Graham: Stephen Miller Kills Any Immigration Deal

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) warned on Sunday that the White House staff is undercutting President Trump and Congress's ability to get a deal on immigration. "Every time we have a proposal it is only yanked back by staff members. As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we're going nowhere," Graham told reporters as he headed into a closed-door negotiation with a bipartisan group of senators. ... Graham said on Sunday that Miller has "been an outlier for years" on the issue of immigration.

Theatre of the absurd.

Graham is still butthurt that Miller was the architect of Sessions attack on the Gang of 8 proposal in 2013 but even he has conceded that Miller "has evolved" on the issue of citizenship for Dreamers.

At the end of the day, Miller will whisper to The Donald that whatever bi-partisan deal is reached is as good as it gets and it will get done.

Donald Trump is like a senile Roman emperor being controlled by palace eunuchs.

...Miller "has evolved" on the issue of citizenship for Dreamers.

Much like Chimpanzees evolved to use tools to eat termites.

Nice to see he is evolving but he still has eons to go before he would evolve into a self aware human being with morals and a compassion for his fellow human beings.

Globalist open-borders hack Lindsey doesn't want a deal, he wants surrender.

Anti-globalism is as anti-USA as it gets. Why do you hate my country?

When it comes to kissing Trump's @$$ Stephen Miller trumps even Kellyanne Conway. This is how influence peddling works now in the White House, especially whenever he's the last one to talk to the dotard.

I think Miller kills most living things when he walks into the room. That douche be evil.

Let's get real for a moment. Does anyone actually believe that a Republic President or a Republican Congress is going to approve a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers? Are you kidding me? Talk about pursuing fools gold. Anything the Dreamers receive by way of legal status in this country will be pried from the cold dead fingers of the GOP base.

Keep talking up Miller. Next thing you know, Trump will get insecure and fire him. Could this be the reason that Graham mentioned him by name?

Turns out Graham is the one who is out of step with US Citizens, not Miller.

Could not find the original or a good summary of the recent Harvard-Harris Poll.

But here is some information.

WashingtonTimes

Looks like Trump reflects US Citizens attitudes on immigration.

Washington Times? Get real Sawdust, I wouldn't click on that rag if you paid me.

"Voters overwhelmingly support allowing undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay in the country, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, placing President Donald Trump's decision to wind down the controversial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program at odds with public opinion.

A majority of voters, 58 percent, think these undocumented immigrants, also known as Dreamers, should be allowed to stay and become citizens if they meet certain requirements -- a sentiment that goes well beyond the existing DACA program. Another 18 percent think they should be allowed to stay and become legal residents, but not citizens. Only 15 percent think they should be removed or deported from the country.

Support for allowing these immigrants to remain in the U.S. spans across party lines: 84 percent of Democrats, 74 percent of independents and 69 percent of Republicans think they should stay."

Careful, Danni. You're letting your bias show. Showing disdain for the Washington Examiner,
a right-center source with HIGH incidence of factual reporting, but then following it up with a link to Politico, a left-center source with HIGH incidence of factual reporting, only shows that you don't care about factual reporting, just that the bias agrees with yours.
