Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-SC, said Wednesday that Congress should pass a bill to restore the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program as well as new border security measures, an idea he says could garner bipartisan support.
DACA recipients “know no other country, they’re a great value to America, so we’ll pass the Dream act for better border security to make sure we don’t have 11 million more illegal immigrants 20 years from now,” Graham said during an interview with CNN on Wednesday.
the White House’s decision to roll back DACA gives Congress until March of 2018 to pass legislation making the program a law. If Congress does not do anything by then, Trump said he will “revisit the issue.”
“My advice to the president would be you come up with a border security plan that’s reasonable, that will secure our border, then I think I can get Democrats on board for the idea of border security plus the Dream Act. Plus, we actually need to do both,” Graham said.
