GOP Rep. Steube: Biden could have resolved border crisis “today, yesterday, three years ago” – BUT CHOSE NOT TO
02/05/2024 // Laura Harris // Views

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) has criticized the Biden administration for its reluctance to address the ongoing border crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

In a recent interview with host Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business Network's "Mornings with Maria," the Florida congressman claimed that President Joe Biden could have taken corrective actions long before the situation reached its current state.

"He could shut it down today, yesterday, three years ago. But they don’t want that. It doesn't match their political objective, so they're going to try to subvert and blame Republicans that we haven't sent him some bills and we haven’t given him more money to basically hire more border agents to process more illegals into our country."

Steube's remarks came after House Speaker Mike Johnson argued that the number of daily crossings should be reduced to zero. "Any border shutdown authority that allows even one illegal crossing is a non-starter. Thousands each day is outrageous. It shouldn’t be 5,000 a day before anything gets done. The number must be zero," Johnson posted on X.

Elsewhere in the program, Steube took the opportunity to remind viewers that the House had passed the Secure the Border Act in May 2023. He accused Senate Democrats, specifically House Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), of misleading the public by suggesting that a bill needs to pass for necessary actions to be taken. Steube also mentioned that his GOP colleagues sent a Secure Border Bill to the Senate in May 2023, but "it sat there and languished because they don't want border security."

"That's an outright lie to the American people. Joe Biden doesn't need a bill to reverse what he changed when he became president. We had all these policies in place that the Trump administration had in place – the border wall being built," Steube said.

Biden trying to blame Republicans for the border crisis

According to Steube, the policies of the Trump administration, including the construction of a border wall, were effective in curbing illegal immigration. He argued that Biden could have implemented these measures without waiting for a new bill, but he did not. (Related: National Border Patrol Council president says the only way to fix the border crisis is to re-elect Trump.)

The representative for the Sunshine State also accused the administration of attempting to shift blame onto Republicans for not passing a new bill or allocating more funds for border security.

In December, Biden responded to the staggering 300,000 recorded incidents of illegal immigrant crossings at the southern border. He said: "Well, we gotta do something. They [Republicans] ought to give me the money I need to protect the border."

However, critics argue that the issue extends beyond a simple lack of funding, asserting that it reflects a lack of political will. They reject the narrative that additional funding is the solution, claiming that the funds requested were primarily for processing agents rather than enhancing border protection.

Meanwhile, the Republican Party has urged Biden to focus on enforcing existing immigration laws. "Build the wall and enforce the law," it posted on X.
