After facing backlash for not addressing the border crisis in his national address, President Biden is turning the blame on the former Trump administration in an interview with TODAY saying: “They Didn’t Have Beds! They Didn’t Plan!” This comes over 100 days since Biden’s presidency began and over a month since he named Vice President Harris his border czar. Neither has visited the border during that time.

Craig Melvin interviewed Biden, and asked him about immigration, saying “Immigration was not one of the crises that demanded urgent action in January. Does it demand urgent action now?”

“It is getting urgent action now,” Biden defended. He later made excuses, saying the previous administration left the immigration department “understaffed.”

Even though illegal immigrants are being apprehended at a 20-year high, Biden said that is to be expected. According to him, immigration ebbs and flows seasonally.

“They didn’t plan for the overflow,” Biden said.

20 states suing Biden administration over migrant parole program

President Joe Biden has expanded a humanitarian parole program  leading to a significant increase of migrants entering the United States illegally each month. As a result, 20 states have geared up to sue the Biden administration.

Tuesday, 20 Republican states and conservative legal group America First Legal, announced their plans to sue the White House over the legality of the administration’s parole program. The program “allows up to 30,000 migrants from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela into the homeland each month” reports Foreign Desk News.

Reports shoot the lawsuit was filed by Texas, the America First Legal and the other states in the Southern District of Texas in hopes to block the parole program.

Foreign Desk News reports of the history:

In October, the administration announced the program for Venezuelans, allowing a limited number to fly directly into the U.S. as long as they had not entered illegally, had a sponsor already, and passed certain checks. In early January, President Biden announced that the program would expand to include Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Cubans, allowing up to 30,000 a month into the U.S.

The program also allows migrants to receive work permits and a two-year authorization to live in the U.S. and was announced alongside an expansion of Title 42 expulsions to include those nationalities.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs argue that the program is unlawful given the “exceptionally limited” parole power the federal government has, adding that they have up to 360,000 migrants that could be allowed into the homeland a year.

The suit’s focus is on the limits placed on parole by Congress, saying that the authority is to be used on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”

“Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

“The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that is increasing crime and violence in our streets, overwhelming local communities, and worsening the opioid crisis. This unlawful amnesty program, which will invite hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S. every year, will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.”
