Rep. Rosendale Calls For Immediate Vote On Sec. Mayorkas Impeachment Following Staggering Fentanyl Numbers In Montana

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Matt Rosendale (MT-02) calls for an immediate vote on the resolution to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas following the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Rocky Mountain Division report stating nearly 350,000 dosage units of fentanyl, enough to kill one-third of the state’s population, were seized in Montana’s six most highly trafficked counties. Sec. Mayorkas’ open-border policies have killed over 60 Montanans just this year and allowed enough fentanyl to flow into Montana that can kill 1/3 of our state’s population,” said Rep. Rosendale.

This invasion at our border and chemical attack on our country must stop, which is why I am calling for an immediate vote on the resolution to impeach Sec. Mayorkas and end this Administration’s America last agenda.”
