Biden Executive Order on Immigration Could Arrive on Tuesday

Joe Biden may reportedly sign another executive order addressing the crisis at the southern border as soon as Tuesday.

According to Politico, four anonymous sources all said that the order will most likely be signed prior to Biden’s trip to France later this week to observe the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion at Normandy in World War II.

The order in question will allegedly utilize section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act to greatly restrict illegal aliens’ ability to seek asylum upon crossing the southern border, only after the number of encounters hits a new level. One number that has been floated is 4,000 daily border crossings over the span of one week, or 28,000 per week.

The possibility of such an order reflects the ongoing political toll that the mass migration crisis is taking on Biden’s presidency and re-election campaign. Voters in the presidential primaries throughout 2024 have consistently ranked immigration and the border as their top concern heading into November, and Biden’s approval ratings on the immigration issue are historically low as the rate of illegal immigration has spiked to levels never seen before in American history.

Biden came to office on a pledge to support open borders, as well as giving taxpayer-funded benefits and eventual amnesty to all illegals. However, the subsequent spike in crime, disease, drugs, and homelessness in many American cities as a result has led to some local Democrats demanding that Biden stem the flow of illegals. Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump has vowed to shut down all immigration on his first day back in office if he is re-elected.

“The border patrol, I know them so well. They endorsed me, they always endorse me. They say when Trump goes back, it will all be better. And Biden, by the way, he doesn’t need any legislation,” said Trump in an interview on Fox News over the weekend. “In 2016, it was a big factor of my win…but now the border is 100 times worse than it was in 2016.”

As a result of the apparent shift on the border question, far-left groups and other pro-amnesty advocates have begun turning against Biden, demanding that he honor his original promises of open-borders and claiming that he is letting conservatives control the framing of the immigration debate.

Democrats in Congress previously tried to introduce a bill on the border crisis, but conservative Republicans succeeded in defeating the bill due to too many conditions that would be lenient to illegals, such as allowing a minimum of 5,000 new illegals to enter the country every day.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered 400 Texas National Guard troops and state police to the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, which is under a state of emergency due to a surge of migrants crossing from Mexico into the city. Border officials expect an even larger migrant surge at the border if the pandemic era Title 42 regulation is lifted. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
