Jim Jordan revealed Joe Biden forced Republicans to make this tough decision

Feb 20, 2024

Jim Jordan had to level with his voters.

There was no other option.

And Jim Jordan revealed Joe Biden forced Republicans to make this tough decision.

The Blaze host Dave Rubin asked House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan point blank if Joe Biden had all the authority he needed to issue executive orders to seal the border.

Biden claims his hands are tied unless Congress passes new laws.  

Biden insists he can’t stop the historic influx of illegal aliens into the country without Congress acting.

Not true, insists conservatives

Conservatives believed this was just a bluff by Biden to bully Republicans into accepting Biden, Chuck Schumer, and Mitch McConnell’s border betrayal bill, which would have granted Joe Biden the statutory authority to ship 5,000 illegal aliens per day into the United States.

Jim Jordan confirmed this was the case, but that he didn’t hold out any great hope Biden would put pen to paper on executive orders to close the border.

“I mean yeah … but he probably won’t stop something that he intentionally started,” Jordan stated. “They did this on purpose — willfully, deliberately, intentionally. They decided that they wanted to change three fundamental policies: no more wall, no more weight in Mexico, [and] once you’re here, you will not be detained.”

Three key Trump-era policies

“They can stop it if they put back in place those policies, but they just don’t want to,” Jordan added for emphasis.

Rubin wondered if Biden was so hell-bent on opening the border despite the political costs – polls show Donald Trump leading Biden by as many as 35 points on this issue – because Democrats believe it will lead to a massive windfall of new voters down the line.

“When you talk to your colleagues on the other side, do they believe it’s intentional? What do they think Biden’s intentions are? This is just a replacement of voters?” Rubin wondered.

Jordan said he had a hard time wrapping his brain around whether Biden actually intended to do the country harm or if it was just simple spite in wanting to chart the exact opposite policy course as Donald Trump.

“That’s the question. Why are they doing it? I gotta believe it’s political. Sometimes I think it’s just, ‘Well President Trump did A, B, and C, so we’re going to do D, E, and F; we’re not going to do what he did, we’re going to do the opposite,’” Jordan responded. 

Jordan, no matter the answer to that question, Republicans only had two options.

Call to use power of the purse

The House Judiciary Committee Chairman explained, “We’re down to two options: [Biden] is not going to fix it, so we can wait for the election … or we can use the power of the Constitution the framers gave us, which is the power of purse.”

Polls show Trump leading Donald Trump.

But every day the border remains open is another day America remains under invasion.

Government funding runs out in early March.

House Republicans could take a stand and refuse to pass any spending bill unless Joe Biden commits to clamping down on the border and takes demonstrable action to prove he shut down the express lane of illegal aliens traversing into the country.
