MassGOP Says Joe Biden’s Immigration Executive Order Is Too Little Too Late

June 6, 2024

The Massachusetts Republican Party blasted President Joe Biden after he signed an executive order that he says will reduce the flow of migrants into the country.

As of Wednesday, June 5, migrants who cross into the United States from Mexico cannot receive asylum unless they do so at a port of entry, according to the executive action announced Tuesday, June 4. Biden’s executive order gives him the power to stop migrants from coming into the country during high-volume periods like now, unless they qualify for an exception.

The Massachusetts Republican Party says the announcement does nothing to fix the migrant problems party officials say Biden created.

“President Biden’s executive order comes far too late, as Massachusetts taxpayers expended almost $1 billion on the immigration crisis last year due to outdated state policies, and another $1 billion will be spent this year,” Massachusetts Republican Party chairman Amy Carnevale said in a press release from the party. “This funding comes at the expense of our seniors, veterans, and important community programs. If President Biden were truly serious about border security, the executive order would have been implemented long ago. It’s evident that this action is a mere attempt to boost Biden’s flailing poll numbers and distract from the reality that Biden himself created this immigration crisis.”
