Lindsey Graham Challenges Democrats' Support for "Asylum Seekers."
It still feels weird writing positive stories about Senator Lindsey Graham. Let alone one about immigration. But with 1001 different hot takes about the migrant caravan (see Migrant Caravan Members Caught Throwing Rocks at Border Patrol Agents and Alexandria Cortez Compares Honduran Asylum Seekers to Jews in the Holocaust), we return to Golden Graham. Who's probably rolling his eyes at the new young Democrat upstart, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Known round these parts as "Nina Pinta Santa Maria Cortez." Not a sexist thing. A long name thing.
Here's Graham with the points:

The current chaos at our southern border must be dealt with properly or we will never find a solution to our broken immigration system. #3— Lindsey Graham (@Lindsey Graham)1543257096.0

It remains the pathway forward and Americans are watching how we handle this current test. #10— Lindsey Graham (@Lindsey Graham)1543257629.0
Yes, we are watching. We're not surprised by what we see: Democrats muddying the waters with slavish adherence to a narrative, which will not-so-secretly allow them future Democrat voters and a media willing to go along with them.
Americans are tired of immigration being used as a political football. Fix it. Now.
