That’s more people than the population of 36 states. Arizona, for example, had 7.1 million residents according to the 2020 census.

After taking office, President Biden immediately canceled several Trump-era border initiatives, including the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy that required migrants seeking asylum to remain in Mexico until their court hearing date in the US. USA

Biden also halted construction of the US-Mexico border within days of taking office.

But nowThe 81-year-old president would be reflecting on the possibility of take executive action at the border As surveys indicate, it is a priority issue for voters and legislators rejected a negotiated border bill earlier this month.

He is studying the possibility of using the Immigration and Nationality Act, which gives the president broad leeway to block the entry of certain immigrants, to close the border if more than 8,500 try to cross in a day.

The top leader of the Republican Party accuses the president of waiting until the election year to take action, which he should have done months ago. Biden previously said he couldn’t provide border security without the support of the Republican Party in Congress.

“Americans have lost faith in this president and will not be fooled by election year tricks that do not actually secure the border,” President Mike Johnson wrote in a statement obtained by DailyMail.com.

“Nor will they forget that the president created this catastrophe and has so far refused to use his executive power to fix it.”

“These reports also underscore how blatantly and intentionally President Biden misled the public when he claimed he had done everything in his power to secure the border,” Johnson continued.

The speaker wants Biden to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico” policy and end the administration’s “abuse” of the parole system.
