Sen. Lindsey Graham weighed-in Thursday on the national emergency taking place along the United States’ southern border with Mexico; confirming that 92% of family members “detained” since September “fail to appear” at their deportation hearings.

“Just met with Acting @ICEgov Director Ron Vitiello. * If March numbers hold, we are on track for 1.2 million illegal immigrants coming into the country in 2019. * Since September 2018, 92% of the 6,000 family members detained fail to appear at their deportation hearing,” posted Graham on social media.

The Senator’s comments come weeks after President Trump declared a “national emergency” at the US-Mexico border; effectively bypassing Congress to secure funding for his long-promised border wall.

Senator Lindsey Graham praised President Trump’s fiery exchange with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer this week; saying the Commander-in-Chief was “sticking to his guns” on border security.

The outspoken legislator vowed to fight “liberal arrogance” surrounding immigration Tuesday afternoon; urging fellow lawmakers to “take it on, stare it down” and “see what happens.”

Graham urged Republicans to “dig in” following the President’s press conference with Democratic leadership, saying “Put DACA on the table and make them say NO to the Wall and DACA.”

GRAHAM SLAM: Sen. Graham EXPLODES on ‘Radical Left’ for Government Shutdown

Sen. Lindsey Graham slammed the “radical left” over the weekend for their role in holding federal workers “hostage” as border security continues to deteriorate; saying “we’re not going to negotiate” with people who call federal agents “Nazis.”

Graham was speaking with CNN’s Face the Nation Sunday when he was asked why he supports President Trump’s $5 billion demand for border security.

“We’re having to negotiate with people who want to abolish ICE, not support ICE. We’re having to negotiate with people who see border patrol agents gassing children, rather than defending our borders as professional law enforcement officers. And we’re negotiating with people who will accuse all of us who support a wall as part of border security as racists. As long as the radical left is in charge, we’re not going to get anywhere. … The goal is to fix a broken immigration system, to bring reality to this table.”
