Rep. Josh Brecheen, a Republican from Oklahoma, emphasized on Newsmax the constitutional remedy available to federal lawmakers to address public servants like Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, whom Brecheen believes are failing their obligations to the American people.

During an appearance on “National Report,” Brecheen highlighted the importance of holding a trial following the House’s delivery of articles of impeachment against Mayorkas to the Senate, despite the expected outcome of dismissal by the Democrat-controlled upper chamber.

“In the days of our founding era, impeachment was intended to serve as a bridle upon executive servants of the government,” Brecheen stated, referring to Federalist Papers, No. 65.

He expressed frustration with what he sees as Mayorkas disregarding the rule of law, particularly regarding immigration policies.

Brecheen referenced the Immigration and Nationality Act, passed in the 1950s, which stipulates the detention of individuals entering the country illegally until due legal proceedings. He criticized Mayorkas for what he sees as circumventing both federal statute and the Constitution.

Brecheen likened impeachment to the use of a bridle on a horse, explaining its function to rein in and control. He argued that the founding generation understood the concept well, given their familiarity with horses as a common mode of transportation at the time.

Brecheen also challenged Mayorkas’s characterization of the southern border situation as a result of a global migration trend, insisting instead that it’s a consequence of the current administration’s policies.

He criticized what he sees as an open invitation for illegal immigration, attributing the influx of migrants to the perception that the borders are easily penetrable under the current administration’s policies.
