Biden Announces Border Action After Claiming His Hands Were Tied For Years


After four years of doing nothing to stem the border invasion his policies welcomed, Biden signed an executive order Tuesday directly contradicting his false claim that he did not have the constitutional authority to mitigate the record numbers of illegal border crossings.

The executive order will reportedly halt asylum claims temporarily “once the average number of daily encounters hits 2,500 between ports of entry, with the border reopening only once that number declines to 1,500,” according to The Associated Press.

However, when Univision anchor Enrique Acevedo pressed Biden earlier this year about whether he could use his executive authority to close the southern border, he replied, “There is no guarantee that I have that power all by myself without legislation.”

Biden has reportedly allowed an unprecedented 1.7 million known “gotaways” to enter the country since he took office, leading to more than 10 million aliens illegally entering the United States under his so-called leadership. Since Biden’s inauguration in 2021, he has undermined border security more than 60 times, as The Federalist has documented. As Speaker Mike Johnson said, Biden “has manipulated the federal bureaucracy to open our borders to illegal immigrants, human trafficking, fentanyl, and potential terrorists.”

The White House said in a statement Tuesday, “President Biden believes we must secure our border.” Yet the first executive orders he signed after his inauguration included halting the border wall construction that started under former President Trump, ending restrictions on immigration from countries rife with terrorism, and expanding the “illegal” Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which invites cartels to traffick children into the U.S.

Now, as Biden tries to clean up his roundly criticized immigration record, it’s worth noting his executive order will not mitigate the crisis. The order still allows thousands of migrants to illegally cross the border, as many as 2,500 per day. Another nearly half-million migrants could illegally enter the country before November without the federal government taking any action.

It’s no surprise that after years of standing idly by, Biden is finally taking action just months before the 2024 election. His approval rating has dropped to 38.3 percent, while Americans continually cite immigration as the “most important problem facing the U.S.

The president is also on the cusp of a debate with former President Donald Trump, the 2024 front-runner who curbed the flow of illegal immigration through policies such as “Remain in Mexico” and is sure to grill Biden on his disastrous handling of the border.
