 Biden plans executive order to shut down border once crossings reach 4,000 per day — despite saying he needs Congress to act

President Biden is planning executive action that would allow him to shut down the US-Mexico border once the number of migrant crossings reaches 4,000 per day, a source close to the White House told The Post Wednesday.

The order would match a provision in the bipartisan border bill that failed to pass the Senate in February, which gave the president authority to expel migrants when border crossings reached the same daily average.

The legislative proposal would have given the homeland security secretary discretionary authority to carry out removals — but would have made deportations mandatory when illegal entries surpassed 5,000 per day over a one-week period.

A federal government source confirmed to The Post that an executive order to limit entries was coming, though it was unclear when it would be announced.

His obligation as per the oath he swore is to limit illegal migration to 0 per day.

Anything more is dereliction of his oath of office to uphold the law

So 4,000 is the magic number Joe?  ...hmm I bet ya that number is hit right before election time -- and if you're re-elected you'll open it right back up. are you going to close that porous border Joe???

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
