Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday that he expects President Trump to sign legislation granting a pathway to citizenship for almost 11 million illegal immigrants.
Addressing Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday, Graham said his plan is for Congress to address immigration in two legislative packages, the second of which would include a massive amnesty deal.
Phase one would grant a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants brought here as children, who were previously covered under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and would include moderate increases in border security. Phase two of the immigration plan, Graham indicated, would force Trump to sign legislation granting a pathway to full citizenship for almost 11 million more illegal immigrants in exchange for further border security and moving towards a merit-based immigration system.
Graham said Tuesday that he expects Trump to make significant concessions to Democrats in both phase one and phase two of the immigration package.
So heres what I would suggest to you. In phase one, to expect my friends on the other side to go comprehensive for us and DACA for them, its not going to happen. Im telling my friends on the other side, DACA and nothing else is not going to happen. The sweet spot is DACA plus more than the DACA kids and making down payments on border security, moving slowly but surely toward a merit-based immigration system, to be followed by phase two, Graham said.

Linda is so helplessly lost in space...
Linda is raving due to grief over loss of consortium with his boyfriend Juan.
Graham and people in SC may be in on this expanded amnesty.
Seems Linda back doing magic mushrooms.
Light loafers Linda can expect in one hand, crap in the other, and watch which hand fills up faster.
Trump has absolutely no reason to sign such a deal, and numerous reasons not to.
Where is McCain? I thought he was coming back the day after King Day.
As Rush said, Lindsey misread the meeting the other day.
What politicians don’t get is We The People of the United Stats of America doNOT feel that people who have come into our country, against our laws, should EVER bE granted a “pathway to citizenship”....Never!
They can grant them immigrant status, work permits, whatever, but NO Citizenship!
Well see when General Kelly gets to Capital Hill tonight.
Has McJuan shown up in the Senate this CY?
Been there, done that.
Why would Trump sign a bill giving the Dems 11 million more voters?
And, I hope and anticipate that our President will do no such thing.
Stay strong, President Trump! BTW (Build The Wall)
(And, please see my tagline.)
McCain, or his staff, posted a pro-legal immigrant tweet a few days ago. Like many on the left, he’s unable to distinguish between legal and illegal.
`e’s just restin’?
President Graham! That was a fast election - must have been asleep.
Oh well. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
