Sen. Graham Promises No Immigration Deal Until Border is Secured

author Published by Chris Pierce

On Wednesday’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” show, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) stated that the recent push by Democrats to pass a massive amnesty in the lame-duck congressional session is nothing more than a political ploy. The Senator argued that Democrats repeatedly failed to pass their promised amnesties when they held majorities in both chambers and urged House Republicans to send a border security bill to the Senate, promising, “There will be no deals on immigration until we secure the border.”

Senator Graham stated:

Obama had 60 senators in the Senate, had a majority in the House, and never even brought immigration up. This is an effort by Democrats to try to label us as anti-Hispanic, it ain’t going to work. Here’s what should happen: I hope Kevin McCarthy’s the Speaker sooner rather than later. If the House doesn’t send the Senate a border security bill from hell, we’ve made a mistake. There’s not going to be any deal on immigration until we secure the border. It’s just a matter of time until a bunch of us get killed because the border’s broken and terrorism’s on the rise. So, here’s my message to my Democratic colleagues: There will be no deals on immigration until we secure the border. To my Republican colleagues in the House, send us a border security bill strong as hell and we’ll make the Democrats vote on it in the Senate.
