Speaker Johnson reveals what Biden told him about the border

 March 9, 2024

U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), the current speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, recently disclosed a shocking revelation that President Joe Biden allegedly made to him about the southern border crisis. 

Johnson did so multiple times this past week, including during an appearance Friday on the Fox News Channel's America's Newsroom. 

Biden: "Well, Mexico . . ."

During his Fox appearance, Johnson talked about how he has been pushing Biden to use his executive authority to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

Johnson, in particular, says that he has been encouraging Biden to reinstate the Remain in Mexico policy. This was the policy that former President Donald Trump used to reduce illegal immigration by requiring immigrants who illegally cross into the United States to "remain in Mexico" while their immigration case makes it through the courts.

"If he would just do one executive order and reinstate Remain in Mexico, the border patrol, the people in charge, say it would reduce the flow by 70 percent," Johnson told Fox.

It was at this point that Johnson made a rather shocking revelation.

Johnson said, "I told [Biden] that, I said, 'Why won't you do it?' He goes, 'Mexico doesn't want to do that.'"

Did Biden really say that?

We are relying here on Johnson's account of what Biden allegedly said, so we don't know for sure. But, if Biden did say it, then it is fairly surprising - surprising to think that the president of the United States is essentially taking orders from Mexico.

Johnson made the same claim on Thursday, the day before his Fox News appearance. This time Johnson told reporters what Biden said, and the speaker added some extra details.

Johnson said:

How do you reduce the flow? The answer is simple. You reinstate Remain in Mexico, that alone would reduce the flow by 70 percent — that’s their estimate. I told the president that at the White House again. He acted as though he had never heard that, didn’t understand, said he couldn’t do it. I said, "That’s not true." "Well, Mexico doesn’t want that," [Biden said].

The House speaker then told reporters that he responded to Biden by saying, "Mr. President. We’re the United States, Mexico will do what we say, OK. President Trump did it. Why can’t you do it?"


A record amount of illegal immigration continues to take place under the administration of Biden. Upon taking office, Biden infamously repealed Trump's stringent and effective border policies, which precipitated the crisis that has followed.

Now, however, it is an election year and Biden is getting hammered in the polls on the issue of illegal immigration.

So, Biden is trying to make it appear as though he is addressing the issue, when, in actuality, he is not.
