In Washington, D.C., Senate Democrats Wednesday voted unanimously to shut down the Senate trial of President Joe Biden’s impeached Homeland Security Chief Alejandro Mayorkas.

Republican U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming said, “Chuck Schumer and the Democrats refused to do our Constitutional duty to hold an impeachment trial.”

Two votes were held. The first ended with 51 Democrats against and 48 Republicans for moving ahead with one Republican not voting.

The second vote was delayed for a time as Republican senators proposed motions to extend the trial period. Each proposal was defeated along party lines with the total each time 51 to 49.

“It is a felony.” Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana said as he proposed to delay the vote.

With the numbers on their side, senate Democrats wiped out the second article of impeachment.

Afterward Sen. Kennedy put it this way; during an appearance on Fox News.

Kennedy is among Republican lawmakers who say Democrats want to minimize public awareness of damage Mayorkas has caused by refusing to enforce immigration laws. The evidence is devastating,” Kennedy said. “It will gut them like a fish.”

In a written statement, Senator Barrasso said, “During the Biden administration, almost 10 million illegal immigrants have poured across the southern border. Criminals, drug dealers, and terrorists are getting through. From Wyoming to New York, states across America are overwhelmed and overrun.”

Wyoming’s junior senator Cynthia Lummis summarized the actions in the U.S. Senate. “By not holding a full trial, Senate Democrats broke from more than 200 years of tradition and silenced the people of Wyoming by denying them the opportunity to hold Secretary Mayorkas accountable for his systemic and deliberate failures to uphold our immigration laws.”

Mayorkas has repeatedly explained that he supports wide-open migration at the border because of his migrant parents, his sympathy for migrants. He has also justified his policies saying his priorities are above the law and that the “needs” of U.S. business supersede the cost to ordinary Americans or the impact on U.S. children.

Following the vote to shut down the impeachment process, Republican Senator Mitch McConnel scolded senate Democrats for short-circuiting the legal process against Mayorkas.

Following the dismissal of the articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, Representative Harriet Hageman released a statement saying,
“Never in the history of the United States has an impeachment been dismissed without any evidence being allowed to be presented…until today.” All 51 Democrats desperately want to avoid responsibility for the 11 million illegals that have invaded our nation since January 21, 2021. To end the invasion, vote them out on November 5, 2024.”
