Sen. Lindsey Graham says Biden should be hoping for SCOTUS to rule in favor of presidential immunity

 June 24, 2024

The U.S. Supreme Court will soon hand down a ruling on former President Donald Trump's presidential immunity claim. 

While the ruling will have an immediate and massive effect on the legal issues the former president still faces, it will also have a massive impact on President Joe Biden.

According to Breitbart, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) believes Biden should be praying for the Supreme Court to rule in favor of presidential immunity to protect him from prosecution over his disastrous and deadly failures at the southern U.S. border.

The South Carolina senator suggested that without presidential immunity, Biden could be prosecuted for nursing student Laken Riley's murder, given that it was a result of his failed border policies.

Graham throws down

Graham held nothing back in his assessment of the situation, which came about during a recent interview on this week's "Fox News Sunday."

"The border is beyond broken. You have wars in Ukraine. You have the Mideast on fire. When it comes to enforcing the law, Joe Biden has been beyond reckless. He’s taken a parole statute that’s limited in nature and has given a million people parole when, on average, the Trump and [Obama] administrations gave 5,600 people parole," Graham said.

He added, "Laken Riley’s murderer was paroled because they had lack of capacity in El Paso."

Graham went on to claim that he believes the illegal immigrants who committed such horrible crimes were "illegally" let go into the country, placing the blame squarely on Biden.

"On and on and on, all these women who have been raped and murdered have one thing in common, the people that killed them, raped them and murdered them were in our custody and let go, I think illegally," he said.

Graham added, "So Joe Biden better hope and pray there’s presidential immunity because when he allowed the killer of Laken Riley to be released on parole because of lack of capacity, I think he’s subject not only to a lawsuit but criminal prosecution if there’s not presidential immunity."

Social media reacts

Given the gravity of Graham's statements and claim about potential prosecution, social media reacted to the interview. Many of them expressed skepticism.

"Republicans will not do anything," one X user wrote.

Another X user wrote, "Lindsey Graham said so huh? Well it must be true then. Hahaha."
