House sends Mayorkas impeachment articles to the Senate for trial

House Republicans have sent two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the Senate, marking the first Cabinet secretary impeachment in nearly 150 years. The trial in the Senate is expected to end quickly, with Democrats likely to dismiss the charges without a full trial. Republican lawmakers are seeking to highlight President Joe Biden's immigration policy through this impeachment effort, but constitutional experts and Democrats have criticized the move as politically motivated and lacking evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors.
