    South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a statement Thursday calling for President Donald Trump to invoke national emergency powers to fund his border wall. "Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi's refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier -- even if the government were to be reopened -- virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier," Graham said in a statement. "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier."

    I’ve been blogging since the Bush presidency, through the war on terror, the rise of Obama, and the rise of Trump. I thought I’d seen it all.I never imagined an Ann Coulter/Lindsey Graham convergence on immigration.Is the man known to righties as “Grahamnesty” turning over a new leaf or is he working an angle here? The question answers itself. “He’s not going to sign a bill that doesn’t have money for the wall. I can tell you exactly how this is going to end. The president is going to challenge Democrats to compromise and if they continue to say...
  • Graham: When Obama Used Tear Gas at Border, They Said 'He Was Protecting the Country'

    Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the media and Trump critics for their attacks on the administration's use of tear gas on groups of migrants trying to cross the southern border. Graham (R-S.C.) said that their "narrative that Trump is a cruel, heartless bastard only works if he uses tear gas on kids." He referenced the Obama administration's repeated use of tear gas at the border, including in late November 2013. "When he uses tear gas, he's protecting the country," Graham said of the left's coverage of Obama's actions.

    The Hill ^ | 12/21/18 | Tal Axelrod
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of President Trump’s most vocal allies on Capitol Hill, endorsed the White House demand for $5 billion in border wall funding in order to avert a partial government shutdown on Friday at midnight. “It’s right to fight for wall funding. The House-passed bill is reasonable. Let’s Dig in!” Graham tweeted, referring to the House measure that includes $5.7 billion in wall funding. That legislation is unlikely to pass the Senate. The South Carolina Republican was echoing remarks he made earlier this month. “He needs to dig in and get the very Democrats who voted for...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned Sunday that a legislative fix to the partial government shutdown won't be passed by the Senate without border security funding. "At the end of the day, there's a deal to be had," Graham said during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union." "But everybody is changing their position here and most Americans are pretty tired of it. So to my Democratic friends, there will never be a deal without wall funding and many Republicans are going to offer something as an incentive to vote for wall funding that you have supported in the past."...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that President Trump is "open-minded" but non-committal about a potential deal that would include border security funding and offer protections for young immigrants that he has floated to resolve the ongoing government shutdown. Graham said Trump remained adamant that any agreement must include money for the president's desired wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Graham told reporters outside the White House that he spoke with Trump about a possible arrangement that would include $5 billion for border security, renewable work permits for beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and visas for...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Sunday said a deal that combines $5 billion for President Trump’s border wall with an extension of legal status for “Dreamers” and people fleeing conflict or natural disasters back home could “save the day in the Senate” and reopen the government. “We need to start talking again,” the Republican told CNN’s State of the Union. “To my Democratic friends: There will never be a deal without wall funding.” He said in return, immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children should be eligible for legal status and authorization to work for three years...

    Fourteen of the 23 GOP members who signed the cheap-labor Discharge Petition amnesty in June will be gone from Congress in January. The group’s wipeout came after they worked with House Speaker Paul Ryan to block the pro-American, compromise immigration reform bill prepared by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the chairman of the House judiciary committee.

    Romaine lettuce is unsafe to eat in any form, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday in a broad alert in response to a new outbreak of illnesses caused by a particularly dangerous type of E. coli contamination. The CDC told consumers to throw away any romaine lettuce they may already have purchased. Restaurants should not serve it, stores should not sell it, and people should not buy it, no matter where or when the lettuce was grown. It doesn’t matter if it is chopped, whole head or part of a mix. All romaine should be avoided.

It is hard to understand what could have possibly motivated this action on Snipes’s part, given her stellar reputation and the fact that she had performed so well in her job for so many years. Hah, hahahahahaha!!! Ok, I’m kidding. Seriously, is there anyone in America who needed firing...

    During a town hall event on Wednesday night, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) — running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Senate seat — told a black American who questioned his support of illegal immigration that illegal aliens from Central America and Mexico are today’s cotton pickers. O’Rourke’s remarks were made after a black American asked the congressman if he supported illegal aliens being given U.S. citizenship despite breaking the country’s immigration laws. O’Rourke responded by saying that it is illegal aliens who are working at cotton gins today.

    Crocodile tears are flowing from Democrats and their allies in the Democrat Media Industrial Complex (DMIC) over the Trump administration’s enforcement of immigration laws signed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1997, followed by then-President Barack Obama’s decisions and policies. Immigration laws are a function of every country on the planet. Otherwise, why have borders? Which is something Democrats would apparently prefer not to have — or enforce. Because they want a recurring wave of new underclass voters, dependent upon the state for all their needs. Illegal aliens fit that description perfectly. The latest salvo in the immigration imbroglio stems from...

Send Obama's illegal aliens back! Obama's DACA is unconstitutional. Hold their feet to the fire (again)! No amnesty!! Not under Bush. Not under Obama. And certainly not under Trump! Build the wall, enforce the law, deport them all!! End sanctuary cities, end anchor babies, end chain migration, end DACA!! And don't break up families. Deport them all!!

    I have previously written that no one knows how long legal immigrant workers will have to wait for permanent residency (i.e. green cards) in the United States, particularly from India where the wait times are the longest. But now U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has released the number of applicants for each category, so we can compute rough estimates of the number of years it will take people applying today to receive their green cards. Table 1 provides the data. As of April 20, 2018, there were 632,219 Indian immigrants and their spouses and minor children waiting for green...

    Most Pacific Northwesterners spend long, rainy months pining for summer. But Microsoft President Brad Smith is having a hard time celebrating because he sees three clouds on the political horizon. During an appearance at the Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., on Tuesday, Smith told Recode’s Kara Swisher that he has three immigration-related concerns that could make this “a tough summer.” If President Donald Trump takes any of the actions Smith warned about, Microsoft employees would be directly impacted. Smith told Swisher he is worried that Republicans and Democrats will fail to reach a compromise on DACA, a program...

    Americans should have the courage to ignore their written laws, to amnesty DACA illegals and accept an open-borders world, says an op-ed by two wealthy CEOs who stand to gain more wealth in a labor market flooded by low-wage migrants. The op-ed by Tim Cook (CEO of Apple, wealth $800 million and growing) and Charles Koch (Koch Industries, $49 billion and growing) was posted in the Washington Post newspaper owned by Jeff Bezos (owner of Amazon, $98 billion and growing). Under the headline “Congress must act on the ‘dreamers,’” it declared: We must do better. The United States is at...

Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina to reject President Donald J. Trump’s nominee to run the U.S. Export-Import Bank. The National Association of Manufacturers said on Aug. 22 that it had launched radio and online ads in South Carolina calling on the senators to oppose the White House pick, former New Jersey Rep. Scott Garrett. A radio script released by NAM says...
