The results were predictable: Within weeks, record numbers of people were flowing illegally across our southwestern border, and smuggling of deadly fentanyl produced by Mexican cartels using Chinese ingredients rose dramatically as well.
Since Biden is the one nominally 'in charge' of the Executive Branch, then all of his lousy border policies befell his hapless Department of Homeland Security chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, who -- rather than quit in protest, has gleefully carried out the order to essentially keep our borders open in a way that no serious country, let alone the world's predominant superpower, would ever put up with.
And so, because of that, Alejandro faces almost certain impeachment once Republicans return to power next month after winning a small majority in the midterm elections.
On Monday, 20 GOP lawmakers demanded that the House move to impeach Mayorkas after Republicans take over in January. The group, led by GOP Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, has accused the DHS boss of refusing to take the escalating situation along the border seriously.
"Secretary Mayorkas has released more than 1 million illegal aliens into the country," said Biggs, according to Fox News. "Most of these released illegal aliens will never be heard from again."
The impeachment call by GOP lawmakers comes on the heels of a video posted to social media by Fox News' immigration reporter Bill Melugin with the caption: “A huge migrant caravan of over 1,000 people crossed illegally into El Paso, TX last night, making it the largest single group we have ever seen. The city of El Paso reports Border Patrol now has over 5,000 in custody & has released hundreds to city streets.”

Countless Republicans are also calling for Biden to be impeached for his failures at the border.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) also accused the DHS secretary of being dishonest in testimony under oath to Congress in which he claimed that the U.S. southern border was operationally under control.
"He regularly lies to the American people, claiming that the southern border is closed," Boebert said. "I've been there. It's wide open."
In addition to the GOP lawmakers, actor James Woods blasted Biden over his border policies. In a pair of now-deleted tweets, Woods responded to Melugin's video: “Democrats are allowing the destruction of our Republic by an unfettered invasion of our non-existent southern border. Shame on this president, and shame on any American who voted for this and now turns a blind eye. The open border policy of the Biden administration is rotting our Republic from within. With the unceasing invasion, ignored daily, comes the drug plague and its unadulterated horrors. Shame on this president and his cackling ‘border czar’ VP.'”

Matthew Kolken, an immigration lawyer, then responded to Woods: “As a deportation lawyer with 25 years … experience I can attest that there is virtually no enforcement of the immigration law in the interior of the country, which has created an irresistible magnet.”
The truth is Biden is the one who ought to be impeached for purposely destroying border security and allowing immigration laws to be violated with impunity. But he won't be convicted even if a Republican House does impeach him because Democrats control the Senate.
