“No More Excuses” – Biden Cornered For Disastrous Border Policy

The claims by President Joe Biden that he has exhausted his authority regarding immigration enforcement have been directly challenged by Speaker Mike Johnson. In a strong rebuttal, Johnson highlighted Biden’s statement as either a deliberate falsehood or a severe misjudgment. This response from Johnson underscores the frustration and contradiction surrounding the Biden administration’s approach to the ongoing border crisis.

Biden’s assertion of impotence in the face of the border situation is blatantly contradicted by Johnson’s reference to several specific legal authorities at the President’s disposal. These include the Presidential Authority to Expedited Removal 235(b)(1),¬†Restrict Entry 212(f),¬†Discretionary Detention Authority 236(a), and Mandatory Detention 236(c). This list is a stark reminder that the President has significant powers to address the border situation effectively, yet for reasons unknown, these powers remain underutilized or completely ignored.

The Speaker’s fact-check serves as a sharp reality check to Biden’s recent promise to “shut down” the border, contingent on the passage of a legislative bill that many Republicans believe will have little impact on the migrant crisis. Johnson’s response here is not just a criticism but a call for action, urging Biden to use the extensive executive powers at his disposal to rectify the situation. This includes measures like ending catch-and-release, stopping the exploitation of parole authority, reinstating the Remain in Mexico program, using expedited removal authority, and resuming construction of a border wall.

Johnson’s remarks paint a picture of a president who either does not fully understand the extent of his powers or is unwilling to utilize them for reasons not entirely clear to the public. The situation at the border is a complex and multifaceted issue, but the Speaker’s comments suggest that there are untapped resources and strategies that could be employed to bring about significant improvements.

This critique of Biden’s handling of the border crisis is a call to action, urging the President to step up and use the legal tools at his disposal to address a situation that continues to challenge the nation. The Speaker’s emphasis on the legal powers already vested in the presidency serves as a reminder that more proactive measures could be taken, but aren’t.
