Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas narrowly avoided impeachment on Tuesday by a slim margin of two votes. The move to impeach him was driven by Republicans who criticized him for his handling of what they termed a humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Mayorkas has been under scrutiny for the surge in the number of South and Central Americans attempting to enter the United States. The impeachment attempt did not gather enough support, and Mayorkas remains in his position as U.S. President Joe Biden’s immigration chief.
