Mike Johnson, R-La., is criticizing the White House for blaming House Republicans for the migrant crisis at the border.

Johnson’s memo outlines 64 actions by the Biden administration and illegal immigration milestones that the GOP claims have worsened the border situation.

He urges Biden to take unilateral action on border security and criticizes the rollback of key Trump administration policies. (Trending: First Moon Mission In 50 Years Blasts Off)

Speaker Johnson said, “Since his first day in office, President Biden and his administration have worked to systematically undermine America’s border security.”

“On more than 60 occasions, he has manipulated the federal bureaucracy to open our borders to illegal immigrants, human trafficking, fentanyl, and potential terrorists. The result is a humanitarian and national security catastrophe,” he continued.

“The President must use his executive authority to repair what he has broken. I am calling on him to do so,” added the lawmaker.

The memo also includes data on monthly border encounters and the amount of fentanyl seized at the border.

GOP lawmakers are seeking policy changes in ongoing conversations with the White House.

The House GOP has signaled they will likely seek more conservative reforms than those from the talks.

The Biden administration’s policies are accused of encouraging the historic increase in border encounters.
