In his inaugural address from the House floor on Wednesday, Speaker Mike Johnson underscored a series of 64 actions implemented by President Joe Biden's administration that he believes have weakened border security.

The list of actions includes President Biden's directive to halt border wall construction on his first day in office and his proposal for legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

Johnson also highlighted that Biden lifted the "limitations and restrictions against immigration from certain countries associated with terrorism" that were previously enforced by former President Donald Trump.

Furthermore, Biden rescinded Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy, imposed a 100-day moratorium on deportations, and his administration significantly reduced the number of individuals eligible for deportation thereafter.

In addition, the Biden administration suspended agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, which were designed to curb the influx of migrants.

Moreover, the president has expanded the parole of undocumented immigrants making asylum claims in the U.S. to unprecedented levels.

When asked by a reporter on Wednesday, "Have you done everything you can do with executive authority [to address the border crisis]?" Biden responded, "I’ve done all I can do. Just give me the power I asked for the very day I got in office. Give me the Border Patrol. Give me the people that judge [asylum claims]. Give me the people who can stop this and make it work rationally.”

In his first address from the House floor since his appointment as speaker in October, Johnson contended that Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have "designed this catastrophe."

"And now, rather than accept any accountability or responsibility for what they’ve clearly done, President Biden wants to somehow try to shift the blame to Congress," Johnson stated.

Johnson argued that if Biden is genuinely committed to addressing the border crisis, "he needs to demonstrate good faith and take immediate action to secure that border, but he won’t do it."

The consequences of the open border policy have resulted in children being displaced from schools and veterans from nursing homes to accommodate undocumented migrants, according to Johnson.

He also drew attention to the influx of fentanyl and victims of human trafficking into the country, among other issues.

"I am here this morning to beg of my colleagues to help us force the administration to take action," Johnson implored.

He pointed out that since Biden assumed office, there have been over 7 million encounters with migrants entering the U.S. illegally at the southern border and an additional 1.8 million known gotaways.

Of those apprehended, Johnson stated, over 300 are on the terror watch list.

"If so many terrorists were caught attempting to cross our borders, how many have entered undetected?" Johnson questioned. "We suspect it is a much higher number."

"Understand the situation at our border creates a clear and present danger to our national security, and it demands that it be addressed," the speaker asserted.

Johnson referenced a letter he received from former FBI officials expressing their concern about the surge in military-age men crossing the border "from adversarial nations and terrorist regimes."

"These are not huddled masses of families seeking refuge and asylum. These are people coming into our country to do only God knows what," Johnson added. "The Biden administration is allowing it."

Johnson urged the Senate to consider the Secure the Border Act passed by the House last spring and vowed that he will not consent to any agreement that merely facilitates more illegal immigration.

"House Republicans are not here to supply more buckets. We are here to stop the flow," he concluded.
