Senator warns: ‘It’s just a matter of time’ before a terrorist comes across border and kills Americans

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave a stark and brutal warning on Friday, stating on the “Faulkner Focus” that it’s “just a matter of time” before terrorists come across our southern border and kill Americans.

Graham discussed the “low morale” of the Border Patrol with host Harris Faulkner who noted that in November alone, three agents committed suicide. He’s also extremely concerned about the national security risk that Democrats and President Biden have created on the border as Title 42 expires on December 21.

“It’s just a matter of time until somebody comes across that border and kills a bunch of Americans because they’re a terrorist,” he bluntly told Faulkner.

Over 73,000 illegal immigrants got past Border Patrol agents in November according to Fox News. That’s the highest number ever recorded at the southern border.

Per Fox News, “The number of ‘gotaways’ refers to the number of illegal immigrants who have evaded overwhelmed Border Patrol agents and have been detected by other forms of surveillance but not caught. It does not count those who were not spotted.”

Graham asserted that Border Patrol Agents feel “abandoned” by Biden and are under intense pressure as the crisis continues to spiral out of control.

“Well if you are a Border Patrol agent, you feel abandoned by the Biden Administration. I’ve been to the Border Patrol — border many times. I don’t know how they go home at night and get up the next day. They’re seeing human trafficking at a level I’ve never seen. They’re overwhelmed with illegal immigrants coming in. People on the terrorist watch list are going right through. So to be a Border Patrol agent under Biden is one of the most miserable experiences I can imagine. To be in charge of protecting America, and the administration you work for will not give you the tools to do your job is very bad for morale,” he pointed out and then called on House Republicans to hold hearings in the new Congress on the crisis.

The senator admonished that Republicans should “put on the table impeaching people responsible for this. Biden has surrendered the border.

The Senate Budget Committee ranking member repeated that the border is at massive risk for terrorism and charged that Biden’s administration had laid out a “welcome mat for terrorists” because he has left the southern border wide open.

“You’re going to see an increased number of illegal drugs coming in, particularly fentanyl, that will kill more and more Americans,” claimed Graham.

Fentanyl is already killing many, many Americans each year and the Biden administration has done nothing to curtail it so far.

“You’re going to see pressure on border communities where the community collapses under the weight. It’s just a matter of time before terrorists that are rising in Afghanistan and Syria will make their way through the border to attack us. Their desire to attack us hasn’t stopped,” he said pointing out the obvious.

He charged that the expiration of Title 42 will throw “gasoline on the fire” of the crisis.

“The Biden administration took all the border security measures of the Trump administration and changed them overnight,” he accused laying the catastrophe right at the president’s feet.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas has repeatedly and outrageously claimed that the border is secure when it is demonstrably not. So have other Biden administration officials. This has incensed Republicans who are now retaking control of the House of Representatives and are prepping impeachment procedures against Mayorkas and others for it.

“Look, the border is secure,” the DHS secretary said in July. “We are working to make the border more secure. That has been a historic challenge.”

Meanwhile, a senior source within Customs and Border Protection evidently told Breitbart Texas that the Department of Homeland Security is “not engaged in any substantive planning to confront the expected surge in migration once Title 42 is lifted per court order.”
