    Graham Tries to Reassemble the Old Gang (ALIPAC)

    South Carolina senator, joined by Schumer, makes new push to grant amnesty to 'DREAMers'

    by Brendan Kirby | 19 Jan 2017 at 5:30 AM







    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is trying to reassemble the old gang for another push at grating amnesty to so-called “DREAMers,” illegal immigrants who entered the country illegally as children.
    Graham last week introduced the Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow our Economy [BRIDGE] Act, which would grant legal protections to more than 740,000 illegal immigrants who currently benefit from President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Reps. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) and Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) are sponsoring a companion bill in the House of Representatives.
    “Maybe a few of those guys like Rubio maybe did get the message.”
    In a statement announcing the bill, Graham indicated that DACA is unconstitutional and that President-Elect Donald Trump should revoke it.
    “However, I do not believe we should pull the rug out and push these young men and women — who came out of the shadows and registered with the federal government — back into the darkness,” he stated
    Co-sponsors include Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.). All three, along with Graham, participated in the “Gang of Eight” group that sponsored comprehensive immigration reform that passed the Senate in 2013 but ultimately died in the House. Notably absent from the current bill are original Senate co-sponsors John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

    Representatives from McCain’s office did not immediately return calls from LifeZette. Rubio told Politico in December that he favored allowing DACA to gradually phase out by letting recipients’ two-year permits naturally expire.
    “For people who already have the permits, you wouldn’t take it away from them and they wouldn’t be allowed to renew it, and that gives us time to find a legislative solution,” he said.
    A Rubio spokeswoman told LifeZette that the United States needs to secure the nation’s borders, stop visitors from remaining after their visas expire, modernize the legal immigration system, and enforce current laws and fairly and humanely: “He is hopeful we’ll be able to make real progress on these goals in this new Congress.”
    Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, said Rubio’s decision not to co-sponsor Graham’s bill and his measured comments on the issue since the election could be significant.
    “Maybe a few of those guys like Rubio maybe did get the message,” he said.
    At his final news conference on Wednesday, President Obama said attempts to deport DREAMers — who get their name from the acronym of the never-passed Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act — would be one of the things that would prompt him to speak out after he leaves the White House.
    “The notion that we would just arbitrarily, or because of politics, punish those kids, when they didn’t do anything wrong themselves, I think would be something that would merit me speaking out,” he said.

    Mehlman, whose organization favors lower levels of immigration, said it is doubtful that federal authorities would prioritize the deportation of DREAMers. But he said President-Elect Donald Trump ought to let the program expire. He said the election made clear that Americans want Congress to ensure consistent enforcement of immigration laws before deciding the status of people who already have violated the law.
    “There are still people in Washington who do not quite get that,” he said. Mehlman added that he does not believe Graham’s bill has a good chance to pass.
    Kevin Bishop, a spokesman for Graham, declined to speculate on the bill’s chances. “We’ll see,” he said.


    Immigration hard-liners said, however, that they take nothing for granted. William Gheen, founder of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, said he would try to rally opposition to the legislation.
    “In 2013, they beat our butts in the Senate,” he said.
    Trump Could Pay for Wall by Closing Tax LoopholeExperts float cutting off billions of dollars in tax credits claimed by illegal immigrants But Gheen said proponents are "all underestimating the magnitude of what it going to face them this time," in the Trump era.


    "They are trying to change the conversation away from enforcement to amnesty … The American people were promised enforcement only," he said.
    Gheen said aggressive enforcement would prompt many illegal immigrants to return home voluntarily — but added that any attempts to grant special status to certain groups undermines that.
    "All illegal immigrants should have something to worry about," he said.

    Anyone pushing any type of legal status for illegal aliens is on the take with the drug cartels and their criminal enterprises. There is no other explanation for this inexplicable anti-American, anti-Law behavior.

    Hey Lindsey, when you were a Prosecutor, how many "amnesties" did you hand out? Yeah, that's what I thought. NONE.

    The problem is if we keep the kids we have to keep the parents. If we keep the parents they will say we must keep their siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. If we don't they will whine, protest, riot and march and say we are separating families.

    They separated their own families when they illegally came into our country and so many illegals have left behind children, parents etc. Most come with their hands out and demand, lie, defraud and cheat to get any freebie or benefit we have to offer that was meant for US citizens.

    Exactly, Mayday. They've learned this from the disease of "chain migration" on the legal side of immigration. We have to stop it all, right here, right now.

    Given the enormous corruption in DC, it's quite easy to understand why they don't understand the difference from unwanted "chain migration" on the legal side as bad as that is for our country and using the same bad policy with illegal aliens because these traitors and crooks don't understand the difference between a legal immigrant and an illegal alien to begin with.

    Disgusting.

    The illegal parents are the guardians and custodians of their minor children...not US taxpayers.

    Deport the illegal parents and they take their children with them.

    Any unaccompanied minor's apprehended at the border should be handed over into the care and custody of their Embassy for deportation.

    The ones over 18, it they are citizens they can stay or they can leave too. If they are not citizens they get deported. They did this to themselves.

    Cut off the freebies, the healthcare, the public school, the Driver's Licenses, the jobs, the housing and anchor babies.

    All non-citizens who give birth on US soil should received a "Certificate of Child Born Abroad". No US Birth Certificate, no citizenship, no eligibility for taxpayer benefits.

    Absolutely. There will be no separation. Parents are legal guardians by natural right, children whether they claim to be citizens of the US or not, must all be removed with the parents in their custody and relocated to the country of their parents citizenship.

    Well said, William.

    Excellent post, Mayday. You nailed it with this. Giving the DACA illegals a path to citizenship will open the door to a much bigger wave.
