Graham: Without Immigration, GOP To Fail In 2016

Lindsey Graham SC Graham: Without immigration, GOP to fail in 2016

WASHINGTON — Republicans are “in a demographic death spiral” and will fail in their effort to win the presidency if the party blocks an immigration overhaul, a leading GOP senator said Sunday.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who helped write a bipartisan immigration bill under debate in the Senate, said conservatives who are trying to block the measure will doom the party and all but guarantee a Democrat will remain in the White House after 2016′s election.

A Democrat also involved in developing the proposal, Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, went a step further and predicted “there’ll never be a road to the White House for the Republican Party” if immigration overhaul fails to pass.

Meanwhile, one the proposal’s authors who is considering such a White House campaign refused again to pledge support for the measure without changes conservatives have demanded.

“The vast majority of Americans, the vast majority of conservative Republicans are prepared to support immigration reform, but only if we can ensure that we’re not going to have another wave of illegal immigration in the future,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

    The vast majority of Republicans only want a secure border! End the programs these law breakers come here for and they will migrate back home the way they came! They are law breakers and deserve no pandering to! To all you sell out politicians you're time will be up on the next vote. You'll lose more conservative voters by allowing BS amnesty bills, then you will gain in hispanic votes. Who do you owe loyalty to? Illegal invaders, or the citizens of this country?

  2. Jeffery Lanham says:

    we cannot pass this Bill with all is hiding stuff he has in it And this will not hurt the Republicans

  3. Graham, Get your head on straight. Immigration will hurt the whites and the blacks. How many immigrants are you planning to legalize to cover all those lost votes.

  4. It's beyond me why anyone listens to Graham or McCain, but these guys are the only ones the media talks to.

  5. P Hanes says:

    If the Republican Party would just simply get back to the fundamentals that this country was founded on and that the majority of Americans are really for they would win hands down! Speak the truth and follow through! Say what you mean and mean what you say! Fiscal Responsibility, Smaller Government, No More Freebies, Limited Spending, Lower Taxes (you don't need as much tax income if you stop the Freebies!) Stand on Principles and Don't Back Down!! The Republican that runs on this platform would go all the way!

  6. P. Hanes says:

    We don't need illegal aliens to fact if Lindsey Graham thinks this he is a fool! The majority of Americans don't want any kind of 'amnesty' that's just another freebie from the government. Everyone knows that the Democrats will twist everything and say just enough of the truth to make their lies seem plausible and get them to vote that way. Again if the GOP would stop playing into their games and just speak the truth and listen to true Americans….fiscally responsible, lower taxes for all, reduced spending etc…they would win in 2014 and the Presidential election.

    Republicans want a win in 2016? SECURE the border and I'll bet you who ever does will win. Period.

    • RacerJim says:

      NOMINATE a true conservative who has already proven themselves unafraid to "take it to" liberals and mainstream-media and I'll bet anyone whoever that nominee is will win. PERIOD.

      • Seeks_the_truth says:

        Like Marco Rubio? He claims to be 'a true conservative' unafraid of the LSM or taking it to the liberals. Could that be because he wants to give them amnesty?
        I'm tired of all the talk. I prefer action.

  8. You illegal immigrants need to get the hell out of our country! You ruined your country so then you come here to ruin ours! Now your not going to need to show identification to vote?! I tell you what get the hell out before shots starts firing in the second american revolution you are invaders and are hear illegally and you will be removed by force you dont voluntarily leave the american people have had enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I'm with you jason these people got to go back and make their countries better and they can take Chunky Shumer,Grahamnesty ,McCain, Turban Durban and Pervert Menendez with them

  9. Edwardkoziol says:
