Mayorkas Impeachment

House Republicans sent two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the Senate yesterday in a ceremonial walk across the Capitol, forcing the upper chamber to kick off a trial. 

Mayorkas was impeached in February (see charges) for allegedly violating immigration laws over his handling of the southern US border, which saw a record number of migrant crossings last year. Mayorkas is the second Cabinet member in US history to be impeached. The Democratic-led Senate is expected to either dismiss or table the charges against him. Senators will be sworn in as jurors today, though it is unclear how the process will play out. 

In separate Capitol Hill news, Rep. Thomas Massie (R, KY-4) said yesterday he plans to join Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R, GA-14) in her motion to remove House Speaker Mike Johnson (R, LA-4) from the speakership. Greene filed the motion last month but has not called for a vote. Johnson said he wouldn't resign.
