Biden’s Border Order; Too Little, Too Late?!

Joe Biden

( – Looking to score political points out of a situation he created, Joe Biden is reportedly set to sign an executive order on immigration and border security, but House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said the attempt came “too little, too late.”

Although the White House said it is always evaluating options, no final decision has been made.

“From day one, the administration has always evaluated what actions could be taken. There haven’t been any final decisions regarding what additional executive actions, if any, could be taken,” the White House stated.

The expected order comes as Biden faces growing criticism from both parties over the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, where record numbers of migrant encounters are straining federal resources.

However, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) declined to credit the Biden administration for acting on the U.S. border as they work to clamp down on illegal immigration, claiming that the bill is “too little, too late now.”

The community leader, who asked to remain anonymous, claimed that the White House has been contacting mayors of border cities about potentially attending the announcement.

At least two Texas border mayors, Brownsville, Texas’ Mayor John Cowen, and Edinburg, Texas’ Mayor Ramiro Garza, are heading to Washington this week.

However, the list of those who were not invited is just as notable as that of those who were. NewsNation correspondent Ali Bradley confirmed that the mayor of El Cajon, California, in the Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector, was not contacted.

Additionally, Sierra Vista, Arizona’s mayor said no one reached out to him.

He told Bradley that he would love to speak to Biden about the experiences in southern Arizona and suggested that Biden might have been displeased with the letter he and a coalition of Cochise County mayors sent to his office requesting action.

Moreover, the Democratic mayor of Eagle Pass, a Texas-Mexico border town where the number of migrants led to a state-federal clash over border security, had not received an invitation.

When NewsNation asked, the White House said they needed Congress to act and blamed former President Donald Trump for derailing a bipartisan border deal.
