Graham on Biden Immigration Executive Orders

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on President Biden signing executive orders rolling back Trump Administration immigration policies.

“In a matter of weeks, President Joe Biden has rolled back a substantial part of the gains it took years for the Trump Administration to achieve in the fight to stop illegal immigration. 

“The refusal to continue building the border wall and changing Trump asylum policies requiring migrants to wait in Mexico for their court date are formulas for disaster and will create massive future runs on the border.

“The caravans will start to flow again, and America will be under siege once again by new waves of migrants responding to the Biden Administration’s weak policies on immigration. 

“These policies also undercut bipartisan immigration solutions.

“Finally, Democrats should realize – in spite of their intense personal dislike for him – that what President Trump did in securing our border and reforming our asylum laws worked.”
