Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said on Thursday that she will introduce articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden for his failure to enforce immigration laws.

"It is with the highest amount of solemnity that I announce my intention to introduce articles of impeachment today on the head of this America-at-last Executive Branch that has been working since January 20th, 2021, to systematically destroy this country: the President of the United States, Joseph Robinette Biden," she said at a Thursday press conference.

Greene argued that Biden "deliberately compromised our national security by refusing to enforce immigration laws and secure our border" and that "[h]is administration has willfully refused to maintain operational control as is required by law."

While there's no doubt that Biden should be impeached on these and other grounds, Greene has compromised her credibility on matters of impeachment by introducing articles of impeachment against several other officials and doing so on her own without any coalition among her party.

A lone congresswoman trying to impeach a sitting president and several members of his cabinet is not going to work.

There may yet be a time and situation where impeachment of Biden could work, but right now it just looks like a partisan move that isn't going to go anywhere.
