Rep Chip Roy is urging his colleagues in the House to impeach the Department of Homeland Security for both malfeasance and non-feasance in office. During his confirmation hearing, six Republicans voted for him despite his past in helping Democrats bring in Chinese investors who were previously turned down because of the security risk they represented in order to aid Democratic politicians.
Mayorkas approved Chinese on EB-5 visas for Terry McAuliffe’s MyCar company. In order to get an EB-5 visa you must invest a significant amount of money in an established American business. Besides McAuliffe, Tony Rodham, brother of Hillary was involved in the enterprise. McAuliffe received huge sums of cash, but only built one car for show. The Chinese sued him for fraud. McAuliffe got to keep the cash.
Additionally, he approved EB-5 visas to Chinese investors as a favor to Harry Reid to inject cash into casinos owned by his large donors.
“The juxtaposition of Mr. Mayorkas’ communication with external stakeholders on specific matters outside the normal procedures, coupled with favorable action that deviated from the regulatory scheme designed to ensure fairness and evenhandedness in adjudicating benefits, created an appearance of favoritism and special access,” the Inspector General’s report concluded.
The DHS IG report specifically focused on allegations of special treatment afforded to a Las Vegas casino project championed by Sen. Harry Reid, then the Senate majority leader, and an electric car enterprise led by Terry McAuliffe, who is now Virginia governor, and involving Anthony Rodham, the brother of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“It is shocking,” Sen. Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican said at the time. “Particularly when you have F.B.I. and other law enforcement agencies that are saying national security could be compromised or is being compromised — that’s enough for us to be concerned.”
As the head of the DHS, Mayorkas has been a total disgrace. He has rapidly dismantled the programs instituted by President Trump to secure our Southern border. On top of that, he has spent billions in benefits to the illegals, flying them all over the country and footing the bill for most of their resettlement costs.
Does Rep Roy really believe Mayorkas will be impeached? No, I don’t think so. He just wants to force a vote so that border Democrats have to take a stand on the massive illegal immigration initiated by the Democratic party. That could cost Democrats quite a few seats in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico.
But, Mayorkas really should be impeached and imprisoned.
