Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is now being heavily criticized for comments he made about White House aide Stephen Miller. Graham called Miller “an outlier” on immigration, which has GOP members fighting mad. Graham told reporters:

‘Every time we have a proposal it is only yanked back by staff members. As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we’re going nowhere.’

According to The Chicago Tribune, Senators Graham and Durbin thought they had struck a bipartisan deal, and were set to meet Mr. Trump on Thursday who they expected to be on board, but then things went sour. Graham blames it on the ultra conservatives on Trump’s staff. He said:

‘We cannot do this with people in charge at the White House who have an irrational view of how to fix immigration.’

Trump even tweeted his own intentions that a bipartisan deal would be worked out, which makes it even more perplexing:

Now, The White House has responded back to Graham’s comments about Miller using the words of Graham himself. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley made a statement on Sunday night on Twitter, saying:

‘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.’

The Chicago Tribune also reported:

‘During the Judiciary Committee hearing, Durbin and Nielsen also revealed that Trump had pressed lawmakers in the Thursday meeting to provide $20 billion this year so that a new wall along the U.S.-Mexico border could be constructed in the coming year. That’s more than the $18 billion the Trump administration told Congress earlier this month it wants to build out physical barriers over the next decade.’

According to the McClatchy DC Bureau, these are some of Miller’s far-right views on immigration:

‘In the fall, Miller helped draft a wish list of immigration policies that the administration had to have in exchange for Dreamer protections, including eliminating protections for unaccompanied children who are in the country illegally; restricting eligibility for asylum, humanitarian parole and abused or abandoned foreign children and hiring thousands more immigration officers, prosecutors and judges. Miller had a hand in writing the list but the Department of Homeland Security actually derived the list of priorities based on their needs, according to the White House.’

Mr. Trump wants to build a wall and has no desire to strike a deal with anyone. He and those he appoints are responsible for the toxic policy decisions being handed down. Graham is right about Miller and at least he had the courage to speak out about his own party and dish out criticism where due. The “Shutdown” president has to have his way and it doesn’t matter who suffers in the process.

This is what Twitter had to say:

Shame on Trump and the Republicans for allowing the shutdown to happen. They control the presidency and both sides of Congress so there is no one to blame but them. What it boils down is their defunct ability to make decisions not influenced by absurd racist views.
