On Monday, Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas called for the impeachment of Democratic President Joe Biden and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the ongoing border crisis.
The comments from Roy came in a tweet where he cited statistics showing the border crisis getting out of control.
“Total encounters: 205,029. Total known gotaways: 37,400,” Roy tweeted. “1.3 million for [Fiscal Year] 21 so far. Largest monthly encounter number since 2000.”
If true. the numbers would be the largest ever recorded by the DHS.
“What Joe Biden is doing at our border is impeachable,” political commentator Jesse Kelly responded. “It’s more impeachable than Watergate. This is an attack on the sovereignty of America and it’s coming from the Oval Office. Republicans should move to impeach after 2022.”
Roy responded to Kelly’s tweet, saying: “Co-sponsor. #ImpeachBiden #ImpeachMayorkas”
Roy further explained his call to impeach Biden and Mayorkas in a statement to the Daily Wire: “Over the past several months, President Biden and Sec. 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.”
Instead of taking control of the southern border, Biden is actually HELPING illegal immigrants cross the border.
The president is currently gearing up to use your tax dollars to send an army of lawyers to the southern border to help thousands of illegal aliens who are trying to enter the United States.
You heard that right. Joe Biden wants to spend millions of dollars to help criminals who are illegally entering the United States with your money.
Check out what Yahoo-reported via the Washington Examiner.
The Biden administration aims to spend millions of dollars to cover the cost of lawyers for migrants who have illegally entered the country, a prospect that has infuriated immigration restrictionists.
President Joe Biden proposed in his immigration plan released this week that Congress should make available $15 million to cover the costs of private lawyers for “families and vulnerable individuals,” with another $23 million to cover legal orientation programs administered by the Justice Department. The proposal, first outlined in Biden’s fiscal year 2022 budget, is the first time that an administration has proposed covering such an expense, and the White House has not shared additional information.
The $15 million in funding would only be enough to cover several thousand people, according to a study from the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. Immigration lawyers charge between $150 and $300 per hour.
Heritage senior fellow for homeland security Lora Ries last year examined deportation defense costs to provide a frame of reference for asylum cases and found each person spent between $2,000 and $10,000. At the lower end of $2,000 per person, 7,500 migrants would be able to have lawyers. On the higher end of $10,000 per person, just 1,500 people would be covered.
Over the past four months alone, 190,000 people illegally came across the southern border with a family member, and another 64,000 unaccompanied children arrived in America. The cost to the federal government of providing lawyers for those 250,000 family members and adults, at the $2,000 rate, would be approximately $500 million.
