    'Shame on us' for not passing immigration reform, Graham says

    By Rebecca Shabad

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said Republicans are partially responsible for not passing comprehensive immigration reform.

    “Shame on us as Republicans for having a body that cannot generate a solution to an issue that’s national security, that’s cultural, that’s economic,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”


    The Senate has passed an immigration bill three times, Graham said, adding that he “loves” his GOP colleagues in the House.


    “I’m close to the people in the House, but I’m disappointed in my party. Are we still the party of 'self-deportation'?” he asked.
    President Obama in a separate interview Sunday blamed Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) for not taking up legislation the Senate passed in 2013 on immigration and urged Congress to pass a bill on the issue.

    “Is it the position of the Republican Party that the 11 million must be driven out? I have never been in that camp as being practical. I am in the camp of securing our borders first, fixing a broken legal immigration, have an E-Verify program so you can't cheat,” Graham added.


    Obama has made a “political decision” to issue his own executive actions on immigration, said Graham, who called the new orders unconstitutional.


    “He made a political decision to try to divide the Republican Party,” he said, “and take the office of the presidency to a level no one else has gone.”

Sure, some idle heads sucking the sponge of illegal immigration and massive excess legal immigration will try their wiles to get it through, but the majority of Republicans will not allow it.
    Yes, there are a handful of Republicans, especially in leadership positions, that will sign on to amnesty. However, it is a well established fact that the majority of them won't. On the other side of the aisle, almost all the Democrats support amnesty for illegals. You're right, Judy, it has been the Republicans that have halted the last couple amnesty bills. If we're loud enough, we can sway enough necessary Republicans support, however, it is next to impossible to convince any Democrats to support our position on the issue.
