Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Wednesday unveiled a bill that would end asylum claims from Central America at the border and return unaccompanied minors to their home countries -- a targeted effort to tackle the escalating migration crisis.
This is a nightmare for smugglers, Graham said. This is a godsend to stop the humanitarian disaster.
Grahams bill is designed specifically to deal with loopholes he says are encouraging migrants from Central America to make the treacherous journey north and bring children with them. He pointed in particular to the 20-day limit for authorities to hold unaccompanied minors and families before having to release them into the U.S. homeland.
The word is out on the street in Central America if you bring a minor child with you, your chance of being deported goes to almost zero, your hearing date is years away and we release you inside the country and that's the goal of coming, he said.
The bill would end asylum claims at the U.S. border for migrants from the Northern Triangle of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. Instead, those applications would be filed at refugee processing centers set up in the Northern Triangle and Mexico. The legislation would also allow unaccompanied minors to be returned to their country of origin, which Graham said would be treating them the same as minors from Canada and Mexico.

Flimsey Grahamnesty has done his own incentivizing for them to come every time he supports an amnesty bill, which he has done every time one comes up in the Senate.
This is needed legislation, but do not trust Flimsey Grahamnesty.
Sounds reasonable. I hope the bill passes.
Set up a 3-mile perimeter alongside the border on Mexico side
And it will never pass the House and probably not the Senate.
Head fake from the guy trying not to loose his Senate seat.
It will never get past the House.
I’m guessing you haven’t been on the Mexican border. There are plenty of places where you’d be annexing huge chunks of Mexican cities.
The last thing we need is 500 more lawyers! Lawyers are mostly democrats. Is this a bone to the democrats? Why does it take a lawyer to make this determination?
Just suspend immigration until we can handle the vast horde of illegals we have! The last thing we need is another battalion of damn democrat lawyers.
If we have to create slots for new lawyers, post them to Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.
Blah, blah, blah
Does Mitch McConnell support this?
I think it does too, and so do I.
Here is an excerpt from William Gheen’s e-mail warning on Senator Graham & hidden amnesty provisions.
Senator Graham is announcing a tough sounding set of immigration law changes, to boost his 2020 campaign, while keeping the door open for immigration matters Democrats want, which translates into Amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
Senator Graham repeatedly states that the number of unaccompanied minor illegal aliens (UACs) are increasing and that the government can’t hold them for more than twenty days, but Graham refuses to admit that—
Graham voted for the secretive budget deal bill ( H.J.Res. 31) that President Trump signed on Feb. 15, 2019, which contains a new Amnesty law provision in section 224(a) which prevents Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from deporting UACs, deporting illegal minor sponsors, illegal minor housemates, and illegal minors’ potential sponsors!
Graham is offering solutions to a border crisis he and President Donald Trump have created by passing a secret Amnesty in the budget deal bill and by Trump breaking at least ten major immigration promises! (View)
“Sen. Lindsey Graham acts like he just discovered the destructive Presidential Catch and Release policies that have been going on since early in the Bush administration around 2002! Graham wants to campaign tough against immigration for his reelection effort in 2020,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “The truth is that today’s onslaught of illegal aliens at our border has been caused by Senator Graham’s support for Comprehensive Immigration Reform and Dream Act Amnesty legislation in 2006, 2007, 2010, and as a Gang of Eight member in 2012. Senator Graham hopes Americans will forget his support for Amnesty as he offers solutions for a problem he played a major role in creating.”
If he does, you're against it, correct?
RE: Graham unveils bill to end asylum claims at US border, return minors to home countries
In a sane country, this should have been done long ago and should not even be a controversial thing even now.
If they have obtained a visa legitimately from abroad, fine. I know half of the illegals in America are from overstays, but halving the problem would be better than what we have now.
He needs to add a section that all money and wire transfers performed by individuals, to all countries are subject to a 50% tax.
That would catch all legal and illegal aliens working in this country sending money back home to their relatives. That might be a big enough deterrent to slow down the importation of the legal immigrants seeking the coveted Hi-tech employment Visas.
Dems will never agree to it because they see these children as future Dem voters, they need to continue the Dem voting block forever
It already exists. Check out Border 21, a part of the UN’s Agenda 21.

He forgets that Nancy is stuck in the Door and can’t get out
