Calls for DHS Secretary Mayorkas to resign have increased

Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) has renewed her demand that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas resigns from his position during an interview with FBN host Cheryl Casone on Monday.

According to a report by Breitbart News, the Florida Republican claimed that “all options” were on the table.

“I want to get reaction to all of this from Republican Florida Congresswoman Kat Cammack, who is calling for DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to step down,” Casone said.

“And, Congresswoman, Kevin McCarthy echoing the same words as you are, that he should step down. And is it impeachment if he doesn’t?”

“Absolutely,” Cammack replied. “I think all options are on the table. When you have lied to Congress, you have lied to the American people.

“You have, quite frankly, ignored the fact that there is a humanitarian, a national security and public health crisis playing out on our Southwest border, you have either been negligent in your duties, or you have just chosen not to do them.”

“Neither is acceptable,” she continued. “So we’re going to do the investigation that is necessary. And if Alejandro Mayorkas does not step down before January 3, then we will take those investigations, and we will lay the groundwork for impeachment.

“That’s what’s on the table. And that’s what needs to be done. The border has to be secured.”

Mayorkas made headlines Wednesday when Sen. Josh Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, disclosed that recently acquired papers appeared to refute Mayorkas’ testimony from May regarding the contentious Disinformation Governance Board, as Fox News reported.

Hawley claimed that the Board’s plans to collaborate with Big Tech were “much more broad” than DHS or the Biden administration had previously recognized in an open letter to Mayorkas.

The breadth of the Board was described in documents revealed by Hawley and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, earlier this year after they were obtained by a whistleblower.

Despite Mayorkas’ testimony on May 4, 2022, claiming “the board has not yet met,” Hawley claimed that the new papers demonstrate that the Board’s Steering Group met on February 4, 2022, and that they continued to meet on a weekly basis.

According to Hawley, the new records also show that Big Tech was more directly involved in censorship practices than previously believed.

When the New York Post’s report on Hunter Biden’s laptop was suppressed, Nathaniel Gleicher of Meta, who oversaw the organization’s security policy, was in charge of the company’s plans to meet with the Disinformation Board, according to Hawley.
