Lindsey Graham wants to hold toddlers in jail at the border for 100 days

By Dan Desai Martin -
May 15, 2019

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wants to jail immigrant children for way longer than currently allowed by law.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wants to change the immigration law so that immigrant toddlers and children can be detained five times longer than currently allowed. In an interview with Sunday Morning Futures, Graham said he plans to introduce legislation to detain immigrant children for up to 100 days.

"You can only hold a minor for 20 days. We're going to go to 100 days," Graham said about legislation he plans to introduce on Wednesday.

The current 20-day limit is based on a 1997 settlement which says the U.S. government must swiftly release children into the custody of their parents, relatives, or others without undue delay. But Graham wants to lock up immigrant children for much, much longer.

Graham's legislation mirrors a desire by Trump to detain immigrant children longer.

1. Boycott South Carolina.

Literally, we wanted to visit one of its cities, but will not do so.

2. NBC Nightly News had a story last night

Its focus was on the children of military personnel and the toll that separation takes on the children and parents alike. A particularly heart-warming video of one boy seeing dad for the first time in months featured prominently. They also talked to the boy and his mother extensively about his behavior while dad was deployed, his anxiety, and the support the family found through a program designed for children of military personnel.

The entire time I just kept thinking about the immigrant children forcibly removed from their parents and kept in isolation for weeks. No contact with their parents, no timeline for their isolation, just open-ended torture of some of the most vulnerable persons on the planet. All courtesy of our government, funded by our tax dollars.
