Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has been quite outspoken in her opposition to President Joe Biden, and now she is backing up her words with action.

On Thursday, Greene announced that she had filed formal articles of impeachment that aimed to remove Biden from office, Fox News reported.

Impeachment articles announced

"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-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," Rep. Greene said at the start of a press conference on Thursday.

She said Biden had "deliberately compromised our national security by refusing to enforce immigration laws and secure our border," has allowed "approximately six million illegals from over 170 countries to invade our country," had "deprived Border Patrol of the necessary resources and policies sufficient to protect our country."

Greene also accused the entire Biden administration of having "willfully refused to maintain operational control as is required by law," and cited as an example the devastating influx of deadly fentanyl into the country that is estimated to be responsible for around 300 drug overdose deaths per day nationwide.

She also referenced reports that the administration had lost track of approximately 85,000 unaccompanied migrant children who've entered the country as well as reports that some of those migrant children have been conscripted as slave labor, and asked, "Where are these kids? No one even knows."

The congresswoman also listed several of Biden's border security and immigration policies that she claimed were in direct violation of existing federal laws, were violations of his oath of office, and posed a "direct threat" to national security -- all of which she asserted rendered him "unfit" to continue serving as the president and deserving of impeachment.

The articles against Biden

Rep. Greene later unveiled the actual articles of impeachment she had drafted against President Biden that called for his impeachment and removal from office for "high crimes and misdemeanors" that included abuse of power, endangering the country, and defying the will of Congress and duly-passed laws.

The first article of impeachment dealt broadly with Biden's perceived failures at securing the border and enforcing immigration laws, while the second article of impeachment was more narrowly focused on the administration's failure to fully enforce the Title 42 pandemic-era public health order that allowed for the immediate expulsion of all migrants at the border.

She also included a third article of impeachment that was similarly narrowly focused on the administration's insufficient efforts to secure the nation's southern border.

"Wherefore President Biden, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with the rule of law. President Biden thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States," the impeachment articles concluded.

"Impeachment Week"

The New York Post reported that Rep. Greene's press conference to announce her new articles of impeachment against President Biden capped off what the congresswoman had labeled as "Impeachment Week."

On Tuesday, Greene had filed articles of impeachment against both FBI Director Christopher Wray and Washington D.C.-based U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves over their alleged abuse of power and violation of rights in pursuing and prosecuting Americans charged criminally in relation to the January 6 Capitol riot of 2021.

She followed that up on Wednesday with articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas for his "dereliction of duty" in relation to border security and immigration laws, as well as against Attorney General Merrick Garland for "facilitating the weaponization and politicization of the United States justice system against the American people."
