Mike Lee Demands Senate Trial for Impeached DHS Secretary Mayorkas

February 13, 2024

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the statement below following the U.S. House of Representatives vote to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas:

The Senate failed miserably to ensure our southern border was secured before sending Ukraine billions in American tax dollars. We cannot fail to uphold our constitutional duty and conduct an impeachment trial for Secretary Mayorkas, who has ignored his duty to protect our country. Chuck Schumer is trying to sweep this travesty under the rug by violating the constitution and foregoing a trial. Republican leadership cannot stand idly by and let him.”
