Sen. Graham: 'Where Is the Commander-in-Chief When It Comes to This Crisis?'

( – As wave after wave of migrants cross into the United States, President Joe Biden isn’t saying or doing anything about it.

The Supreme Court on Monday temporarily halted the lifting of Title 42, the public health order that was supposed to expire on Wednesday. The Biden administration has until 5 p.m. Tuesday to respond to the stay.

“Where is the commander-in-chief when it comes to this crisis?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked during an appearance on Fox News Monday night:

“President Biden could change this with a stroke of a pen. I’m calling on President Biden tonight to reinstate Title 42 by executive action. That’s one thing to do. Number two, I will introduce a bill, you get behind it, President Biden, we’ll get 80 votes in the Senate to make it a statute. 

“You have the power to reimpose this policy if you choose. He’s choosing to allow Title 42 authority to go away. He’s choosing to allow the number of illegal immigrants to come into our country to double. He’s choosing that,” Graham said.


‘Where is AOC?’

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.) is the leftist congresswoman who cried about overcrowded conditions at the border when Donald Trump was president — when conditions were not as dire as they are now, given the record-breaking migrant flows.

“Where is AOC?” Graham asked on Monday.

“You want to take look at a humanitarian nightmare, go to our border. I can’t believe the president of the United States has not visited the border. He is the commander-in-chief.

“You have got the governor of California, a Democrat, who went to the border and said, if we repeal Title 42, you’ll destroy California. You have got the mayor of New York City, a Democrat, suggesting if Title 42 is changed, it will overwhelm New York City. Where’s the commander-in-chief, Jesse? This is no longer funny. This is no longer a joke. 

“El Paso has declared a state of emergency. 14,000 pounds ever fentanyl have come across this broken border. The border’s not open. It’s been obliterated by the policies of Biden. He has surrendered the border. Where is the commander-in-chief when it comes to this crisis?”

Earlier this month, Biden went to Arizona, but he did not visit the border while he was there. He told reporters, “There are more important things going on.”

Democrats say Republicans are encouraging illegal migration with their complaints about an “open border.”

But Biden himself rolled out the welcome mat, even before he was president.

During a primary season debate in September 2019, Biden said: “I would, in fact, make sure that there is — we immediately surge to the border all those people who are seeking asylum. They deserve to be heard. That’s who we are. We’re a nation that says, you want to flee, and you’re fleeing oppression, you should come.”

And come they have, with no letup in sight.
