Arizona GOP Senate candidate Sheriff Mark Lamb slammed the U.S. Senate for rejecting the impeachment articles against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas without a trial. 

"I think we all knew what the Senate's outcome would be," Lamb said on the Friday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "But I think they had a responsibility to the American people to hear it and ... listen to the other side and why the House passed it up. I think every American should be angry with the Senate for not hearing it out."

Earlier this year, the GOP-controlled House voted to impeach Mayorkas over his handling of the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. 

After the House sent the impeachment articles to the Senate, the Senate killed both articles without a trial or debate earlier this week. 

Lamb explained that the open southern border has negatively impacted many Americans and local sheriffs. 

"I can tell you firsthand this has caused some major problems for us, and not just me, sheriffs all across this country and law enforcement across this country," Lamb said. "[Mayorkas] has completely failed to do it."

Lamb is the sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona, and has prioritized tighter border security, ending the fentanyl crisis, and supporting law enforcement as issues for his Senate campaign.
