Speaker Mike Johnson: Biden Admin ‘Intentionally’ Caused Historic Illegal Immigration Crisis

 House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said during an interview over the weekend that President Joe Biden’s administration “intentionally” created the illegal immigration crisis on the U.S. southern border.

Johnson made the remarks during a Sunday interview on CBS News’s “Face The Nation” while talking about the historic flood of illegal aliens pouring into the U.S. through the southern border after there were 302,000 illegal alien encounters in December.

“We have a humanitarian catastrophe here, and, of course, huge national security concerns,” Johnson said. “What we saw is in some ways difficult to describe, just the magnitude of the chaos here, of the number of lives that are adversely affected, the minor children that are being trafficked into the country, and fentanyl overdoses and poisoning that has been a scourge on the country.”

“These are transnational, dangerous criminal organizations,” Johnson continued. “And the maddening thing about it is that the White House is allowing all this. These are policy choices that created this chaos. And it is thus policy choices that could change it.”

Johnson noted that the chaos began as soon as Biden took office and started changing policies through executive orders.

He said that throwing more money at the problem was not the answer to the problem and that the solution was getting DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to enforce the law.

“We’ve been asking Secretary Mayorkas since he took office to enforce the law, to do his job, and he’s done exactly the opposite,” he said. “He’s testified untruthfully before Congress repeatedly.”


“I believe Secretary Mayorkas is an abject failure, but it’s not because of incompetence,” he continued. “I believe he has done this intentionally. I think these are intentional policy decisions that he’s made. And I think there must be accountability for that.”
