Even Pro-Amnesty Lindsey Graham Says Obama Immigration Move ‘Possibly Illegal’

And unwise at best.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took to Twitter Friday to attack President Obama’s move to grant effective amnesty to young illegal immigrants:

He was among the first lawmakers to react to the surprise announcement.

“President Obama’s attempt to go around Congress and the American people is at best unwise and possibly illegal,” he tweeted.

Graham, a former Air Force prosecutor, said the move, “regardless of motivation, will entice people to break our laws.”

While Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano insisted the program “is not amnesty,” other senior administration officials admitted that the program will stop illegal immigrants from being deported, even if a judge has already ordered it.

On the same Friday conference call in which Napolitano said the program was not amnesty, the senior administration official said that the program would eliminate some illegal immigrants from the “universe of people subject to immigration enforcement.”

In other words, the program would prevent some illegals from being deported – effectively granting them amnesty.
