    Lindsey 'hell hole' Graham

    Yeah, Durbin ratted about Trump (if Trump actually said it) after a private meeting, a day before the President signed a MLK proclamation.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of those in the meeting Thursday where President Trump reportedly called some developing nations “sh—hole” countries, used similar language himself during the last big immigration debate, calling Mexico and other Latin American nations “hellholes.”

    The South Carolina Republican was arguing for the need for stiffer enforcement to stop a new wave of illegal immigrants, blaming the jobs magnet for enticing millions of people to flee their home countries for the U.S.

    “The people coming across the southern border live in hellholes. They don’t like that. They want to come here. Our problem is we can’t have everybody in the world who lives in a hellhole come to America,” Mr. Graham said during a 2013 debate in the Judiciary Committee on an immigration bill he co-authored.

    The senator continued: “There are 11 million people coming through the southern border ‘cause they come from countries where they can’t find work, and life is miserable. So it seems to me that if you can control who gets a job you’ve gone a long way in controlling illegal immigration. Because as long as the jobs are available in America you can’t build a fence high enough to stop people.”

    Then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, now Mr. Trump’s attorney general, stepped in to correct his colleague.

    “It’s not a hellhole, it has great things going on in Mexico, we’re proud of the people in Mexico,” Mr. Sessions said.

    Guess Graham has a "base" to appeal to as well.

    Pretty shitty thing for an elected official to say about someone’s home.

    Graham is no friend. He is despised by many. He's amnesty big time. Lindsey is a democrats best friend on immigration.
