Will Deporting DREAMers Hurt Republicans?

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) recently suggested that if the Republicans fail to take action on DACA ending the program “a lot of these young people [will] start getting deported,” it’s going to “destroy” the Republican Party.

Graham stated, “If we did nothing, and just ended DACA, and did nothing else and a lot of these young people start getting deported, then that would destroy the party. So, I don’t think that’s even a viable option. The options are to…punt it down the road, deal with it later. Or the president, engage again and see where the sweet spot’s at. And it’s pretty clear to me, that after those four votes, you know where the sweet spot’s at, which is border security for DACA.”
