Amnesty is Treason
White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Monday that the bill that democrats are calling ‘bipartisan’ isn’t bipartisan at all and that Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) “were completely dishonest” in their negotiations on immigration with President Donald Trump.
“Senator Graham and Senator Durbin called the president and told him they had a bipartisan bill,” Gidley said on CNN’s “The Lead With Jake Tapper.” “They’d come together with some meeting of the minds to prepare a piece of legislation that would address everything the president outlined. The president was ecstatic.”
But he added: “Here’s the problem: Senator Graham and Senator Durbin were completely dishonest.”
The bill so called republican Lindsey Graham presented along with Dick Durbin would have underfunded the wall and did almost nothing to address chain migration. It would also give a pathway to permanent citizenship to over 10 million illegal aliens that are here in the US.

Gidley also criticized Graham for painting himself as being in lockstep with the White House on immigration, extending a contentious streak of exchanges between the South Carolina lawmaker and the president.
“To pretend he is anything other than someone who wants open borders and amnesty is just disingenuous,” Gidley said.
