The GOP-led House voted  216-209 on Tuesday in favor of advancing a resolution to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The final vote on the resolution is expected to take place Tuesday evening after almost three hours of debate on the House floor.

Mayorkas faces two charges over his handling of the southern border, including a "breach of trust" and a "willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law."

A handful of House GOP lawmakers have indicated that they would vote against the resolution on the floor, arguing that it would set a new precedent that could backfire on a future Republican administration. 

The current GOP majority in the chamber is 219-212.
