    The judge's order in Texas is about procedural issues not Constitutional.

    Lindsey Graham Calls For Republicans To End Immigration Standoff With Obama

    Lindsey Graham Calls For Republicans To End Immigration Standoff With Obama


    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called on Republicans to abandon the congressional standoff with President Barack Obama over immigration policy and funding the Department of Homeland Security.

    DHS funding expires on Feb. 27, and the GOP has resisted calls to fund the agency, citing objections to Obama's recent actions making the deportation of undocumented immigrants less of a priority. While those policies must be carried out through DHS, refusing to fund DHS will not actually stop them from being implemented, as the key programs are financed by fees, rather than congressional appropriations.

    I agree. Seal the border, make E-Verify mandatory and start deporting illegals. Today!

    And that is not what Graham is saying, and we will never do it your way.

    My way would end the standoff.
    And I bet it'd be supported by more than half the American people.
