Sen. Tom Cotton slammed the Biden administration’s response — or lack thereof — to the ongoing border crisis Tuesday, saying Republicans could launch an impeachment inquiry over the matter.
During an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, the conservative personality asked Cotton (R-Ark.) whether a GOP-controlled House of Representatives could “actually bring up a serious, perhaps impeachment inquiry just on this issue of the border alone.”
“No, Laura, I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility because of all of the abuses of the Biden administration,” Cotton responded. “I think what the Department of Homeland Security has done to undermine American sovereignty, to open up our borders to undercut wages and jobs for American workers is probably the most egregious, and they’re open about it.
“[DHS] Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has said it in speeches, that being illegally present in the country is no longer even a priority for deportation,” Cotton added. “They admit these things publicly.”
On Monday, US Customs and Border Protection revealed that it had recorded 178,840 illegal immigrant encounters at the US-Mexico border in December, up 2 percent from the November number of 174,744. The agency added that it had apprehended 135,040 unique individuals attempting to enter the US in December, a 5 percent increase over November.
