    A panel of the GOP-led House released on Sunday two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over his handling of the border crisis.

    The first article says Mayorkas has "willfully and systemically refused to comply with Federal immigration laws," and the second claims the secretary "breached the public trust" by making false statements and "knowingly obstructed lawful oversight" of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    Members of the Homeland Security Committee are scheduled to meet on Tuesday morning to consider the articles of impeachment. If one or both articles pass through the panel, Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said the House would vote on whether to impeach Mayorkas "as soon as possible thereafter."

    "Having exhausted all other options to hold Secretary Mayorkas accountable, it is unmistakably clear that Congress must exercise its constitutional duty and impeach him," Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) said in a post to X on Sunday.

    House Republicans face a tight margin as they contend with vacancies and absences within their own ranks, but Green said last weekend that he believes there will be enough support to ultimately impeach Mayorkas when it comes to a House floor vote. Still, the effort faces long odds in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

    Rep. Bennie Thompson (R-MS), the top Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee, encouraged the House to reject what he called a "sham" resolution. "What is glaringly missing from these articles is any real charge or even a shred of evidence of high crimes or misdemeanors - the Constitutional standard for impeachment," he added in a statement on Sunday.

    When pressed on "Fox News Sunday" on the prospect of the impeachment articles going nowhere in the Senate, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said "I think it's important we respond to the American people" after pinning millions of border encounters, including people on the terrorist watchlist, and fentanyl deaths on Mayorkas.

    There is a bipartisan appetite in the House for changing the status quo, even if there is disagreement on how to address the border crisis amid a surge in crossings and blue cities around the country getting overwhelmed with migrants. Fourteen House Democrats recently broke ranks and joined with most Republicans in voting to denounce the Biden administration's "open-borders policies."

    Several interim reports have been released during the Homeland Security Committee's probe into Mayorkas, and hearings wrapped up earlier this month. Members of the Senate are working to hash out a border deal, with the help of Mayorkas, while the impeachment effort comes to a resolution.

    DHS released a memo to reporters on Sunday that argued Mayorkas has "upheld and enforced" border security and immigration laws and seeks to refute "false allegations" of lying about operational control during testimony and dereliction of duty.

    "This markup is just more of the same political games from House Homeland Security Committee (CHS) Republicans. They don't want to fix the problem; they want to campaign on it," the memo said.

    "That's why they have undermined efforts to achieve bipartisan solutions and ignored the facts, legal scholars and experts, and even the Constitution itself in their quest to baselessly impeach Secretary Mayorkas," it added. "This farce of an impeachment is a distraction from other vital national security priorities and the work Congress should be doing to actually fix our broken immigration laws."

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
