Statement From U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham On DACA

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) released this statement today on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

“If President Trump chooses to cancel the DACA program and give Congress six months to find a legislative solution, I will be supportive of such a position.

“I have always believed DACA was a presidential overreach.

“However, I equally understand the plight of the Dream Act kids who -- for all practical purposes -- know no country other than America.

“If President Trump makes this decision we will work to find a legislative solution to their dilemma.  

“I have introduced legislation to solve this problem along with Senator Durbin.  I look forward to working with President Trump and my colleagues in Congress to find a fair solution to this difficult problem.”
