Eight Republicans joined Democrats last night to slow an effort to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, report Melissa Quinn and Caitlin Yilek of CBS News. The House voted 209-201 to refer the impeachment measure, introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia), to committee. The House in effect blocked a resolution to impeach Mayorkas over his handling of the situation along the U.S.-Mexico border. It instead voted to refer the matter to a committee.
The impeachment measure includes an article that accuses Mayorkas of engaging "in a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with the laws" of the United States.
