MAGA Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R) is forcing a House vote on impeaching President Biden over his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border and immigration policy later this week.

Walking off the House floor Tuesday, Boebert said that while House GOP leadership was aware she would make the privileged motion soon, according to The Hill.

A notice from House Democrat Whip Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) on Tuesday indicated that Democrats will make a motion to table the resolution when it comes up for a vote on the floor, a procedural move that would block the resolution from coming to the floor for a vote.

The Colorado Congresswoman introduced two impeachment resolutions against Biden earlier this month.

In the first impeachment article, Boebert charges that Biden “knowingly presided over an executive branch that has continuously, overtly, and consistently violated Federal immigration law by pursuing an aggressive, open-borders agenda,” saying the U.S. allowed a high number of migrants released into the country “without the intention or ability to ensure that they appear in immigration court to face asylum or deportation proceedings.”

In the second impeachment article, Boebert’s resolution points to deportation cases being at historic lows, and deaths caused by fentanyl.

Boebert did not predict whether her impeachment articles would pass or not.

“We’ll see. I mean, I hope that Republicans and Democrats alike can recognize the invasion that’s taking place at our southern border, and that the laws of our nation are not being faithfully executed, and that we have an opportunity to bring a check and a balance to the invasion that’s going on,” Boebert said.
