BREAKING: Mike Johnson blasts Biden for 'finally admitting' he can address border without new laws

"My statement regarding President Biden finally admitting he has the authority to address the border catastrophe he has created."

House Speaker Mike Johnson has slammed President Joe Biden for reports showing that the Biden White House has been considering executive action to secure the border without new laws set in motion. 

Johnson wrote, "House Republicans have been sounding the alarm about the catastrophic effects of President Biden's open border policies since he began his term. Last year, I sent a letter to the President to demand he take immediate executive action. He has thus far ignored my demands, and the pleas from big city mayors, border state governors, and the American people."

He continued and said that Biden has "created this catastrophe and, until now, has refused to use his executive power to fix it."

"Specifically, the President's alleged desire to invoke Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which the White House dismissed using for months, is particularly telling," Johnson stated, citing reports from Wednesday that the White House has been considering the executive action. 

Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states, “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.” 

"If these reports are true and the President intends to take action, he can show he's serious by changing more than asylum policy. He should begin by reinstituting the 'Remain in Mexico' policy and ending his administration's abuse of the parole system, along with other critical reforms," Johnson concluded in his statement.
