House Speaker Mike Johnson expressed doubt that Joe Biden is making decisions regarding immigration policies, suggesting that Biden’s staff is preventing him from taking executive action to secure the U.S. border.

Johnson has been trying to convince Biden to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico” policy and resume building the border wall, but Biden insists he lacks the authority to do so.

The possibility of a border deal in the Senate is uncertain, and Johnson remains skeptical about its potential impact.

“He knows that he has the authority,” Johnson said. “We’ve documented it for him.”

“I’ve read to him the law myself — to the president,” he added. “Read him the provisions of the law and said, ‘Mr. President, please take action.’”

“I don’t think he’s allowed to do it,” Johnson said.

“I’m not sure Joe Biden is actually making these decisions,” he said. “I think it’s staff around him, and they’re pushing him to hold the — or to keep the border open.”

“They’ve been trying to work this deal. We’ve heard rumor about it, reports about it. But even as we sit here this morning, Maria, I’ve never seen the text,” Johnson said.

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has refused to allow a vote on H.R. 2 in the Senate, but a newly negotiated deal will be available soon.

“The devil is in the details. We’ll check it out,” Johnson said. “I’m not prejudging anything, but I’ve told them the necessary elements of H.R. 2 are what are required to get control of the border.

“I’ve been consistent, and that’s our standard,” he said. “We’ll be looking for that.”
