AUSTIN, TX — Today, Speaker Johnson met with the Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, and expressed his steadfast support for the Governor’s efforts to secure the Texas-Mexico border. The two also discussed ways to hold the Biden administration accountable for its refusal to enforce laws intended to protect Americans from national security threats coming across the southern border.

Speaker Johnson additionally shared that the House of Representatives will transmit articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the Senate on April 10th.


Speaker Johnson released the following statement:

“By opening the border to criminals, traffickers, and cartels, the Biden administration is actively endangering the American people, our families, ranchers, and law enforcement. When the federal government fails to perform its constitutional duty to protect our borders, states have no choice but to fill that role. Right now, we’re witnessing a gross abuse of power as Biden’s Department of Justice uses the judicial system to go after the state of Texas for attempting to safeguard its citizens. Texans, and all Americans, deserve better.”
