Last Saturday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that President Joe Biden deserves to be impeached over how he has handled the border.
Graham recently sat for an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro after he had visited the U.S.-Mexico border near Yuma, Arizona. This area has become known as one of the hotspots of the surge of illegal immigrants flooding into the United States. However, this Republican from South Caroina continues to blast Biden over how he has handled the border, and saying that the administration is “criminally negligent” because their lax handling of the border has provided a pathway for terrorists and others to enter the United States.
“There’s been 100% increase in fentanyl seizures at the Yuma sector alone. Our borders are completely open, they’re porous, people are pouring in, drugs are pouring in,” Graham said. “Here’s what I worry about: Terrorists getting in the middle of this group and killing a bunch of us. The incompetence in Afghanistan of turning Afghanistan over to the terrorists, the Taliban, will allow Al Qaeda and ISIS to roam freely and an open border are going to meet one day and some terrorist is going to take advantage of this system, come here and kill a bunch of us if we don’t change.”
“Joe Biden is criminally negligent. His administration, I think, is criminally negligent when it comes to controlling our border,” he continued. “Our men and women of the Border Patrol and ICE are under siege. They’re American heroes. You just would not believe what it’s like to work along the border. I don’t know how they do it and they’ve been completely abandoned by President Biden. He should be impeached over this. This is dereliction of duty and a bunch of Americans are going to get killed if we don’t change our ways.”
Somewhere, Donald Trump is saying “I told you so.” And unfortunately, many people are coming around to the conclusion that just because someone is a little rough around the edges, that doesn’t mean they would make a bad president. Moreover, they are also realizing that just because someone has been a career politician, that doesn’t necessarily mean they would make a good politician either.
