Powerful US Senator Lindsey Graham wants to impeach Joe Biden over his handling of the United States border.
According to The Daily Wire:
Graham sat for an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro Saturday evening after visiting the U.S.-Mexico border near Yuma, Arizona, one of the hotspots of a surge of illegal immigrants coming into the United States. The South Carolina Republican blasted Biden over his handling of the border, calling the administration “criminally negligent” for providing a pathway for terrorists and others to enter the U.S.
“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 its 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 policies quickly.”
Violence along the border has exploded in recent days, according to Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R). The GOP governor said Sunday that cartel members have begun firing upon Texas National Guard troops across the U.S.-Mexico border. Abbott has dispatched thousands of National Guard troops and state law enforcement to the border in an attempt to curb the flood of illegal immigrants pouring across the border.
This is a powerful statement from Graham on what the current environment in Washington is like.
