US House sends impeachment of Biden border official to Senate

17/4/2024 6:08
        The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday delivered two articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden's top border security official to the Democratic-majority Senate, which is expected to quickly defeat the effort.
        
        House Republican "managers" who hope to argue their case for removing Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas from office read aloud to the Senate their charges of failing to enforce U.S. immigration laws and lying to Congress.
        
        The politically charged effort comes following record-setting levels of illegal immigration last year. Voters cite immigration as a top concern ahead of the Nov. 5 presidential and congressional elections.
        
        The 100 senators are due on Wednesday to be sworn in as jurors for a trial that could take at least a week.
        
        However, top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer is expected to try to end it before it starts.
