A few weeks ago, Graham madeÂ his threat to to Democrats and immigration advocates:
“If the health care bill goes through this weekend, that will, in my view, pretty much kill any chance of immigration reform passing the Senate this year,” he said.
Democrats passed healthcare using reconciliation, and Graham made good on his promise:
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, one of the Democrats’ most likely potential allies on a range of legislation, said in an interview he would no longer work with the majority party on an immigration overhaul. He said because of the Democrats’ tactics in passing the package, the “well has been poisoned.”
Yet in an interview with Univision, he comes around again, and states that he will work on immigration reform.
