A resolution approved on June 22, 2023, will send articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden brought by Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) to the House Homeland Security and House Judiciary committees. The resolution passed along party lines (219-208).

The committees will determine if there are any impeachable offenses related to Biden’s immigration policies. Boebert argues, Biden’s “actions and open borders agenda demonstrates that he has no intention of enforcing our current immigration and border security statutes on the books.”

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also introduced articles of impeachment against Biden. While Greene’s articles also targeted the president’s immigration policies, they were largely unsupported by House Republicans.

House Democrats largely chided the effort, with Representative Jim McGovern (D-MA), saying, “Our founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves, but they are doing this all so they can distract from the fact that Donald Trump stole top secret information and stored it in his bathroom.”

Discussion Questions

  1. Examine Representative Boebert’s resolution. Do you agree that there are impeachable offenses against President Biden? Explain your answer.
  2. What are some examples of crimes or actions for which you think a federal official should be impeached? 
  3. Review ProCon’s “Impeachment Explainer.” Do you think the impeachment process is set up in a way that protects the best interests of the American public? Why or why not?
