"If a small child was brought to the United States from Central America, we can’t send that child back. You can from Mexico and Canada. You've got to change that law. If you've got a minor child you can only hold them for 20 days. That’s not enough to process the case. So we turn the entire family loose into the country."

Graham highlighted the issue of asylum during an immigration hearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday and said 90 percent of migrants fail to appear for their court cases. He also said his bill will aim to force central Americans to apply for asylum in their own country, before attempting to immigrate to America.

"If you read a card asking for asylum you're entitled to a hearing," Graham told "Fox & Friends." "It takes three years to get a hearing. We don’t hold people three years. We let them loose into the country -- they never show up. I’m going to change the law to say that if you apply for asylum from Central America you have to do it in your own country or Mexico -- not here."

Graham claimed Durbin is open to striking an immigration deal in exchange for increased foreign aid and economic assistance for Central America.

Graham also stated that asylum laws and the Flores decision needs to be changed or they'll keep coming forever.  This is indeed needed in addition to the wall.

We have to stop giving out an invitation to come here!
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

I referyou to conservative icon, Pres. Reagan and his 1986 Amnesty. Bush II and McCain wanted more amnesty in the early 2000s.


Pres. Trump is the first Pres. since Eisenhower to try to combat illegal immigration. Virtually all democrats and around half the GOP oppose him.

@truth_seeker

It was NOT "Reagan's Amnesty". He was pretty much forced to sign what was SUPPOSED to have been a One Time Amnesty deal in order to get the tax cuts he wanted,and the Dims immediately stabbed him in the back once it was a done deal. It's easy for us to snipe at him from this late date,but he was from a generation where even politicians tried to keep their word to one another,and he actually believed them when they told him they agreed it would be a one-time deal,

Probably his biggest mistake,but it WAS a mistake.  It wasn't something he wanted to do.
