Border Crisis

GRAHAM SLAMS DEMS: 'No Deals on Immigration Until We Secure the Border!'

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) stopped by Jesse Watters Primetime to argue that Senator Chuck Schumer’s push on immigration in the lame-duck session is just a political ploy —Democrats never addressed the issue when they held majorities, Graham argues.

Schumer held a press conference on Wednesday.

“We’re short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own at the same level that it used to,” Schumer said. “The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the DREAMers, and all of them.”

But Graham isn’t buying it.

“Obama had 60 senators in the Senate, had a majority in the House, and never even brought immigration up,” Graham says. “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.”
