Graham: President Trump's Statement On Pathway To Citizenship For DACA Recipients Is A Major Breakthrough

 WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement after reports that President Trump supports a path to citizenship for DACA recipients in 10-12 years.

“This statement represents presidential leadership on immigration that will allow us to solve a difficult problem.  I truly appreciate President Trump making it clear that he supports a path to citizenship for DACA recipients.  This will greatly help the Senate efforts to craft a proposal which President Trump can sign into law.

“President Trump’s support for a pathway to citizenship will help us get strong border security measures as we work to modernize a broken immigration system.  With this strong statement by President Trump, I have never felt better about our chances of finding a solution on immigration. 

“President Obama tried and couldn’t fix immigration. President Bush tried and couldn’t do it.  I believe President Trump can.  Today’s DACA recipients can be tomorrow’s Trump Dreamers. 

“Finally with this statement we are on track to solving the immigration problem which is the political key to rebuilding our military.”
