House Republicans Are Reportedly Gearing Up to Impeach a Key Biden Administration Official:
House Republicans have been unhappy about the Biden administration’s approach to illegal immigration ever since President Joe Biden took office.
His orders reversing the policies of his predecessor, Donald Trump, led to a border crisis in which more than a million migrants — including record numbers of unaccompanied children — have entered the United States.
Things are expected to get even worse next month with the administration’s decision to stop enforcing Title 42, a rule Trump instituted during the pandemic allowing the U.S. to turn away illegal immigrants on the grounds that they could be bringing COVID-19 into the country.
Border officials are bracing for a flood of migrants when enforcement of the provision ends.
Conservatives in the House apparently have seen enough. The Republican Study Committee, which represents more than 150 conservative members, is fixing its sights on the man in charge of border security and immigration under Biden. --->READ MORE HERE

Behind the scenes: The largest body of conservative House members — the Republican Study Committee, which represents more than 150 members — is laying the groundwork to push for the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. --->READ MORE HERE
