In a bipartisan move, the House rejects "Marjorie Taylor Greene's attempt to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas."
Greene's bold move introduces a "privileged" resolution, aiming to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas.
The House voted 209-201 against the impeachment, referring the resolution to the House Homeland Security Committee.
Eight Republicans, including Cliff Bentz and Ken Buck, joined Democrats, contributing to the resolution's defeat.
Despite the setback, Marjorie Taylor Greene expresses frustration and hints at the possibility of reintroducing the resolution in the future.
The Department of Homeland Security swiftly dismissed Greene's impeachment effort, emphasizing the need to focus on critical national security priorities.
The vote highlights complex GOP dynamics on immigration and border security, signaling a shift in focus towards President Biden's impeachment over Cabinet members.
