Tonight, Senator Mike Braun spoke on the Senate floor to call for a full impeachment trial of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Reports are that Senate Democratic leadership are intending to table the impeachment motion this week to avoid a full trial.

Senator Braun said tonight that they are trying to “sweep this under the rug” to avoid talking about what President Joe Biden did to open the border in his first days in office, and the steps taken by Secretary Mayorkas to “catch-and-release” illegal aliens into the country.

Senator Braun will make a point of order during the proceedings that Secretary Mayorkas should, by rules of the Senate, be issued a summons on the impeachment charge of breaking the law by releasing illegal aliens into the United States.

Senator Braun previously called on Secretary Mayorkas to resign over the border crisis.
