Senator Lindsey Graham declares that he does not care if immigrants have to spend even 400 days in detention centers.

Funny, I feel the same way about him.

Courtesy of TPM:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Sunday that he has no problem keeping the migrants in the squalid cells he saw during his detention facility tour in Texas with Vice President Mike Pence.

“What I saw is a bunch of people who have been here before, broke the law before, and we’re not going to let them go,” Graham told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo. “I don’t care if they have to stay in these facilities for 400 days, we’re not going to let those men go that I saw. It would be dangerous.”

Graham, who also serves as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, claimed that “all of [the detained migrants] broke our law.”

“All of them broke our law,” Graham said. “Many of them have done it before. And we’re not going to let them go.”

And despite seeing for himself the unsanitary conditions of the two border facilities he had toured with Pence on Friday, Graham argued that “[t]his is not a concentration camp that I saw.”

It should be noted that seeking asylum in America is NOT against the law.

And also if these individuals have tried entering the country a number of times it probably illustrates how dire their situation is back in their home countries. 

I literally cannot remember back to the time that Lindsey Graham was considered a reasonable member of the Republican party. 

I know it exists, I just can no longer remember it.

    They have a very strong Democratic challenger in SC, bye bye Lindsey.

    It was commented on some cable network that the reason Pence went to the men’s detention is they wanted the optic :see these men are dangerous, they are coming to get you and Lindsey is spreading the LIE.

    If they really didn’t want to use it for political reasons, they would have gone to see the women and children also, but normal Americans would be too disgusted.

    So “they are not going to let them go” what are they planning on doing, keeping them in cages forever?

    Boy, those russians must really have the goods on Miss Lindsey.

      Lindsey Graham Faces Formidable Democratic Challenger in 2020 Senate Race

      outh Carolina Senator and President Donald Trump loyalist Lindsey Graham is up for reelection in 2020 and it appears as though he could have a real fight on his hands.

      Democrat Jaime Harrison has raised a record-breaking $1.3 million over the last three months for his fight against Graham for the Senate seat next year, a large sum of money considering he only announced his intent to run about a month ago. Harrison now has $1.5 million cash on hand, that’s more than any other Democratic candidate running for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina has ever made……

    What a loon
    ====================

    Lindsey Graham backs up Trump after his racist attacks on Dem women: ‘They hate our own country!’

    ,,,,,Graham replied that he wouldn’t have centered his attacks on the lawmakers on their ethnicity — and then proceeded to smear them all as anti-Semites who hate the United States.

    “We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists,” he said. “They hate Israel, they hate our own country, they’re calling the guards along our border concentration camp guards… they’re anti-Semitic, they’re anti-America.”….

      Well if anyone that criticizes the president is a communist, then Graham and trump must be super communists since all the did was attack Obama for 8 years.

      The level of hatred and personal attacks from Miss Lindsey is despicable, he should be censured by the senate but we all know the republicans have no back bone.

    Look at Graham’s face – it now reflects Trump’s hate.

    Whatever “they” have on Graham, it must be scaring him to death. He has turned into a desperately ugly Trump enabler.

    Lindsey Graham Goes Insane For Trump On Fox And Friends

    Not content with defending Trump’s racist tweets, Lindsey Graham has to call AOC and the rest of the squad “communists.” Wait, what?

    Lindsey Graham, a suck-up to the racist President, is a piece of fucking shit, IMHO.
