Biden Signs Weak Executive Order To Address His Border Crisis After Claiming He Couldn’t Do It
WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 31: U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks on former U.S. President Donald Trump’s guilty verdict in his hush-money trial before speaking on the Middle East at the White House on May 31, 2024 in Washington, DC. Biden said Trump had a fair trial and an impartial jury found him guilty on all 34 counts and added it is dangerous for anyone to say the trial was rigged.

President Joe Biden signed a weak executive order on Tuesday to address the border crisis he caused that has resulted in millions of illegal aliens overrunning the border over the last three and a half years.

Biden signed an executive order that will “temporarily shut down asylum requests once the average number of daily encounters tops 2,500 between official ports of entry,” NBC News reported.

Former Obama Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson previously said that 1,000 apprehensions at the border in a day was a “bad number” that “overwhelms the system.”

A former U.S. law enforcement official told The Daily Wire that the executive order was designed to do little more than generate headlines and that Mexican drug cartels would simply send the migrants they are smuggling into the country to official ports of entry to turn themselves in.

The administration released a fact sheet that claimed that illegal aliens who entered the U.S. would be barred from receiving asylum. However, the fact sheet said that “these actions are not permanent.”

The executive order comes after Biden has repeatedly claimed that he could not do anything to address the border crisis that he caused, which has approximately 10 million illegal aliens flooding into the U.S.

“It’s window dressing. Everybody knows it,” said Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA). “If he was concerned about the border, he would have done this a long time ago.”

The White House claimed that Biden has been tough on the border and suggested that he has stopped the flow of fentanyl into the U.S., even though overdose deaths continue to rise from the illicit drug.

The administration also claimed that Biden reached a “historic bipartisan agreement with Senate Democrats and Republicans to deliver the most consequential reforms of America’s immigration laws in decades” — even though Republicans overwhelmingly did not support the law because they argued that it legalized illegal immigration.
