Daines Statement on Democrats’ Dismissal of Biden Border Chief’s Impeachment Trial

U.S. Senator Steve Daines issued the following statement today after every single Senate Democrat voted to block a full trial into the impeachment of President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas:

“The crisis at our southern border is the number one issue for Americans today, and rightfully so. It’s no longer an immigration debate, it is a severe national security threat. Each month more and more illegals who are on the FBI’s terror watch list stream across the border, with many coming from nations designated by President Biden’s own State Department as state sponsors of terrorism.

“And yet today Senate Democrats chose to sweep this crisis under the rug, ignore the Senate’s constitutional duty and deny the American people a trial into the impeachment of Secretary MayorkasEvery Senate Democrat proved that they would rather turn a blind eye to the failures of President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas than hold them accountable for endangering the safety of the American people.

“Montanans deserve transparency and accountability from this Administration for its disastrous role in the wide-open southern border crisis.”
