WH Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley: Graham-Durbin Bill Made Immigration Problems Worse


White House deputy press secretary speaks to Laura Ingraham on FNC's 'The Ingraham Angle'about the fate of U.S. immigration policy after the president rejected the Lindsey Graham-Dick Durbin compromise bill.

HOGAN GIDLEY: The Graham-Durbin bill didn't cover any of those things the president outlined that he wanted, in fact, it made the situation worse. It increased illegal immigration, it granted amnesty to upwards fo eight million people, it did not fund the wall, and it kept chain migration going...

The Migration Policy Institute says we have about 3.25 million people here that are DREAMers and DACA recipients.

Graham and Durbin, also in the bill, wanted their parents to receive three years in the country, and then once they were all here, they gave them the right for chain migration as well. So you're talking about 8-10 million people by the time it was all done, it was absolutely incredible.
