President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he was rewarding hundreds of thousands of migrants who violated federal immigration laws, which comes as he claims that he is cracking down on illegal immigration.

Biden’s new policy will provide legal status and a streamlined path to U.S. residency and citizenship to more than 500,000 illegal aliens who married American citizens and have lived in the country for 10 years.

“This action will allow them to file paperwork for legal status in the United States, allowing them to work while they remain with their families in the United States,” Biden said.

In order to be eligible, the illegal aliens must have met the 10 year requirement by June 17, 2024, or else they will have to wait for the next Democrat mass amnesty program.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) slammed Biden in a statement, saying that just two weeks ago, Biden “pretended to crack down on the open-border catastrophe by engaging an election-year border charade.”

“Now he’s trying to play both sides and is granting amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens,” he said. “The President may think our homeland security is some kind of game that he can try to use for political points, but Americans know this amnesty plan will only incentivize more illegal immigration and endanger Americans.”

Johnson also noted that this policy was “proof-positive of the Democrats’ plan to turn illegal aliens into voters.”

“I fully expect this order, which is manifestly contrary to the Immigration and Naturalization Act, to be challenged and struck down in the courts,” he added.


Texas Governor Greg Abbott, whose state has arguably been hit the hardest by Biden’s border crisis, called Biden’s mass amnesty program “blatantly illegal and is a desperate pandering for votes in his failing reelection bid.”

“President Biden’s amnesty proposal, just like President Obama’s DAPA and DACA proposals, will be stricken down by the courts for a simple reason: it is Congress, not the President, that has the authority to make or change immigration laws,” he said. “Rather than solving the border crisis he caused, President Biden’s mass amnesty will be another magnet to attract migrants to flood across our border illegally. President Biden needs to stop rewriting immigration law and start enforcing it.”

“President Biden gaslighted the American people into thinking that he is taking real action to secure the border by issuing a hollow executive order that will instead invite thousands of unvetted illegal immigrants to continue crossing our southern border daily,” he continued. “He is now doubling down by offering mass amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants already in the country. President Biden’s reckless policies have already allowed over 11 million illegal immigrants—including dangerous criminals, gang members, and terrorists—into America. Our country can’t survive four more years of these dangerous open border policies.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) highlighted the names of Americans who have been murdered by illegal aliens under Biden and noted that while alleged ISIS terrorists have snuck into the country through Biden’s open southern border, the president’s “top priority is to give amnesty to illegal aliens. He has utterly abandoned the American people.”

“This amnesty program allows illegal aliens to get citizenship and vote in future elections,” Cruz said. “Make no mistake: Joe Biden views every illegal alien as a future Democrat voter. That is why he is willing to look the other way while Americans are being murdered, our communities are being overrun by crime, and our young people are being poisoned by fentanyl flowing across the border—he views the American people’s suffering as an acceptable price to pay to gain future Democrat voters. Democrats are out of touch with the American people. They have given up trying to persuade American citizens that their ideas are rational and good for the country, and they are instead importing illegal aliens.”

“Don’t believe the lie that Joe Biden cares about securing the border,” Cruz added. “His fake ‘border security’ executive order is nothing more than a messaging ploy for the propagandists in the media to push ahead of the November election. On the contrary, he wants our country to be invaded by more illegal aliens, and this amnesty program is the proof. Offering mass amnesty will incentivize more illegal aliens to cross the border and will exacerbate the pain and suffering of the Americans that the Biden administration has left behind.”
