House clears way to advance impeachment articles of DHS Secretary Mayorkas

House lawmakers on Tuesday cleared the way to advance an impeachment resolution against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The 215-207 floor vote came as the House adopted the "rule" to manage the debate on the measure. 

The resolution affirms that Mayorkas "has willfully and systematically refused to comply with Federal immigration laws" by having repeatedly violated laws enacted by Congress regarding immigration and border security during his tenure. 

If the vote goes through, Mayorkas would be the first Biden Cabinet official impeached in nearly 150 years.
