Lindsey Graham bill to preserve Obama amnesty would create more DREAMers

Border security hawks might be even more animated against South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s attempt to preserve President Barack Obama’s DREAM Act executive order when they discover that it would also extend the program to illegal aliens who haven’t even applied yet.

From the Huffington Post:

The Dream Act would have granted Dreamers a path to legal status, as would the 2013 immigration reform bill that Durbin and Graham helped draft. The new bill would put DACA recipients into a new type of status, “provisional protected presence,” that would last for three years from enactment. It would not be constrained to only those who currently have DACA: eligible individuals who have not yet applied could be granted provisional protected presence as well.

Advocates for illegal alien have been demanding that Obama’s order be preserved despite Trump’s electoral victory and promises to end the program. Some Republicans have shown support for the idea, too. They’re likely motivated to prevent countless headlines decrying Republicans tossing out innocent illegal aliens who were brought into the country as children by their parents.

Trump himself seemed to signal that he would be willing to consider some kind of extension of the “deportation deferral” program for those already protected, but Graham’s bill would mean more illegal aliens would be able to apply for the protections. On the other side, immigration hard-liner Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King says he would oppose any amnesty, as it would just encourage more illegal entries into the United States.

    …Republican? …Sen. Lindsey Graham?

    He is a F%$#kin RINO, a Democrat and traitor.

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    I am somewhat confused.The word illegal used to mean unlawful, but today it has been re-defined as immigrant with no legal standing.When will Washington get back to correctly defining ILLEGAL as unlawful? This is why there is so much alienation between Democrats and Republicans. They DO NOT speak the same language.

    1. John Last says:

      We MUST be p.c. now days.
      The term ( shortened) used to be : W-with O-out P-papers.
      Just ask the Irish & Italians.

      1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

        John – being PC is what has gotten us in the predicament we are in now. What ever happened to being truthful? An illegal immigrant is still an illegal and MUST be deported, otherwise we taxpayers have to support him, pay his medical bills, educate his children, give him a tax-free job. Do you want to pay for all that just to be politicaly correct?

        1. John Last says:

          Uh, that was “sarcasm” to please the p.c. “police”, k ?
          IT WAS A JOKE !

    Graham and “songbird” McCain need to be put out to pasture NOW, and there are many others.

  • pianobill says:

    Graham is an absolute nerd. Hopefully, this is his last term. I live in SC and I’m going to do everything I can to vote him out in 2018, He is a disgrace to the people of SC

  • CCblogging says:

    Lindsey might as well become a Democrat officially. He is already a Democrat unofficially.

  • empty pockets says:

    He didn’t earn the nickname “Lindsay Graham-nesty” for nothing…

  • exar1 says:

    I just read, “Sanctuary City Mayors Must Go To Prison” and an suggestion for the new immigration law; it was concise and to the point on “therepublicstandardnews.com , read it and send in a comment. I thought is was great and would go a long way to, “Make America Great Again.”

    give them amnesty! Then move them All into his house.

  • wellilltellya says:

    I believe the PROPER WORD is INVASION ? the term immigrants were small groups that came her to ASSIMILATE NOT TAKE OVER ? already changing what AMERICANS do to suite their customs ? how in the H699 does that work ? they came HERE we did not go there ? WHY DO THEY EVEN ASSUME AMERICANS will bow to what they want or DO ?and those supporting them GET OUT OF AMERICA ! we the people DO NOT want them OR YOU ! your term in office is UP

  • cae973 says:

    Vote Graham out of office..he does not represent the people of his state, he only cares about big business and illegal aliens. While I have sympathy for those brought here as children..the law is the law and more of them are now flooding our border with their kids. Pass a bill doing away with birthright citizenship, stop all benefits of any kind to non citizens, mandate federal e verify, build the wall and patrol every inch of it, then we look at the kids and they must speak, read and write english, must have graduated high school here and must have entered our school system before the age of 12.

    1. Mary Eleanor Urso says:

      And heavily fine those employing illegal aliens.

      1. Robert says:

        That is the only way to stop this madness. First offence $10,000 Dollar Fine per Illegal Hired. Second Offence $20,000 fine per Illegal plus 5 years in Jail. After that you go right to JAIL for 10 Years. We must keep reminding Donald Trump to keep the Promises he made to us. We must also do every thing we can to help him. All the Socialist-Communists will be up in arms to try and stop him. We can’t allow that to happen.

        1. Mary Eleanor Urso says:

          I’d go even farther than that. I’d make the fine a per day fine and I wouldn’t just stop all benefits. I’d make it illegal, with fine attached, to rent or sell housing to them, to enroll their children in schools, or even to provide medical services to them. Let them self-deport because this country will have absolutely nothing to offer them. We don’t need to be the world’s savior.

      2. John Last says:

        Super idea !
        It won’t fly though.
        The “repugnantcans” and their special interests (puppet masters) LOVE the cheap, scared labor (employees), and the “demonrats” want the illegals votes !
        “DRAIN THE SWAMP” !!!

        1. Mary Eleanor Urso says:

          I know it won’t fly and we are so far beyond “DRAIN THE SWAMP”. We just need to knock it all down and start all over again. That is our only true hope.

          1. John Last says:

            Eh, I don’t know…sounds like Civil War 2.0 !
            With our luck the democrats would loose (AGAIN), but the carpetbaggers (ruling elite) would become stronger.
            THEN, we’d need something like the French Revolution to “bag” the carpetbaggers.
            What to do ?
            Honest, Normal , working class people (& Families) are SO SCREWED!!!

          2. Mary Eleanor Urso says:

            Is this what we call Happy New Year?? Ugh!!!

          3. Mary Eleanor Urso says:

            I do have one question for you. How can Trump ever drain the swamp if the idiots who vote keep re-electing the same swamp monsters to the House and Senate?

          4. John Last says:

            I believe it can be done through a “coalition” of states’ legislatures.
            Term limits can be done at the local/state level, if there are enough honest local polititions and crooked fearful polititions to outnumber the ones “owned” by special interests ( including their own special interests).
            Now, IF (you want discuss the very small word with the MOST variables) the states enact a “term limit” by limiting the times a politition may run, and successfully win/serve inbWashington. It will work.
            I’ve seen , several times – a politition run for one house, be “term limited”, and run for the other.
            Different title, same crappy outcome.
            It will take some doing, especially with powers like Blomberg, Soros, Koch Brothers types.

  • CHRISTOPHER BOWEN says:

    Lindsey Graham is a self infatuated loser. He constantly tries to impose his irrelevant opinions in order to stroke his ego and his delusionary sense of self importance. When will SC lose this guy. Where did they FIND him in the first place.

  • Elizabeth Davis says:

    Lindsey needs to go home and take a look at his roots he has lost all touch with his constituents. His small towns in upper South Carolina lost textile manufacturing in the 80’s and 90’s to Guatemala. I lives there I know. I understand people want a better life but do it the right way They are illegal if we broke the laws we would be put in jail not given a lot of freebies.

  • SickoftheBS says:

    Lindsey Graham is a moronic RINO and I lose more and more respect for the lobtards that keep electing this dufas. Trump won the election by a landslide because we the people had enough of Obama and his policies. It would seem we need to start a recall on Mr. Graham and remove him before he can do real harm to the Great State of South Carolina and the USA as a whole.

    1. Robert says:

      Don’t kid yourself he has already done harm, and filled his pockets with Big Donors money that support the use of cheap Labor while American Citizens can’t find a Decent Job. Wake up Americans before its to late, Let Donald Trump Know that those of us who voted for him expect him to keep the Promises he made to get our support. We want the wall and we want Illegals DEPORTED immediately. People say it is to costly, that’s a LIE it won’t cost any more that it costs us now for all the services they use now that they aren’t entitled to.

  • Tunaby says:

    Lindsey Graham is a disgrace for South Carolina. He was pitiful as a candidate for the Presidential nomination, and is equally pitiful as senator. Thank God, we have Tim Scott as our other Senator. At least, all is not lost due to that.
    I did not live in South Carolina during Graham’s last run for his Senatorial
    office, but I will be here for his next. He will not get my vote. I do intend to to talk to as many as I can to let them know the fallacies and weaknesses of this man. Such an insipid person, ; truly lacking in the necessary qualities for an effective representative of the people of South Carolina.
    Take care and God bless
    Be safe
    Merry blessed Christmas!

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Graham has been one of Obama’s biggest fans and favorite lap dawg, he loves that saddle horn Obama has, and is no more a Rep. than AL-Sharpton is! I still believe his elections are rigged because the people of SC can’t be this stupid, this is one sick puppy, and his bed buddies McCain and McConnell!

  • kbfallon says:

  • Dennis says:

    You live in a dream world Lindsey, and aren’t fit for your job. You are a RINO and always have been. Your voting with the democrats on all subjects would make you more of a democrat than a Republican. Retire and get into a rubber room while you can!

  • Jose says:

    I know I will be called racist for this but allowing the ILLEGAL INVADERS that are here to remain will cause millions more to sudden appear. This is just like if you see a roach and don’t get rid of it, within a few months you will have thousands of roaches.

  • cathylovesyou says:

    Lindsay Graham has become a pain in the Republican party’s butt, so I wish he would but out, and get out of the swamp before it is drained with him in it..

    1. NoCoincidences says:

      He is a large part of the nastiness that lurks below the surface of the swamp-water….

  • bobnstuff says:

    By giving these kids legal status they are no longer illegal immigrants, they are students here on temporary visas just like the ones Trump uses to bring in his works. So in fact Graham is getting rid of illegal immigrants. Compassion is the word. Do you remember Reagan, Compassionate conservatives. Isn’t compassion a Christian belief?

    1. Ali Alexander says:

      How about having “compassion” for AMERICANS? You know–the American kids who already have to compete with illegal aliens for resources in school, for jobs, and for the American taxpayers who pay for it all? It’s also not “compassionate” to string illegal alien children along for 15 years with promises that’ll be alright, that they’ll eventually get amnesty. That just encourages them and their families to hang on here.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        “Whatsoever you do to the least of my people, that you do unto me.”
        (Matthew 25:40)

        1. Robert says:

          More progressive democrat BS crawl back under your rock stupid.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Yes Christ was a progressive but saying his word is BS might be questioned.

        2. John Last says:

          So, since they’re stealing our tax money ( part of lives – labor to PAY taxes) they should be pretty well SCREWED !
          I hope.

    2. Robert says:

      Are you insane? You don’t understand the Billions of Dollars it Costs to pay for all the services they use Illegally.

    3. Robert says:

      Why don’t you start paying for all the services Illegals use that they don’t pay for. You sound like one of those Progressive Democrats that want to spend us into oblivion. They are legally not entitled to anything if they are in this country Illegally, no matter what you or Obama says.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        If you look at what part of the government spending goes to pay for these children it’s peanuts. Welfare as part of the federal budget it’s not very big and only a small part of that money goes to illegals. 80% of the illegal population work and get very little service in return. Most government benefits are unavailable to illegals.

        1. Robert says:

          more lies and BS

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Total public assistance makes up 6% of the budget, there are 109,000,000 people getting a piece of that pie. If every illegal in the country got welfare the would still only make up 1 cent of each tax dollar. However you need a social security care to get most benefits and illegals do have them, if they did they wouldn’t be illegals. Illegals make up about 3% of the work force in our country. Many pay into the system that they can’t get anything out of.

        2. John Last says:

          B. Effing S. !
          Check yourself. Read about school systems struggling to do what is mandated : educate children.
          When the largest identified expenditures are 1) English as a “SECOND” language, and 2) all the bilingual teachers & “socialist workers”.
          It goes well beyond.
          You’re NOT counting what it costs taxpayers in cities & counties.
          I’d guess in your lil socialist mind ALL school money comes from the U.S. Government.
          Listen poodle , the US Government has no money, we the taxpayers do.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            If they have $7.5 million to investigate Clinton then they should have money for education. Maybe they should take the money they give EXXON MOBILE
            and spend it on education. We the taxpayers get to foot the bill for a lot of waste. Here’s one of my family stories. My grandmother taught school a hundred years ago. She had 103 kids in her class and no teachers aids. half spoke no English on the first day of school but everyone did on the last day of school. If there’s a will there’s a way. Most school money comes from local taxes and the federal government pick up a very small part of the bill.

          2. John Last says:

            Better check again, man.
            There are so many strings attached to so many “programs”, I believe you would be surprised.
            Stoies
            Stories 100 years old WAS as it was.
            It’s HISTORY, good or bad, happy or sad. We either learn from it, or be doomed to repeat it, maybe do even worse.
            OK ?

          3. John Last says:

            You might believe that , but the TRUTH is that EVERY Federal program that comes with funding , comes with “strings”. School systems have become very dependent upon these “grants” to States, which then “divy” them up to the local school districts (after the grants have been added into a states budget – making BOTH dependent).
            Ya, right !
            Let’s talk next about “unfunded mandates” sometime.

      Yeah home for Grahmcracker under the rocks with other snakes and slime life.

  • Peter Smith says:

    Graham just doesn’t get it. We want the ILLEGAL ALIENS out of our country, PERIOD. Everyone on this board knows that America is a country made by immigrants, LEGAL immigrants. Send them back south of the border, let them return with LEGAL papers as the Laws already state. Also, a part of LEGAL immigration should be that the immigrant, of whatever age, MUST be able to find work and support themselves. It is not the duty of the US taxpayers to raise these “dreamers”.

    1. kbfallon says:

      The fact that we must provide food-lodging-lawyers-health care-schooling,etc… at great cost for each one of these people makes me sick to think about. We need to send them back including the ones who overstayed their visas. They all knew they were breaking the law, so why feel sorry for them? Charity begins at home.

      1. Peter Smith says:

        You bet, charity does indeed begin at home and starts with family first. The American family FIRST, then, MAYBE we’ll see ……..

      OR “GIVE” them tuition assistance @ the socialist programming institutions , ie “university” !!!
      Parents of Americans, and American kids struggle w/ college debt. Who wants to give these scofflaws precedence over our own?
      The effing socialists populating our “socialist programming institutions”. Most of the folks (illegal immigrants) come from failed socialist countries. THAT treatment is what they expect and NOW they have a “Rich Uncle” – “Uncle Sam”, and expect MORE free cheese, MORE so-called government “care”.
      BMFS !!!

      1. Peter Smith says:

        Hopefully, President-elect Trump will follow through with his campaign rhetoric and enforce our laws and thus render help to these Illegal aliens. Assistance in a relocation effort to more suitable locations. You know, south of our southern border. If Mexico doesn’t like it, and they won’t because they actually do protect their borders and many of these illegals are not Mexican, they can continue the relocation further south.
        When this is done, maybe we can actually address the many issues we have with our country. America First should be the goal of our citizens, our government, and a clear message to future illegals.

          The democrat (demonrats) creed is so similar to another so-called “religion”, it scares me. They LIE to all their sheeple (“constituency”) using Kitty’s, and puppies, and children (they don’t DO baby’s (at least not that way !)
          The biggest thing that scares me : that democrats, progs, whatever chamelion label they decide on from time to time seem to be “emotionally immature”.
