Lindsey Graham is a RHINO. Prior to his Republican status, he was a Democrat…Shocker! So this move he is making comes as no surprise. Graham had a failed attempt at the Presidency, and has always disliked Trump. Why you may ask? Because Trump is not the establishment willing to make backroom deals like Graham is. In SC we call him Lindsey “Grahmnesty,” and his latest move against Trump is exactly why he got that name.
From BizPac Review:
South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a warning to President-elect Donald Trump that he ought to consider the consequences of undoing one of President Obama’s immigration programs, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), frequently called the Dream Act.
“Here is a problem that we have: You’ve got about a million DREAM Act kids who came here as small children, lived here all their lives. Now they have legal status by executive order,” Graham told reporters Tuesday.
“I will not vote for a bill that doesn’t, that quite frankly, treats a grandmother and drug dealer the same,” he said. “I will vote for border security.”
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers,” [President-elect Donald] Trump told CBS. “After the border is secured and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that you’re talking about who are terrific people.”
Oh come on now Senator! A grandmother and a drug dealer are not the same.
People are trying so hard to make Trump look like a monster. They will use as many scare tactics as they can. This is why we have such division in this country. I don’t see a massive deportation coming anytime soon. This is just rhetoric, but we will see.
