Biden Signs Immigration Executive Order After Saying It Was Something He Couldn't Do

Months ago, Joe Biden said there was nothing he could do about illegal immigration. Republicans said he was lying. He could issue an executive order.


Today, the president said he's doing something about illegal immigration.


You can't make this up.


See for yourself:




USA Today reports, "With Congress in gridlock and his reelection in question, President Joe Biden is leaning on executive powers to curb migration his administration previously insisted he did not have."


How convenient.


"Biden said he was driven to action by a worldwide migrant crisis that could result in an unlimited number of people trying to enter the country," USA Today noted. "Biden issued a directive on Tuesday that compels the U.S. to turn away migrants who do not enter the country through legal ports of entry anytime unlawful crossings hit an average 2,500 people a day in a given week.


"The goodwill of the American people is wearing thin right now," Biden said on Tuesday.

"Doing nothing is not an option. We have to act."




The president's order is a temporary measure that will only remain until illegal crossings fall down to an average of 1,500 per day.


Which is STILL too many. But what did you expect from a president who has ignored America's broken southern border his entire presidency and is only doing something now because he's trying to get re-elected?


Biden said of his order, "It’ll also give me as president, the emergency authority to shut down the border until it could get back under control. If that bill were the law today, I’d shut down the border right now and fix it quickly.”


The "emergency authority" Joe Biden has insisted he hasn't had for months and years.


Ignoring the border and the colossal problem of illegal immigration is nothing less than a dereliction of duty.


Biden is a joke of a president and he needs to go in November.
