The Democrat attempt to add amnesty to the multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure package may be the dumbest idea in the history of the White House and Senate, Sen. Lindsey Graham told Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”
The South Carolina Republican said that President Joe Biden’s desire to put amnesty in the Democrat infrastructure bill “will lead to an invasion of illegal immigration; it will put jet fuel on a system that is already broken. If you give one person legal status there will be a run on our border like you have never seen before … the dumbest idea in the history of the Senate, the history of the White House. It will lead to the breakdown of law and order beyond what you see today.”
Graham also accused Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of attempting to scuttle onging talks over the bipartisan infrastructure bill by scheduling an inital test vote before the legislation has been finalized, saying “we’re not going to proceed to a bill that’s not written, because that makes no sense.”
Schumer on Monday filed cloture on a motion to proceed to debate on the $1.2 trillion package, with one of the lead Republican negotiators, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, slamming Schumer for setting an “arbitrary deadline” of Wednesday to conclude writing the bill, the New York Post reported.
Graham told “The Ingraham Angle” that “Schumer’s trying to blow this effort up. Filing cloture on a bill that doesn’t exist is insane,” adding that Biden should “get on the phone to Schumer and tell him to stand down.”
