HOUSE REPUBLICANS VOTE TO IMPEACH SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY, ALEJANDRO MAYORKAS

Yesterday evening, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas. The GALEO Impact Fund is deeply concerned about the vote as there are urgent matters that desperately require the attention of Congress including addressing international crises throughout the world, seriously working towards comprehensive immigration reform, lowering the cost of living for working Americans, and eliminating inequities that disproportionately impact Latino communities.

“Wasting time and taxpayer dollars on an impeachment process that is both unnecessary and doomed to fail in the Senate signals to the American people, and the world, that this Congress is dysfunctional and more interested in scoring political points than improving the lives of working people and their families,” says Kyle Gomez-Leineweber, Director of Policy and Advocacy of GALEO Impact Fund. “We call on our elected leaders to end this hyper-partisan and superfluous effort to remove Secretary Mayorkas from office in the midst of the ongoing border crisis. Voters want solutions to the issues we are facing as a nation and this impeachment does not provide a solution.”

The GALEO Impact Fund calls on our members of Congress and the Biden Administration to come together, engage constituents and relevant stakeholders, and craft meaningful legislation to tangibly address the myriad of problems facing Latino Americans and a workable, humane solution to our broken immigration system.
