President Joe Biden said this week that he wants executive action on the border to happen by itself.

Biden made the remarks while speaking to reporters during a visit to New Hampshire — which comes after reports surfaced last month that Biden was pondering using executive action to fix the crisis that he created on the border shortly after he entered office and issued dozens of executive orders that reversed the policies of the Trump administration.

“Mr. President, when is a border executive action coming?” a reporter asked. “An executive action on the border.”

“I’m counting on the border action happening by itself — the passing it,” Biden responded.

Biden also ignited widespread backlash over the weekend after he apologized for correctly referring to the illegal alien who is suspected of murdering a young woman in Georgia as “an illegal” because he did not want to “disrespect” illegal immigrants.

The young woman — 22-year-old Georgia nursing student Laken Riley — was brutally murdered allegedly by Venezuelan national Jose Ibarra, who is reportedly an active gang member.

During an interview on MSNBC, when the interviewer brought up Biden’s remark from his State of the Union speech, Biden interjected: “Undocumented. An undocumented person.”

“And I shouldn’t have used ‘illegal,’ it’s undocumented,” Biden claimed, even though the correct legal terminology is, in fact, “illegal alien.”

“What I’m not going to do, what I won’t do, I’m not gonna treat any, any, any of these people with disrespect,” Biden later added. “Look, they built the country. The reason our economy is growing. We have to control the border and more orderly flow, but I don’t share his view at all.”
