In an interview with Fox Business Channel, Johnson said Vice President Kamala Harris, named by Biden as “crisis manager,” is aware of the surge of illegal immigration to the U.S. but is not working to stem the problem.
The reason, Johnson suggested, is the Biden administration’s goal of remaking the American electorate with foreign-born voters to secure a permanent political majority.
“[Kamala Harris] is awol and she was on my committee and we held something like 30 hearings on border insecurity … and problems with human trafficking,” Johnson said:
So she should be fully aware of this, she is fully aware of this and yet this administration wants complete open borders. And you have to ask yourself ‘Why?’ Is it really because they want to remake the demographics of America to ensure that they stay in power forever? Is that what’s happening here? Because the human depredations that are being caused by their policies are just untold. It’s completely unconscionable. [Emphasis added]
This week, Washington Post columnist Michele Norris admitted that the nation’s “demographic reshuffling” will “alter our culture, our politics, and who has the reins of power.”
This much is clear: The demographic reshuffling already underway will alter our culture, our politics and who has the reins of power. Much of the Republican agenda is fueled by a fear of this future. Corporations that want to embrace that future — and the wave of consumers it will bring — cannot continue to partner with a party that is only interested in representing the part of America it finds acceptable.

In his first months in office, Biden has implemented a series of executive actions that have ended border controls, gutted interior immigration enforcement, and dismantled former President Trump’s reforms to lower legal immigration levels to boost jobs and wages for Americans.
Pew Research Center analysts wrote this month:
The Biden administration is acting on a number of fronts to reverse Trump-era restrictions on immigration to the United States. The steps include plans to boost refugee admissions, preserving deportation relief for unauthorized immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and not enforcing the ‘public charge’ rule that denies green cards to immigrants who might use public benefits like Medicaid.
Biden, in early February, signed an executive order specifically designed to boost legal immigration levels by ordering federal agencies to increase U.S. naturalization rates.
Already, the U.S. naturalizes hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants every year. In 2019, for instance, more than 843,500 legal immigrants became naturalized citizens — an 11 percent increase from the year before when nearly 762,000 legal immigrants became naturalized citizens.
Legal immigrants from Mexico dominate the naturalization process, as well as nationals from India, the Phillippines, China, and Cuba. California, with nearly 150,000 newly naturalized citizens in 2019, has the highest rate of any state in the country. Texas, with 97,675 naturalizations in 2019, follows along with Florida with more than 96,000 naturalizations in 2019.
Data over the last few election cycles have repeatedly shown the impact that a growing foreign-born voting population has in terms of electing Democrats over Republicans. In 2020, about 1-in-10 U.S. voters were born outside the country, the highest rate since 1970.
A significant increase in naturalization rates ahead of the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election could deliver big gains for Democrats as margins in a number of swing states have been small over the last two presidential elections. In Pennsylvania, for example, Biden won the state by less than 81,000 votes.
The Washington Post, New York Times, the Atlantic, Axios, the Los Angeles Times, and the Wall Street Journal have all admitted that rapid demographic changes because of immigration are tilting the nation toward a permanent Democrat dominance.
“The single biggest threat to Republicans’ long-term viability is demographics,” Axios acknowledged last year. “The numbers simply do not lie … there’s not a single demographic megatrend that favors Republicans.”
Current legal immigration levels are expected to bring in 15 million new foreign-born voters by 2041. About eight million of those voters will have arrived entirely due to the process known as “chain migration” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S.
