  1. I am so sick of this I really am what has happen to this country. We used to be able find common ground but now…..

    I am tired of radicals in both sides. I am tired of the hate, name calling ,grand standing .

    I am tired of it all.

  2. If you would not give them any benefits they would not come here. That is our money. You only want them for their illegal votes. You are breaking the law.

  3. Immigration reform can happen but i think both sides are listening to too much far right and far left groups. We need to have a balance which is stay in the middle always at all times. So lets make this thing happen.

  4. DEMOCRATS PRESENT THE FACT REPUBLICANS ARE THROWING AWAY THE FOUNDATION OF A SOCIETY OF LAW & ORDER.

  5. Something has to be done! Lives are being lost by illeagel aliens,Thank you Senator Graham for trying,but they will never help with this crisis,unless it is a bill they come up with,they don't want any wins for the Republican Party,they are just the party of resist,block, ignore and lie, Trump Trump 2020

  6. How many people have been deported under Obama?

    President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the "Deporter in Chief."

    Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who "self-deported" or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

    How does he compare to other presidents?

    According to governmental data, the Obama administration has deported more people than any other president's administration in history.

    In fact, they have deported more than the sum of all the presidents of the 20th century.

    President George W. Bush's administration deported just over two million during his time in office; and Obama’s numbers don’t reflect his last year in office, for which data is not yet available.

    YO QUISIERA SABER POR QUE NADIE LLAMA OBAMA RACISTA >> I just like to know why no one call Obama racis ? And I know the answer > you are too afraid to call a black man for what he is.

  7. Democrats through out the rules decades ago by allowing and continuing to allow illegals to overrun this country in its attempt to overthrow our Democracy in exchange for socialism.

  8. It's sad that we have 3.2 million poor Afro-American Homeless, but Politicians preferred to give yearly $132 billion for none-citizens it almost they want Black American been replace by Central America. #BLM ? 🤔

  9. This is pathetic when they are using American lives in jeopardy. We don't want murderers, rapists, gangs, drugs, and contagious diseases in our country! What a disgrace in our country!

  10. Fox News: Graham defended the move, stating the bill had been ready to move forward for seven weeks and Democrats intentionally did not show up last week in an effort to stymie the legislation.

    My comments:

    This just shows how our government is too dysfunctional and not working towards solutions for the American people they serve. If none of the Democrats were going to show up, then that party should have rescheduled. Complaining later that they did not have a voice/vote is ridiculous and not professional.

    I say this as a person who is not a Republican nor Democrat at this time. My vote in 2020 will go to the party that makes changes that I believe need to be done. I hope at least one party can find a way to get things done. Our government is too dysfunctional and not united between parties.

     I personally find the Democratic party more confusing in their "message." I am not sure they have a "message" that sticks out or even makes sense. They seem to have the most "infighting." Even if they do not get along and do not agree on their party agendas, it seems like they could find some resemblance of unity for the sake of their own party. This speaks volumes to me as a voter. I long for more clarity before the next election.

    Another note: I noticed that during the Democratic debate that the candidates were referring to the border as a "crisis." When did they change their opinion of the situation??? I thought they all claimed that it was a made up/manufactured crisis. Again, I am not Republican nor Democrat.

  12. Democrats are a threat to our democracy this is preposterous

  13. Democratics are such babies when they don't get their way!

  14. Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. Dems have broken every law, not just rules.

  15. If sissy graham is re-elected, people should be ashamed, he’s a a complete disgrace to himself and men in general. I have never seen a complete flip flop like he did with Donnie T, I believe some day he’ll end his life when he’s had enough of being embarrassed if what he did, just hope it’s all over the news

  16. yes Leningrad Lindsay, we are going to take your job away from you in 2020. Hope you enjoy your new rule when dems use it against you!

  17. Since the rules of the Senate are contrived by the Senators, they are all equally guilty of obstruction.
    Publish the rules and put any changes to a public referendum before they can be changed.
    Another whole week wasted.
    Federal term limits !!!!

  18. TRUMPS GIRL FRIEND LINDSEY!

  19. Lindsey Gram is Trump's puppets.

  20. Democrats Democrats you are going to have a get a dictator the way you're going
