    Senator Graham relived the moment he took the amnesty battle on to join forces with his friend, Senator John McCain. They are "good kids", Senator Graham says. He and others ignore the American people and continue to fight for foreign citizens here illegally. They have worked to enable those who have broken the law and who have violated millions of Americans in one way or another, individually and/or collectively.


    Millions of Americans did not decide to join up with John McCain and Lindsey Graham for amnesty. We would want our communities untouched by illegal immigration. The fact that this legislation expands the numbers and allows for citizenship means that the family members could and would be sponsored for legalization and citizenship. This has the potential for amnesty for tens of millions.

    Democrats see their permanent voting block through the lives of the dreamers. Illegal aliens have used their children for benefits and sympathy and lawbreaking. Politicians are using the children (some in their 30s), too, for sympathy and the big amnesty.

    Dreamer group responds:

    Durbin And Graham Propose DREAM Act In Senate

    By Kerry Picket

    WASHINGTON — South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin announced Thursday they will proposebipartisan legislation to give legal status to individuals illegally brought to the U.S. as children — who are usually known as “DREAMers.”

    The legislation, previously championed by the Obama administration, is no longer a priority for the current White House, but that has not stopped some members from pushing the immigration bill.
    “These young people have lived in America since they were children and built their lives here,” Graham said in a statement. “We should not squander these young people’s talents and penalize our own nation. Our legislation would allow these young people – who grew up in the United States – to contribute more fully to the country they love.”

    Durbin joined him in that sentiment saying, “Hundreds of thousands of talented young people who have grown up in our country are at risk of deportation to countries they barely remember. I’ll do everything in my power as a United States Senator to protect these Dreamers and give them the chance to become American citizens so they can contribute to a brighter future for all Americans.”

    He added, “I first introduced the Dream Act 16 years ago and I’ll continue fighting until it becomes the law of the land. I thank Senator Graham for partnering with me in this bipartisan effort.”
    However, the White House already stated earlier Thursday it would not support the legislation, telling McClatchy the administration wants to focus on “enforcement first.” (RELATED: White House Unlikely To Support Senate Bill For ‘Dreamers’)

    The bill would grant lawful permanent resident status to these DREAMers if they have lived in the U.S. for a long period of time since they were children; graduated from college; pursued higher education; worked lawfully for at least 3 years or served in the military; pass security background checks; understand the English language and history of the U.S.; have not committed a felony or other serious crime.

    Graham tells Republicans "moment of reckoning" is coming on Dream Act


    July 20, 2017


    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, had a blistering message for members of his own party in a Capitol Hill press conference Thursday as he and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, pushed their bill Thursday to grant legal status and a path to citizenship for some immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

    Graham and Durbin are reviving a new version of the bill, which has been introduced in previous years in the Senate, as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program faces legal challenges in court. Graham said he appreciates the Trump administration's stated priority to prioritize deporting "bad hombres" who are in the country illegally and have committed crimes, but urged the president and fellow Republicans to treat law-abiding immigrants whose parents brought them as children "fairly."

    "The question for the Republican Party is, what do we tell these people? How do we treat them? Here's my answer. We treat them fairly. We do not pull the rug out from under them," Graham said, adding those immigrants, "are no more connected with a foreign country than I am."

    "So to President Trump, you're going to have to make a decision," Graham said. "The campaign is over. To the Republican Party, who are we? What do we believe? The moment of reckoning is coming. When they write the history of these times, I'm going to be with these kids."

    DHS Secretary Kelly says you should "probably" take Trump "at his word" on Dreamers


    The DACA program, implemented under President Obama in 2012, protects immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. On the campaign trail, Mr. Trump said he would "immediately" end that protection, but reversed course on that hard-line stance after taking office. The Department of Homeland Security last month said DACA recipients "will continue to be eligible" for renewed status, and the president has called DACA a tough issue to decide.


    Durbin said more than 780,000 people have signed up for DACA since 2012, and one million might qualify. The program has attracted the most applicants from Mexico, followed by El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, according to federal records.


    The legislation Graham and Durbin are introducing requires applicants to be in the country for four years or longer, have been 17 years or younger when they arrived in the U.S., graduate from high school or obtain a GED, be employed for three years, and pass a criminal background check and English proficiency test.


    Graham joked those last two requirements would eliminate many of his own relatives.


    "What I've described would knock half of my family out," Graham said.

    Graham said the Senate has an obligation to these minors, who "took President Trump up on the offer" to stay in the country.

    "These DACA kids have come out of the shadows at the invitation of their government," Graham said.

    Graham said he wouldn't be supporting the legislation if he didn't have confidence that the federal government will be tightening its borders to restrict illegal border crossings in the future. Mr. Trump still says he plans to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, although progress on that wall is moving more slowly than initially planned.

    Durbin said he's "hopeful" that even in today's "anti-immigrant climate," the Senate would be able to work together on this issue.

    "I think this is the one area of immigration where we can find common ground," Durbin said.
