Barrasso: Democrats Refused to Do Our Constitutional Duty

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) today slammed Senate Democrats for unanimously voting to dismiss the Senate impeachment of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas without a full and fair trial as required by the United States Constitution.

“Chuck Schumer and the Democrats refused to do our Constitutional duty to hold an impeachment trial.

“Here’s what that means for the American people. Democrats do not want to secure the border. Every Senate Democrat wants to keep the border floodgates open. They voted to continue the record-breaking crime, death, and destruction. They dismissed the number one concern of all Americans — border security.

“During the Biden administration, almost 10 million illegal immigrants have poured across the southern border. Criminals, drug dealers, and terrorists are getting through. From Wyoming to New York, states across America are overwhelmed and overrun.

“Americans are outraged that Democrats are welcoming this invasion. Every Democrat will pay a heavy price in November for willfully refusing to end this border crisis.”
