Senator Lindsey Graham (R- S.C.) warned Fox News viewers on Tuesday night that they should live in fear of the migrant influx at the border because they could become a national security crisis as the children crossing today “could easily be terrorists tomorrow,” reports The Daily Beast.
The Republican senator told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the Southern border with Mexico has become a “great way for terrorists to come into our country.”
“Word is out that the Trump policies are being replaced by the Biden administration [policy] that if you get one foot in America, you are never going to leave,” Graham said.
“Word is out that the Trump policies are being replaced by the Biden administration [policy] that if you get one foot in America, you are never going to leave,” Graham claimed.
“People will be coming … by the hundreds of thousands by the summer. It is a humanitarian crisis. It’s going to be an economic crisis for our cities along the border, and eventually is going to be a national security crisis, because they’re children today but they could easily be terrorists tomorrow.”
Graham’s shocking remark was quickly denounced online.
“Go f**k yourself!” tweeted one Twitter user, while another wrote: “Wow. Or they could be future scientists, Nobel peace prize winners, or public servants.”
“That’s just vile,” another tweeted.
