Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., reintroduced articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Wednesday.

"While some members, like Tom McClintock, want to bloviate endlessly while imagining themselves wearing a powdered wig, the American people want action. These members whine about 'due process' while protecting Mayorkas from facing accountability for his violation of our border security laws," Greene said in a post on X.

Earlier this month, 8 Republicans had joined Democrats in blocking the previous effort to impeach Mayorkas.

Greene argued that "impeachment is due process," given that it would put Mayorkas before the Senate to face trial.

"We’ve seen the evidence of him breaking the law. It’s time for the Senate to try him for it," she wrote. "Today, I reintroduced my articles of impeachment against Secretary Mayorkas because impeachment is EXACTLY what the founders intended for the House to do when a member of the executive branch intentionally violates the laws written by the legislative branch."
