Young Statement on President Biden’s Border Executive Order

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today released the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s decision to issue a new executive order on immigration: 

“This executive order is an admission that President Biden’s approach to our border has failed. The Administration’s open border policies have created a national security and humanitarian crisis on the U.S. southern border. In his first 100 days in office, President Biden signed 94 executive orders to dismantle his predecessor’s border policies for the simple reason that those policies actually reduced illegal immigration.

“For over three years, I have urged the Biden Administration to reverse course. Record levels of illegal crossings are a national security issue, but also a crime and drug issue in Indiana and across the country. This is too little, too late.”
