articles of impeachment, accusing Biden of abuse of power and dereliction of duty for facilitating the largest surge in illegal immigration in U.S. history along with record levels of fentanyl.
“President Biden endangers the safety of the United States and the health and safety of the American people. said in the text.
Her resolution is just the latest resolution to target Mr. Biden. Similar resolutions have been introduced by Republicans Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (Georgia), Rep. Bill Posey (Florida), and Rep. Andrew Ogles (Tennessee).
Other resolutions impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorcas have also been introduced, and resolutions targeting FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland have also been released.
Although there has been no action in the House yet, the case against Mayorcas has begun to be scrutinized, including by a committee hearing on whether he performed his border duties faithfully.
Impeachment requires a majority vote in the House, while conviction and removal require a two-thirds vote in the Senate.
With Democrats in control of the House, actually convicting the president and officials of the Biden administration is incalculable.
But some Republicans are still eager to introduce a House impeachment resolution against the top government official.
