On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump‘s re-election campaign slammed President Joe Biden‘s not-yet-released plan to limit asylum-seeker crossings as “amnesty” for illegal immigrants.

Biden’s executive order, which he is expected to unveil on Tuesday, reportedly involves shutting down the U.S.-Mexico border when the average daily encounters of migrants between ports of entry reach 2,500 and reopening it when the average number drops to 1,500.

“Let’s be clear — Joe Biden’s Executive Order is for amnesty, not border security,” Trump campaign press secretary Karoline Leavitt said, adding later, “If Joe Biden truly wanted to shut down the border, he could do so with a swipe of the same pen, but he never will because he is controlled by radical left Democrats who seek to destroy America.”

The Washington Post reported that U.S. authorities have accounted for roughly 2 million illegal crossings along the southern border each year since 2021 and government data show the daily average over the past couple of weeks has been more than 3,500.

Upon taking office, Biden reversed some of Trump’s immigration policies. Later in his term, Biden allowed for the expiration of the pandemic-era Title 42, which allowed authorities to quickly turn away migrants at the border on public health grounds.

Members of Congress, including House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and centrist Democrats, urged Biden to use his executive authority to stem the tide of illegal immigration as well as stop an influx of fentanyl, human trafficking, and devastation of local communities.

Biden had resisted pressure to take executive action, but is now poised to sign an order after the Democrat-controlled Senate rejected a bill — for the second time — that sought to tighten up the asylum process and shore up border security a couple of weeks ago.

Border security as well as immigration have become top issues for Americans as Biden is poised to once again face off against Trump in the presidential election that is coming up in November. Both men are their respective party’s presumptive nominee in this year’s contest.


Trump’s campaign website says he would “shut down Biden’s border disaster” in a second term. His campaign press secretary, Leavitt, ended her statement by declaring, “The border invasion and migrant crime will not stop until Crooked Joe Biden is deported from the White House.”
