In a tweet, Graham said, “With all due respect, this press conference is hard to watch. The misinformation being given by President Biden on immigration is stunning.”
“It’s clear he does not have the situational awareness he needs to understand what is going on at the border or how to fix it,” he added.
The Trump policies created dramatic decreases in illegal immigration.
The changes made by President Biden have created a virtual human tsunami.

He went on to claim that former President Donald Trump’s policies “created dramatic decreases in illegal immigration,” while Biden’s have “created a virtual human tsunami.”
During his press conference, Biden denied that his policies have led to a surge in immigration, as IJR reported.
Biden also said he would “make no apology” for rolling back Trump’s policies which he claimed “were not helping at all.”
“Rolling back the policies of ‘Remain in Mexico,’ sitting on the edge of the Rio Grande in a muddy circumstance with not enough to eat? I make no apologies for that,” Biden said.
He continued, “I make no apologies for ending programs that did not exist before Trump became president that have an incredibly negative impact on the law — international law — as well as on human dignity. And so I make no apologies for that.”
