Senator Lindsey Graham says it is all Stephen Miller’s fault

What’s his fault you ask? Everything to do with immigration and why Graham/Schumer can’t get a deal!

“As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating on immigration, we are going nowhere.”

(South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham)

Senator Graham of course is an advocate for amnesty and was one of the Gang of Eight in 2013 that managed to get their huge amnesty through the Senate that ultimately died when it went no where in the House.

Trump adviser Stephen Miller was then Senator Jeff Sessions’ chief staff person on the issue and as such was Graham’s nemesis.

Hey, Mr. President! A new nickname for you—Grumpy Graham! Photo from Politico which was also overjoyed to report Graham’s comments about Miller.


Graham, who was an outspoken advocate for Syrian refugees here in 2015, blasted Miller over the weekend and of course the Leftwing media (like Newsweek, here) was delighted to report:

During the second day of the United States federal government shutdown, a GOP senator said that President Donald Trump’s Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller was holding back Republicans and Democrats from striking a deal on immigration.

“Every time we have a proposal, it is only yanked back by staff members,” Senator Lindsey Graham (SC-R) told reporters on Capitol Hill Sunday.

“As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating on immigration, we are going nowhere.”

The senator blamed Miller and the White House staff for continued disagreement over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and immigration issues that were at the heart of the spending bill’s failure to pass in the Senate on Friday. “The Stephen Miller approach to immigration has no viability,” Graham told MSNBC on Friday.


Miller was a staffer for then-Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions in 2013 when Sessions voted down a bipartisan bill for immigration reform that would have helped 11 million undocumented American immigrants get citizenship. “It’s no secret that he’s an obstacle to getting anything done on immigration,” an unnamed House Republican told McClatchy earlier this month.

Here is my bellwether on how the President is doing on immigration issues, including the refugee issue. If Senator Graham is happy with the White House then that is bad news for us.

And, if for some reason, Miller leaves the Administration, it will be a sign that we are done!

As long time readers know, immigration/demographic change is, in my view, the only issue that matters for the future of our great country!
