Graham Supports South Carolina's Decision to Challenge Obama's Immigration Action

"This overreach by President Obama is breathtaking, and every American should be unnerved by the implications of this decision."

12/03/2014 6:16:00 PM

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today issued the following statement in support of South Carolina's decision to sue the Obama Administration over President Obama's executive action on immigration.

"This overreach by President Obama is breathtaking, and every American should be unnerved by the implications of this decision. The executive action is unprecedented and tramples on the concept of constitutional checks and balances.

"I fully support Attorney General Wilson's efforts to challenge President Obama's executive order. The President does have prosecutorial discretion, but he does not have the power to confer legal status by executive fiat. It's one thing to delay or defer prosecutions. It's something else entirely to grant millions of people a legal status without going through Congress.

"Attorney General Wilson is absolutely right to go after this presidential overreach, and I will be supportive in every way possible."

Graham Supports Border Surge

When people in South Carolina say 'Secure the Border' I get it.

06/21/2013 2:09:00 PM

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) yesterday came out in support of the Corker-Hoeven border security amendment to the Senate immigration bill. A vote on the amendment is scheduled for Monday evening.

"When people in South Carolina say ‘Secure the Border,' I get it," said Graham. "The Corker-Hoeven amendment is a border surge and designed to help us regain over sovereignty. It is a robust border security measure which calls for the hiring, training and deployment of an additional 20,000 Border Patrol agents on the southern border."

On Opposition to DREAM Act

by Senator Lindsey Graham

12/09/2010 12:52:00 PM

Illegal immigration is a nightmare for America.  Giving a pathway to citizenship without first securing the border is an inducement to encourage more illegal immigration.  This is nothing more than a political game by the Democrats to try and drive a wedge between the Hispanic community and Republicans. 

Today’s cynical vote on the DREAM Act, along with a series of other votes, convinces me that the Democratic leadership in the Senate does not get the message from the last election. They care more about politics than policy in a variety of areas, including illegal immigration.
