Lindsey Graham has had enough of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and their obstructionist ways.
Look, if their opposition to Trump’s border wall to was based on some deeply held belief that would be one thing.
But it is not, they are just playing politics with our national security as Lindsey Graham just proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
Lindsey told Sean Hannity, “The one thing that we have in common, as a member of the Senate, Speaker of the House, Minority Leader of the Senate, and the President of the United States… we have a bunch of people guarding us with guns. It’s pretty hard to get into the Capitol, really hard to get into the White House.”
“All the President is saying is… I’d like to provide more security to the American people. It is a crisis, Sean,” Lindsey added.
“I’ve tried to be reasonable and practical, but when it comes to immigration, I’m flabbergasted to hear from my Democratic colleagues who have voted for billions of dollars in border security money… that this is manufactured.”
“Was it manufactured when Obama wanted the money? No. Why did you give the money to Obama and Bush if it was a manufactured crisis? Graham asked, referring to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
“To my Democratic friends: how many Caravans have to rush the border until you believe we have a problem?” Graham asked before explaining that there are 300,000 people waiting for asylum claims to be adjudicated, while we are spending $750 a day to take care of the 11,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America we are housing.
“Nancy Pelosi says to end the shutdown, Donald Trump says securing the border. How about this: let’s secure the border, then end the shutdown.” Graham suggested.
“There is a deal to be had here, but it’s hard to get a deal when people you’re dealing with calling you racist because you want a border security wall, give you a dollar and say that’s enough, accuse border control agents of gassing children when mobs run toward our border.”
“We’re dealing with pretty radical people here and we’re never going to get a deal until the radicals are set to the side and we get reasonable people to deal with.”
“You know what I think is immoral, trying to accuse people who are trying to defend the nation honestly and working hard and trying to put their lives at risk as being the problem, not the coyote, not the drug dealer, not the terrorist.”
“Democrats want to fight, they’re gonna get one. If they want to solve the problem, we’ll do that too.”
