Republican Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall will release a video Monday going after Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for his role in the ongoing border crisis and continued lack of action ahead of his impeachment trial.

The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the video, which included several different clips from the news regarding the border crisis and the influx of illegal migrants crossing the border every day. The video also mentions the terrorists who have been apprehended trying to cross into the U.S. and clips of Mayorkas saying he is doing everything he can to protect the border.

“Secretary Mayorkas is complicit in aiding and abetting Joe Biden’s historic border invasion. He has failed to uphold his oath of office and compromised the safety and security of every American,” Marshall told the Caller. “Right now, the cartel has more control of the border than Alejandro Mayorkas; he isn’t just derelict in his duties, he’s complicit in endangering the safety and security of every single American.”

“The Democrats are so afraid of the political backlash a trial would have on the 2024 elections that they are abandoning their responsibility and undermining our Constitution to take unprecedented measures to block Sec. Mayorkas’ impeachment trial,” Marshall continued. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Sen. Roger Marshall Rips Mayorkas, Says He Has Lied ‘Multiple Times Under Oath’ To Congress)


“But make no mistake: Come November, “WE THE PEOPLE’ will speak loudly. The American people will not forget the betrayal. Chuck Schumer and his radical caucus are very clearly worried about the next election and not the national security threat our wide-open borders pose to the sovereignty of our nation,” he added. “This week, if Senate Democrats skirt their responsibility and block this trial, we should hold them accountable at the ballot box. The people of Montana, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Nevada must make their voices heard.” (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Sen.

In January, Marshall ripped Mayorkas before introducing a resolution that states the U.S. Senate should not have confidence in Mayorkas.

In a statement to the Caller before taking the Senate floor, Marshall said Mayorkas has lied several times before Congress under oath and said Mayorkas does not have “operational control” of the U.S. border. Marshall added that the Homeland Security Secretary has to be held accountable for his lack of action with the ongoing border crisis.

Mayorkas has long been a target of Republican criticism as border crossings and illegal immigrant apprehensions have hit record highs under the Biden administration.
