Joe Biden initiated a crisis on the southern border by dismantling Donald Trump’s successful immigration policies.
But with polls showing the border is Biden’s Achilles Heel, Democrats are in panic.
And Joe Biden breathed a sigh of relief when this unexpected ally bailed him on the border crisis.
Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee passed two Articles of Impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the floor of the House for a full vote.
The articles charge Mayorkas with willfully refusing to enforce federal immigration law as evidenced by the 6.2 million illegal aliens Joe Biden smuggled into the United States since taking office and breach of public trust by making false statements to Congress and refusing to appear before the Committee.
Republicans only have a three vote margin in the House, and Speaker Johnson needs to maintain party unity if the GOP has any chance of holding the architect of Joe Biden’s open borders agenda accountable.
That task became more difficult when retiring Colorado Congressman Ken Buck, who’s rumored to be auditioning for a commentator role on CNN or MSNBC, came out on Chris Jansing’s MSNBC show and announced he was a firm “no” on impeaching Mayorkas.
Buck claimed that facilitating a record surge of illegal aliens into America “is not a high crime or misdemeanor.”
“Well, this is not a high crime or misdemeanor,” Buck began. “It’s not an impeachable offense. This is a policy difference. Let me from the outset say there is a crisis on the border. The law needs to be enforced. But if we start going down this path of impeachment with a cabinet official, we are opening a door as Republicans that we don’t want to open. The next president who is a Republican will face the same scrutiny from Democrats. It’s wrong, and we should not set this precedent.”
Jansing asked Buck if leadership sought to change his mind, to which Buck replied there was nothing anyone could say; he was firmly on the side of Mayorkas and Biden.
“Yeah, I’m not changing my mind,” Buck stated. “I believe I have done my due diligence and I am standing firm at this point on this. If there’s some new evidence, I’m happy to look at it, but I don’t believe there will be.”
Buck spent the last two years infuriating conservatives by defending the politically motivated criminal cases against Donald Trump.
Now Buck is defending Mayorkas rolling out a red carpet for millions of illegal aliens as not an impeachable offense.
Critics contend Buck knows that no liberal cable network will put an actual conservative on the air who supports Donald Trump or his agenda.
CNN and MSNBC will only hire Adam Kinzinger types.
And conservatives believe Buck is trying to show network executives at pro-Democrat cable channels he can be the type of Republican they can use on the air and trust to tell their liberal audiences exactly what it is they want to hear.
