The White House’s deputy spokesman slammed pro-amnesty GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham after the Senator suggested that President Donald Trump’s immigration priorities are determined by one of his aides.
“As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we’re going nowhere,” Graham complained about Miller, who worked with then-Senator Jeff Sessions to successfully sink Graham’s “Gang of Eight” amnesty in 2013. “He’s been an outlier for years,” Graham complained Sunday while telling the reporters that employers in his state of South Carolina need a steady supply of cheap imported workers.
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley promptly pushed back at Graham, who has worked with Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and other pro-amnesty advocates to undermine the President’s “Buy American, Hire American” policy:
As long as Sen. Graham chooses to support legislation that sides with people in this country illegally and unlawfully instead of our own American citizens, we’re going nowhere. He’s been an outlier for years.
Gidley’s public rebuke may reduce Graham’s media-magnified influence in the immigration debate.
