Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) issued the following statement Friday:

Secretary Mayorkas has proven he is willing to put the depraved media’s narrative ahead of the truth. He doesn’t deserve to lead the good men and women of Border Patrol who sacrifice every day for our country’s security and should be impeached.

For 10 months DHS hasn’t even been willing to answer basic questions about the ‘whipping’ incident last September. I even sent letters as recently as January and June and never received any substantive answers. 

But today we learned what we knew all along — the accused Border Patrol Agents in Del Rio did nothing wrong. There was never any criminal activity for the DHS IG to look into, and CBP’s own investigation found no evidence any migrants were whipped or struck by agents. 

But this administration can’t miss a chance to destroy the morale of our overrun, hardworking Border Patrol for political gain, and it issued disciplinary action anyway to finish off one of the most despicable displays of leadership seen from any cabinet Secretary.
