FAIR Applauds Speaker Johnson’s Unequivocal Commitment to Including House Border Security Bill in the Foreign Aid Package
(Washington, D.C., Jan. 3, 2024) “Today, Speaker Mike Johnson and 64 House Republicans visited our beleaguered southern border to get a firsthand look at the disaster wrought by President Biden and his Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas. Speaker Johnson described what his delegation witnessed as ‘heartbreaking and infuriating,’ and vowed to take action in the coming weeks to end the crisis.
“The speaker was unequivocal: The aid package that President Biden is requesting to assist our allies in defending their security must include the language of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act, passed by the House last May in order to safeguard the security of our own nation.
“FAIR also applauds House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green who laid the blame for the national security and humanitarian crisis squarely at the feet of Secretary Mayorkas. Sadly, but undeniably, Secretary Mayorkas is ‘the greatest domestic threat to the national security and the safety of the American people’ and must be removed from office.
“FAIR, along with the vast majority of the American people, looks forward to both of these commitments being carried out in the coming weeks.”
