Sen. Graham is working with the Democrats on an amnesty deal

Breitbart reports that Senate Democrats are targeting Senate Republicans whom they think they can get to support an amnesty deal. 

The main target here appears to be Sen. Linsey Graham (R-SC). Graham had indicated in November of 2020 that he would be willing to work with the Democrats on a deal to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants currently living in America.

“But you’ll also see me trying to find common ground that would benefit all of us and a good place to start, I think, would be the debt and infrastructure and immigration,” Graham said to the Senate Republican caucus at the time.

Now, it appears that Graham is doing just what he said he would do.

It’s true

The Hill reports that Graham has been working with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) on a piece of legislation that is being called the DREAM Act. This bill is expected to be introduced to the Senate this week.

The specifics of the bill have yet to be released to the public, but it is said that it will resemble a previous Dream Act bill that Graham and Durbin have introduced to Congress in the past.

According to The Hill, the previous version of the bill would have provided “permanent residency, and eventual citizenship, to immigrants brought into the country as children who meet education or work requirements.”

Breitbart, however, also notes that previous efforts from Graham and Durbin included the unpopular Gang of Eight amnesty plan, which likely cost Democrats politically.

Looking ahead

What appears to be clear is that the amnesty bill supported by President Joe Biden is considered by Congress as a nonstarter. Biden’s bill would essentially provide amnesty to all 11 to 22 million illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States.

Both Graham and Durbin have indicated that they see the bill they are about to introduce as a starting point for future congressional negotiations regarding amnesty.

Congress has struggled to get an amnesty deal passed for years nows with the most recent serious attempt coming in 2018. All attempts so far have failed, and there is no indication that this one will be any different.

Even though the Democrats control the presidency, the House, and the Senate, they would still need ten Senate Republicans to overcome the Senate filibuster, and that appears to be too big of an ask. Breitbart reports that other Republican targets, besides Graham, include Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Rick Scott (R-FL). All of them have indicated a willingness to agree to an amnesty deal.

  1. What the heck is going on? Why can’t they leave well enough alone? Maybe they should just change their party. Since that’s the way they’re behaving …. No loyalty with this bunch!

  2. I saw the faces of evil in biden’s cabinet on day one. Say your prayers.. Pray that the anti-Constitution types in Congress and their corrupt heathen censoring buddies in big tech all suffer famine and ruin for the remainder of their days, and they shall forever NEVER dwell in the House of the LORD…

    1. There is only one solution! All of the Democrats in office and the RINOS need to be re-called in its entirety by all of the voters in every state. That also includes the mayors, council members of every city that are Dems, including the Mayors and Governors. Taking this type of action is the only way we can get back our country. All of the Members in ANTIFA and BLM need to face a minimum of 15 year in prison doing hard labor. Any illegal that is issued a green card should be reversed once we can take back our country.

      1. Unfortunately, the Founding Fathers did not put a clause in the Constitution to allow states to RE-CALL elected officials at the federal level. That was one BIG FLAW that they made! If they would have, many would be getting their walking papers! Legislators not following the will of their constituents need to be OUT! Our only option is to primary them and vote them out!

        1. I was hoping that we could do something like that for top 4 dems in office. Darn that the founders didn’t think of it or maybe they did and thought it might be abused. Dems certainly would do that.

      2. I agree with you sir but that would be really hard to do and to organize you would have to work hard on it and have a team of many to even get going to need an army to help you

  4. Graham are you selling us down the road also ? We can not depend on Republicans to have our back. If you go through with your little deal with Durbin then we will turn our backs at election time. Now is the time to fight , you can not let the Democrats just run over you. America is watching and they do not like what Biden and the Democrats are doing. Be careful Graham

  5. Worry about Americans first but it seems as though Graham is turning democrat he worry only about the illegals.Sorry buch of people turn their back on their own country.

  6. Not too surprised at Graham He changes with the weather. I have been told but did not believe he would turn his back on Republicans. Guess I was wrong

  7. As far as I know Trump still runs the GOP.
    Liberals are so disgusting they will trick you into believing Members of that Party (other than RINOs) have turned by way of semantics and dirty deeds.
    Until I hear the whole story from the Right’s mouth, I’ll carry on non believing.
    I’ll expect the same loyalty back.
