Trump Could Disrupt Graham's Bill To Help Undocumented Immigrants

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican, told Politico he's been talking to Republicans and Democrats about a bill to protect undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.
That's in direct opposition to one of Donald Trump's campaign promises: to undo President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals directive aimed at giving legal protection to more than 700,000 undocumented immigrants.
After ending his presidential bid, Graham became one of Trump's biggest detractors in the Republican Party. Graham said he couldn't go where Trump was "taking the [Republican] party" and called on party members to unendorse Trump.
