Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and 18 other House Republicans have sent a letter to President Joe Biden asking him to deal with the immigration crisis and enforce the country’s immigration laws.
The letter explained that Biden’s open border policies were negatively impacting their constituents in border states and other states across the country.
“Your de facto policy of an open southern border is neither humane nor compassionate,” the letter read.
“Under our Constitution, Congress has plenary authority over immigration and has never given the President the power to provide a pseudo-amnesty nor the ability to meet inaction on unlawful presence under the laws of our nation as a lawful presence,” it continued.
The letter also referenced private property damage and threats to the safety of border town farmers, ranchers and other business owners. “The spread of this criminality threatens to make every town in America a border town. This is profoundly wrong,” the letter concluded.
