Lindsey Graham calls for changes to asylum law, says Trump will mass deport

 January 1, 2024

Fox News reported on Monday that Customs and Border Patrol agents encountered over 300,000 illegal migrants in December, representing a new record.

However, South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham recently said that if former President Donald Trump returns to the White House then many of them should expect removal. 

"They’re going to be going"

According to Breitbart, Graham issued that warning during an interview on Sunday with "Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan.

He told Brennan that "when Trump gets to be President, if he does, if you’re here illegally, you’re going to be deported."

"There’s going to be mass deportation under Donald Trump of people here in violation of the law who have received a final order of deportation. They’re going to be going," he added.

Graham also complained that the Biden administration is "using humanitarian parole, a concept not even in law, to parole people at 145,000 a clip."

Graham calls for reinstatement of Title 42

"I want to go back to the original intent of the law. I don’t want to do anything dramatic. I just want to enforce the law," the South Carolina Republican declared.

Graham went on to reference Title 42, a Trump-era policy under which migrants could be swiftly expelled, saying, "Title 42 authority needs to be reapplied here on the concept that America is full."

"If you have to wait four years for an asylum hearing, let’s slow down the asylum system," Graham continued, adding that those who have already been marked for deportation should be expelled "before we let new people in."

What's more, Graham asserted that existing "asylum laws are being abused" and need to be changed as the current migrant crisis "was created by policy choices."

DOJ threatens Texas over new immigration law

Meanwhile, Fox News reported last week that the White House is threatening to sue Texas over a new law that allows state law enforcement officers to arrest illegal migrants and permits state judges to expel them from the country.

The Department of Justice sent a letter to Texas Gov. Greg Abbot threatening "all appropriate legal remedies to ensure that Texas does not interfere with the functions of the federal government."

However, Abbot spokesperson Renae Eze told Fox News, "Texas is prepared to take this fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to protect Texans and Americans from President Biden’s open border policies."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
