(TheRedWire.com) – On Tuesday, the House GOP is going to be attempting once again to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by bringing the vote to the floor again. Their previous attempt had failed after three Republican members had sided with the Democrats against the impeachment.

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) has now returned to the House after undergoing treatment for blood cancer, which could provide the House GOP with an extra vote helping them secure enough votes to pass the measure, even if all the Democrats are present. 

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) posted a photo with Scalise with a caption about them returning to “the trenches this week.” 

The Republicans had not expected to lose the vote last week, but Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) had left his hospital bed in order to vote against the resolution effectively killing it. Rep. Blake Moore (R-Utah) who also opted to switch his vote led to the final vote being 214-216.

For the Republicans, it is a priority to move forward with the impeachment which has been pushed by the conservative win of the party. However, the impeachment articles are unusual as they claim that Mayorkas has violated immigration law by not detaining a large number of migrants and argued that he had “violated the public trust.”

Immigration law experts have argued that the implementation of statutes by Mayorkas was not unlawful. Similarly on Sunday during an appearance on “Meet the Press” Mayorkas claimed that the allegations against him are completely baseless.
