Lindsey Graham warns Donald Trump not to mess with Obama’s executive order or he’ll stand in the way

Here he goes again!

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a warning to President-elect Donald Trump that he ought to consider the consequences of undoing one of President Obama’s immigration programs, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), frequently called the Dream Act.

“Here is a problem that we have: You’ve got about a million DREAM Act kids who came here as small children, lived here all their lives. Now they have legal status by executive order,” Graham told reporters Tuesday.

The DREAM Act allows people who arrived in America illegally as children work authorization and protection from deportation if they meet the program’s requirements.

Graham, who is frequently panned by more conservative Republicans as a RINO (Republican in Name Only), indicated he would stand in the way of any move by the Trump administration to deport people protected by Obama’s DREAM Act.

“I will not vote for a bill that doesn’t, that quite frankly, treats a grandmother and drug dealer the same,” he said. “I will vote for border security.”

Trump has made it known that his first priority is deporting criminal illegal aliens but he hasn’t taken the idea of deporting more illegals off the table.

“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers,” Trump told CBS. “After the border is secured and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that you’re talking about who are terrific people.”

Lindsey Graham issued a warning to President-elect Donald Trump? Did he recently have a lobotomy?


Too much " Pocket Pool".

Good one.

One has to have a brain before a lobotomy can make any difference.

This is why Graham needs to go..he thinks he has all the power...why didn't he stand in the way of all Obama's Executive Orders? Go Trump

I live in South Carolina & have been seeing a dramatic increase in Illegal Aliens.   

The only reason Lindsey Graham-amnesty got re-elected is because the GOP flooded the ticket with 5 or 6 other candidates in the primary, splitting the vote up in order to get him re-elected.   Most SC voters didn't even know who these candidates were.   We'll make sure they know when he comes up for re-election in 2020.   Mr. Gang of 8 Lindsey Graham-amnesty needs to go!   He is an embarrassment to SC & America, much like Pelosi is to Kalifornia.

Why do politicians think it is a good idea to allow Illegals to stay here?  They broke our laws when they came here.  

Let's send all pro-Amnesty politicians to Mexico with no money, no ID and let them demand Mexican citizenship & welfare.  Let's see how that works out!

OUCH...   Yeah I like that idea...that's exactly where they belong

American 1st,

Sorry that you have to endure the likes of this "worse than rhino." 

I feel your pain. I live in Ohio where our Gov. Kasich wrote in John McPain for president and loves Common Core. Both total failures. 

Graham reminds me of another "lower than swamp weed," John Boehner, who by the way was also my congressman. When he first went to Congress was a good congressman and did a lot for our district, but soon learned of the power, money, sex and corruption and you know the rest of the story. 

Graham falls right into that mold and the people of SC is the only one that can do anything about it. Work on it!! Fight for it and soon it will happen. Once the swamp is drained, you will have to rake the "swamp weeds" out of the bottom. Good luck.

Buses and buses and buses of them.   Set-up Welfare Rolls where you must show a Birth Certificate to get a dime.    No "Freebies", and these parasites will begin to get the idea.

Linda, Why didn't Grahmnesty stand up to Ovomit? Because he WANTED them to be written! Why else would he ALLOW Ovomit to run in the first place without so much as a whimper of protest? Why else would he not even QUESTION any of the 1000+ EO's Ovomit signed? Why else would he not question the TPP or the Iran nuclear deal? Bottom line is Grahmnesty is a traitor who, along with every other rino, gets paid off to vote however their lobbyists tell them to vote. Remember the $6.5 million Boehner tool for his ONE vote in foavor of TPP, and the $3.5MM Paulie girl Ryan took for his one vote?

Follow the money. In politics, it ALWAYS leads to the truth.

Well I believe Lindsey is the first one to go down the drain as we drain the swamp.... And every Republican RINO that shows their face. These people are the problem in Washington not the solution....

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
