South Carolina US Senator Lindsey Graham boldly declared on Fox News that he will not support any aid for Israel until America’s wide open southern border is secure, in what for many is a welcome deviation from the norm from a Republican who’s long been known for supporting a wide variety of foreign wars.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) blasted the Biden-Harris Administration for allowing millions of illegal aliens from all over the world, including radical Islamists from the Middle East, to stream into the United States with no resistance and much accommodation, during a Fox News appearance on the Hannity program. With America under a complete and total assault at home, Graham vowed that he “will not vote for one dime” of foreign aid “for any country, including Israel” until America’s own border is first secured.
“This is the same administration that is having more illegal immigrants cros order border illegally than all presidents combined,” Graham said. “They don’t know what they’re doing on the border, they don’t know what they’re doing when it comes to bad guys.”
“If you had Donald Trump as president we would secure the border tomorrow,” he went on. “People would listen to him in Mexico and other places because they’re afraid of him. If he were President of the United States this stuff with Iran would end. The only thing that works with bad guys is to be strong.”
“Our border is broken,” said Graham. “Our policies don’t work. It’s a matter of time until a bunch of Americans get killed.”
“I will not vote for one dime for any country, including Israel until we first secure our own border!” Graham vowed.

The vow by Senator Graham to cut off foreign aid until the southern border is secured is a major deviation from his longtime war-hawk political stances, which have included a commitment to funding the Ukrainian war cause. Graham has taken several trips to Ukraine and has met with Western-backed President Zelensky and, prior to that, was known for his ardent support of continued US military operations in the Middle East.
