House Speaker Mike Johnson recently released a document outlining more than 60 times President Joe Biden and his administration have gutted border security and encouraged illegals to pour into the country. This happened after the White House tried to claim that House Republicans had an "anti-border security record" by voting to "eliminate over 2,000 border patrol agents and erode our capacity to seize fentanyl."
According to Johnson's press release, these were untrue and previously disproven. It also underscored Biden's failure to secure the southern border as December saw a record-high of illegal crossings. The nation also acknowledged that the situation has escalated to a "migration crisis."
"Since his first day in office, Biden has worked to undermine America's border security systematically," Johnson said. "On more than 60 occasions, he has manipulated the federal bureaucracy to open our borders to illegal immigrants, human trafficking, fentanyl, and potential terrorists. The result is a humanitarian and national security catastrophe. The President must use his executive authority to repair what he has broken. I am calling on him to do so." He proceeded to cite 64 infractions when border security policy was undermined and illegal immigration consented. When he assumed office, Biden terminated the National Emergency at the Southwest border (Proclamation 9844), thereby halting the emergency construction of a border wall. All the other policies included "opening the borders."
