Graham Warns: “Our Border Is So Unsecured That Terrorists Could Get In”
Lindsey Graham appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo. They talked about the state of our border, and how we are overwhelmed with criminals. Graham stressed that the border was not secure and how Dems are making things worse.
Bartiromo asked Graham his take on what he saw at the detention centers.
“I saw a system overwhelmed for no reason. Our laws are set up such so that if you can bring a small child to America coming from Central America, we can only hold the child for 20 days, then we let the entire family go because we don’t want to separate families,” Graham said. “We can’t process a case in 20 days. What did I see…52,000 people have been released into the interior of United States, from this one border patrol area alone. What did I see, is a system about to break… I saw brave men and women who are doing an incredible job under difficult circumstances. I am going to introduce a resolution next week praising the men and women of the border patrol and their allies.
“I also saw that 60 different nations are sending people here illegally. We caught people from Iran, Syria, every place in the world.”
“Our Democratic colleagues are perpetuating a system that is dangerous to children and is going to result in a national security nightmare for America. Because a terrorist could easily get into this group, It would be so easy for a terrorist from Syria, Iran or someplace else…” to come into our country.
Graham also talked about how AOC is lying about the conditions at the border.
“These are criminals, many are repeat offenders. This is not a concentration camp.” Graham focused on how these people need to be held as they are continuously committing crimes and in many cases, they are endangering children. “30% of the people with small children are fake families…” “Children are being exploited…They’re taking this journey, God knows what happens to them along the way.”
Graham is putting together a bill that he hopes will bring some relief to the border. He believes his bill will put “smugglers out of business.” He plans to extend the amount of time people are held for their court hearings and make it so migrants will have to request asylum in their own countries, not at our border.
I hope his bill passes. Because we need to actually address the border crisis, not just talk about it like the Freshman Dems.
