Kaine Statement on Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Mayorkas

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement regarding the articles of impeachment sent by the U.S. House of Representatives to the Senate:

“This is the textbook definition of a political stunt designed to distract from congressional Republicans’ failure to properly address issues at the border. After months of negotiations led to a solid and bipartisan border reform package, Republicans abandoned their own work product after Donald Trump criticized it. Then, they decided to impeach the same person, Alejandro Mayorkas, who they had relied on to craft the bipartisan deal. It’s clear that many of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle would rather score political points on the border at every turn than be a part of the solution. I stand ready to work with anyone who wants to actually work together in a bipartisan way to secure our border and fix our broken immigration system.”
