Mike Johnson Denounces President Biden’s Support of the Senate-Backed U.S.-Mexico Border Deal

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) denounced President Biden’s support of the Senate-backed U.S.-Mexico border deal, arguing he can use executive action to curtail the number of encounters the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) deals with daily.

In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Johnson said that Biden does not need to pass new legislation to address the situation at the southern border.

“President Biden falsely claimed yesterday he needs Congress to pass a new law to allow him to close the southern border, but he knows that is untrue,” Johnson said. “As I explained to him in a letter late last year, and have specifically reiterated to him on multiple occasions since, he can and must take executive action immediately to reverse the catastrophe he has created.”
