US House to Deliver Homeland Secretary Mayorkas Impeachment to Senate April 10

The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives will deliver two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the Senate on April 10, House Speaker Mike Johnson said Thursday.
国会众议院议长迈克·约翰逊(Mike Johnson)周四(3月28日)表示,共和党控制的众议院将于4月10日向参议院递交两项针对国土安全部长亚历杭德罗·马约卡斯(Alejandro Mayorkas)的弹劾条款。

Mayorkas, who Republicans blame for record flows of migrants across the U.S.-Mexico border, was narrowly impeached by the House last month on allegations that he has not enforced U.S. immigration laws and has made false statements to Congress.

Mayorkas, part of Democratic President Joe Biden's cabinet, has said he does not bear responsibility for the border situation, blaming it instead on a broken U.S. immigration system that Congress has not been able to fix.
民主党籍总统乔·拜登(Joe Biden)的内阁成员马约卡斯表示,他对边境局势不负有责任,而是将其归咎于国会未能解决的失灵的美国移民体系。

"We will present to you upon the Senate’s return, on April 10, 2024, the duly passed articles of impeachment," Johnson and 11 Republican impeachment managers informed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in a letter on Thursday.
“我们将在2024年4月10日参议院休会结束后向您提交以正当程序通过的弹劾条款,”约翰逊和11名共和党弹劾经理人在周四的一封信中告知参议院多数党领袖查克·舒默(Chuck Schumer)。

The House and Senate are currently on a two-week recess.

"We urge you to schedule a trial of the matter expeditiously," they wrote.

Federal officials, including presidents, who are impeached by the House are subject to a trial in the Senate to determine whether they should be removed from office.

Schumer's office issued a statement saying that senators will be sworn in as trial jurors the day after the articles are delivered.

However, the Democratic-led chamber is highly unlikely to vote to remove Mayorkas from office.

The House voted twice before impeaching Mayorkas on a vote of 214-213, after an initial vote failed. Democrats and a handful of Republicans opposed the action.
