Senator Lindsey Graham called-out Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday for “worrying about children under Trump” but remaining totally silent about the spiraling crisis taking place at the southern border under Joe Biden.
“Where is AOC? Why aren’t you at the border looking at the things being reported. If you were worried about children under Trump being in bad conditions, this is worse,” said Graham.

Senator Lindsey Graham weighed-in Wednesday on the upcoming 2022 midterm elections; saying Donald Trump is the most “consequential Republican in the country” and “we’re going to need his help” to re-take Congress.
“How are you going to run some of these races?” asked one reporter.
“President Trump is the most consequential Republican in the country. He’s the leader of the party. For us to be successful in 2022, we’re going to need his help,” said Graham.
“The fact that the Democrats blame Trump says a lot about their playbook. No matter what the problem, Trump caused it. They caused this. They changed policies that were working,” he added. “That’s why you have more asylum seekers. The fact that President Biden has not visited the border is pretty astonishing to me.”

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador blamed US President Joe Biden for the massive influx of migrants from Central America moving across the United States’ southern border Wednesday; saying he signaled they would be “treated better” than the Trump administration.
“Expectations were created that with the government of President Biden there would be a better treatment of migrants. And this has caused Central American migrants, and also from our country, wanting to cross the border thinking that it is easier to do so,” Obrador told reporters.
“People don’t go to the United States for fun, they go out of necessity,” he added.
“They see [Biden] as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to reach the United States,” said the Mexican President. “We need to work together to regulate the flow, because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next.”

Furious Republican lawmakers sent a scathing letter to the Department of Homeland Security this week after the agency reportedly released illegal migrants into the United States without court dates.
“Despite your repeated claims that ‘the border is secure,’ these reports raise serious questions about DHS’ commitment to faithfully enforcing the law,” said the statement signed by 14 legislators.
“Multiple Border Patrol agents confirmed the new process to Fox News, revealing that they have been directed to use prosecutorial discretion to forgo the hours-long process of paperwork required to issue an NTA amid the surge of migrants at the border,” reports Fox News.
“Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Tuesday released photos of crowded facilities, including children sleeping shoulder-to-shoulder on mats on the floor with aluminum blankets and on benches,” adds Fox.
President Biden urged migrants from Central America and Mexico not to travel to the United States this week; shifting tones from his 2019 campaign when urged them to “come” to the country if they’re being “oppressed.”
“They deserve to be heard. That’s who we are,” Biden said at the time. “We’re a nation that says, ‘You want to flee, and you’re fleeing oppression, you should come.'”

Apparently, the President has changed his views.

“I can say quite clearly don’t come over,” Biden told ABC’s George Stephanopolous in an interview last week. “So don’t leave your town or city or community. We’re gonna make sure we have facilities in those cities and towns run by department of — by DHS and also access with HHS, the Health and Human Services, to say you can apply for asylum from where you are right now.”
