Lindsey Graham is looking for a new best friend now that John McCain is out of the picture. He’s been palling around a little with Democrat nut job Sheldon Whitehouse, who once pressed Loretta Lynch to arrest “climate deniers” in hearings, showing his bi-partisan side. Now he’s renewing his old relationship with Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois.
Both were members of the amnesty promoting Gang of Eight back in 2013 and they’re teaming up again to bring amnesty to illegals by advancing what Durbin first attempting back in 2001. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) was his flower girl back then, but Durbins had many partners over the years as he pursued his open border objectives.
The legislation they’re advancing is the latest incarnation of what is called the DREAM Act, and acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. It should be the DREIAM if anything, because they’re illegal aliens. But the rest of the acronym falls apart as well, as the upper age limit for coverage under the bill is 35, double the standard definition of when one is no longer a minor.
What’s important for these sellout Senators is that it sounds cute and fuzzy. That’s what is important in the catch phrase politics of deception we are burdened with these days.
Graham said in a statement, “These young people have lived in America since they were children and built their lives here. We should not squander these young people’s talents and penalize our own nation. Our legislation would allow these young people – who grew up in the United States – to contribute more fully to the country they love.”
Durbin issued a similar statement, saying, “Hundreds of thousands of talented young people who have grown up in our country are at risk of deportation to countries they barely remember. I’ll do everything in my power as a United States Senator to protect these Dreamers and give them the chance to become American citizens so they can contribute to a brighter future for all Americans.”
Durbin added, “I first introduced the Dream Act 16 years ago and I’ll continue fighting until it becomes the law of the land. I thank Senator Graham for partnering with me in this bipartisan effort.” Fortunately it’s more political theater, as it has no support from the White House, which is concentrating on “enforcement first.”
As is customarily the case, those being considered are rewarded for having successfully evaded capture and detection since they have been here, not that hard to do under the Bush and Obama regimes in which they were not only protected but often given preference over Americans, particularly in decisions not to prosecute offenders.
President Trump is more concerned with securing our borders and that’s not something Durbin or Graham have been in the least bit helpful on, as the pitiful inability to get the border wall construction underway demonstrates. This bill is a declaration by the two Senators that they stand with the invasion of America. Nothing more.
