Too Little Too Late? House Speaker Johnson Finally Has Border Crisis Concerns

After weeks of taking heat from friends and foes alike, U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has sounded off on the growing U.S. border crisis.

Earlier this week, Johnson tweeted out a response to Dept. of Homeland Security data showing that the Biden administration is flying otherwise inadmissible immigrants into the U.S.

That data was obtained by subpoena by the House Homeland Security Committee and provided exclusively to Fox News. According to House Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) say the president’s humanitarian program allows immigrants who have no legal basis to be in the U.S. Fox News reports that another 1.6 million migrants are awaiting approval for the program.

Johnson’s objections to what he calls “reckless open border policies” have sparked backlash among conservative voters who point out that the Speaker’s $95 billion in security aid to  Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan do nothing to secure the American border.

Critics say Johnson failed to use his position to defund the president’s parole program which utilizes more than 50 airports nationwide to fly in hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela.

In fact, Todd Bensman who is a National Security Fellow for the Center for Immigration Studies reports that Congress approved another $3.5 billion for migration and refugee assistance to NGOs on both sides of the border.

It’s getting tougher for Speaker Johnson to convince struggling Americans that his concerns are genuine when he’s proven unwilling or unable to stop handing the Biden administration an open budget to fund illegals being flown into the U.S.
