A cynic might even get the idea that somewhere on Capitol Hill there is a Republican talking points memo on amnesty floating around — or at least a de facto memo.
In reality, what we have right now is not de facto amnesty. What we have right now is an administration that is refusing to enforce our immigration laws and openly defying Congress’s constitutional authority over our immigration policies. What we also have is a Congress in which many members of both parties seem unwilling or unable to defend the interests of the American people or hold a rogue administration accountable.
However, rather than reining in the Obama administration’s excesses, Rubio and some other prominent Republicans have decided to ratify the president’s abuse of discretionary authority by supporting a bill that not only grants de jure amnesty to illegal aliens, but gives his administration even greater discretion to ignore immigration laws in the future.
