WASHINGTON – Today, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) will lead a Congressional delegation to McAllen, Texas to observe the crisis at the southern border.  The delegation will join United States Vice President Mike Pence and officials from the Department of Homeland Security.  

PARTICIPANTS: 

  • U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina)
  • U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas)
  • U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio)
  • U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah)

On Thursday, Graham addressed the border crisis at a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting and urged his colleagues to work together on a legislative solution that would end pull factors and stop the flow of illegal immigration. 

  • GRAHAM: Word is out on the street in Central America that if you make it to the United States, try to get caught, don’t evade capture, claim asylum – your chances of being deported are very, very low. I’m trying to do something about that.”   https://youtu.be/NLCbgvqG8Fg?t=73
