Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, recently made an appearance on Fox News Channel. During this visit, Lindsey had some harsh words for the way the United States’ southern border is currently being handled.
“If you talk to the Border Patrol agents in charge of trying to police our border, they’re under siege,” Graham said. “They’re American patriots. Right after the election, they told the Biden administration, if you eliminate the Remain in Mexico policy and go back to Catch and Release when it comes to asylum claims, we’ll be overrun.”
Guess what Biden did.
He went back to Catch and release. And it’s having big, big negative consequences.
But Biden continues to neglect the situation. For example, he’s let the secretary of agriculture go without talking to the Border Patrol for the entire duration of his presidency.
“So, he’s telling me about the border,” Graham said. “I’ve been there more times than I can count. I’ve been working on illegal immigration to try to fix it for 15 years. So, you have a cabinet secretary telling me stuff about pull factors, and he hasn’t talked to the Border Patrol in 10 years. So, I’m tired of this crap. So what’s happened here, Brian, is that the Biden administration was put on notice, right after the election, that if you change Trump policies, if you stop building the wall, you go back to catch and release, allow people to come in and make an asylum claim, release them into the interior of the United States, we will be overwhelmed and overrun. And they were right, and nobody in the Biden administration is adjusting. They’re denying the truth.”
