‘Unconscionable’: Speaker Johnson Slams WH Talk of ‘Regular Migration’ and Amnesty for ‘Vital’ Illegals

Speaker of the House Mike Johnson is taking aim at President Joe Biden’s administration for promoting migration as a historically unprecedented mass of illegal immigrants storms the border.

The White House and the government of Mexico released a Thursday joint announcement calling for illegal aliens to receive amnesty privileges, drawing the ire of Johnson.

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas led a delegation to develop the the announcement with Mexico’s leaders.

Biden’s government and the nation of Mexico expressed a commitment to “orderly, humane, and regular migration” in the announcement, declining to offer solutions to prevent hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from reaching the United States’ southern border every month.

The House Republican leader criticized Biden’s pro-amnesty announcement — in which illegal aliens were lauded as a “vital part of the U.S. economy and society” — as out of touch in a Friday tweet.

“At a time when America is experiencing the worst border crisis in our nation’s history, it is unconscionable to hear the Biden Administration’s announcement that Secretaries Mayorkas and Blinken discussed with the President of Mexico amnesty for illegal immigrants,” Johnson posted to X.

“The United States must focus on policies that deter — not attract — people attempting to come here illegally, and the smugglers who profit from the catastrophe at our border,” the speaker added.

Johnson would continue: “This development further demonstrates the Administration has no real intention of solving the humanitarian disaster and immediate national security crisis their policies have created.

“President Biden needs to stop vacationing and take immediate steps to stop the flow of illegal immigration into our country. Our nation’s security and sovereignty depend upon it, and the American people demand it.”

Other critics of Biden’s open door policy described the announcement as wildly out of touch with the realities of the southern border.

A torrent of illegal immigration has broken federal records involving the crime since Biden’s inauguration.

Johnson has prioritized restoring the nation’s borders since securing the speaker’s gavel in October.

Biden, conversely, has thus far refused any change to the United States’ notoriously lenient asylum laws — proving willing to delay military aid to Ukraine instead of agreeing to reforms, according to the Associated Press.

Some reports have suggested the president might prove willing to cave on his commitment against immigration enforcement, according to The New York Times.
