House Republicans are intensifying their efforts to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. 

Republicans released a 55-page report that blames the Biden administration for high migration levels at the U.S.-Mexico border. 

In an interview with reporters, Homeland Security Chairman Mark E. Green said the report is the first phase in a “five-phase deep dive” into what caused high migration levels, Roll Call reports 

The Biden administration has “proven directly responsible for the historic border crisis still ongoing today,” the report concludes. 

Mayorkas “bears particular responsibility for the devastating crisis that has unfolded and expanded on his watch and due to his policies,” according to the report. 

The plan is to hand over the findings to the Judiciary Committee, which would be tasked with launching impeachment proceedings. The investigation, Green estimates, could last 11 to 12 weeks. 

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., dismissed the effort as “a new low” and a “sham.”

“It’s obvious this hearing isn’t really about border security. It’s not even really about Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas or the Department of Homeland Security. It’s about partisan politics,” Thompson said. “It’s about House Republican leadership catering to its most extreme MAGA members, who want to impeach someone, anyone at all.”
