Democrats should emulate Mexico when it comes to securing the U.S southwest border, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in reaction to President Donald Trump’s deal with Mexico to help shore up U.S. border security.
Sen. Graham Tweeted Sunday that hopes Democrats, like Mexico, will eventually work with, instead of against, Trump:
“Wish Democrats would be like Mexico and work with — not against — President @realDonaldTrump to fix a broken immigration system.
“I appreciate the Mexican government working with Trump Administration and hope Democrats will eventually do the same!”
Trump echoed Graham’s sentiments on Monday, tweeting that, “Now with our new deal, Mexico is doing more for the USA on Illegal Immigration than the Democrats.”
“In fact, the Democrats are doing NOTHING,” Trump said, arguing that Democrats’ open border agenda invites crime.
Under the agreement announced following bilateral talks in Washington, Mexico agreed to an “enforcement surge” including “deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border,” the State Department said.
