Mayorkas Claims Vindication [semi-satire]

By a vote of 214 for and 216 against, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas narrowly escaped being impeached by the US House of Representatives. Republicans had argued that his complete failure to interdict illegal immigration warranted his removal from office. However, every Democrat and three Republicans voted against impeachment.

Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo) voted against impeachment saying that "Secretary Mayorkas has completely failed at his job. He is incompetent. He is an embarrassment. And he will most likely be remembered as the worst secretary of Homeland Security in the history of the United States. However, he was only following the orders of President Biden who is also incompetent and an embarrassment."

Mayorkas claimed that the vote "vindicates my actions. As I've said many times, America needs these immigrants and the President has entrusted me to see that as many enter our country as is humanly possible. I am aware that many are skeptical of this assertion. They see impoverished and illiterate masses of foreigners being put up in expensive hotels, fed and cared for and wonder 'why do we need these people?' It is not obvious to ordinary Americans that these people are needed to cast the ballots that will ensure that former president Trump will not be successful in his quest to end our democracy by getting elected in November."

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn) confirmed Mayorkas' assessment. "The only way we can solve the immigration problem is by having Democrats hold the presidency and both houses of Congress like we did when Obama was first president in 2008," he insisted. "It was the absence of Republican interference in 2009 and 2010 that facilitated the initial steps of President Obama's plan to totally transform this country. It has been the presence of Republicans in the form of President Trump and fluctuating majorities in both houses of Congress that has slowed this transformation. If we hope to have a nation where everyone is united behind a common goal we must do whatever we can to ensure that Republicans never again hold the power to either delay this transformation or force us to compromise."
