Lindsey Graham's Strange Rationale For Immigration Reform

Lindsey Graham turned to Strom Thurmond for inspiration.

After enduring a zillion questions about Donald Trump, the four candidates on the B-team were primed for bear, with immigration policy being the target.

After Bobby Jindal declared that he would jail all mayors of sanctuary cities...


...Lindsey Graham argued for immigration policy so there would be more workers per retiree, and because people aren't fathering children after they've reached retirement age.

"Strom Thurmond had four kids after he turned 67," said Graham. "If you're not willing to do that, we need to have immigrants."

Say what?

But hey, it rated him a clip and a post, just because it was that bizarre.
