Republicans aim to take a second swing at Mayorkas impeachment

By David Morgan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives will try again on Tuesday to impeach Democratic President Joe Biden‘s top border official, a week after their first attempt ended in a humiliating legislative defeat for Republican Speaker Mike Johnson.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stands accused by House Republicans of failing to stem record flows of migrants across the U.S.-Mexico border, in what Donald Trump views as a top issue in his campaign to unseat Biden in the November presidential election.
