The GOP finally realized the futility of drafting meaningful legislation with a Democrat-controlled Senate and a president who has indicated he’ll undo anything he dislikes with the stroke of a pen.
Any attempt at “comprehensive” reform under these circumstances would, at best, result in a new slew of costly-but-ineffective measures and, at worst, the president’s goal of outright citizenship for the nation’s more than 11 million Democrat-leaning illegal immigrants.
Have we forgotten the last attempt at massive “reform” legislation – the
debacle known as Obamacare?
Better to hold off until after mid-term elections when, hopefully, common sense will be more in vogue in Washington. Besides, illegal immigrants aren’t going anywhere; lax enforcement of existing laws assures us that.
Immigration “reform” was a Democrat-Republican suicide pact in which only Republicans pulled the trigger. Thank heavens they didn’t go through with it.
