Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) offered a pointed rebuttal Sunday to strategists and pundits who say embracing immigration reform will put GOP incumbents at risk in future primaries.
Graham said if Republicans let the status quo stand and hope illegal immigrants leave the United States because of poor conditions, they will obliterate their chances of winning the White House in two years.
“If we keep playing this game that self deportation is the only answer for the Republican Party, we will have destroyed our chances in 2016 and dealt a death blow to our party because by 2050 the majority of the country is going to be African American, Hispanic and Asian,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
So…let’s be sure I have this straight:
If the GOP doesn’t permit 20 million Hispanics here illegally a “path to citizenship,” they are guaranteeing that the party will lose future elections because Hispanics will dislike them.
However, guaranteeing 20 million future Democrat voters who already hate the GOP a path to citizenship will increase Republican chances of victory?
You bought-and-paid-for tool.
