WATCH LIVE: Senators sworn in as Mayorkas impeachment proceedings begin

  • House Republicans have sent two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the Senate, initiating a trial where GOP lawmakers aim to criticize President Joe Biden's immigration policy.

  • Mayorkas, who assumed leadership at the start of the Biden administration, is the first Cabinet secretary to be impeached in nearly 150 years.
