South Caroline Republican senator Lindsey Graham blasted Democrats’ attempt to add amnesty to the multi-trillion-dollar “infrastructure package” as the dumbest idea in the history of the White House and Senate.
“If you give one person legal status there will be a run on our border like you have never seen before… the dumbest idea in the history of the Senate, the history of the White House. It will lead to the breakdown of law and order beyond what you see today,” Graham told Fox News’s host Laura Ingraham on Monday.
“It’s a power grab,” Graham said. He said the package doesn’t have a “damn thing to do with infrastructure.” (Story continues below.)
Other Republicans sounded the alarm on Democrat’s attempt to push amnesty for illegal immigrants through infrastructure package.

They hope you won’t notice.
