What a refreshing truth! Explaining the difficulty of getting an immigration bill passed, Lindsey Graham (R) finally admits:
I like this new honesty!Part of it, I think and I hate to say this, because these are my people but I hate to say it, but its racial, said the lawmaker, who remained anonymous. If you go to town halls people say things like, These people have different cultural customs than we do. And thats code for race.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) noted that race and demagoguery has always been a factor when its come to U.S. immigration policy, and it certainly is one now. Theres nothing new going on today thats gone on before, Graham said. This isnt the first time that theres been some ugliness around the issue of immigration.
