The Biden administration claims the border ‘is not open.’ No one else joins them in that sentiment; particularly states, residents, leaders and agents being affected on a daily basis.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) wants the answer to a very pointed and imperative question: “Where is the commander in chief when it comes to the border crisis?”

While speaking with Fox News’ Jesse Waters, Senator Graham expressed the Biden administration’s failures at the border. “We went from the lowest crossings when Trump was president to the highest of all time” the Senator explains.

With the pending lapse of Title 42, Senator Graham stated, “I am calling one President Biden tonight to reinstate Title 42 by executive action. That’s one thing to do. Number two, I’ll introduce a bill. You get behind hit President Biden and we’ll get 80 votes in the Senate to make it a statute.”

Graham continues, “[Biden] is choosing to allow Title 42 authority to go away. He is choosing to allow the number of illegal immigrants to come into our country to double. He is choosing that.”

Additionally, Graham stated:

“If you want to 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’ve 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 the mayor of New York City, a Democrat, suggesting that if Title 42 is changed, it will overwhelm New York City.”

“El Paso has declared a state of emergency. Fourteen thousand pounds of fentanyl have come across this broken border. The border is 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?”

“Title 42 authority allows the United States to deport people [in the country illegally] based on a COVID problem without a whole lot of delay. It is a tool that actually works. There are thousands of people waiting for it to expire. We are going to double the number of illegal immigrants literally in about 48 hours because people are waiting for Title 42 to go away. The President of the United States could by the stroke of a pen keep the policy in place or he could ask Congress to pass a law to reinstate Title 42. He is choosing not to do this. He is choosing to allow illegal immigration to double in 48 hours.”

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.

At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.

The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”

In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.

“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”

He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.

The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.

“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
