Lindsey Graham blasts Biden's border policy as a 'recipe for disaster'

 


Republican senator of south carolina

lindsey graham senator thank you so much

for being here tonight i know that you

were at the border in arizona last week

we will talk about that in just a second

but first your reaction to

this crisis that we've seen before now

under the biden administration

well the worst is yet to come the bible

administration's done everything but put a neon

sign flashing come on in

i was just dumbfounded by what i found

at the border

the asylum seekers are coming again so

what happened in the old system if you

could get one foot katie into the united states

and claimed asylum you would be

processed in the united states

you would be released and your court

date would be four years in the future

nobody would ever show up ankle braces

included

so what did trump do he said if you come

here seeking asylum we're going to keep

you in mexico

and you've got to wait there to court

here and guess what people are not going

to pay 20 thousand dollars

to come from central america to set

mexico for four years

so it shut the asylum claims off they're

about to do away with the remaining

mexico policy

the word is out all over central america

uh that the asylum laws are about to

change

deportations are stopping and they

literally have stopped building the wall

there's a section of wall near nogales

arizona on the mexican u.s

border where they have holes in the wall

big enough to get tank columns through

the the panel is sitting there waiting

to be put up but they just won't put it

up

so this is a formula for disaster it's a

witch's brew

and the biden administration is clueless

when it comes to what they're doing

you know senator i think the american

people get very frustrated with this

topic because

it's a big complex topic that gets

politicized for elections and therefore

nothing ever gets done and we continue

to have these conversations

about the crisis and i want to talk

tonight about what we're seeing

right now in places like texas with

unaccompanied minors getting to

the border last in january last month 5

800 of them

let's talk about how they don't just

show up at the border they're not

getting dropped off by

their parents they're getting smuggled

to the border their parents are not with them

and then they are oftentimes at least

during the obama administration getting

placed with sponsors

who happen to be sex offenders or

exploiting them for labor purposes

so now here we are with the biden white

house saying

we have to keep these people and these

children in these facilities which they

previously called

concentration camps because we have this


problem


so talk about that the issue of


unaccompanied minors specifically since


we're seeing that spike


okay number one word is out in central


america that the policies are changing


so uh during the trump administration we


would take the unaccompanied


minor and we'd send them back to their


home country we actually had agreements


with the northern triangle countries


that you could apply for asylum there


regarding the united states and you


never have to come into our country


and we also had an agreement to send the


kids back so what you see


is you see thousands of unaccompanied


minors coming to our border


turning themselves in we're going to


hold them and release them into the


country


98 percent of them will stay in america


and here's the untold story


most of them have family in the united


states this


is a business and the cartels are in


this business big time


and a lot of these girls are getting


abused and what what the binding


administration is doing


is they're turning on the faucet again


at every level


and people are responding and it's a


real tragedy in the making


well many of the family members who are


here are here


illegally but i want to talk about the


democrats hypocrisy on this because


they've used some very incendiary


rhetoric the trump the biden


campaign uses rhetoric to beat donald


trump they use the compassionate


argument let's play


some of what democrats have said about


these facilities that the dividing


administration now is using


the united states is running


concentration camps on our southern


border


and that is exactly


what they are they are concentration


camps these are like concentration camps


and i'm not afraid to use that word


there are camps and people are being


concentrated this is very simple


for 40 years before auschwitz we had


concentration camps what we're doing now


fits very cleanly inside that tradition


so senator they're now calling the same


exact facilities


influx centers now that it's biden yeah


yeah hypocrisy runs rampant here so


kamala harris


when she was running for president


actually protested outside of the


miami facility where they were holding


unaccompanied minors


that facility is now open aoc called the


facility in texas a concentration camp


at least she's consistent about


complaining but i just got back from the


border


i spent time with the border patrol


agents the customs and border agents who


secure our border and collect the


customs and duties


and protect us it was miserable for them


to be compared


to nazi concentration camp guards


these people are great patriotic


americans


doing the best they can being


overwhelmed and to be treated that way


is just unbelievable


but where are these critics now where


are you now the bible administration is


doing the same damn thing


so here's my suggestion the body


administration look at the trump


policies that worked


reimplement them sit down with


republicans like me and see if we can


fix the thing


yeah well you mentioned where are the


critics where have they been where are


they now they've been there in the past


you had glenn greenwald tweeting


about this exact thing with the media he


said it's not an exaggeration i've seen


more news articles in the last 48 hours


discussing how complex difficult


challenging and vexing is the problem of


miners and other immigrants at the


border


than i did in the prior four years


combined wonder why


this reminds me of 2014 when town hall


where i work


where i write and report on a lot of


issues we published some of the first


photos from these initial


crisis when it came to unaccompanied


minors so why is it that all of a sudden


the media is changing their tune


because trump is gone trump actually


found a way to work with mexico to help


everybody


he mexico said okay we'll take care of


these asylum seekers so they don't


overrun your country


you help us he actually had agreements


with uh northern triangle nations like


honduras where you could apply for


asylum


there and not overrun our border he


actually improved the economies of the


northern triangle countries


the the criticism against trump was over


the top


and here's what's so sad and quite


frankly dangerous


biden is undoing everything that trump


did that worked


there's a disaster in the making at the


border if they don't change these


policies


by the summer there's going to be a


million people overrun our border


their girls are going to be taken down


these trails and raped and abused and


again the body administration has done


everything they can


but put up a neon sign on the border


saying come on in


all right well we'll leave it there


obviously this is something that many


administrations have struggled with that


congress has struggled with and we will


certainly be following in the future


senator graham thank you so much


thank you
