Texas Senator Ted Cruz unloaded on the Biden Administration in a recent appearance on Newsmax; Cruz says “We need real congressional oversight. We need hearings, we need subpoenas.”
He also believes that both DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Attorney General Merrick Garland should be impeached for “gross dereliction of duty.”
From The Post Millenial:
When talking about the Biden administration’s open border crisis on Eric Bolling’s The Balance, the senator said “We need real congressional oversight. We need hearings, we need subpoenas. I believe Congress should impeach Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of Homeland Security.”
Cruz’s sentiment reflects that of a letter he sent to Mayorkas in early October, alongside South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. The letter was to warn Mayorkas that his “gross dereliction of duty” in regards to the mismanagement of the southern border could be “grounds for impeachment.”
“Your failure to faithfully enforce this nation’s immigration laws and willful blindness to the very real humanitarian crisis at our southern border amounts to a gross dereliction of duty and a violation of your oath of office. Historically high levels of illegal immigration and illicit drug trafficking demonstrate that our southern border is open for every kind of public health and national security threat imaginable. Despite the heroic efforts by the men and women of Border Patrol, who operate with very little support from Washington, D.C., you have failed to achieve any semblance of operational control of the southern border. We have grave concerns about what this failure means for both national security and the health and safety of American citizens. These failures cannot go unaddressed, and your actions cannot be unaccounted for. The American people deserve better.”
“This is gross dereliction of duty and, if not corrected swiftly, could provide grounds for impeachment,” they added.
