SC Conservative Group Backs Graham In Immigration

Posted: Updated:

A conservative group in South Carolina is launching an ad campaign supporting U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's immigration reform proposal.

The South Carolina Conservative Action Alliance says the ad will be broadcast on television and radio stations across the state.

The chairman of the organization's board, former House Speaker David Wilkins, says it appreciates how Graham's proposal secures the borders and uses the E-Verify system to check whether a potential worker is supposed to be in this country when they are hired.

Wilkins also points out Graham's proposal has bipartisan support.

Graham's immigration stance often angers South Carolina's most conservative voters and was one of the biggest issues in his GOP primary challenge in 2008.

The alliance says it was founded to support common sense conservative solutions.
