House Speaker Mike Johnson Slams Biden For Border Crisis

On Wednesday, House Speaker Mike Johnson slammed President Biden’s border policy in a 30-minute speech on the House Floor. 

“Since I was elected Speaker less than 100 days ago, more than 700,000 illegals have been welcomed into our country illegally by the Biden administration,” Johnson began.  

“He’s inviting chaos and disorder within our land that is tearing at the very fabric of our society. The president can put a stop to this. President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas have designed this catastrophe,” Johnson said. “And now rather than accept any accountability or responsibility for what they have clearly done, President Biden wants to somehow try to shift the blame to Congress for his administration’s catastrophe by design. It’s absolutely laughable. No one’s falling for this.” 

“My counter is this: If President Biden wants us to believe he’s serious about protecting our national security, he needs to demonstrate good faith and take immediate action to secure that border. But he won’t do it…” he added. “He needs to immediately stop the mass release of illegals in our country, but he won’t do it. If he wants our House Republican conference to view him as a good-faith negotiator, he can start with a stroke of a pen. But he’s got to do it quickly.” 

Since Biden began his presidency, a crisis has developed as illegal immigration at the southern border more than tripled during his first year in office – when a record 1,734,686 border patrol encounters of migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border in fiscal year 2021. The crisis has continued to worsen with that record being broken again in 2022, with 2,378,944 encounters, and again in 2023, with 2,475,669 encounters. 

Fiscal year 2024 is already on pace to set yet another new record with reportedly around 302,000 encounters in December – the highest monthly total ever.
