Lindsey Graham border security-only amendment did pass

Sen. Lindsey Graham's border security-only amendment did eventually pass:
The contentious debate last month on a failed immigration overhaul plan was key to the Senate's approval of $3 billion that will tighten security along the nation's borders, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said Monday.

The money will be used to hire border patrol agents, build fences in urban areas and erect observation towers, Graham said.

"I think we're going to find more success that could not have been achieved without the prior debate," Graham said. "I took some political heat for being involved in that process, but here's where the political payoff is."

...Graham will continue to push for votes on other pieces of the overhaul including:

- A tougher visa law that cracks down on people who stay in the U.S. illegally.

- A system keeping illegal immigrants from getting jobs and allowing more legal immigration for highly skilled and unskilled labor.

- Some means of addressing the estimated 12 million people now in the nation illegally...


Linseed Graham is making his move to undo the damage he did when he joined the back stabbers in pushing the immigration bill. He is trying to be all things to all people and the average voter being the spineless wimp they are he will probably succeed. The old argument it is better to have someone with whom you agree 80% of the time than some one with whom you disagree with 80% of the time is so much BS. The point being you never know when these rats will disagree with you and it may be something you really care about.
