Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) introduced a motion on Wednesday to compel a vote on the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Greene referred her impeachment motion to the floor as a privileged resolution, a procedural maneuver that necessitates a response from the leadership regarding the motion within a span of two legislative days.

This is the second time in the month that the Republican zealot has attempted to remove the Biden administration official from office.

Approximately two weeks have passed since the House voted to refer Greene’s impeachment resolution to the Homeland Security Committee, thereby preventing a direct vote on the floor.

By voting to refer the legislation, eight Republicans joined every Democrat, dealing a setback to Greene and her effort to remove Mayorkas from office.

The Georgia Republican delivered remarks to those opponents shortly after Wednesday’s second vote was necessitated.

“The eight Republicans that voted with the Democrats claimed that they wanted it to follow proper House procedure and go through the committee. But my articles of impeachment have been sitting in committee for over six months, and they’ve been basically sitting there collecting dust, not being picked up.” Greene said.

“I think the American people will not tolerate Republicans continuing to vote it down. They have no excuse. Americans are dying every single day. The border is the issue you hear from everybody, even New York is falling apart over the migrant crisis. So I don’t think they’re gonna tolerate this from them.” she continued.
