Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) speculated Friday that President Biden’s staff is keeping him from taking executive action to stem the flow of migrants on the southern border.

“He knows that he has the authority. We’ve documented it for him. I’ve read to him the law myself — to the president. Read him the provisions of the law and said, ‘Mr. President, please take action,’” Johnson said on Fox Business on Friday morning.

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

Johnson has been pressing Biden for weeks to take executive action on border and migration policy — including by reinstating the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy and restarting construction of the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border — and arguing he does not need new authority from Congress to do so.
