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.
