Republican Senator Lindsey Graham used to be good friends with Joe Biden.
“If you can’t admire Joe Biden as a person,” Graham once told a reporter, “then you got a problem.”
“You need to do some self-evaluation. ‘Cause what’s not to like?” Graham added.
Graham has finally changed his tune following multiple disastrous decisions by the Biden administration on the U.S. southern border as well as the deadly U.S. troop withdrawal in Afghanistan.
“Joe Biden is criminally negligent,” Graham told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro.
Lindsey Graham is calling for the impeachment of Biden over the ongoing border crisis.
“There’s been 100% increase in fentanyl seizures at the Yuma sector alone,” Graham continued. “Our borders are completely open, they’re porous, people are pouring in, drugs are pouring in.”
“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.”
Graham continued, “His administration, I think, is criminally negligent when it comes to controlling our border.”
“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,” he added.
“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.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also spoke out about the crisis on the southern border.
Abbott revealed that the cartels have started firing at the Texas National Guard troops.
Illegals continue to storm the southern border, Abbott explained.
“And the cartels on the Mexican side of the border, they’re beginning to open fire on the National Guard that Texas has down on the border to secure the border,” Abbott told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.
“This is escalating into a firing war on each side of the border where Texas and our National Guard are having to defend themselves and defend the state of Texas.”
“And so what Texas is having to do, we’re having to step up and guard multiple points across the entire border,” Abbott said.
“The Biden administration has completely abandoned all the people who live on the border, and they’ve abandoned people in the state of Texas, and Maria, these are counties and these are people who traditionally have voted Democrat that the Biden administration is ignoring, and he’s putting them in danger.”
