On Wednesday, almost two dozen Republican members of Congress presented a motion to reprimand Joe Biden for his “failure to carry out the duties of his position.”
It comes amid a rising immigration crisis at the southern border the decision to impeach the 46th President of the United States, which was exacerbated by Biden’s rollback of Donald Trump’s initiatives intended to stem the flow of immigrants.
Biden’s first executive order suspended the construction of the border wall, which was meant to restrict and stem the flow of illegal immigration into the country from Mexico by closing gaps in isolated regions throughout Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
He also turned back a number of other Trump proposals,m including those aimed at keeping asylum seekers and would-be migrants from Central America in their native countries and processing them in Mexico.
Biden has outsourced responsibility for dealing with the border crisis to Kamala Harris three months after taking up the position; she will travel to the US-Mexico border on Friday, which only announced this week.
According to Boebert’s press release, Led by Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, Republican lawmakers introduced a censure resolution to express their “disapproval of [Biden’s] failure to uphold the constitutional duty to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.’
Based on Representative Boebert:
“My censure bill holds President Biden accountable for his actions—or lack thereof—at the border. Biden has refused to enforce the laws securing our border, he has refused to visit our border, his border czar Kamala has refused to visit the border, and his Secretary of Homeland Security is lying to the American people by saying that our border is closed. Not only has Biden done nothing to secure the border, but he has also actively made it worse by implementing policies that incentivize illegal immigration like amnesty, catch and release, and abolishing the remain in Mexico policy. The result of Biden’s mismanagement is staggering, and the numbers speak for themselves.”
Rep. Andy Biggs, who described the Biden administration as a “total failure,” followed Boebert’s remarks.
“President Biden and Vice President Harris have sent an unequivocal message that they prefer illegal immigrants over Americans. Their radical agenda has erased our southern border. Americans suffer from the Biden policy which has encouraged more than one million illegal border crossings this year which has produced an increased human, sex, and drug trafficking. The American people condemn the Biden Administration’s dereliction of duty.”
Rep. H. Morgan Griffith’s remarked:
“Ensuring the integrity of our borders is one of the most fundamental duties of a president, yet President Biden has destroyed four years of progress at the border to satisfy far-left activists and cheap labor-loving globalists. His reckless determination to reverse every Trump administration policy regardless of the outcome has put every American family and our economy at risk. We must hold President Biden to account for putting politics over the people he has sworn an oath to protect.”
According to Rep. Bob Good:
“The absence of law and order is the breeding ground for criminal activity, within the first four months of the Biden Administration, arrests for murder are already up an astonishing 1,133 percent at the southern border. President Biden’s reckless approach to our southern border is manufacturing a humanitarian crisis. President Biden has undermined his oath and taken Congress’ power into his own hands by granting blanket amnesty and failing to enforce the laws on the books. I am proud to join Congresswoman Boebert in calling for his censure.”
Former Acting Commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan joined the group, claiming that Biden is “now presiding over the worst abandonment of immigration enforcement and border security this country has ever seen.” Because of his activities, our border is in a historic crisis.”
Dan Stein, president of the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR), Rosemary Jenks, director of NumbersUSA, and Eagle Forum President Colleen Holcomb all spoke out against President Biden’s inability to fulfill his responsibilities.
The move to impeach President Biden comes after a CBP study revealed that a record-breaking number of 180,000 migrants were apprehended at the US-Mexico border in May, compared to only 23,000 in 2020.
In two decades, it is the highest figure recorded by the agency.
