Immigration overhaul is key, Graham warns

Blocking it will doom GOP, says S.C. Republican

WASHINGTON — Republicans are ‘‘in a demographic death spiral’’ and will fail in their effort to win the presidency if the party blocks an immigration overhaul, a leading GOP senator said Sunday.

Senator Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican who helped write a bipartisan immigration bill under debate in the Senate, said conservatives who are trying to block the measure will doom the party and all but guarantee a Democrat will remain in the White House after 2016’s election.
