Biden’s Immigration Dereliction Deserves Impeachment
A Republican wants Biden impeached over his failure enforce U.S. border law.
President Joe Biden should be impeached for dereliction of duty in enforcing our nation’s borders — or so at least one Republican has concluded. As the border crisis continues to spin out of control, with more than one million illegals caught crossing the southern border since Biden took the reins, Republicans have had enough.
Representative Chip Roy (R-TX) has called for Biden’s impeachment, stating, “Over the past several months, President Biden and [DHS] Sec. [Alejandro] Mayorkas have blatantly and consistently refused to do their constitutional duty to take care that the immigration laws be faithfully executed, as required by Article II, endangering countless American and foreign lives in the process.”
We noted last week that Americans have been paying a high price for illegal immigration. As just one example, criminal aliens have cost the lives of more than 1,200 people over the last decade in Texas alone.
And just as Donald Trump had finally made significant headway in securing the southern border and stemming the flow of illegal immigration — in fact, a new estimate says the illegal immigrant population actually dropped under Trump — Biden reversed course and opened the gates wide open. The resulting run on the border has gotten so bad that even Democrats in the border states have called on the Biden administration to stop the flow and secure the border.
Roy’s call for impeaching Biden is entirely legitimate given the president’s dereliction of duty. Unfortunately, Democrats so thoroughly politicized and debased the useful and just tool of impeachment with their unfounded and dubious claims against Trump — all in desperate attempts to see him removed from office — that any Republican raising the call against Biden is seen as merely engaging in political tit-for-tat.
However, whereas the Democrats’ impeachment calls against Trump were based almost entirely upon willfully nefarious misinterpretations of his comments, Biden’s policy actions are beyond the pale. Biden has intentionally acted against the sovereignty of the U.S. for politically calculated reasons. He’s pandering to the extreme radicals of his party’s base — radicals who object to borders and the enforcement of them.
Meanwhile, despite what the Biden administration has claimed, that it has the border fully under control, leave it to Mexico’s leftist president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, to expose that lie. “It must be said that the border is open, not completely, but it has never been completely closed,” he recently stated. “However, we need to open this one, and it is an issue that we are going to discuss today.”
