The Republican Study Committee on Monday released a new report claiming President Joe Biden's policies on immigration have caused "an ongoing humanitarian disaster," and a "crisis" on the southern border.
"Over the next few months, Americans will watch the crisis on our border worsen. They will see the consequences of the radical left's recklessness in real time," reads the memo, which was obtained by Fox News.
"And every one of those consequences can be traced back to Joe Biden because every major change in our immigration policy since Inauguration Day was made unilaterally through the executive branch."
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said last week migrants thinking of coming to the U.S. should "wait" until the administration can fix the country’s "gutted" immigration system, though he dismissed a question about whether there is a "crisis" at the border.
"The men and women of the Department of Homeland Security are working around the clock seven days a week to ensure that we do not have a crisis at the border — that we manage the challenge, as acute as the challenge is," Mayorkas said.
"It takes time to build out of the depths of cruelty that the administration before us established," he added. "What we are seeing now at the order is the immediate result of the dismantlement of the system and the time that it takes to rebuild it virtually from scratch."
