ㅤô¿ô …No way. The Trump admin is right about Graham. He may have experience with Clinton’s impeachment. But he is out-of-touch with current doubt about Mueller’s objectivity. The GOP has justifiable reason to vote against impeachment if it is based solely on the special counsel investigation.
ㅤ”A GOP aide told the Examiner that allowing Graham to take part in immigration discussions could ruin the chances of any deal being reached on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
ㅤ’Anything that Graham is a leader on is, honestly, dead on arrival in terms of the White House and also in the House,’ the aide told the publication. ‘The problem right now, even more than policies, is the personalities, the people who want to spearhead their sides of the aisle. I don’t think Graham carries weight in the GOP conference.’
ㅤStaffers within the White House also said Durbin would be difficult to work with on the issue.
ㅤ’I respect Durbin and the rest of them, but their version of solving this problem is not the President’s version of solving this problem,’ a senior White House aide said. ‘What Sen. Graham, Sen. Durbin, Sen. Flake, those kinds of people are doing relative to a DACA bill is just not where [Trump] is, and not where the Senate and the House is.'”
ㅤô¿ô …I say it’s about time.

ㅤ”Chain migration is responsible for roughly half of all new immigration into the United States, because it allows new citizens to import an unlimited number of relatives, regardless of their skills, education, ideology, health or age. For example, the 1.2 million people who have arrived since 1994 via the ‘visa lottery’ program have also brought in roughly 3.8 million relatives, as of 2017. Ending chain migration would drop annual immigration by roughly 45 percent, and would likely reduce the wealth gap by pressuring up Americans’ wages.”

ㅤ”The moral of the story is, don’t nominate somebody like Roy Moore who could actually lose a seat that any other Republican could win. From a party perspective, we’ve got to go long term, not short term. What I would tell President Trump, if you think winning with Roy Moore is going to be easy for the republican party, you’re mistaken.” — Lindsey Graham
