Joe Biden’s Executive Order Will Allow A Minimum Of 1.8 Million Additional Illegal Immigrants Into Our Country

Today, Joe Biden announced an executive order that would still permit a minimum of 1.8 million illegal immigrants to enter the country. To put that in perspective that is 4.5 times the number of illegal immigrants that were encountered at our Southern Border in FY20. 
According to the New York Post
“The Biden administration announced an executive order Tuesday that it claims would shut down the US-Mexico border once illegal crossings hit 2,500 per day between points of entry for seven consecutive days — a “crackdown” that will still permit a minimum of 1.8 million new arrivals into America every year even if enforced properly.” 
Biden spent the past three and half years actively working tirelessly to implement his failed Far Left Democrat open border policies which have turned every American community into a border community. Now, just three weeks before the first presidential debate, Biden is attempting to stabilize his plummeting poll numbers with an executive order that he could have made months ago and does nothing to address the Biden border crisis. 
MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Republicans know that border security is national security, and we know the best way to secure our borders is by reimplementing President Trump’s successful policies. That is why we passed H.R. 2, the Secure The Border Act of 2023,  the strongest border security bill in history. It would reimplement President Trump’s successful border policies and put an end to Joe Biden’s border crisis.
