“You got Venezuelans doing the same thing [as Brazilians],” Graham continued. “People … [who are] pretty well off in Venezuela. … I can understand wanting to come to America, but at the end of the day, our Border Patrol agents are being denied the ability to police the border because they’re processing agents.”
