Today, Lindsey Graham appeared on Fox News to fire back:
Have I taken leave of my senses by looking at a law that rewards people who break our own laws, that incentivizes the next wave of illegal immigration? Am I being unfair to say that we're gonna grant citizenship on our terms, not yours? Am I being unfair to say that we don't want laws in place that will require the third wave of illegal immigrants to be dealt with?
Most Americans find it odd that if you break our law, come to one of our hospitals, have a child, and that child becomes a citizen and we pay for the hospital pay, you turn around and leave, that that's not a really logical way to grant citizenship. Most Americans are offended that you could buy a visa, come over here, have your baby in America, turn around and leave, and you get citizenship through that process. I don't think that makes sense. Most countries don't do it.
