Impeaching Biden over border crisis is Republicans’ ‘only tool,’ Andrew McCarthy says

National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy published an op-ed Saturday claiming ‘the only thing’ that can establish comprehensive security at the southern border is a presidential impeachment.

McCarthy asserted that the legislature and courts are unable to address illegal immigration, necessitating Republicans to threaten removing President Biden from office.

Republicans moving to impeach Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas are aiming ‘too low,’ he wrote in the piece.

‘You probably don’t want to hear this again, but at this stage, the only thing that might — might — turn the tide and establish a semblance of security at the southern border would be for House Republicans to impeach President Biden for first causing the border crisis and then, over the course of the next two years, willfully exacerbating it, not out of incompetence but because it’s what his radical base demands,’ the National Review Institute senior fellow wrote.

McCarthy claimed that the Supreme Court is ‘powerless’ to correct the massive influx of illegal migrants crossing the southern border, leaving the problem to be dealt with by individual states.

‘For over a century, judicial rulings and congressional Democrats have nullified their powers to uphold the rule of law against trespassers,’ McCarthy continued. ‘If the Court won’t help them, the states must rely on Biden, and it is Biden who has quite intentionally left the border defenseless, knowing full well that the states would be besieged.’

Acknowledging that the Democrat-controlled Senate would be unlikely to allow an actual impeachment, McCarthy made the case that impeachment articles could bring greater attention to the border issue.

‘That is the last thing to which Biden and Democrats want attention called,’ he asserted. ‘Border security is an 80–20 issue, favoring not so much Republicans (who are far from uniformly solid on upholding immigration law) as individual candidates and officials who demonstrate seriousness about it, most of whom happen to be Republicans.’

McCarthy concluded the article asserting that articles of impeachment were ‘the only available tool’ for Republicans to push the issue to its breaking point.

‘Joe Biden is not honoring his oath, and with Congress in a stalemate and state sovereignty nullified, only he can solve the border crisis he’s created. It’s that simple: Either Republicans use the only tool available to them to force Biden’s hand, or they are aiders and abettors,’ he wrote. ‘There is no middle ground.’
