Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kansas, on Tuesday announced that he is introducing a resolution to trigger a vote of no confidence in Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas — just as the DHS chief was facing a grilling from lawmakers at a top committee.

“Mr. Secretary, you are derelict in your duties. I would be derelict to not do something about this. And that’s why I have a draft resolution here that I intend to introduce in the coming days that would require the Senate to take a vote of no confidence on Secretary Mayorkas,” he said as he questioned Mayorkas in a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing.

“I stand at the ready to receive articles of impeachment from the House and conduct an impeachment trial in this body. But in the meantime, I think the Senate must show our colleagues in the House that we’ve had enough of the failures from the Department of Homeland Security and believe that the secretary is not fit to faithfully carry out the duties of his office,” he said.
