January 28, 2013. Press Release. The ACLU of South Carolina applauds Senator Graham’s leadership in addressing immigration reform and working in a bi-partisan manner to craft a solution to our broken immigration system. The principles released by the “Gang of Eight,” of which Sen. Graham is a key leader, are a key first step in this process. But at the same time, we are deeply concerned that the creation of a roadmap to citizenship is matched with provisions that endanger everyone's civil liberties and creates a system of legal limbo for millions of undocumented immigrants.
