Graham: Immigration Debate Now an ‘S-Show’ Thanks to Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Tuesday lamented that the immigration debate on Capitol Hill has devolved into an “s-show,” referring to President Donald Trump’s reported comments about “shithole countries.” Graham, speaking at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, suggested that something happened between Tuesday and Thursday of last week that changed Trump’s tune on immigration. “Tuesday, we had a president that I was proud to golf with, call my friend, who understood immigration had to be bipartisan,” Graham said, later adding: “Now, I don’t know where they guy went. I want him back.” He also suggested that the president was not being “well-served” by his staff.
