Speaker Johnson & 64 House Conservatives visit southern border: “It’s an unmitigated disaster”
Today, 64 House Conservatives, led by Speaker Mike Johnson, visited the southern border at Eagle Pass, TX.
After meeting with border officials, Speaker Johnson had this to say: “One thing that is absolutely clear, America is at a breaking point with record levels of illegal immigration… The situation here and across the country is truly unconscionable, we would describe it as both heartbreaking and infuriating. Our communities are overrun, we have local resources that are being strapped, we have lethal drugs that are pouring into our country at record levels, and it’s in less than three years that President Biden took office that this is happening.”
- There have been over 7 million migrant encounters since President Biden took office.
- December alone saw a staggering 302,000 migrant encounters, the highest single month ever recorded and the first time hitting 300,000.
- Politico reported today that the migrant crisis is rapidly escalating in blue states in just the first week of 2024.
Last May, the House passed H.R. 2: Secure the Border Act, to do just that.
Unfortunately, every liberal in Congress voted against it, and the Senate refuses to take up the legislation.
“There is an unmitigated disaster happening at our southern border,” said AAN Communications Director Courtney Parella. “Liberals in Congress must act now to stop it.”
