Lindsey Graham (R-SC) urged President Donald Trump and Republicans to reject a deal that offers border wall money for a reduction in detention bed space for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. “It seems to be the trade-off is that we will give you a little more wall money if you will reduce the number of bed spaces available to hold people in detention, so that they don’t roam around the country, committing havoc,” Graham said. “What kind of a trade-off…
